Star Brim Facing RICO Charges
Star Brim, podcast host and friend of Cardi B, is facing RICO charges. Brim, whose real name is Yonette Respass, was reportedly one of 18 members of the 59 Brims Blood gang members indicted in the Southern District of New York this week. Brim is being accused of being the highest-ranking female member in the gang and is charged for slashing a person and participating in a racketeering conspiracy. She was recently released from jail where she served time for fraud.
She was not arrested this week since she is pregnant and due very soon. Despite admitting that she’s been hanging out with Blood members since she was 16 years old, Cardi B has said she never joined the gang. She told GQ she feared for her future knowing that gang life was a lifelong commitment. She said becoming a stripper at 19 helped her move away from a life of crime.
