The case was tried in an #Atlanta federal courtroom after the “Bodak Yellow” superstar filed a libel lawsuit in 2019 against the Youtuber, whose real name is Latasha Kebe, accusing her of spreading unsubstantiated claims and other falsehoods.
Monday Kebe was found liable on 3 separate claims, and Cardi’s been awarded at least $1 million. Punitive damages will be determined at a later date.
The 2019 lawsuit cited numerous social media posts and more than 38 videos uploaded by Kebe that referenced the rapper, including, “Cardi B “f***** herself with beer bottles on f****** stripper stages.” Another post by Kebe also claimed Cardi contracted herpes, which later turned out to be false after a Los Angeles hospital turned over records of STD tests performed on Cardi. A judge on the case confirmed those records were “not helpful.”
