Today in Hip Hop News, Cardi B tears up on the Atlanta stand as she defends her “STD” case.
The “Bodak Yellow” rapper is addressing claims made by Youtuber Tasha K.
Cardi B, whose actual name is Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, said she felt "suicidal" at times after Tasha's claimed statements, during a court hearing in Atlanta on Thursday.
According to court filings, the Youtuber claimed the Bronx native has herpes, was a dancer who used a beer bottle as a sex toy, worked as a prostitute, and snorted cocaine.
Cardi B went on to say that before the blogger's claims, she had never felt suicidal. Cardi alluded to feeling unworthy of having a family and completing her wifely responsibilities, according to sources.
"I didn't want to sleep with my spouse because I felt dejected and unhappy." "I didn't deserve my baby," Cardi continued.
Tasha K claimed in a previous lawsuit rejected in Cardi's favor that the "WAP" rapper intimidated her and caused her mental distress after making inflammatory statements and sexual accusations insinuating Cardi B was a prostitute with herpes and HIV.
Tasha K, meanwhile, reportedly claimed earlier this week that she willfully published falsehoods about Cardi because it benefited her platform's commercial interests.
The court will most likely be delayed until Tuesday.
