On the music side of things, Cardi recently defeated Tasha K, real name Latasha Kebe, in her defamation trial back in January. Earlier this month, she filed a permanent injunction against the vlogger, with Billboard reporting the Bronx rapper requested Tasha K be banned from posting “harmful and disgusting lies.” Cardi and her lawyers argued that the court’s defamation verdict proved to be “inadequate” and further action needed to be taken. 

“Plaintiff filed this action because defendants refused to stop targeting her with harmful and disgusting lies,” Cardi’s legal team said in court docs. “Damages alone are inadequate to address the constant ongoing threat of defendants repeating the defamatory statements [and] defendants have explicitly said that they will continue publishing the defamatory statements unless an injunction is issued.”
