- A judge has issued orders of protection against platinum rapper Cardi B in a case involving a melee at a Queens strip club. "Am I this famous?" she reportedly said, with paparazzi documenting her arrival. They say a fight broke out during which chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown, slightly injuring the woman and another employee.

The rapper received a total of five Grammy Award nominations on Friday. She appeared in court wearing long rainbow hair and Christian Louboutin boots, along with a floppy hat and a fur-trimmed jacket. Queens Criminal Court Judge Scott Dunn agreed and allowed Cardi B to be released on her own recognizance.

Prosecutors asked Queens Criminal Court to set bail at $2,500 (£1,965).

Hours before her Grammy nomination was announced Cardi B was awaiting her fate for a pending legal battle that involved a reported strip club brawl earlier this summer.

On Friday, the judge ordered Cardi B to avoid contact with the bartenders, a spokesperson for the Queens District Attorney told CNN. "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".

Video that circulated on social media showed Cardi B lunging toward someone and being held back at the Harper's Bazaar Icons party.
