Cardi B appeared before a federal jury yesterday to speak about how she felt after YouTuber Tasha K alleged that she had herpes.
Billboard reports that Cardi took to the witness stand on the fourth day of her suit against Tasha, real name Latasha Kebe. She filed the libel lawsuit against Kebe in 2019, accusing her of spreading misinformation and unsubstantiated claims about her.
The YouTube also claimed that Cardi had “fucked herself with beer bottles on fucking stripper stages.” Some of the posts and videos she made about Cardi referred to her as “Herpes B.”
“I felt extremely suicidal,” said Cardi in court.
She also said she felt “helpless” as Kebe shared more allegedly defamatory claims. “Only an evil person could do that shit,” she continued.
According to TMZ, she said the allegations made her feel “defeated and depressed, and I didn’t want to sleep with my husband.”
And she added that the rumors made her feel as though she didn’t “deserve my kid.” Cardi added that she went to therapy due to the toll the videos took on her.
It is worthy to note that the YouTuber also shared a disturbing video in which she said Cardi’s then unborn child, Kulture, would be born with disabilities.
