The Defense Team For Cardi B Wants The Judge To Reject Tasha K’s Appeal In The Defamation Case
Cardi’s legal team asked the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold the significant judgment against YouTuber Latesha “Tasha K” Kebe on Thursday (October 28).
A multimillion-dollar defamation case that the “WAP” rapper won earlier this year is currently being appealed, and Cardi B’s legal team is pleading with the to dismiss it.
As part of the judgment in the libel action she and the rapper known as “Bodak Yellow” were involved in for years, the court’s decision, in this case, mandates that the content provider pay a whopping $3.8 million.
Tasha K has often expressed her open denial of her ability to pay the debt and her opinion that the judge’s decision was unfair and “solely based on pity and payola.”
Tasha K’s lawyer, W. Andrew Pequignot, called the YouTuber “patently absurd and depraved” in a statement published by AllHipHop.
Cardi B filed the $75,000 lawsuit in 2019, but the case wasn’t decided until the beginning of 2022.
The Grammy Judgement-winning rapper received an additional $1.5 million in punitive damages and an additional $1.3 million in legal fees in January after a Georgia judge increased the Invasion of Privacy lyricist’s initial $1.25 million damages award.
Tasha K made a number of false accusations about Cardi, including that she had herpes, used a beer bottle as a sex object while working as a dancer, was a prostitute, and was addicted to cocaine.
