Grammy-winning rapper Cardi B has pulled out of a Paramount Players film, nearly a week before filming began. Following the rapper’s exit, the studio completely halted production on the “Assisted Living” movie, Deadline reported. The Hollywood studio hopes “to pick up the pieces later this year”.
Cardi opted out of the film due to overstretching. The cast and crew members were reportedly informed of the sudden change in plans. The 29-year-old rapper was set to star in ‘Assisted Living,’ in which her character was wrongly accused of committing a crime and hid in her grandmother’s nursing home.
“Assisted Living” was to be Cardi’s third film. The rapper first appeared in the 2019 movie ‘Hustlers’ alongside stars like Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Keke Palmer, Lizzo as one of many strippers working at a strip club from New York. Last year, Cardi made her debut in the “Fast and Furious” franchise as Leysa in “F9.”
Meanwhile, on a personal level, the rapper announced her second pregnancy with husband and rapper Offset in June at the BET Awards and the couple welcomed their baby boy in September. (ANI)
