Cardi B has revealed she lost out on a multi-million dollar deal with Call of Duty due to 'stupid decisions' which landed her in court.

We've all made bad decisions before, but most of the time they just leave us with feelings of embarrassment over what you did the night before, or regrets that you didn't behave exactly how you imagine you could have while lying in bed and reliving the events at 3am.

These kinds of decisions could leave your bank balance looking a bit worse for wear, especially if you designated yourself the shot-buyer for the night, but chances are you won't be out millions of dollars. Unless you're Cardi B.

The rapper took to Twitter on Tuesday (27 September) to declare that her 'stupid decisions from the past' had caused her to lose out on money.

"I had a multi-million dollar Call of Duty deal on the table that I couldn’t take because of court," she explained.

Cardi previously teased a partnership with the gaming brand in July, when she shared a post of herself wearing a skull necklace to promote her single, 'Hot Sh*t'.

Microsoft’s Activision reportedly appeared to confirm the collaboration by sharing photos of Cardi wearing the same necklace in reference to one of the Call of Duty operators, Ghost.

News of the deal then went quiet, but in the meantime Cardi appeared in court on charges of reckless endangerment and assault stemming from an incident at a strip club in August 2018.

The rapper pleaded guilty to two charges of assault as part of a plea deal, which resulted in her being sentenced to 15 days of community service.

She made further reference to 'bad decisions in [her] past' in a statement following the sentencing, explaining that 'part of growing up and maturing is being accountable for your actions'.

"As a mother, it’s a practice that I am trying to instil in my children, but the example starts with me. I’ve made some bad decisions in my past that I am not afraid to face and own up to," she said at the time.

When pressed about the breakdown of the deal by a fan, Cardi responded to say she 'wasn't able' to do a photoshoot for Call of Duty on time due to her appearance in court.

She also urged people to take consequences into account when it comes to making choices, saying: "Guys think twice about those quick decisions! Lesson learned."

Call of Duty is known for collaborating with rappers, having previously worked with Ice Cube, Eminem and Snoop Dogg.
