Cardi B has been slapped with a $1 million lawsuit by a blogger who claims the rapper lied about her on social media, which caused her to receive threats from her rabid fans.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, celebrity blogger Latasha K has filed suit against Cardi in federal court. The suit comes two months after Cardi sued her for defamation.
Latasha says she runs a YouTube channel with 500k followers and runs various other successful social media accounts for her celebrity blog.
She admits publishing a video with another blogger in which they talked about Cardi B. She claims Cardi then reached out to her privately and asked her to remove the video.
Latasha claims she offered to do an interview with Cardi to discuss her issues but Cardi declined.
In response, she claims, “Cardi B began to publicly defame Ms. Kebe, referring to her as ‘this blogger lady, by stating that Ms. Kebe makes up fake stories; harasses all of Cardi B’s friends; constantly stalks Cardi B; falsely claims that she has legitimate sources giving her information about Cardi B; uses Cardi B’s name for ‘click bait’; and many other false accusations.”
Latasha K says she has received threats — including “gang-related threats” — as a result and has had to permanently relocate her residence. She also claims to be losing money from her business by losing subscribers and advertisers.
She says she is pregnant and suffering severe emotional distress, anxiety, panic, stress, insomnia, humiliation, and depression.
Latasha is seeking in excess of a million in damages.
Earlier this year, Cardi B sued bloggers Latasha K and Starmine Ebony Jones. She accused them of defaming by calling her a prostitute and claiming she had herpes.
Cardi took issue with various things Latasha K posted about her, including talking about her baby Kulture. Starmine made accusations that Cardi did drugs including molly and cocaine.
She sued them for defamation and sought unspecified damages and also wanted an injunction ordering the videos to be taken offline.
