Cardi B has dropped out of the comedy “Assisted Living” just one week before filming was to begin.
Production company Paramount Players has suspended the project. The other cast and crew were told that the movie was temporarily scrapped.
Insiders say the reason for the “Bodak Yellow” singer’s departure was due to overextension.
In the comedy, Cardi was set to play a criminal who must go on the run after she’s accused of a crime. She tries to prove her innocence and hides out at her grandmother’s retirement home. In another comedic twist, she sports some old-lady prosthetics and makeup to help her fit in.
According to Deadline, legal action may be taken against Cardi due to her late exit.
