Cardi B loses 'multi-million' deal with 'Call of Duty' over assault lawsuit

October 01, 2022

Earlier this year, Cardi B announced an exciting collaboration with the 'Call of Duty' video game series, wearing a necklace featuring the game's character Ghost during the music video for her single 'Hot Shit' featuring Kanye West and Lil Durk.

In fact, Activision, the company from which "Call of Duty" is released, posted on its social media pages the song, which refers to the character of Ghost in its lyrics.

When the music video for "Hot Shit" was released in July, fans speculated that Cardi B would be collaborating with "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II," which is slated for an October 22 release.

In the end it turns out they were right. Cardi B has revealed she missed out on one of the biggest video game releases of the year and warned her fans not to make "stupid decisions" in life that ruin potential opportunities.

“Because of my stupid decisions from the past I lost money today. "I was offered a multi-million dollar deal for 'Call of Duty', which I couldn't accept because of the court," Cardi B wrote on Twitter.

“Guys, think twice about those snap decisions! The crime became a lesson," he admitted.

Earlier this month, Cardi B pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree assault and misdemeanor reckless endangerment. The 29-year-old admitted to paying a friend $5,000 to beat up two bartenders at a strip club in Queens.

Cardi B was sentenced to 15 days of community service and a three-year restraining order.

When a Twitter user suggested she renegotiate her "Call of Duty" deal, the rapper revealed it's too late. "I couldn't do it because of court two weeks ago, I couldn't do the shoot on time," he explained.

Following her sentencing, Cardi B said she's learning to take responsibility for her actions and admitted she made "some bad decisions in the past that she's not afraid to face and admit."
