American rapper Cardi B is now a suspect in a battery case after new footage showed her throwing a microphone at a fan who hurled a drink at her mid-performance in Las Vegas on Saturday.
The WAP hitmaker was seen hurling the microphone from the stage after getting splashed by a drink thrown by a fan during a gig at Drai’s Beachclub.
A clip showing a new angle of the incident – captioned: ‘When you f*** around and find out’ – showed the fan who apparently threw the drink saying ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry’ after Cardi hurled the microphone.
Security are then seen making their way to the woman before seemingly escorting her away.
The woman who was hit by the mic went to Las Vegas Metro PD the next day to report the incident, reports TMZ.
She told police she had been struck by the microphone thrown from the stage but it is not known if the woman told police she had thrown liquid at the musician first.
In a further intriguing turn of events, another fan has claimed on social media that she was hit by the mic, and said it did not strike the person who threw the drink at Cardi.
The night prior, Cardi was performing at Drai’s Nightclub when she became irritated after the DJ allegedly cut off her songs too early.
In a clip shared to social media by user kfen777, the entertainer was seen shouting out her name before turning around and flinging the microphone in the direction of the DJ as if she was throwing a football, before walking off stage.
