Cardi B Awarded $1.25M In Libel Case Against Tasha K

Cardi B has won her federal libel lawsuit against Tasha K.

In March 2019, Cardi filed a defamation lawsuit against the popular blogger and YouTube star, who claimed the Grammy Award-winning artist is a drug addict, a former prostitute, and a gang member with herpes. 

Tasha filed a $3 million countersuit against Cardi, but the case was ultimately thrown out.

During the two-week trial, Cardi B testified that she felt defeated, depressed and suicidal over the things Tasha was saying about her. 

A jury found that Tasha K and her company, Kebe Studios LLC, were liable for: 

  • Defamation
  • Invasion of Privacy – False Light
  • Intentional Infliction of Emotion Distress

Cardi B was awarded $1,000,000 in general damages (pain and suffering and/or repetitional injury) and $250,000 in medical expenses.

After the verdict, Tasha K took to Twitter writing: 

My Husband, Attorney’s, & I fought really hard. I want to thank them for their long hours and sleepless nights. Winos it’s only up from here. See y’all in a few days.

Back to work.



I forgot to thank all of the viewers for all of your support. In this business, this is part of the protocol. Everyone in my seat has been through this, & this ain’t the last. This comes with the territory. See y’all Friday! It’s long overdue!
