Youtuber's claim made me 'extremely suicidal', Cardi B confesses in libel trial

American rapper, Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, aka Cardi B has confessed that a YouTuber, Latasha Kebe, known as Tasha K's claims against her made her feel 'extremely suicidal.'

The mother of two said this as she testified in her libel trial on Thursday in Atlanta, Georgia.

Billboard reports that Cardi B while speaking with her legal team said; "I felt extremely suicidal"

"I felt defeated and depressed and I didn't want to sleep with my husband (Offset)," she said in court, according to TMZ, adding that she felt like "I didn't deserve my kid."

According to Billboard, Cardi suffered fatigue, weight loss, migraines, and anxiety, as Kebe spread the speculation to her nearly 1 million YouTube followers in videos uploaded in 2018 and 2019.

When her lawyer asked what she thought about the blogger after seeing the rumours, she said, "I felt like only a demon could do that s**t," before apologising for her language.

In 2019 Cardi B filed a lawsuit against Kebe, accusing her of making “malicious” claims against her, such as alleging she was a prostitute, cheated on her husband, used cocaine, and contracted herpes and HPV.

The 'WAP' crooner said Kebe tried to “destroy” her career by intentionally making “false” claims about her.

She alleged that the “degrading and harassing” remarks first began around April 2018, when Kebe shared a video, via her YouTube channel, unWinewithTashaK, claiming Cardi’s pregnancy with Kulture could result in a child born with special needs.

The lawsuit added; “Kebe became obsessed with slandering and harassing [Cardi]. In the 16 months preceding the filing of this lawsuit, Kebe put out at least 38 videos regarding [the rapper].”

It was also pointed out that one of the videos shared in September 2018, brought in 4 million views, which is “substantially” larger than the audience Kebe “typically garners,” according to the complaint.

Kebe has however denied any wrongdoing and attempted to file her own lawsuit against Cardi for assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress, alleging that Cardi “began to publicly trash” her on the internet, resulting in her allegedly being threatened.

Judge William M. Ray II dismissed Kebe’s allegations in July, Rolling Stone reported.
