Tasha K Files Appeal After Losing Defamation Case Presented By Cardi B

Weeks after losing a court decision after Hip-Hop fashionista Cardi B sued her for defamation, blogger Tasha K has filed an appeal in hopes of not having to pay the $4 million in damages she owes the Bronx rapper.

According to Radar Online, Tasha K, who was ordered to pay Cardi B $4 million in damages after she was sued for defamation, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, has appealed the decision in the case.

Legal papers obtained by Radar Online reveal that the 39-year-old blogger’s legal team has formally filed a notice of appeal last Thursday on March 17, exactly one month to the day after a jury found her liable over comments she made about Cardi on her YouTube program.

“The above-named Defendants, Latasha Kebe and Kebe Studios LLC, appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit from the final judgment entered on February 17, 2022,” the filing states. “Respectfully submitted this 17th day of March, 2022.”

Earlier this year, the Grammy Award-winning rapper was awarded nearly $3 million in punitive damages and attorneys’ fees after a jury found Tasha K, real name Latasha Kebe, liable on counts of defamation, invasion of privacy, and infliction of emotional distress. Variety reports that the $3 million comes on top of the $1.25 million she was awarded.

According to a report by Law360, Tasha K reportedly admitted that she purposely published lies and other falsehoods about Cardi B to make bank from her blogging business.

Tasha K appeared on a recent podcast episode with Kendall Kyndall and Kendra G of Social Society. The hosts asked Tasha K if she even had that type of money to pay out to Cardi B in the interview. She quickly responded by saying, “I ain’t got it.”

In that interview, Tasha K did mention that this move was coming.

“But listen, we have business things in place that takes care of things like this. But of course, the appellate court and the Supreme Court is in process right now.” When the hosts pressed her again about the judgment, she said, “Who trying to pay $4 million?”

After the podcast aired, Cardi B didn’t mention anyone by name or even state what she was referring to,  but her tweet seemingly is in response to Tasha K’s initial reaction to not paying her.
