The “WAP” artist took the witness stand during the fourth day of a trial against YouTuber Latasha Kebe and gave an emotional testimony about the huge toll she’s taken because of the blogger’s allegedly inflammatory posts, including claims of her having herpes and another about an incident regarding a beer bottle, according to Billboard

Cardi B said, “I felt extremely suicidal” and said she felt “helpless” while Kebe, a celebrity news blogger whose nickname is Tasha K, continued to broadcast the alleged lies about the rapper to her almost 1 million followers on YouTube. She said because of the situation, she developed anxiety, fatigue, migraines and weight loss.

“Only an evil person could do that s–t,” Cardi B said according to Billboard. 

This latest testimony comes amid a 2019 lawsuit filed by Cardi B, which accuses Kebe of legally defaming her with numerous videos that had shocking claims. On Jan. 10, the jury trial kicked off in an Atlanta federal courthouse and is projected to continue into next week. 

At the beginning of the trial, Cardi B’s attorneys questioned Kebe and she reportedly offered bombshell admissions, according to Billboard. A report from Law360 highlighted that Kebe told jurors she willfully published lies about the rapper to make money for her business.
