Cardi B Claims Victory in Libel Case Against YouTuber Tasha K

Cardi B was granted a victory in her defamation lawsuit against YouTuber, Tasha K.

The case was tried in an Atlanta federal courtroom after the “Bodak Yellow” superstar filed a libel lawsuit in 2019 against the Youtuber, whose real name is Latasha Kebe, accusing her of spreading unsubstantiated claims and other falsehoods.

Monday Kebe was found liable on 3 separate claims, and Cardi’s been awarded at least $1 million. According to the judge, any potential punitive damages Kebe might owe the rapper will be determined in a future hearing.

The 2019 lawsuit cited numerous social media posts and more than 38 videos uploaded by Kebe that referenced the rapper, including, “Cardi B “f***** herself with beer bottles on f****** stripper stages.” Another post by Kebe also claimed Cardi contracted herpes, which later turned out to be false after a Los Angeles hospital turned over records of STD tests performed on Cardi. A judge on the case confirmed those records were “not helpful” to Kebe’s defense, which means they likely showed a negative test result.

On the fourth day of the week-plus long trial, the rapper took the stand telling the jury she felt “extremely suicidal” following allegations made by YouTuber Tasha K.

“I felt defeated and depressed and I didn’t want to sleep with my husband.”

“Only an evil person could do that shit,” she continued, later apologizing to the judge for cursing.

Cardi revealed that she went to therapy due to the toll the videos took on her.

In response to her defeat in the case, Tasha took to social media to say, “My Husband, Attorney’s, & I fought really hard. I want to thank them for their long hours and sleepless nights. Winos it’s only up from here. See y’all in a few days..” Back to work.
