Cardi B may never get a $4 million defamation payout after the YouTuber who owes her filed for bankruptcy

The YouTuber who owes Cardi B $4 million from a defamation lawsuit filed for bankruptcy, meaning she may never end up paying.

In 2019 Cardi B sued Latasha Kebe, who has over 1 million subscribers on her channel unWinewithTashaK.

Cardi B attends the 2021 American Music Awards Red Carpet Roll-Out with host Cardi B at L.A. LIVE on November 19, 2021 in Los Angeles, California.

Cardi B alleged that Kebe went on a “malicious campaign” against her and became “obsessed.” The lawsuit claims Kebe made false statements about Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, in several videos, including that she had tested positive for herpes and abused drugs.

The trial took place in January 2022, with a jury finding Kebe guilty.

The judge decided Kebe should pay Cardi B $2.75 million in damages, plus legal fees bringing the total sum to more than $4 million. Kebe was on the hook for the payment as well as her YouTube company Kebe Studios LLC.

The lawsuit, reviewed by Insider at the time, accused Kebe of posting the videos to pump up her audience, saying she knew that “would draw substantially more viewers to her content than she typically garners.”

Further claims made by Kebe that included that Cardi B “prostituted for a living,” “engaged in a debasing act with a beer bottle,” and “committed infidelity.”

Kebe tried to counter-sue but had her case dismissed for lack of evidence.

“Think is a game but trust imma come for everything,” Cardi B tweeted in February after the verdict, adding “BBHMM” — an acronym for “bitch better have my money.”

While Cardi B successfully secured around $10,000 via payments Kebe was supposed to receive from YouTube ad revenue, according to Billboard, it’s unlikely she will see the rest.

Kebe filed for bankruptcy on May 25, claiming she had $58,595 .

Cardi B and Offset attend the 2023 Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted by Radhika Jones at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on March 12, 2023 in Beverly Hills, California.

According to the papers, seen by Insider, $46,750 of Kebe’s assets are tied up in an auto loan on a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado. The bankruptcy papers also list $2,750 of furniture, $2,500 of clothes, and a $6,000 engagement ring.

The combined income of Kebe and her partner is listed as $30,348.46, though Kebe states she only has $95 in her bank account.

All litigation is now automatically paused while Kebe’s bankruptcy claim plays out.
