Cardi B has been hit with a $1 million counter lawsuit by a YouTube blogger who claims she fears for her life after receiving death threats from the rapper's fans.
Tasha K, who runs the popular unWinewithTashaK YouTube Channel, says she lost revenue after advertisers pulled their ads from her platform due to Cardi.
The Bronx rapper sued Tasha in March for defamation of character, saying the vlogger persistently spread lies about her in a series of damaging Youtube videos.
But Tasha K countersued, saying she lost business and received threats after the rapper "publicly defamed" her.
The "Bodak Yellow" hitmaker also sued vlogger Starmarie Ebony Jones for defamation after she and Tasha teamed up for a podcast video in which they made allegations about Cardi's sex life and alleged drug use.
In documents obtained by The Blast, Tasha K, real name Latasha Kebe, who also runs a blog, claims the rapper reached out to her privately and asked her to take the video down, but Tasha responded by offering to do an interview which Cardi declined.
Tasha's legal team claims the "I Like It" rapper then "began to publicly defame Ms. Kebe, referring to her as 'this blogger lady', by stating that Ms. Kebe makes up fake stories; harasses all of Cardi B's friends; constantly stalks Cardi B; falsely claims that she has legitimate sources giving her information about Cardi B; uses Cardi B's name for 'click bait'; and many other false accusations."
As a result, Tasha claims she has received threats and has been forced to flee from her home. She also says her business has suffered and she is losing money due to subscribers and advertisers abandoning her channel.
The vlogger says she is pregnant and has been suffering from severe emotional distress, anxiety, panic, stress, insomnia, humiliation, and depression. She is seeking more than $1 million in damages for pain and suffering.
When Cardi, 26, filed her defamation lawsuit against the two bloggers, she claimed Tasha had posted more than 20 defamatory videos about her in the past 14 months, including a joint video with Jones. She sought unspecified damages and asked for an injunction to have the specified clips taken down.
