Cardi B Hit With A Lawsuit Walking In To Shoot Her New Hip-Hop Show On Netflix
(AllHipHop News) Rap sensation Cardi B has been served with court papers relating to an alleged beatdown suffered by an autograph-seeking fan last year.
Giovanni Arnold filed suit against Cardi, her husband Offset, and bosses at The Mark Hotel in New York after he was reportedly attacked outside by three bodyguards.
The scuffle occurred as he attempted to get close to the couple following the Met Gala in May when Cardi was seven months pregnant.
He claimed to have been hospitalized for face, neck, back, and body injuries and demanded unspecified damages.
In August, Offset was served with the lawsuit notice, and on Wednesday night, Cardi was also handed the documents by a process server as she headed to work on upcoming Netflix hip-hop competition show "Rhythm + Flow" in the Big Apple.
Video footage shows the new mom joking around with the paparazzi before a man steps into the frame and serves her with the court papers, dropping them by her feet as she makes her way to the SOB's venue.
A shocked Cardi, who welcomed daughter Kulture in July, ignored the documents and simply walked indoors.
The plaintiff recently explained he had waited to serve Cardi until a few months after she gave birth, "out of respect and consideration for her and her baby's wellbeing."
