Five-time Grammy nominee Cardi B made a quick court appearance in Queens Criminal Court on Thursday, confirming that she and her estranged husband are getting back together.

The superstar rapper, whose real name is Belcalis Almánzar, arrived to court around 10:10 a.m. and braved frigid temperatures by wearing head-to-ankle fur and black, spiked boots with red soles.

Almánzar, 26, was in-and-out of court for an update related to the misdemeanor assault charges against her. The charges stem from a College Point strip club brawl between Cardi’s crew and two bartenders, whom she accused of having sex with her husband Offset.

Assistant District Attorney Ryan Nicolosi turned over a USB drive with case documents to Almánzar's attorney Jeff Kern and renewed the orders of protection in favor of the two assault victims.

Prior to Almánzar's court appearance, she reunited with Offset, a member of the hip hop trio Migos.

“We're working things out, baby,” Almánzar said as she carefully placed her sunglasses on her face and waved to fans in the Kew Gardens courthouse hallway.

The judge ordered Almánzar and her two co-defendants back to court on April 4. If convicted, they all face up to a year on Rikers Island.
