Giovanni Arnold tells The Blast he approached Offset and Cardi B for a signature after the Met Gala while they waited in a car outside the Mark Hotel. He says Offset did not like the way he approached Cardi, and allegedly told his three entourage members, also in the car, to “go after” the man. Giovanni claims he was jumped by the three men who shoved him to the ground and viciously beat him before making a quick getaway.
NYPD confirms they responded to the hotel at 2:12 AM for the alleged assault, but officers say there were no visible signs of trauma. The victim was taken to NY Presbyterian Hospital and the incident is being investigated for misdemeanor assault.
We’re told authorities are only looking to speak with the three men allegedly involved in the fight, and at this time are not interested in speaking with Cardi B or Offset.
The new drama is the latest in a string of controversy for the Migos, who recently got into a brawl in Las Vegas that landed Quavo with battery charges, and also a large drug bust for entourage members after a concert in North Carolina.
