CARDI B WINS $1.25M LAWSUIT

The court found YouTuber Tasha K liable for defamation, invasion of privacy and causing emotional distress to rapper Cardi B, Sky News reports.

The social media star was ruled to have published “slanderous and defamatory statements” about the rapper. Cardi testified in court she felt “extremely suicidal” over Tasha K’s claims, adding: “I felt defeated and depressed and I didn’t want to sleep with my husband.”

Tasha K, real name LaTasha Kebe, was ordered to pay $1.25 million in damages after a Georgia jury deliberated for two weeks.

Billboard reports Kebe’s payout could end up being even higher. Proceedings have started over whether Kebe would have to pay additional punitive damages or reimburse Cardi B’s legal expenses.

WHAT DID TASHA K SAY ABOUT CARDI B?

Tasha K was found liable for defamation, but what exactly did the YouTuber say about Cardi B?

The ‘Up’ rapper originally filed a lawsuit against Kebe in November 2019 following claims the YouTube star had made against Cardi.

Tasha K made false allegations in videos that Cardi B had worked as a prostitute, contracted STIs, used illegal substances, and cheated on her husband. In 2018, the YouTuber claimed Cardi performed on “stripper stages”.

Vulture reported Kebe admitted in court she had knowingly published lies about the rapper.

TASHA K TWEETS ABOUT THE VERDICT

Following the jury’s verdict, Tasha K took to Twitter:

The YouTuber wrote: “My husband, attorneys and I fought really hard. I want to thank them for their long hours and sleepless nights. Winos, it’s only up from here. See y’all in a few days. Back to work.”

Kebe later added: “I forgot to thank all of the viewers for all of your support. In this business, this is part of the protocol. Everyone in my seat has been through this, and this ain’t the last. This comes with the territory. See y’all Friday! It’s long overdue!”

An attorney representing Cardi B refused to comment but the rapper did post a picture appearing to show her late grandmother, Sky News reports.

It included the caption: “My queen, thank you for hearing my prayers. Only you know those nights I cried to you feeling hopeless and tired, even when it seems like I have the world on my hands.”
