Rapper Cardi B has won a USD$1.25 million defamation lawsuit against YouTube star LaTasha Kebe (Tasha K) over defamatory gossip accusations.
A Georgia jury awarded Cardi $1.25 million in damages after two weeks of deliberations. The jury also convicted Kebe of invasion of privacy through portrayal of a false light and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
The WAP rapper took Kebe to court in 2019 over dozens of videos featuring allegations, including that the rapper “f**ked herself with beer bottles” on stage when she was working as a stripper.
She also claimed that Cardi was addicted to hard drugs, was cheating on her husband Offset and that she prostituted herself.
In her testimony, Cardi said she felt ‘extremely suicidal’ over Kebe’s claims.
“I felt defeated and depressed and I didn’t want to sleep with my husband,” said Cardi. “Only an evil person could do that sh*t.”
She added that she also suffered from fatigue, weight loss, migraines and anxiety due to the fake news.
Cardi added cyber bullying to her ordeal saying she couldn’t get online anymore as Kebe’s million-plus followers harassed her over pictures of her kissing daughter Kulture on the lips and called her ‘Herpes B.’
