Celebrity blogger Latasha K, who goes by the moniker UnwineWithTashaK online, has filed a $1 million lawsuit against rap superstar Cardi B. According to reports The Blast, the blogger, said she received death threats after the rapper told “lies” about her on social media.
The site obtained court documents in which K admitted to publishing a video about the rapper with fellow blogger Starmarie Ebony Jones. The duo allegedly accused the rapper of using drugs and contracting sexually transmitted infections.
After the video went viral, K said Cardi privately contacted her with a request for the vid to be removed from her site. K refused but instead asked Cardi to make an appearance in an interview to address the situation. The “Bodak Yellow” artist declined K’s invitation and then filed a defamation suit against both bloggers in March.
According to TMZ, Cardi accused the blogger of saying that her daughter, Kulture, would be born with “intellectual disabilities” because of the rapper’s alleged drug use during pregnancy.
K said, “Cardi B 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.”
She also claimed she received “gang-related” threats and had to relocate due to the alleged harassment. Along with being pregnant, K claims she is suffering from anxiety, panic, humiliation, and depression. Also, K claims because of the alleged threats she has had to move from her residence and she has lost sponsorships and advertising.
Latasha says she runs a YouTube channel with a reported 500k followers and runs various other successful social media accounts for her celebrity blog.
