Cardi B Is Countersuing Her Former Manager For $15 Million!

Back in February, our favorite Bronx chick Cardi B was hit with a lawsuit by her former manager, Klenord Raphael aka Shaft. Shaft sued Cardi for $10 million, accusing the her of cutting him out after he helped build up her career. Shaft also accused Cardi of defamation for telling people he’d taken money from her.

Well Cardi ain’t goin’.

According to Cardi’s countersuit, Shaft made decisions with solely his best interests in mind, as well as constantly abusing her trust.

Cardi claims that Shaft  acted deceitfully after she gave him “complete trust and power” over her finances and business handlings.

“Shaft himself and through his entities took advantage of Ms. Almanzar’s trust and naiveté and persuaded her to sign contracts and to enter deals in which Shaft attempted to take an unreasonable and unconscionable portion of Ms. Almanzar’s earnings in the entertainment industry for himself,” the countersuit states.

The countersuit also accuses Shaft of putting “barriers between her and people close to her in an effort to maintain complete control over her.” The lawsuit states, “Shaft even attempted to control Ms. Almanzar’s personal life, telling her who she should and should not see romantically.”

Hopefully everything works out for Cardi and if she was being taken advantage of she gets that check!
