Cardi B has finally won a defamation lawsuit against a gossip blogger. In March 2019, the rapper sued Latasha Kebe, better known as Tasha K, for spreading false information about her online, including allegations that she had contracted multiple STI, used drugs and worked as a person.
After a week-long trial in federal court, Tasha was also found guilty of defamation, invasion of privacy and intentionally causing emotional distress. According to Rolling Stone, Cardi was ordered to pay $1. 25 million in “pain and suffering and/or reputational injury” and $250,000 for medical expenses. Tasha hinted in YouTube videos, which have received millions of views, that Cardi‘s baby could be born with a mental disability, implying that Cardi was doing drugs during her pregnancy.
As she took the stand, Cardi began to cry as she told the jury how she felt about the false allegations. “I felt extremely suicidal,” Cardi told the court. “Only a bad person can do that. ”
Following the announcement of the verdict, Tasha K issued a statement on Twitter.
“I‘m my husband, I‘m a lawyer, and I fought really hard,” she wrote. “I want to thank them for their long hours and sleepless nights. Winos is just from here. I‘ll see you in a few days 🥂🙏 get back to work. ”
Tasha also faces punitive damages, which will be determined at a hearing on Tuesday.
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.#unwinewithtashak#nowigottagobye
