Cardi B's security team allegedly attacked an overzealous fan in the early hours of Tuesday morning, viciously punching and kicking him outside NYC's Met Gala ... TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us the fan was trying to get an autograph from Cardi shortly after 2 AM as she left a post-Gala event at the Mark Hotel. In this video TMZ obtained, you can see Cardi tells the fan no ... but he persists, saying, "I'm an autograph hound." The next thing you see is a bunch of guys stomping someone on the ground.
The autograph seeker told cops, 3 security guards shoved him to the ground, and started the beatdown. We got video of the victim being transported, around 2:30 AM, by ambulance to a hospital where he was treated for neck and back pain.
Cardi was attending the Met Gala with her fiancé Offset, and the rest of Migos. They had left the scene by the time cops and paramedics arrived. At least one of the attackers in the video had been seen with Migos earlier in the evening.
NYPD is investigating. We have a call in to Cardi's team.
Khloe Kardashian's family is not happy she's getting back with Tristan Thompson -- and that's a major understatement -- but they're not going to lobby her to kick his ass to the curb.
TMZ broke the story ... Khloe was spotted with TT at a Cleveland restaurant Friday having lunch with friends and then showed up at the Cavaliers' game Saturday to support her baby daddy.
Our Kardashian sources say Khloe's family is outraged he humiliated and betrayed her right before she gave birth to their daughter. We're told they WISH she'd remain civil with him for the sake of their daughter, but move on. That said, they have enormous respect for Khloe and think she's capable of making decisions for herself.
We're told the family is somewhat surprised by the turn of events, because not long ago it looked like she was done with Tristan ... and the family was down with that decision. She was staying in Cleveland because Tristan was on the road and the baby wasn't able to fly.
And this is interesting ... we're told the family privately feels they may never forgive Tristan, but they're not going to attempt to torpedo the relationship.
Thanksgiving should be interesting.
