Cardi B finally shows up for court appearance

Rapper Cardi B made it to a Queens court hearing Friday morning after missing a previous appearance earlier in the week.

The rainbow-haired “I Like It” artist — donning a brown broad-rimmed hat, a black fur-trimmed coat, black pants, and black Christian Louboutin heeled boots — arrived at Queens Criminal Court at 8:56 a.m., minutes before a 9 o’clock deadline.

Cardi B skipped an appearance Monday and Queens Criminal Court Judge Sean Dunn told her attorney that he could have the rapper arrested if she missed her next appearance.

“I want you to convey to her that it’s not acceptable that she’s not here today,” Dunn told lawyer Jeff Kern of his 26-year-old client. “You should inform her that if she doesn’t show up, that unless circumstances change, it’s very likely that the court will issue a bench warrant for her arrest.”

Kern told the judge that Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, was too busy being a famous rap star elsewhere to make Monday’s appearance.

“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,” Kern told Dunn.

The performer is facing charges of reckless endangerment and third-degree assault over a fight at Angels Strip Club in Flushing on Aug. 29.
