In 2019 American Internet personality Tasha K made some hurting and disturbing allegations towards American rapper Cardi B.

Lawyers of the rapper stated that the doings of Tasha K was a ‘malicious campaign’ against the rapper and took a decision to go to court.
On a video on which the lawsuit was based on, you could watch Tasha K allegedly accusing Cardi B of engaging in xplicit acts in the past like inserting bottles in her priv ate parts at night clubs, contracting STIs and engaging in socially unaccepted behaviors.
Cardi B lawyers on seeing the series of videos said they tried several occassions for the vlogger to pull down those videos but all to no avail. Hence they had to take it a step further and file a lawsuit because these allegations have caused a lot of damage to the American rapper emotionally.
During the court hearing of the Tasha K and Cardi B lawsuit, Cardi B made it known to the federal court that the videos caused her a lot of damage to the extent of she almost taking her life during that time. ‘i felt depressed and defeated that i didn’t have the courage to be intimate with my husband’ she told the court.
When asked in court about the vlogger’s assertions, Cardi emotionally responded: “I felt like only a demon could do that sh*t” before apologizing to the judge for swearing.
She later said bursting into tears that she felt ‘she never deserved her kid’ making her anxious and fall ill in the process.
