On Monday (March 25), Cardi hopped on Instagram Live to talk about a harrowing experience she allegedly faced at the hands of the Los Angeles Police Department on Sunday (March 24) when police approached her car.

"They thought I was trafficking fentanyl," she said in the video below. "And they thought I had a gun in my car. So they stopped me and everything. All the helicopters in L.A., they was outside. Yo, I was freaking out. They had me outside for like three hours. They had me getting butt-naked outside. Yo, like, s**t was crazy. It was deada** a movie and whatever, but you already know. I'm ’bout to sue the LAPD. I told them like, 'Yo, I'm Cardi B. Like do I look like I gotta sell some s**t? Like why would I do that? I would never pull no s**t like that.'"

She continued, "They didn't believe me. It was some White cops and they ain't know who I was. It was really tough on me and everything. They said somebody gave them a clue. I really feel like it was one of my opps and s**t, like they really trying to ruin my life type s**t. Like y'all don't even f**king know. I been going through a lot lately."
