In an effort to avoid paying Cardi B $4 million after the rapper won a defamation lawsuit against her, YouTuber Tasha K has filed for bankruptcy, according to Billboard.

After the gossip blogger claimed on her YouTube page that Cardi B engaged in drug usage and prostitution and had STDs, the Grammy-winning rapper launched a lawsuit against her. About 18 months ago, the YouTuber, whose real name is Latasha Kebe, lost the legal battle.

She stated in her bankruptcy filing on Thursday that she has fewer than $60,000 in total assets to distribute. Tasha, who filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, said she was unable to pay her creditors, who include Cardi B, more than $3.4 million in liabilities.

According to the YouTuber, the rapper from Invasion of Privacy must receive $3,380,642 from her as a consequence of a “judgement.” Despite the fact that Cardi B clearly said in a tweet that she will seek all of the money owing to her when the jury found in her favor in January 2022, Thursday’s petition indicates that it might be some time before the rapper gets the whole amount she is owed.

According to Billboard, Tasha stated that the total value of all of her assets was $58,595, with a substantial portion of that sum going toward a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado that serves as collateral for an unpaid auto loan. She also claimed to have other items worth $11,750, which she said included two Louis Vuitton handbags and a bank account with $95 in cash.

In addition to her assets and debts, Tasha stated that she had $10,000 in a “Google (owners of YouTube) account,” but Cardi B’s legal team was able to get the money back last year.

Cardi B’s attorneys claimed in the 2019 complaint that Tasha ran a “malicious campaign” on social media and YouTube to harm their client’s reputation. The 30-year-old’s attorneys said that numerous attempts to have Tasha erase her videos were unsuccessful.

Tasha alleged in one of the films featured in the lawsuit that Cardi B engaged in sex activities “with beer bottles on f—ing stripper stages.” Additionally, she alleged in other videos that the Grammy Award-winning rapper had used narcotics, engaged in prostitution, committed adultery, and tested positive for herpes.

After jurors found Tasha responsible for defamation, invasion of privacy, and deliberate cause of emotional distress, Cardi B finally prevailed in the lawsuit. A federal appeals court rejected Tasha’s later attempt to challenge the judgment.

Tasha had also said at first that she intended to pursue the issue “all the way to the Supreme Court if need be” and for however long it took. However, because of the submission on Thursday, the legal process would need to be suspended.
