The artist, whose birth name is Belcalis Almánzar and is known for hits including “WAP” and “Bodak Yellow,” said in a statement Thursday that in the past, she had made bad decisions that she was not afraid to own up to.
Cardi B, 29, must complete 15 days of community service after pleading guilty to third-degree assault and second-degree reckless endangerment, the Queens District Attorney’s office said.
Cardi B said she is looking forward to moving past the situation and getting back to music and her fans.
Her two co-defendants also pleaded guilty, the Associated Press reported.
District Attorney Melinda Katz said in a statement that her office was satisfied with the resolution.
“No one is above the law,” Katz said. “In pleading guilty today, Ms. Belcalis Almanzar and two co-defendants have accepted responsibility for their actions.”
The sentence also included a three-year order of protection for the two victims, according to the DA’s office.
