Rap star Cardi B has been charged with assault for allegedly attacking two female bartenders at a Flushing strip club in August, police say.

The rapper, whose legal name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, has been charged with reckless endangerment and assault. She turned herself in to the 109 precinct this morning.

Police say that Cardi threw a chair at two bartenders while at Angels NYC, a strip club at 32-17 College Point Blvd., at around 3:00  a.m. on Aug. 29.

Gossip website TMZ reported that Cardi was visiting the strip club because popular hip hop trio Migos, which her husband Offset plays with, was performing. 

The site said that Cardi attacked the two women because she believed that they had slept with her husband.

Cardi B also made headlines this September when she got into a physical fight with rapper Nicki Minaj at the Harper’s Bizaar Icons party at the Plaza Hotel.
