Cardi B Skips Court To Shoot Music Video — Lawyer Basically Says She’s Too Busy & Famous For It!
It feels like this is exclusively a Cardi B problem! LOLz!!
The nearly naked Bodak Yellow rapper was filming a music video in Miami this week all decked out in body paint that made her look like a tiger (honestly, you need to see the pics HERE)!
Now that alone doesn’t seem so strange, because, hey, it’s Cardi B! LOLz!
The story here, though, is this: she was twerking for the cameras on South Beach when she instead SHOULD have been sitting in a courtroom in NYC!!
That’s right… the starlet was supposed to show up in court on Monday to begin to face the consequences in her alleged strip club beatdown case. Definitely not happening when she’s down in Miami tiger twerkin’ the day away.
But don’t worry, y’all! Her lawyer had a truly incredible excuse for why his client didn’t show up in court: she’s too famous for the law!
Seriously. Cardi’s lawyer Jeff Kern said this to the judge in court on Monday morning when she failed to show up:
“As you probably know she is a fairly notable hip-hop artist. My client knew the date but there was a previously scheduled commitment for today and tomorrow. You all need to understand this is not about her saying, ‘Screw going to court. I got things to do. I’m important.’ She has managers, she has business people, she has things scheduled. So it’s not like we can just say, ‘Hey you got to come to court on Monday.'”
Ha!!! Too famous for court… now that’s a new one! But you wanna know the craziest part?! THE EXCUSE WORKED!!!
Page Six reports the judge accepted that answer, and let Cardi and her lawyer off “with a stern warning,” declining to put out a bench warrant for her immediate arrest.
Presumably, she’ll actually make it to court next time she’s called back!
What do U think about all this, Perezcious readers?? Let us know in the comments (below)!!!
