Cardi B has testified in an ongoing libel and defamation lawsuit against a YouTuber named Latasha Kebe.
Filed in 2019, the suit alleges that Kebe, who goes by Tasha K online, led a “campaign of slander” against the rapper by posting multiple videos containing defamatory statements that were each counted millions of views, citing 38 different videos and multiple social media posts. One of the claims included in the lawsuit was that Kebe had told her viewers that Cardi B had contracted sexually transmitted diseases.
The trial began Monday in an Atlanta federal courthouse. While testifying, the rapper said that she felt fatigued, lost weight and developed anxiety and migraines due to Kebe’s alleged defamation of her, according to Billboard.
“I felt extremely suicidal,” Cardi B testified, per Billboard. “Only an evil person could do that s***.”
Kebe has denied the accusations and even filed a countersuit against the rapper, which was thrown out by a judge last year.
The trial will wrap up Thursday afternoon. The court will adjourn on Tuesday, January 18.
