Police are looking to speak to Cardi B and her fiance Offset’s security about an alleged attack that occurred after the Met Gala on Monday night, it’s been reported.
TMZ has video footage of an over-eager fan asking Cardi B for an autograph after the star-studded event. However, when the singer refused, her security are then said to have shoved the man in question to the ground, with one male returning to stomp on him.
According to the website, the autograph seeker, thought to be Giovanni Arnold, is said to have told the NYPD that he was set on by three security guards. He also told The Blast that Offset did not like the way he’d approached his fiancee and told his people to “go after” him.
The incident is reportedly being investigated for misdemeanor assault.
The site added that authorities were only looking to speak with the three men allegedly involved in the fight and mentioned they were not interested in speaking with Cardi B or Offset.
Cardi is said to have taken to Twitter after the incident took place to post, according to Just Jared: “If you check my tag pics I take a lot of pics with fans. Some people are not fans & sometimes I don’t want no pics and I simply don’t want people too close cause of [my pregnancy]. I don’t know what are people’s intentions sooo I be careful. Why can’t people respect that?”
The tweet has since been deleted.
Her post came after TMZ also shared video footage of the victim being transported to hospital, where he was treated for neck and back pain, at around 2:30 a.m.
Cardi had been attending Monday’s event with her other half, with whom she’s expecting her first child, and the rest of his band Migos.
The stars are said to have already left the scene by the time the police and paramedics arrived.
ET Canada has contacted Cardi B and Offset’s reps for further comments.
