Cardi B and Offset Accused of Ducking Alleged Assault Victim’s Lawsuit

The guy who is suing Cardi B and Offset over an alleged assault earlier this year claims they are harder to track down than Bigfoot and is asking the court for help so he can move forward with his lawsuit.

As The Blast first reported, a guy named Giovanni Arnold sued the rap couple in July after he claims they orchestrated his beatdown outside of a New York City hotel back in May.

Arnold claimed that on May 5, following the Met Gala in New York, he was attacked by three of the couple’s bodyguards. He claims he ended up having to go to the hospital for his alleged face, neck, back and body injuries and sued seeking unspecified damages.

On September 13, Arnold filed court docs in the case accusing Cardi and Offset of ducking service of the lawsuit.

He explains that after filing the lawsuit, he waited to serve Cardi B due to her being “seven months pregnant at the time of the assault and, out of respect and consideration for her and her baby’s wellbeing, as well as that of her finance, Offset, I chose not to immediately serve” them.

He claims, “Cardi B and Offset, who reside at the same address, go to great lengths to keep their whereabouts a secret. In December 2017, a judge in one of Offset’s child support cases granted his request to keep his e-mail, personal address, and other information confidential.”

Arnold says a lawyer claiming to represent Cardi reached out to his lawyer, but then refused to accept service.

He claims he served Offset in New York last month in front of the London NYC but “unhappy he was served, he threw the documents out the window of his SUV and drove away.” The Blast actually obtained video of the incident, which you can watch below.

The documents go on to claim, “Similar attempts at locating and serving Cardi B on the street or hotels have been undertaken but difficult because of security and her erratic schedule (for example, the media reports Ms. Almanzar often comes back to her hotel rooms into the late hours of the night), we have been unable to personally deliver the papers to her.”

Arnold accuses the couple of “avoiding responsibility for their actions” and is pleading with the court for an extension to serve them with the legal papers, so the case can move forward.

A judge has yet to rule.
