Cardi B Threatens to Sue LAPD, Claims Police Accused Her of Drug Trafficking

Cardi B has opened up about what she says was a frightening interaction with the Los Angeles Police Department she had over the weekend.


The Bronx native recounted details about the LAPD incident during an Instagram Live session early Monday (March 25), during which she alleged that officers accused her of trafficking fentanyl and having a weapon in her car.

“You don’t even know what happened to me yesterday, like, y’all don’t even know,” Cardi said. “I got stopped by the cops and everything. I got stopped by the cops yesterday. You gon’ see, it’s gonna hit TMZ real soon. They thought I was trafficking. Yeah, they thought I was trafficking fentanyl. And they thought I had a gun in my car.”

The Grammy-winning rapper went on to allege that they had her outside for “three hours,” and said she’s planning to sue the LAPD.

“They had me getting butt naked outside,” she continued. “S–t was crazy. It was deada– a movie and whatever. But you already know I’m ’bout to sue the LAPD. They got me f–ked up for doing it.”


Cardi believes one of her “opps” put the police up to this, as she claimed the officers admitted they received a tip about her.

“It was, like, some white cops or something. They didn’t know who I was so they was really tough on me and everything. They said that somebody gave them a clue,” the 31-year-old alleged. “I already feel like it was one of my opps and s–t. They really trying to ruin my life.”

When reached for comment, the LAPD denied Cardi B’s allegations and told Billboard, “We don’t have any record of any traffic stop.”

Billboard has reached out to Cardi B’s reps for comment.

On the music side, Cardi is staying busy heading into her anticipated sophomore album. The “WAP” rapper’s latest single earned her another top 10 entry on the Billboard Hot 100 — the 12th of her career — with “Enough (Miami)” debuting at No. 9 this week.
