Cardi B – Tasha K Says “There Was No Defamation & Suicidal Thoughts” As She Reacts To Losing Defamation Lawsuit To Rapper
Tasha K (real name Tasha Kebe) is speaking out for the first time, addressing her legal battle loss to Cardi B. The YouTuber took to her YouTube page, to react to the lawsuit.
Reading from a prepared statement she began,
“These last four years fighting this conspiracy case, have been extremely challenging … The verdict handed down on Monday was no shock to myself, my husband or my legal team. We called bluff against a machine that wanted to bully me for not wavering from my personal beliefs. A machine that has corporate interests to protect prostitution, drug use, promiscuity and to glorify the violence that wreaks havoc in our society and in our neighborhood.”
She also stated,
“There was no defamation, no invasion of privacy, and suicidal thoughts,” she said, — referencing Cardi’s testimony that Kebe’s allegations drove her to a dark place mentally — before adding, “and we proved that with sufficient, factual evidence,” without specifying exactly what that was. We will fight, no matter the cost or length, even if this takes years,” Kebe continued, adding later, “all the way up to the Supreme Court if need be.” She also said that while the court did not ask her to remove the videos that were part of the trial, she did so anyway “to show good faith to the courts.”
She later tweeted:
No LIES were told on anyone. I never admitted to lying about anything. Noone threw anyone under the bus. Mostly everything reported was a lie from the inside. The Court Transcripts will be available to the public soon. I forgot to add this into my speech. Read Them.

During her speech, Tasha did note that she felt that the case was meant to financially drain her, but it did not.
