Cardi B complains about having to wake up early for court-ordered community service… despite getting deadline extension from judge
Cardi B headed to court-ordered community service in style on Friday after pleading guilty to misdemeanor charges in September over a 2018 strip club brawl.
The rapper, 30, reported to court last month after failing to complete a 15-day community service sentence as part of her plea deal, but a judge later extended the deadline to March 1.
‘My brains are burning from waking up early, community service then studio….but I did the crime “I only have myself to blame,”‘ tweeted Cardi, who snapped a mirror selfie just moments before leaving for duty.
The WAP hitmaker was decked out in designer goods, including a $2850 cropped beige bomber jacket over a black shirt and tan heeled boots.
She carried a Balenciaga Yellow Tape hourglass bag, which can cost upwards of $3,000.

Cardi kicked off her community service commitment shortly after her January 17 appearance at Queens Criminal Court, where she was given a March 1 extension.
On January 20 she revealed on Twitter that she was already on her ‘second day’ and urged her followers to ‘Obey the law.’

According to prosecutors, Cardi B and her entourage were targeting employees of Angels Strip Club in Flushing, Queens, over an apparent personal dispute.
She allegedly told eight people, including Tawana Jackson-Morel and Jeffrey Bush, to assault sisters Baddie Gi and Jade.
In 2019, Cardi B rejected a plea deal that would have given her a conditional discharge. Prosecutors then presented the case to a grand jury and obtained an indictment that included the two felony charges.
During sentencing, prosecutors described the melee saying: ‘The victims allegedly had glass bottles hurled at them, alcoholic drinks thrown in their faces and one woman’s head was slammed into the bar.’
After receiving her light penalty for the incident in September, the rapper went to Little Italy in Manhattan where she celebrated the decision.
Speaking to reporters as she left court, Cardi said: ‘I’m feeling like I look: good.’
The plea deal also stipulated that Cardi supply the court with a DNA sample, and prohibits her from contacting the victims in the case for three years.
Her statement following the sentence read in full: ‘As a mother, it’s a practice that I am trying to instill in my children, but the example starts with me.

‘I’ve made some bad decisions in my past that I am not afraid to face and own up to. These moments don’t define me and they are not reflective of who I am now.’
‘I’m looking forward to moving past this situation with my family and friends and getting back to the things I love the most—the music and my fans.’
In a brief statement, her lawyer Drew Findling told DailyMail.com: ‘Personally and professionally, Cardi is dedicated to community service and charitable endeavors. She therefore appreciates the court giving her until March 1st to complete her community service commitment in Queens, New York.’
