Cardi B, the Grammy-winning rapper, recently spoke out about her mental health in her testimony in her libel case against Tasha K (a YouTuber who Cardi alleges has spread false rumours about herself).
LaTasha K (a.k.a. Tasha K, a YouTuber who has more than one million subscribers, stated that Cardi felt “helpless” because the social media personality spread rumours about Cardi online, including that she had contracted herpes. People magazine reported this.
The rapper testified before a Georgia jury on Thursday about how Kebe’s allegations, which included claims that Cardi had sexually transmitted disease, had impacted her.
Cardi said that she felt suicidal and added that she felt helpless.
According to TMZ Cardi stated that she felt defeated and depressed, and didn’t want her husband to go to bed with her.
She explained that she felt like she “didn’t deserve” her daughter Kulture. Offset, a Migos rapper, welcomed Kulture in July 2018.
According to Kebe, the ‘Hustlers star’ said that she had suffered from fatigue, weight loss and migraines. She also shared such rumours with her YouTube viewers in videos posted in 2018 and 2019.
Cardi apologized to the judge for profanity and said that only an evil person could do such a thing.
According to Rolling Stone, her trial against Kebe began Monday. Cardi filed her lawsuit in March 2019 and accused Kebe, among other things, of making “malicious claims” against her. She alleged that Kebe was a prostitute who cheated on her husband, used drugs, and had contracted HPV and herpes.
Cardi claimed that Kebe attempted to “destroy her career” by deliberately making false claims about her.
According to her, the “degrading, harassing” comments began in April 2018. Kebe posted a video via her YouTube channel unWinewithTashaK claiming Cardi’s pregnancies with Kulture could have resulted in a child with special needs.
“Kebe became obsessed by harassing and slandering [Cardi]”. “Kebe made at least 38 videos about [the rapper] in the 16 months before the filing of this suit,” the lawsuit claimed.
It was noted that one video shared in September 2018 had received 4 million views. This is significantly more than what Kebe “typically” garners, according to the complaint.
Kebe denied any wrongdoing, and tried to file her own suit against Cardi for assault, intentional infliction, and emotional distress. She claimed that Cardi “began publicly trashing” Kebe on the internet. This allegedly led to Kebe being threatened.
In July, Judge William M. Ray II disregarded Kebe’s claims.
He stated that Kebe had failed to show any evidence that plaintiff threatened Kebe herself or made Kebe believe she was going to hurt her.
