Lawyer trying to serve fan’s lawsuit says he can’t find Cardi B

You can hail the queen of rap — but you apparently can’t serve her.

“Diligent attempts to locate Cardi B … have so far been fruitless and the parties’ dedication to avoiding responsibility for their actions has made it impossible for plaintiffs to serve them within the 120-day limit,” attorney Daniel Szalkiewicz claimed. “New York courts have broad discretion to grant an extension of time to serve the summons … here plaintiff can establish `good cause’ for an extension of time and that doing so is in the `interest of justice.’”

Szalkiewicz’s client, autograph seeker Giovanni Arnold, said he was outside the Mark Hotel on the Upper East Side on May 8 when hired muscle of Cardi B and her husband, fellow rapper Offset, beat him up.

Szalkiewicz filed Arnold’s lawsuit on May 16, opening a 120-day window to serve papers on Cardi B and Offset. The plaintiffs said they served papers to Offset while he was in his SUV on Aug. 12 — though he tossed them out the window as soon as he got them.

But Cardi B, who suffered a nasty shiner from a Fashion Week brawl with her rival rap queen, Nicki Minaj, this past Friday, has proven more elusive, according to Szalkiewicz.
