Cardi B claims she missed out on “multi-million” deal from Call of Duty after court case

The Grammy-winning singer pleaded guilty to charges of assault on September 15th.

Cardi B has lost out on a "multi-million" dollar deal with Activision after pleading guilty to assault charges on September 15th. The Grammy-winning rapper, born Belcalis Almanzar, will avoid trial and jail time after her guilty plea.

She pleaded guilty to a third-degree assault charge and a second-degree reckless endangerment charge. The court sentenced her to 15 days of community service. Almanzar also admitted to offering a friend $5,000 to assist her during the assault.

The court has ordered her to stay away from the victims, identified in court as Jade and Baddie Gi. That order lasts three years.

As a result of the court case, the music artist appears to have lost out on a brand deal with Activision's Call of Duty franchise. Almanzar took to Twitter to reveal that she had the deal with Call of Duty available to her. In doing so, she called out her own "stupid decisions".

"My stupid decisions from the past caused me to miss out on money now," Cardi B said. "I had a multi-million dollar Call of Duty deal on the table that I couldn't take because of court."

She also gave a message to her followers to not fall into the same mistakes that she had: "Guys, think twice about those decisions! Lesson learned."

Activision did not pull the deal because of the court case. Cardi B was unable to attend the shoot for the deal due to being in court on the same dates.

The rapper is no stranger to court cases. In January, she won over $2 million in a defamation settlement. She won a total of over $3 million after Latasha Kebe, better known online as Tasha K, made "degrading and harassing statements" about Almanzar.

Previous Call of Duty references

The Grammy-winner hid references to the franchise in the music video for her song, "Hot Shit". She was seen wearing a necklace featuring the image of Modern Warfare character Ghost. This stunt was to help promote the latest game in the franchise, Modern Warfare 2, launching on October 28th.

Even the official Call of Duty Twitter account was used to help promote the video. They tweeted a screenshot from the video, with the caption: "Ghost so popping, don't gotta be introduced."

The necklace was created by OmarTheJeweler and only one in that exact design will ever be made. It was specifically made for Cardi B.

Other celebrities have been involved with Call of Duty over the last few years. Pete Davison has been involved with shoots alongside YouTube streamer Tim "TimTheTatMan" Betar, also promoting Modern Warfare 2.

Another rapper, Snoop Dogg, has also had deals with the franchise. Snoop even had his own skin added into the game during Call of Duty: Vanguard. Activision released the skin purposefully on April 20, with it costing $19.99.

Call of Duty may give Cardi B the chance to reschedule the shoot. If there were other celebrities or public figures involved in the shoot, it may be too late. Fans of the rapper are already clamouring for her to be given a second chance.
