Cardi B's Security Allegedly Attacked 'Autograph Hound' After Met Gala

Three body guards reportedly punched and kicked a man asking for an autograph.

Cardi B’s bodyguards allegedly assaulted a super excited fan on Monday night after the Met Gala in New York City. In video obtained by TMZ, her security team is seen punching and kicking a man on the ground.

The fan was reportedly trying to get an autograph from Cardi around 2 a.m. after she left a post–Met Gala party at the Mark Hotel. She told the fan no, but he persevered, claiming, “I’m an autograph hound.” Shortly after, her accompanying security team attacked the man. In a new video obtained by TMZ, you can see how it all unfolded:

The unidentified man told the cops three bodyguards were behind the assault. After the attack, the man was transported to a nearby hospital via an ambulance at around 2:30 a.m. where he was treated for neck and back pain.

The Snapchat video of the assault says the security guards belonged to Migos, whom Cardi attended the Met Gala with alongside fiancé Offset. The artists and security were gone by the time police and paramedics arrived.

NYPD is currently investigating the incident. 


Cardi B arrived to the Met Gala on Monday night with designer Jeremy Scott wearing a renaissance-style gown and headdress. Migos sported Versace suits to coincide with the theme "Heavenly Bodies."
