Friday was a big day for Cardi B, for more than one reason.

The rapper (whose real name is Belcalis Almánzar) was nominated for five Grammys — only a handful of other artists earned more nods — for her album Invasion of Privacy, her songs “I Like It” and “Be Careful,” as well as for “Girls Like You,” the Maroon 5 track on which she’s featured. (Cardi B received her first Grammy nomination in 2018 for her performance of “Bodak Yellow.”)

Unfortunately, Cardi B heard the news as she left a left a New York City courthouse, where she appeared at a hearing about an Aug. 29 incident at Angels Strip Club in Flushing, N.Y.

Sisters Jade and Baddie Gi, who worked as bartenders at the establishment, claim that members of Cardi B’s posse assaulted them after she instructed them to do so. At the time of the fight, TMZ reported that Cardi B suspected Jade had slept with her husband, Migos singer Offset.

Cardi B failed to appear at her arraignment in the matter earlier in the week, and the judge had warned her that he would issue a bench warrant for her arrest if she didn’t appear this time. When she did, Cardi was ordered to stay away from the women both in real life and on social media.

The “Taki Taki” rapper announced her split from Offset, her husband since September 2017, on Tuesday. Their breakup comes five months after the birth of their daughter, Kulture.

“We are really good friends and we are really good business partners — you know he’s always somebody that I run to to talk to — and we got a lot of love for each other, but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time,” Cardi said on social media.

She added, “It’s nobody fault. I guess we just grew out of love, but we are not together anymore. I don’t know, it might take time to get a divorce, and I’m going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father.”

Cardi is due back in court in January, according to NBC New York. She won’t find out how many Grammys she’ll take home until Feb. 10, 2019.
