Cardi B Awarded At Least $1 Million in Libel Case Against YouTuber

After a nearly three-year fight, Cardi B has won her federal libel case against YouTuber Tasha K, TMZ reports. 

The MC is being awarded at least $1 million in the case against the YouTuber, whose real name is Latasha Kebe, according to the publication. Kebe was found liable on 3 separate counts, after claiming Cardi was a prostitute, took drugs, and contracted STIs, among other things. A future hearing may determine possible punitive damages that Kebe owes Cardi, the outlet reports.

Monday’s verdict followed a two-week trial, per Billboard, and Cardi was awarded $1.25 million in damages, with the potential of that money growing. Cardi’s legal victory comes after she testified earlier this month that she felt “extremely suicidal” in response to the YouTuber’s claims, and that she also felt “defeated and depressed, and I didn’t want to sleep with my husband.” Cardi—represented in the case by Lisa F. Moore and William A. Pequignot of Moore Pequignot LLC, and by Gary P. Adelman and Sarah M. Matz of Adelman Matz PC—also said that she had to go to therapy as a result of the claims, and that “only an evil person” could do what Tasha did to her.
