Celebrity blogger Latasha K, known online as UnwineWithTashaK, filed a $1 million lawsuit against rap star Cardi B. According to The Blast, the blogger, who claims to have 500,000 YouTube subscribers, said she received death threats after the rapper told “lies” about her on social media.

The site obtained court documents in which K admitted to publishing a video about the rapper with fellow blogger Starmarie Ebony Jones. The duo allegedly accused the rapper of using drugs and contracting sexually transmitted infections.

After the video went viral, K said Cardi privately contacted her and asked for it to be taken down. She refused and asked the rapper to appear in an interview. The “Bodak Yellow” artist declined K’s invitation and filed a defamation suit against both bloggers in March.

TMZ claims Cardi accused the blogger of saying that her daughter, Kulture, would be born with “intellectual disabilities” because of the rapper’s alleged drug use during pregnancy.

K said, “Cardi B began to publicly defame Ms. Kebe, referring to her as ‘this blogger lady, by stating that Ms. Kebe makes up fake stories; harasses all of Cardi B’s friends; constantly stalks Cardi B; falsely claims that she has legitimate sources giving her information about Cardi B; uses Cardi B’s name for ‘click bait’; and many other false accusations.”

She also claimed she received “gang-related” threats and had to relocate due to the alleged harassment. Along with being pregnant, K claims she is suffering from anxiety, panic, humiliation and depression.
