Cardi B asks court not to use fight with Nicki Minaj as evidence in assault trial


MEGA/WENN

Cardi B is asking a judge not to allow prosecutors to use her past altercation with Nicki Minaj in her upcoming assault trial.

In 2020, a female security guard named Emani Ellis sued Cardi B for alleged assault in 2018. Ellis said she was working at a medical building in Beverly Hills when she tried to record Cardi B on her phone as she was leaving the building.

Sources said Cardi and Ellis started yelling at each other and the rapper struck Ellis in the head. Ellis claimed Cardi spit on her and hurled racial slurs at her.

Ellis is seeking punitive damages for assault, battery and infliction of emotional distress.

The lawsuit also accused Cardi of using her “celebrity status to get [Ellis] fired from her job as a security guard.” A rep for the medical building denied that claim to TMZ.

Rather than settle with Ellis out of court, Cardi is taking her chances with a jury trial.

According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, Cardi filed a motion asking the court to suppress any mention of her altercation with Nicki in the trial.

In her motion, Cardi asked that Ellis’s claims be determined based on the testimony of witnesses with personal knowledge of the alleged incident “between Defendant and Plaintiff.”

Cardi argued that other alleged acts of violence between her and others be kept out of evidence as well.

Her attorneys claimed evidence of previous fights “should be excluded because, by law, such evidence cannot show that Defendant acted similarly on this single occasion with Plaintiff.”

Cardi and her arch enemy Nicki had an altercation at a Harper’s Bazaar after party in New York in 2018. Sources said Cardi went up to Nicki’s table to confront her. She then threw a stiletto shoe at Nicki’s head. Security intervened before the two ladies could snatch each other’s wigs.

Cardi previously settled a lawsuit with two sisters who were attacked by Cardi’s goons at a nightclub where they worked as bartenders.

Back in July, Cardi threw a microphone that hit a fan at a Las Vegas concert.
