Cardi B's Unexpected Crips Feud Beefs Up Security Around NBA All-Star Weekend
New York rapper Cardi B doesn't even know what she's ignited by taking a playful swipe at the Crips. Turns out Los Angeles venues are playing it uber safe when the NBA All-Star Weekend festivities start up in the coming days.
According to reports, at least three nightclubs have planned to beef up security in case any Crips tensions bleed into Cardi's hosted spots.
Cardi has an exclusive deal to host at 3 clubs next weekend - all under the same ownership - and our sources say they're preparing for the worst ... as in, possible gang violence. We're told the clubs - Murano, Penthouse and Ace of Diamonds - are tripling the number of armed security guards they'd normally hire. They've also put off-duty cops on the payroll, who'll be in uniform at the clubs. (TMZ)
This week, reports surfaced about Cardi catching heat and gang threats over a Crip-related Instagram post.
On Monday, Cardi put up a shot of herself rocking a blue fur coat in Minneapolis. Her caption said, "I hate wearing Flue but this coat was too poppin." It's that word "Flue" that has her in serious hot water - it's a way to knock Crips favorite color, blue, without using the actual word. Cardi's publicly stated she is a Blood, so the post - which has more than a million likes - pissed off the rival Crips, who not only left angry comments ... some flat-out threatened her. The rapper's scheduled to come to L.A. for NBA All-Star festivities in about 10 days ... and her new enemies know it. One comment said, "@iamcardib this will not be accepted #DONTCOMETOLA." (TMZ)
Subsequently, Cardi has edited the pic to make it captionless and banned commenting.
A few days ago, the Bronx native hinted at possibly hitting the road for a tour with pop star Bruno Mars.
Mhhhhhhmmm🤔🤔🤔That sounds like a great idea @brunomars ?
