New court documents caused attorneys to accuse the vlogger of allegedly failing to disclose secret accounts when she filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
The legal feud between rapper Cardi B and YouTuber Tasha K, whose real name is Latasha Kebe, escalated when new court documents revealed that the rappers attorneys are accusing the vlogger of hiding secret offshore accounts and allegedly failing to disclose them when she filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
The internet personality cardi-b-defamation-verdict/” title=””>filed bankruptcy back in May 2023 claiming she had less than $60,000 in assets, Billboard reported. But, according to documents tasha-k-secret-offshore-accounts-bankruptcy-battle/” title=””>obtained by XXL magazine, Cardi’s lawyers claimed Tasha K and her husband, Cheickna Kebe, were not truthful about “the existence of offshore and domestic trusts” created for their benefit.
The “Money” rapper’s lawyers pointed out that in depositions, both Tasha K and her husband testified they did not have any savings accounts, IRAs, or trusts in their names or their children’s names. However, XXL added that Cardi’s attorneys say they have uncovered “multiple domestic and offshore trusts” that were allegedly never disclosed by Tasha K, including at least one trust where $30,000 was allegedly transferred. Other alleged trusts were located in the Cook Islands, the Island of Nevis, as well as Florida and Georgia, according to the magazine.
Cardi’s lawyers suspect a third party named Patricia Haynes is allegedly familiar with the trusts. The magazine pointed out that the rapper’s legal team wants a judge to get Haynes to comply with their subpoenas. The lawyers said Haynes is “deliberately evading service” despite allegedly being aware of the subpoena.
If Cardi and her team of attorneys prove Tasha K intentionally hid assets, the YouTuber could face up to five years in prison and criminal fines.
Cardi won a $4 million defamation lawsuit against Tasha K in October in 2022. When Tasha K shared videos about her financial struggles, Cardi hinted that she might be open to forgiveness last year in 2023, according to XXL.
Since then, Cardi’s attorney’s alleged, “neither Defendant Kebe [Tasha K] nor her husband have been truthful regarding the existence of offshore and domestic trusts.” And the rapper now appears to want to collect the full $4 million judgment.
