The Hip-Hop starlet Cardi B has been forced to turn the heat up on a security front this week after she made potential enemies out of the infamous Crips gang.
Startling news below…
Three days ago the performer posted this snap on Instagram and used the word “Flue” to describe her “blue” coat.
The problem with this? It was done to ruffle the feathers of the Crips gang whose official colour is blue. For this reason members of rival gang the Bloods refuse to say the word “blue”, opting to replace the letter b with other letters.
Enraged by the slight, members of the Crips took to Instagram to threaten the superstar. Afraid, she removed the caption and has been forced to hire extra security.
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.
Our sources say club management held an emergency meeting Wednesday to discuss how to handle the crisis. Canceling was never an option — we’re told Cardi’s getting around $250k for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday night gigs, and her team hasn’t made a peep about pulling out.
