Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, was released on her recognizance and ordered back in court on Jan. 31, CBS2’s Natalie Duddridge reports.

Lacking her usual entourage and appearing with just two security with her, she smiled and looked calm. As she left a person in the crowd yelled a question about her Grammy nomination announced this morning on CBS.

Cardi B and nine members of her entourage allegedly threw bottles, chairs and a hookah pipe at bartenders inside Angels Gentlemen’s Club back on Aug. 29.

The fight reportedly started over suspicion the star’s soon-to-be-ex-husband, Migos rapper Offset, was cheating with a woman who worked there.

Cardi B was charged with misdemeanor assault and reckless endangerment. She turned herself in to police in October.

“We’re aware of no evidence that she caused anybody any harm at the club that night. We expect the matter is going to be resolved expeditiously,” her lawyer said at the time.

Had she not show up, she could have faced jail time after she failed to appear at an arraignment Monday,

Friday’s court date isn’t her only commitment. She’s also expected to perform at the Jingle Ball concert at Madison Square Garden.
