Los Angeles, March 23 (IANS) Rapper Cardi B is suing bloggers for claiming she is a “prostitute with herpes”.
Cardi filed the lawsuit against Latasha K, who has a blog called unWinewithTashaK. She’s angry about 23 videos Tasha’s posted over the last 14 months.
According to the suit, Tasha posted a video last April saying Cardi’s baby might be born with intellectual disabilities. The inference seems to be Cardi was doing drugs that would harm then-unborn Kulture, reports tmz.com.
She’s also suing Starmarie Ebony Jones, who, according to the suit, posted a video in September accusing Cardi of doing cocaine, engaging in prostitution. Jones allegedly says of Cardi, “Just a Grammy nominated prostitute running around spreading her herpes”.
Latasha and Jones even posted a video together making more allegations of STDs.
In the suit, Cardi says she’s never been a prostitute or a user of cocaine. She also denies having herpes.
She says she’s given the women an opportunity to retract their statements, but since they’ve refused to do so, Cardi is taking them to court.
She is suing them for defamation, and seeking an injunction to delete the videos they posted.
