*After Cardi B ran afoul of the Crips with her Instagram post and was warned not to step foot in LA for the upcoming NBA All-Star Weekend, venues that have booked her are reportedly taking the gang threats seriously.

According to TMZ, Cardi has an exclusive deal to host at three clubs next weekend, all under the same ownership, and sources say they’re preparing for possible gang violence.

As previously reported, the rapper posted a pic of herself in a blue fur coat with the caption, “I hate wearing Flue.”

From TMZ:

We’re told the clubs — Murano, Penthouse and Ace of Diamonds — are tripling the number of armed security guards they’d normally hire. They’ve also put off-duty cops on the payroll, who’ll be in uniform at the clubs.

Our sources say club management held an emergency meeting Wednesday to discuss how to handle the crisis. Canceling was never an option — we’re told Cardi’s getting around $250k for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday night gigs, and her team hasn’t made a peep about pulling out.

Still, we’re told club owners are taking the threats seriously, and want to make sure Cardi and all club patrons are safe.
