Cardi B has hit out at Tasha K after the YouTuber mentioned Takeoff in relation to the rapper’s video about the missing Titanic submersible.
On Tuesday, Cardi publicly criticized Brian Szasz, the man who identified himself as the stepson of one of the passengers aboard the missing submersible, for attending a Blink-182 concert amid the crisis.
“You supposed to be at the house sad,” the rapper said in an Instagram video.
Under a clip of Cardi’s video shared by The Neighborhood Talk on Wednesday, Tasha K, who last year lost a $4 million defamation case against Cardi, appeared to accuse Cardi of hypocrisy over the way she handled her own grief after the death of Takeoff.
Takeoff was shot and killed in Houston, Texas, in November.
“Wasn’t she posting guns right after Takeoff died? And on the internet, cutting up not long after his sudden takeoff?” Tasha K wrote.
“I’m just asking…Everyone grieves diff…,” she added.
On Wednesday, Cardi, who is the wife of Takeoff’s former Migos band member Offset, shared a screenshot of Tasha K’s comment to her Twitter account, calling the social media star “despicable” for mentioning the late rapper.
“To bring up Takeoff to prove a fake ass point is disgusting,” she wrote. “I lost weight, I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep, me and my man STILL dealing wit that to to this day. I’m a rapper, we targeted all the time so of course I have guns for protection.”
Cardi added that for Tasha K’s transgression, she would “make sure” her “kid don’t go to college.”
“You think my lawyers don’t know you hiding money in Africa?” she said. “Ima make sure I get every red cent of my 4 mill. DONT EVER PUT TAKEOFF NAME IN YA MOUTH.”
Cardi sued Tasha K, whose real name is Latasha Kebe, for defamation in 2019, claiming the YouTuber had launched a “malicious campaign” against her and became “obsessed” with her.
Per the 2019 lawsuit, Kebe, who has over 1 million subscribers on her YouTube channel, claimed Cardi had tested positive for herpes and had substance-abuse issues.
The “Bodak Yellow” rapper won the case in January 2022, with a federal jury ordering Kebe to pay Cardi $4 million in damages and legal fees.
Kebe appealed the verdict later in 2022, but it was upheld by the US Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in March.
Opening up about the ordeal during an appearance on the premiere episode of “The Jason Lee Show” in January, Cardi said she wanted to “die” as a result of Kebe’s claims.
“I kept telling people, ‘I just wanna die, I just wish I was dead, I wanna be dead,'” she said. “I wasn’t a celebrity. I was somebody that really wanted to be dead. I didn’t wanna see my kid, I didn’t wanna be with my man. It just made me cry.”
Representatives for neither Cardi B nor Tasha K immediately responded to requests for comment.
