Cardi B Countersues Former Manager Shaft for $15 Million

Postado Julho 11, 2018

Cardi B has filed a counter suit against her former manager who took her to court in April.

The 25-year-old rapper retaliated as her manager Klenord Raphael aka Shaft, filed a $10 million lawsuit against her, alleging a breach of contract, unjust enrichment, declaratory judgment and defamation. She said he also stepped over the line, trying to place "barriers between her and people close to her in an effort to maintain complete control over her".

Cardi B's countersuit filed Thursday seeks to render as void her contracts with Shaft.

According to TMZ, the rapper has struck back with a counterclaim against her ex-manager, a man professionally known as Shaft.

Cardi B is not letting her pregnancy stop her from taking care of business.

A representative for Cardi B was not immediately available for comment.

The former "LHHNY" star took to Twitter Thursday afternoon and wrote, "I didn't sign a 360 f**k deal i sign a f*uck deal with my management that I no longer work with". He also sued Cardi B - real name Belcalis Almanzar - claiming she and her publicist, Patientce Foster (sic) disparaged him on social media. She later deleted the tweet.

She further claimed that the manager tried to gain control over her career as well, in addition to her personal life. It says the former manager and his companies' behavior is "an egregious and reprehensible breach of all trust and confidence placed in them".

In one instance, he said Offset contacted him late previous year, saying he was a "snake" who had taken more than his fair share of Cardi B's earnings.

He continued: 'While he is proud of their successful collaborations as she evolved from Instagram influencer to music megastar, Shaft is disappointed by her actions to freeze him out of her career, which are detailed in the complaint'. This apparently included her relationships as she claims Shaft would tell her "who she should and should not see romantically".
