Cardi B arrived at court in a pink outfit and unlike her wardrobe choice, the news she received while inside might not end up being too bright. According to TMZ, prosecutors may be looking to upgrade her charges from misdemeanours because her case is now being heard by a grand jury. With a grand jury following the trial, the charges that Cardi B was already facing for reckless endangerment and assault could be changed to something more serious. The decision to consult a grand jury was reportedly made after “further investigation,” which leaves the situation looking pretty unclear.
Of course, Cardi is only looking at stiffer charges in the worst case scenario. Since the strip club beatdown, Jade has started dating Tekashi 6ix9ine and Baddie Gi, the other woman involved, has seen her online following grow steadily.
