Cardi B’s entourage seen on video attacking autograph-seeker on Upper East Side (WARNING: GRAPHIC)


NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Cardi B’s entourage went nuts on an autograph-seeker early outside a five-star hotel on the Upper East Side, officials said.
Cardi B's entourage went nuts on an autograph-seeker Tuesday outside a five-star hotel on the Upper East Side, pounding him for trying to get too close to the rapper, officials said.
Cops said the 33-year-old victim, Giovanni Arnold, approached the 25-year-old Bronx star, the rapper Offset and their group at about 2 a.m. at the Mark Hotel on E. 77th St. near Madison Ave., following the Met Gala.
Police initially said members of her entourage thought Arnold was getting too close and gave him a thumping. Medics took him to New York Presbyterian Hospital in stable condition.

But a video posted to TMZ shows Arnold standing across the street from the rappers' SUV, complaining that they snubbed him.
"I just asked for an autograph, damn," Arnold says in the video.

"Please beat me up, please brother, you better invest you money, bro, do something with your money instead of buying jewelry. You gonna go broke one day, you heard? It's not going to last forever."

They repeatedly punch him, knocking him to the ground, and then stomp on him before running back into the SUV. The vehicle then speeds off.

Arnold hired lawyer Daniel Szalkiewicz to represent him in a likely lawsuit.
"This wasn't an accident and it wasn't self-defense," Szalkiewicz said. "It was an unjustified ambush by rabid members of Offset and Cardi B's entourage. Lucky for our client, police were there to prevent further injury."
Szalkiewicz added, "His sole intention for being there that night was to get an autograph."
The incident wasn't mentioned on the Met Gala Twitter account.
Cardi's debut single "Bodak Yellow" hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
