Cardi B is asking a judge to throw out the lawsuit accusing the singer of ripping off art for her mixtape cover, accusing the man suing her of only trying to shake her down.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Cardi B is once again asking a judge to throw out the $5 million-dollar lawsuit filed by a man named Kevin Michael Brophy, Jr.
Brophy accuses Cardi of using a photo of his distinct back tattoo and using it for her mixtape album cover, without paying him or getting permission.
In newly filed court docs, Cardi calls the lawsuits “nothing but a transparent attempt at a celebrity shakedown.”
Her response states, “The allegations of the Complaint are so far-fetched and lacking in substance, on their face, that they defy credulity. After having more than a year to conduct jurisdictional discovery, Plaintiff has come up with nothing of substance to put meat on the bare, brittle bones of his vague, conclusory allegations. His claims, couched in sensationalistic language, are inherently, and obviously, implausible.”
