Lawsuit Won Filed by Cardi B Against YouTuber Tasha K

Back in 2019, Cardi B alleged that Kebe aka Tasha K (unwinewithtashak on YouTube) became obsessed with her and kept running this campaign about Cardi B having herpes and abusing drugs. The jury found Tasha K liable for defamation, invasion of privacy, and intentionally inflicting emotional distress.

“They weren’t even looking at me,” Shaq said, remembering the first time he met Prince. “I guess Prince was saying he was gonna marry the most beautiful girl in the world, so he had girls from everywhere just trying to impress him.
