Cardi B says she wants a chat with Meghan Markle following the American rapper’s recent defamation lawsuit victory.
An American YouTuber who was found guilty of defaming rapper Cardi B will have to shell out £2 million more. As a result, the total costs are now over £3 million.
According to a lawyer, a set of “slanderous and defamatory statements” caused Cardi B (whose real name is Belcalis Almánzar) “embarrassment, humiliation, mental anguish, and emotional distress.”
This development comes after a Bot Sentinel report. According to the report, Meghan Markle was “actively targeted” by a £2.8 million “hate for-profit enterprise” on YouTube.
Back in 2019, Meghan found out that she had been one of the “most trolled people” in the world.
Cardi B Wins Million-Dollar Defamation Lawsuit
Much to her relief, the jurors sided with the 29-year-old rapper in a defamation case against YouTuber Tasha K (real name Latasha Kebe).
Moreover, the jurors added another $1.5 million in punitive damages on January 25. As if that weren’t enough, they ordered the blogger to repay the star’s $1.3 million legal bills.
In other words, Tasha K and her company are facing about a whopping $3 million in penalties.
Cardi B Wants To Chat With Meghan Markle
Taking to Twitter, Cardi shared a vague tweet. “I need a chat with Megan Markle,” she wrote.

This is a reference to the former Suits actress who won her own privacy suit against the Mail on Sunday in 2021.
The rapper sued Tasha K about two years ago over multiple videos that included disturbing claims about the rapper. When the trial began in Georgia federal court on January 10, Cardi admitted that she felt “suicidal” in the wake of Kebe’s videos.
Moreover, she claimed that only “an evil person could do that sh–.”
Aside from that, the jury held Tasha K liable for invasion of privacy by portraying in a false light, as well as intentional infliction of emotional distress, according to a report by Billboard.
The songstress rose to fame after “Bodak Yellow” exploded in 2017. She is currently the record holder for the most Hot 100 No. 1s among female rappers, with five.
Also, Cardi is the first female rapper to boast two Hot 100 No. 1s with no accompanying artists. Watch his space for the latest Royal Family and Celebrity news.
