Cardi B appears in court on the same day she was nominated for a Grammy

Rapper Cardi B appeared in court Friday after a summons was issued on October 1 for misdemeanor reckless endangerment and assault.

A judge has issued orders of protection against the platinum rapper in a case involving a melee at a New York strip club.

Her lawyer has said she didn't harm anybody.

Police said Cardi B and her entourage were at the club when she argued with a 23-year-old bartender. They say a fight broke out during which chairs, bottles and hookah water pipes were thrown, slightly injuring the woman and another employee.

There were chaotic scenes outside the court, with paparazzi asking her how it felt to be nominated for a Grammy and appear in court on the same day.

Cardi B's Invasion of Privacy is among the nominees announced Friday for the 2019 Grammy Awards' album of the year. She scored a total of five nominations.

Her next court date is January 31.
