Cardi B also thinks the police unfairly targetted her husband Offset and pinned felony charges on him.
Recall that the rapper whose real name is Kiari Cephus was stopped in Georgia for having illegally tinted windows, and when a search of the SUV was conducted by the officers, it was discovered that he was carrying at least one gun – a felony since he is a convicted felon on probation – and marijuana.
Offset was booked into Clayton County Jail and charged with two felonies –one, for possession of a weapon during a crime, and possession of a firearm by a felon; as well as misdemeanors for improper lane change and possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.
Reacting to the update, the rapper’s attorney Drew Findling claimed that the the guns belonged to Offset’s assistant, a licensed gun holder, who was in the car at the time of the incident. Findling also expressed his skepticism regarding the case, saying that Offset was being targeted because he is a successful African-America.
Now Cardi B, according to TMZ, is echoing same thoughts.
“We’re told she’s been echoing Offset’s lawyer’s claim that he was pulled over for doing nothing more than being a rich, successful black rapper,” the media house reports. Adding, “Our Cardi sources say she’s also been doubling down on what the attorney told us … that the guns found by police did not belong to Offset, adding he doesn’t own any firearms. We’re told she doesn’t believe he broke any laws.”
We can’t wait to see how this pans out.
