Cardi B Denies Involvement In 2018 Attack On Man Who Wanted Her Autograph, Asks Judge To Dismiss Lawsuit

Cardi B Denies Involvement In 2018 Attack On Man Who Wanted Her Autograph, Asks Judge To Dismiss Lawsuit

Cardi B is maintaining her innocence.

The “Up” rapper was recently sued by Giovanni Arnold for an altercation that went down at the 2018 Met Gala (you know, where she and Nicki Minaj also had an incident). He’s accusing Cardi B of having three security guards beat him up for requesting an autograph. However, Cardi B claims that Giovanni Arnold’s story is a false narrative–alleging that he orchestrated the attack himself for money and that she was totally uninvolved, according to TMZ.

Cardi B alleges that the supposed victim was actually the one who started the issue when he allegedly berated her and Offset for not giving an autograph. Additionally, she alleges that Giovanni Arnold can be heard on video making suspicious remarks, specifically:

“Please beat me up. I’ll take all of your money.”

The rapper also claims that she does not know the people who attacked the autograph hound and never gave them instructions to do so. As such, she feels that the entire lawsuit should be dismissed.

In her statements, Cardi B is also laughing off the alleged victim’s claim that he thought the star was going to attack him, as she was seven months pregnant with her and Offset‘s daughter–Kulture Kiari–at the time.

Cardi B has not publicly commented on the matter, but–from the legal documents–it looks like one thing’s clear: she’s claiming she had nothing to do with what went down with Giovanni Arnold.
