Cardi B reported to police after ‘fan hit by microphone’


A woman who says she was hit by a microphone that Cardi B hurled into the crowd at a Las Vegas concert has filed a police report for battery, authorities said.

The US rapper was performing at Drai’s Beachclub on Saturday when a large drink was thrown on stage, footage posted on social media showed.

Cardi B – whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar – appeared shocked for a moment and then threw her microphone towards an audience member.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said a woman reported a battery case to the force, a day after the concert.

The woman – who was not named – said “she was struck by an item that was thrown from the stage” during a concert on Saturday, police said in a statement.

The incident has been documented in a police report but no arrests have been made, officials said.

Sky’s US partner NBC News has reached out to representatives for Cardi B for comment. Drai’s Las Vegas did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
