1. Cardi B pleads guilty in strip club brawl

This time, "WAP" stands for "won't approach prison." Cardi B has avoided jail time by taking a last-minute plea deal following a 2018 strip club brawl. The rapper was arrested that year for allegedly orchestrating an attack on two bartenders at a strip club in Queens, apparently because she believed one of them slept with her husband. The case was headed to trial, with jury selection scheduled for Friday. But she has now pleaded guilty to the misdemeanors of third-degree assault and reckless endangerment. The deal lets her avoid jail time, though she received 15 days of community service, according to TMZ. "Part of growing up and maturing is being accountable for your actions," she said, admitting she's "made some bad decisions in my past that I am not afraid to face and own up to." But enough about her collaboration with Maroon 5.
