Cardi B filed a lawsuit against an Atlanta blogger in March for allegedly spreading rumors that she used drugs, prostituted and infected lovers with herpes. Now, the woman is fighting back with a countersuit.
Latasha K, born Latasha Kebe, recently countersued the rapper for slander and defamation in Atlanta, according to court documents obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
While Kebe, who runs “unWinewithTashaK” YouTube channel, admits to publishing a video about Cardi B’s alleged drug use and prostitution, she said the artist declined her invitation to address those claims on her show.
As a result, Kebe claims Cardi B made negative comments about her online, which has caused her business to suffer. She said her channel, which has more than 500,000 subscribers, is losing followers and advertisers.
Kebe, who is pregnant, said she has also received “gang-related” threats and has had to relocate as a result.
She is seeking $1 million in damages.
Cardi B filed a defamation lawsuit against Kebe and Starmarie Ebony Jones in Atlanta. Her suit mentioned more than 20 clips posted by Kebe during a 14-month period about Cardi B’s alleged drug use and prostitution.
The rapper has not responded to the latest developments in the case.
