Cardi B is once again being sued, but this time her fiance, Offset, joins the controversy. As TMZ reported, Giovanni Arnold claims he was attacked by members of Cardi B and Offset’s entourage. The incident occurred on May 9 when Cardi B and Offset attended the Met Gala in New York City. Arnold, a fan, approached Cardi for an autograph near the Mark Hotel on Madison Ave. after the event (around 2 a.m.), and that’s when things took a turn for the worse.

As the New York Daily News reported, police initially said that members of Cardi B’s entourage, “thought Arnold was getting too close and gave him a thumping.” But as seen in the footage below (which contains strong language and some violence), a video of the happenings tells a different story. As the TMZ report documented (and not shown clearly in the video), when asked for an autograph, Cardi B told Giovanni, “F**k outta here n***a, I will slap the s**t out of you.”

The footage then tells the rest of the story. The fan expressed disappointment and told the hip hop artist to not beat him up over an autograph. It was at this point that Offset was passing by the fan, and he told Arnold to shut up before “a n***a beat you out here.”
