A judge was not impressed with Cardi B’s celebrity status in court and has ordered the private testimony she gave in a $5 million battle to be revealed to the public.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a federal judge has ordered the transcript of a deposition Cardi gave in the case to be filed un-redacted.
Cardi is battling a man named Kevin Michael Brophy Jr., who accused her of using his photo on her mixtape cover without permission.
Brophy Jr. recently asked a judge to file certain documents under seal in the case to oppose Cardi’s attempt to get his lawsuit thrown out. The documents he asked to be sealed included Cardi’s deposition transcript, which he said the singer feared could be considered “'sensational and gossip-worthy' and potentially embarrassing to Cardi B as a celebrity” if made public.
