Daria BedenkoAll materialsWrite to the authorThe legal battle between the two has been ongoing for the past couple of years, with Cardi B suing blogger Tasha K over the latter’s claims that the iconic rapper was a prostitute and had sexually transmitted diseases.In a tearful testimony on Thursday, rap superstar Cardi B revealed that she felt “suicidal” because of what YouTuber Tasha K said about her and her private life.
"I feel like only a demon could do that sh*t", Cardi said in court, breaking down in tears, according to Dennis Byron, a Hip Hop Enquirer reporter who did a text stream of the 13 January hearing.
When asked about whether she had “thin skin” by the plaintiff’s attorney, Cardi replied: “I don’t have thin skin for criticism but I do have thin skin for lies”.
"I felt defeated and depressed and I didn't want to sleep with my husband", Cardi continued and added that she also felt like she "didn't deserve my kid", referring to when she and her husband Offset welcomed their daughter Kulture some three years ago.
Tasha K has been sued by the rapper over claims that the latter allegedly had sexually transmitted diseases like HPV and herpes. During Thursday’s hearing, the blogger reportedly admitted that she knew her claims were “probably untrue” but chose to post them anyway in order to capitalise.
Cardi’s emotional testimony did not leave the social media world indifferent, with many netizens flocking to Twitter threads to support the rapper and condemn Tasha K – who has not commented on Thursday’s hearing.
One user even pointed out how the case, which, among other things, revolves around an invasion of privacy, echoes the name of Cardi B’s debut album.
Others, however, wondered why Cardi reacted in such a way.
