  • The fan who says she was struck by Cardi B’s mic told police someone else through a drink at the rapper.

  • Social media videos show Cardi B throwing the mic after a drink was thrown on her while on stage.

  • The woman who says she was struck by the mic filed a police report accusing Cardi B of battery.

The concertgoer who says she was hit by a microphone Cardi B hurled into a crowd moments after she was doused by a drink while on stage told police that she was not even the person who tossed the liquid at the “WAP” rapper.

Videos that have circulated on social media of the incident show an audience member tossing a drink at Cardi B while the Grammy-winner was performing outdoors at Las Vegas’ Drai’s Beachclub & Nightclub last Saturday.

A visibly irritated Cardi B responded by chucking her microphone in that person’s direction, the videos show.

The 26-year-old fan who said Cardi B struck her with the microphone reported a “battery” to authorities a day after the incident, Las Vegas police said.

The fan told police that a woman, who she described as in her late 20s with reddish-colored hair, threw a drink at Cardi B, according to a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department report obtained by Insider.

 

“As a result of the drink being thrown at Cardi B, Cardi B threw the microphone that she had in her hands at the crowd in the direction of the drink,” and the woman who reported the incident told police she was struck in her right shoulder, the report says.

The woman told authorities that she was “experiencing pain because of this incident” and that she planned to get medical attention when she got home, according to the police report, which lists Cardi B as the sole suspect.

She added that she had been recording on her cell phone at the time and that the recording captured the incident.

The fan also told police that the “crowd was very large during this incident” and that she was not able to complete a report with security or notify police at the time.

Reps for Cardi B did not immediately return Insider’s request for comment on Thursday.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department told Insider earlier this week that the incident had been “documented on a police report and no arrest or citations have been issued.”

Insider on Thursday asked the police department whether there are any updates in the case, but the department did not immediately respond.
