New York Court Threatens To Arrest Cardi B
A New York judge on Monday warned Cardi B that she risked arrest if she failed to show up in court on Friday, over an assault charge in connection with a fight at a strip club.
The 26-year-old performer, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, surrendered to police in October after being accused of involvement in the Aug. 15 incident at the Angels NYC strip club in the borough of Queens.
Judge Scott Dunn told her lawyer “to convey to her that it’s not acceptable that she’s not here today,” after she failed to show up for her scheduled appearance.
“You should inform her that if she doesn’t show up to the arraignment on December 7, that unless the circumstances change, then it’s very likely the court will issue a bench warrant for her arrest,” Dunn said to her lawyer, Jeff Kern.
Cardi B, a two-time Grammy award nominee, has topped music charts in recent years with hits “Bodak Yellow” and “Girls Like You,” a collaboration with Maroon 5.
On her verified Instagram profile under the “Story” section, Cardi B early Monday posted a video featuring her on aircraft and another showing a vibrant blue ocean. There was no indication where the photos were taken or when she may have been at the locations.
Kern, who admitted that he rarely had direct communication with Cardi B but spoke with her through business managers, apologized to the judge and blamed her failure to appear in court on poor communication.
“I can tell you my client knew of the date, but there was a previously standing commitment for today and tomorrow,” he said, assuring the judge that his client was not a flight risk.
Kern said Cardi B had asked for an adjournment before Monday but the court had denied it. She was initially due in court on Oct. 29, but the court allowed her to reschedule.
According to the New York Times, Cardi B accused one of two sisters who tend bar at the Angels NYC club of having an affair with her husband, Offset, who is part of the rap trio Migos. Citing police, the newspaper said Cardi B’s bodyguards and members of her entourage attacked the sisters with bottles and chairs.
Cardi B’s agents and Joe Tacopina, an attorney representing the two bartenders, did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment on Monday.
She has also made headlines for an ongoing feud with rapper Nicki Minaj, with whom she had a physical altercation during an event at this year’s New York Fashion Week. After a series of posts on Twitter and Instagram directed at each other, the two agreed on a cease-fire in October.
How I Got a Big Scar on My Hand-Uche Jumbo
Uche Jombo ventured into the Nigerian movie industry in 1999. She has since made a name for herself as a screenwriter, actor, producer and presently as a director. Her latest work ,’Heaven on my Mind’, is the first collaboration between two talented actors, Uche Jombo and Ini Edo as co-producers, speaking to DUPE AYINLA-OLASUNKANMI, the mother of one reveals some interesting issues. Enjoy
Why partner Ini Edo partner on this project?
I felt she has the strength that might not be mine. For me, I feel partnership is about two people bringing in their strength to the table. I actually wanted her to act in the movie, so I sent the script to her to read and then she liked it and suggested partnering.
The idea of partnership came from her and It was the best decision I made I must tell you, because this job has taken a lot. We have encountered a lot of challenges like shooting , light hitting somebody, having to recast and also re-shoot. If I was the sole executive producer, I would have probably gone mad.
So, I think sometimes, when things happen on a project, you see them as being blessing. Like having a partner and then all the expenses are being shared.
What was at the back of your mind when all the challenges came?
If you look on my right arm, I have a big scare there. It is from the set. We were shooting on a particular day and the light just fell on me. This job most time, and I would say most of the job that has troubled me the most are my personal jobs.
Sometimes, you can have it easy and the movie will still come out well. I just feel anything towards stressing you, is probably preparing you to do better or as a sign that the job will come out well. Because on this particular project, we had to recast as particular character, but the time I went back to the studio and watched the other actress playing the role better, I knew it was a good call. I would not have known or seen that if the challenge did not come up.
Most time I do not see stress that come with production as giving up, because it makes the job perfect and better.
Did the re-casting mean additional cost?
Yes, that is why I say having a partnership is sometimes good. In such case, the whole cost will not be on you alone. You will really feel the heaviness of going above you budget. You feel that more, when you are the only one funding the project.
On this, did you spend above your budget?
Yes, we did. And like I mentioned earlier where the cost is N500, you only get to drop N250. Ini Edo was the calm of my madness on this set. When I try to push above budget and I am freaking out, because I am a very tense person, she will like ‘calm down, we will do it’.
On this production, things had happened that I was glad that I had a partner. Because that was supposed to happen, but I would have freaked out if I was the only one handling the project.
The title sounds like it is a religious movie. Is it?
Heaven on my Mind, I need to clear is not a Christian movie. Heaven is the name of a girl in the movie. You have to watch the movie to know the rest of the story.
How did you pull your cast together?
We had an amazing cast on this project like; Ini Edo, Mercy Aigbe, Femi Adebayo, Adunni Ade, the lead actor, Ray Mondi and others. And of course human beings are difficult to manage and we are talking about adults here. But at the end of the day, we were able to pull through. We started 2016 towards 2017, but when the accident happened, we had to put a hold to the production.
What was the idea behind the mixed cast, English and Yoruba?
When producing, I always take into consideration characters who fit into a particular role. So casting for this project, I had to pick those that fitted into the roles because it was a Yoruba character.
I like to cast actor in their comfort zone, it helps with the story telling and sometimes when you cast an actor that is not versatile in that area, it destroys the production. And it is a language that they are comfortable with.
It is a drama-comedy on relationship, marriage, whether you like it or not it is a business transaction.
But what happens to the era of DVDs?
Honestly, I miss those days. Even now, people are afraid of putting their films in DVDs. But I think we should still do that. There is still market for it, but it is just that the piracy is still very high. There are some who would still want some movies as collection.
Will you be considering it on this project?
It is a partnership. I will have to discuss that with my partner and if it works, we can consider it. We are going to run across Nigerian cinemas and after that, do an online cinema too where people will get to watch it. We will premiere it for a weekend.
This is considered to be your directorial debut. Isn’t it?
I need to clear that, it is not my directorial debut. I directed a movie while in school. But this is my first directorial movie that is going into the cinemas. So I think that is where the mix-up came from.
I have directed several movies, but this being my first cinematic directorial movie. It is a huge mark in my books and I really appreciate everyone who had faith in me.
