Following 2019 claims that a blogger made up harmful lies about the superstar rapper on the internet, a jury of her peers sided with Cardi B.
The musician won her libel case against Tasha K, who she sued for posting videos where she alleged, among other things, that the artist (born Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar) was a prostitute who dabbled in drugs and had contracted sexually transmitted diseases.
Represented by attorneys, Lisa Moore, Sarah Matz and William Pequignot, following a week-plus long trial, the defendant was found liable on 3 separate claims, and was ordered to pay Cardi B $4,000,000.00 in general damages and medical expenses. The judge confirmed that any potential punitive damages Tasha K might owe the rapper will be determined at a future hearing.
After suing her three years ago when the blogger refused to take down the damaging posts, Cardi took went the witness stand during the trial and testified she was suicidal during this period as a direct result of Tasha’s stories.
Concerning the verdict Tasha K tweeted “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.”
