Cardi B And Blogger Tasha K’s Legal Battle Rages On
The legal battle between gossip blogger Tasha K and rapper Cardi B has taken an interesting turn.
As Complex reports, the blogger has requested to set up a payment plan in 20 quarterly installments of $220,000 instead of paying the full amount of $3,868,753.47 that she owes the rapper. Cardi B was allowed to begin Tasha K’s assets in April 2023.
In 2019, a lawsuit was filed against Tasha K for defamation, invasion of privacy, and infliction of emotional distress. Tasha K told her audience of one million followers that Cardi B had herpes, cheated on her husband Offset, and used hard drugs, among other claims.
Tasha K filed an appeal and did not pay Cardi B, but her appeal was denied as Tasha K failed to present evidence proving the verdict was wrong.
“Defendant Latasha Kebe asks for a new trial, saying that there was insufficient evidence for the jury verdict against her,” reads the appeals court statement. “But as she all but admits, she didn’t make either of the required post-verdict motions in the district court.”
According to XXL, as part of her Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings, Tasha K filed a Plan of Reorganizing, which describes how the blogger plans to pay off her creditors, which include Cardi B. Her bankruptcy filing also lists her assets ranging from $50,000 to $100,000, which include a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado, electronics, home furniture, two Louis Vuitton purses, and clothes.
Cardi B has not responded to Tasha K’s payment plan but will have an opportunity to approve or dismiss it.
In August, Cardi B asked the judge overseeing her case not to dismiss the debt from Tasha K even though her bankruptcy filing allows her company, Kebe Studios LLC, to reorganize debts while it stays in business. Due to the Chapter 11 filing, the payments Tasha K must make to Cardi B were stopped, but they could be restarted if the debt can be proven to be connected to a willful or malicious injury.
