Rapper Cardi B sues bloggers over claims of drugs, prostitution, herpes

Bronx star goes to Instagram Live to blast them for speaking on her daughter

Cardi B is suing two bloggers who have made numerous embarrassing allegations, including that she has herpes and spoke ill about her daughter.


It seems as if rapper Cardi B’s “history” is trying to distract people from her “now.”

However, the Grammy award-winner is not about to be dragged into the gutter with rumors or dust ups from her past. Mrs. Offset is suing two bloggers who have made it their business to remind the public of who she used to be in a series of videos that make numerous embarrassing allegations, including that she has herpes.

Cardi, whose given name is Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, says that these videos are false. The bloggers in the lawsuits are Latasha K and Starmarie Ebony Jones.  Cardi contends that the two have portrayed her as a prostitute who willfully spread herpes to her partners, and talked recklessly about her daughter, 8-month-old Kulture Kiari.

The 26-year-old Bronx bomber is suing for defamation of character and seeks an injunction to compel the bloggers to delete the videos, TMZ reports.

The suit brings issue with more than 20 other clips posted by Tasha K over a period of 14 months.

In one video, the blogger claims then-unborn Kulture could be born with intellectual challenges. The blogger infers that the cause of this projected handicapped would have been due to Cardi being on drugs while pregnant.

Regarding Jones, Cardi is suing her because she posted a video last year in which she said Cardi is “just a Grammy nominated prostitute running around spreading her herpes.” In the same video, Jones accused Cardi of doing cocaine and molly.

In the lawsuit, Cardi denies having ever done either drug or being a prostitute, TMZ reported. Cardi gave both bloggers an opportunity to retract their claims but neither did so, according to AllHipHop.com.

Here is a video of Cardi on her live confronting the bloggers:

While the public buzzed about the lawsuit, a video of unknown source and unknown date circulated on social media of Cardi B saying that she used to promise men sex, drug them, and then rob them in order to “survive.”

“Nothing was … handed to me,” she says in the video. “Nothing.”


In a tweet that appeared to be a response to the video, Cardi posted on Twitter Saturday, “I never claim to be a angel.”
