*Things got violent in Cardi B’s camp Monday night following the Met Gala.
According to multiple reports, members of the rapper’s security team reportedly put hands on a persistent fan after he got too close while seeking an autograph.

Cops said the man repeatedly asked the Bronx-born rapper for her John Hancock even though she kept telling him no. “Oh c’mon, don’t be like that mama. I just asked for an autograph. I’m an autograph hound,” the man says in a video of the beatdown obtained by TMZ. Cardi B’s crew intervened – and allegedly pushed the victim to the ground and punched him, cops said. One of the men stomped on the victim — as seen in the video — before fleeing with two other men westbound on E. 77th Street.

TMZ also has footage of the victim being taken by ambulance to New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell, where he was treated for neck and back pain.
The victim is said to be in stable condition.
So far, no one has been arrested and police are looking to question three men about the turn of events.
