Star Brim, the best friend of Bronx rapper Cardi B has been charged with racketeering and slashing a person, court documents released Tuesday say.

According to reports, Star Brim is allegedly the highest-ranking female member of the Bloods subset 59 Brims in New York City, the documents revealed.

Brim — real name Yonette Respass — was one of 18 defendants named in an indictment of gang members in the Southern District of New York Tuesday. She was charged with slashing a person and participating in a racketeering conspiracy.

Brim has been allowed to delay her arrest until the baby is born. Prosecutors say Brim is the highest-ranking female member of the 59 Brims, also known as “Godmother.” Female members of the gang who do not report to other gang officials are required to report to her. Previous “Godmother” Jerlaine Little, aka “Noni,” was also arrested.
