After speculation that police arrested Star Brim, Cardi B confirmed the news on Instagram.
Star, who is Cardi's best friend, was reportedly arrested for wire fraud and could spend up to 15 years in prison if she's convicted. On Monday, the rapper posted a photo of the two of them with the caption, "Miss her already."
Rumors of Star Brim's arrest followed quickly after that.
Cardi took to Instagram again on Tuesday to explain exactly what happened to her friend.
“For two and a half years Star been out on bail. She got caught by the Feds and lost a lot of sh*t," she wrote. After rumors circulated that Star got nabbed by police, Cardi set the record straight and said she willingly turned herself in to serve the rest of her time.
"Shorty been prepare for this and turn herself in early cause she just want to get sh*t over with and do her time," Cardi continued. "I mean why wouldn’t she? after she finish her bid no more probation, can travel everywhere and she can live a normal love life!"
Since news of her arrest spread, there's been speculation online that Star might "snitch" on Cardi to reduce a possible lengthy sentence. The two have been friends since they were both strippers, and have supposedly been open about committing multiple crimes together in the past.
Cardi has opened up about her past with the Bloods gang. She was pressured to join by members she was hanging out with when she was 16 but was scared for her future when she realized it was a "lifelong commitment."
She's mentioned the Bloods a few times in her songs as a nod. She said she still wants to "rep" them because you "don't leave your people behind."
The last time Star, who has also been labeled as a "gang affiliate" made headlines was when she was accused of leaking Blac Chyna's sex tape. She said she retweeted the tape because she found it "entertaining" but denied actually leaking it in a video.
“I hate the internet. I miss the good old days when I could just post and it wasn’t, like, reflected on my friends, like, ‘Cardi’s friend’… like stop saying that… cuz at the end of the day, I have my own mind. I post what I want to post,” Star said.
It's still not clear who leaked the video.
