Cardi B has been countersued by Latasha K, a blogger who was sued by the rapper just two months ago for defamation.
Latasha is seeking $1 million in damages, and claiming the Invasion of Privacy rapper lied about her on social media, which allegedly prompted Cardi fans to lodge death threats against her. The celebrity blogger is suing Cardi in federal court, according to documents obtained by The Blast.
The blogger, who runs an account titled unWinewithTashaK, has asserted that Cardi's statements online have negatively affected her business, as she has 500k followers and has allegedly been losing subsribers and advertisers.
Cardi sued Latasha and fellow vlogger Starmarie Ebony Jones in March over widely publicized claims they allegedly made about the rapper and her family. Over the course of 14 months, Latasha allegedly disparaged Cardi in a series of videos, even claiming that her daughter Kulture suffered "intellectual disabilities" because of Cardi's drug use while pregnant.
In classic Cardi fashion, the rapper responded to the remarks on Instagram. "I'm gonna sue you for defamation of character because I let that bitch play and talk shit about me, but when you talk shit about my daughter ..." she said on Instagram Live. "Bitch you a whole fucking weirdo. A bitch that's 40 years old and pregnant too, and then all you can do is talk shit about me, ho. Fuck outta here." In her defamation suit, Cardi sought unspecified damages and an injunction ordering videos to be taken offline.
Latasha has claimed that she gave Cardi the opportunity to discuss the exchange, however she reportedly declined.
In her countersuit, the vlogger's lawyer claimed Cardi made false accusations about her. "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."
She further stated that she has received "gang-related threats" as a result of Cardi's commentary online, and has had to move residences on account of the intimidation. Given the nature of her accusations, she is also claiming emotional distress.
