Cardi B Takes YouTuber Tasha K To Trial for Alleged ‘Malicious Campaign’

In Summary

In the trial, the attorney will detail how the celebrity video blogger Tasha K slandered the star rapper with false posts about herpes, drug use and more alleged defamation. 

A malicious campaign went up on YouTube, and Cardi B and her attorneys were not going to let it get stuck

Cardi B and her attorneys are taking celebrity YouTuber Latasha Kebe, who goes by Tasha K, to trial on Monday. Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almánzar, accused Kebe of a “malicious campaign” to tear down reputation by spreading rumors of sexually transmitted diseases and other slander-filled accusations. 

Cardi B and her attorneys claim Kebe produced several YouTube videos and social media posts saying the superstar rapper contracted herpes and sodomized herself and exotic dancers with a beer bottle. 

In the lawsuit, the rapper said Kebe uploaded more than 38 videos spreading false information.  

Kebe denied the accusations and countersued Cardi B, stating she incited her fans by asking them to harass her on social media.

Kebe’s counterclaims was tossed by a judge last year due to a lack of evidence. 

The trial has been scheduled to run for at least two weeks. However, whether Cardi B will take the witness stands remains to be seen. 

Cardi B will be represented by Lisa F. Moore and William A. Pequignot of the law firm Moore Pequignot LLC. Kebe will be represented by Sadeer Sabbak and Olga Izmaylova of Sabbak & Izmaylova PC. 

“Cardi probably has a pretty good shot at this one,” said lawyer Michael S. Overing, an expert in defamation and libel law who’s not involved in the case, in an interview with Rolling Stone. He said the allegedly false claims about Cardi are “very specific factual statements” with the potential to be “readily proven false.”
