Cardi B’s best friend Star Brim back in court over racketeering case

With racketeering charges still hovering over her head, Cardi B’s best friend Star Brim has finally caught a break from a judge after being given permission to travel out of New York for business.

According to her legal representatives Brim, real name Yonette Respass, needs to travel to Georgia to do work on a skincare line she is developing as well as a #1 iTunes rated podcast, which she expects to relaunch soon.

“Ms. Respass, who is also known as “Star” is an entrepreneur who is the sole support of herself and her son. She is involved in a number of businesses ventures and is currently represented by Alexandra Rago, the owner of Ambitious Minds, Inc. a talent management company, “ her legal representatives said in their submission.

“She is currently in the process of launching an all-natural skin and hair care line called “Star Quality Skin.” These are natural and organic products with minimal ingredients that will be reasonably priced. The goal is to provide people of color with affordable products that have responsible and sustainable ingredients. The launch of the products is scheduled to take place in Atlanta.”

Earlier this year, the feds charged Willie Evans and Brim — the alleged godfather and godmother of the 59 Brims gang, a murderous drug-trafficking ring that has been around for at least a decade, authorities said.

The gang had been running a criminal enterprise since 2011 that pushed drugs, including crack, heroin and fentanyl, and was connected to bank and wire fraud, as well as murder, according to the indictment.

Her friendship with the WAP rapper is well established, with Cardi writing glowingly about her in a June 2018 post.

“For two and a half years Star been out on bail. She got caught by the Feds and lost a lot of s–t. Never asked nobody for sh-t, got a 9-5 trying to figure things out.

“She started bartending something that was so new to her and it was alil difficult at first since NYC strip clubs give hard times to Brown Skin bartenders and barely hire them! Yeup i said it ????but you know what? she ain’t stop and became great! She was able to save thousand of dollars, pay for good lawyers bought two cars, a Jeep and a pink Porsche pay them off.”

She ended: “Made well over enough for her bid and for when she come home and got a great business plan for when she touches down back in town .Ya maa happy cause she away or like she just got snatch but shorty been prepare for this and turn herself in early cause she just want to get sh-t over with and do her time.

“I mean why wouldn’t she ? after she finish her bid no more probation, can travel everywhere and she can live a normal love life! Dont gottta worry about falling in love knowing in the back of her mind she got to do time .In Soo proud of her i seen her growth and i see how responsible and determined she is/.”
