Cardi B was just issued a stern warning from the judge in her strip club beat down case … show up to court or face getting arrested.
Cardi’s legal team was in court Monday — without the rapper — for a hearing about the August incident.
According to TMZ, prosecutors expressed their frustration that Cardi herself was a no-show considering they’ve already given her a 6-week extension on the case … so they asked the judge to issue a bench warrant.
The judge denied the immediate request, but issued a serious warning — Cardi must appear in court Friday morning — or there will most likely be a warrant issued.
Cardi’s defense team also revealed in court they’ve been having a tough time getting in touch with her directly — instead only communicating through Cardi’s management team — and only found out Thursday Cardi had a prior commitment that would prevent her from attending Monday’s hearing.
As was reported … Cardi is accused of sending her people to rough up 2 strip club bartenders — Jade and Baddie Gi — and badly injuring both. Jade said … prior to the attack, Cardi had threatened her for months, accusing the two of sleeping with her husband, Offset.
