Tasha K and Cardi B lawsuit
Grammy award-winning rapper Cardi B secured a legal victory in January 2022 in her defamation lawsuit against Tasha K. The court ruled in Cardi B’s favor, finding Tasha K liable for defamation, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. As a result, Cardi B was granted a substantial seven-figure sum in damages, and Tasha K had to remove all the videos related to the famous “Bodak Yellow” singer.
Cardi B, whose birth name is Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, found herself the target of an alleged malicious campaign orchestrated by Tasha K. This legal battle stemmed from a 2019 lawsuit filed in the US District Court Northern District of Georgia, which alleged that Tasha K had intentionally aimed to tarnish Cardi B’s reputation with her fan base.
The lawsuit detailed Tasha K’s actions, which included the publication of numerous false and defamatory statements about Cardi B, ranging from baseless claims of prostitution and cocaine use, to unfounded allegations about the rapper having contracted herpes. In one of her videos, Tasha K made allegations saying that, while she worked as a stripper, Cardi B ‘fu***ed herself with beer bottles’, which caused massive public attention. Cardi B said that after Tasha K uploaded her videos, she felt ‘suicidal’, adding that ‘only an evil person could do that sh**’.
Eventually, Tasha K admitted to publishing the lies, but reportedly tried to retract that statement. In March 2023, she wrote an Instagram post, which among other things said that she apologized to Cardi B (and her team).
A year following Cardi B’s triumphant victory in a defamation case, following which she was awarded nearly $4 million in damages due to false claims made by YouTube host Tasha K regarding drug use, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and prostitution, a federal judge has now delivered a crucial ruling, stipulating that the gossip blogger, Tasha K, cannot employ Chapter 11 bankruptcy as a means to evade the majority of the judgment.
Tasha K, who initiated the bankruptcy process in May 2023, asserting ownership of less than $60,000 in assets, has been denied the opportunity to ‘discharge’ the $3.4 million debt owed to Cardi B through the Chapter 11 proceedings. This signifies that she will remain financially responsible for the outstanding sum, even after she completes the bankruptcy process.
Recently, Tasha K shared with her followers that she’d found a job so that she could pay her debt, but adding that there are some GoFundMe accounts made in her name, which are false.
