Cardi B's alleged attack on two sisters who were bartenders at Angels Strip Club in Queens, New York in 2018 was orchestrated by her bestie Star Brim, feds say.

On Tuesday, federal prosecutors charged Brim with racketeering and illegal gang activities for allegedly heading a notorious NY street gang.

Feds reportedly gave Brim, who is 9 months pregnant, one month to turn herself in after giving birth. The baby is due this month (Feb).

The first-time mom proudly posed with her baby daddy, an alleged Crips gang member, at her baby shower last month.

Brim captioned an Instagram image: "THE PARENTS... HAVEN'T PARTIED FOR 8 MONTHS HAD TO TURN UP".
 

Also attending the baby shower was her bestie Cardi B, actress LaLa Anthony, and rapper Pop Smoke, who was killed in a home invasion early Wednesday in California.

According to the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, the rapper's best friend ordered the 5-9 Brims gang members to target two sisters and deliver a savage beatdown without killing them.

After a gang member sent her video of the first assault on the sisters, Brim, whose real name is Yonette Respass, didn't think the first assault was "vicious" enough, court documents claim. So she ordered gang members to attack the women again.

Prosecutors unsealed federal indictments against the "Bodak Yellow" rapper's alleged "muscle" Jeffrey Bush, 35, and her close pal Brim, 28, on racketeering conspiracy charges for their alleged involvement with the 5-9 Brims, a chapter of the notorious Bloods gang.

Brim, who is allegedly the gangs' 'godmother' or highest-ranking female member, apparently ordered a beatdown on the sisters for showing disrespect to Cardi, prosecutors allege.

One of the sisters was accused of sleeping with Cardi's promiscuous husband, rapper Offset of Migos. Brim (left) and Cardi are pictured at a Queens, NY courthouse, where Cardi faces trial on assault charges.

"I want hands put on them. I don't even want no talking," Brim ordered the gang, according to court papers.

Bush and three other female gang members then arrived at the Angels strip club on August 15, where they grabbed one of the bartenders by the hair, dragged her across the bar and punched her in the head.

Bush recorded the entire incident on his cell phone and sent the footage to Brim, who was doing time in prison for assault.

"Dissatisfied with the first attack, defendant Respass continued communicating with other enterprise members about the assault, and discussed whether the assault was vicious enough or if 5-9 Brims needed to attack the victim again," a detention memo alleges.
 

Bush and Cardi B, real name Belcalis Almanzar, still have assault charges pending against them in Queens Supreme Court for the second incident. Cardi, who was present but did not participate in the assaults, has pleaded not guilty on the assault charges.

Cardi B's bestie Star Brim is heading back to prison. She was indicted by the federal government on RICO charges for being "Godmother" of the 59 Brims street gang.

Lead prosecutor Geoffrey S. Berman, who also collared rapper Tekashi69 and the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, set his sights on Brim before she was released from prison last year.

Brim, who was born Yonette Respass, was named in the federal indictment announced by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York on Tuesday.

Prosecutors charged Brim and 10 other alleged 59 Brims Gang members on RICO counts and conspiracy to commit assault in-aid-of racketeering, in addition to other violence and illegal activity between January 2012 and December 2019.

The feds say Brim orchestrated the attack against two female bartenders at a NY strip club because they "disrespected" Cardi B.

Brim, who was behind bars at the time, allegedly ordered her subordinates to attack the women without murdering them. According to the indictment, Brim ordered her underlings to touch the 2 women with extreme violence.

"I want hands put on them," Brim reportedly told gang members. "I don't even want no talking."

In August, members of the 59 Brims gang, who are affiliated with the Bloods, arrived at the Angels strip club to confront the two sisters who worked as bartenders there. One of the sisters was accused of sleeping with Cardi's husband, rapper Offset of Migos.

Though Cardi did not physically participate in the attack, police say she watched it go down, as her crew threw chairs and bottles at the sisters, who sustained serious facial and head injuries.

Surveillance footage from inside the bar shows co-defendant Jeffrey Bush filming the attack on his cell phone.

A woman standing next to Bush ordered a drink from the intended target, who was asked to lean closer. The woman then grabbed the victim by her hair and dragged her over the bar while beating her in the head with a bottle.

Bush filmed the entire assault and sent the footage to Brim in prison. After reviewing the video, Brim decided the violence was not vicious enough, according to the indictment.

The defendants were then ordered to carry out a second assault on the sisters about two weeks later at Angels strip club. Cardi was in the house for the second assault as well.

The sisters were fired by the strip club's management after the two incidents. The women later sued the club's owner.

Cardi was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault and reckless endangerment in the strip club attack in the summer of 2019.

Cardi, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, is seen above arriving at the courthouse with Brim by her side.

Brim's gang is also accused of murdering members of a rival gang, Real Ryte, conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances, and unlawful use of firearms for drug trafficking purposes.

Cardi and Brim were friends before she skyrocketed to hip-hop fame with her summer anthem "Bodak Yellow."

Brim, who is currently pregnant, is negotiating the terms of her surrender. If convicted, she faces up to 50 years in federal prison.
