According to the New York Post's Page Six, siblings Jade and Baddie Gi, who worked at Angels Strip Club, said they were attacked by members of Cardi’s team in late August because of allegations they had sex with the rapper’s husband, Offset.

The sisters claim bottles and chairs were thrown at them by Cardi’s entourage and they’re now suing the former Love and Hip-Hop star for causing bodily harm, the Post reported.

Representatives for Cardi B didn't respond to a request for comment.

Just a few weeks ago, Cardi was involved in an altercation with fellow rapper Nicki Minaj at New York Fashion Week.
