Cardi B and Offset’s security team have been accused of attacking an autograph hunter outside a Met Gala party early Tuesday morning (08May18).
The Bodak Yellow rapper, who is expecting her first child with the Migos star, wore a stunning white religious-style gown designed by Jeremy Scott to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Met Gala on Monday night.
In video footage obtained by TMZ.com, the hip-hop star left an after-party at The Mark Hotel with her fiancee around 2am on Tuesday morning, and refused to sign autographs for the waiting fans calling out her name, and a man can be heard yelling, “I’m an autograph hound.”
In the next clip, a crowd of people can be seen punching and kicking someone laying on the sidewalk, and when the group walks away and leaves the person on the ground, another person runs in and stomps on his face.
“Drama at the met after party! Migos people beat up crazy fan!!!!!!!” the onlooker wrote in the caption to the second video.
Autograph seeker Giovanni Arnold has told The Blast he approached the couple as they waited in the car outside the hotel, and Offset didn’t like the way he approached Cardi and allegedly told three members of his entourage to “go after” him. He claims he was jumped by three men who pushed him to the ground and beat him up before running away.
He was taken to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital in an ambulance around 2:30am to be treated for neck and back pain, but officers say there were no visible signs of trauma.
Cardi, Offset and the rest of Migos had left the scene by the time the emergency services arrived. The New York Police Department is investigating the incident as a misdemeanor assault and are only looking to speak with the three men, not the music stars.
