Cardi B Files $15 Million Countersuit Against Ex-Manager
11 July, 2018, 20:11
Rapper Cardi B (real name Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar) is countersuing her former manager Klenord "Shaft" Raphael. The countersuit lists Shaft received a 20% commission and tried to take advantage of her Sonymusic publishing deal by demanding that he received 50% of revenue.
Raphael also claims that he was defamed by the Love and Hip-Hop star, and was cut off, financially, after she "made it big" as a result of the hit VH1 show.
Hollywood rapper Cardi B (name: Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar) has filed a countersuit against her ex-manager who tried to create a rift between her relationship with her rapper husband Offset (name: OKiari Kendrell Cephus). Shaft, said Cardi, was trying to tell her who she should and shouldn't see romantically.
Cardi B claims her ex-manager was too intrusive. She is suing him for more than $15 million (GBP11.3 million).
The mother-to-be said in documents that the management deal Shaft presented was "grossly unfair", "highly one-sided" and "highly favorable to himself" according to legal documents obtained by TMZ.
The complaint, which can be read in full here, states: "Ms. Almanzar entrusted Shaft and his related entities with many aspects of her professional and business affairs and that trust was abused".
In one instance, he said Offset contacted him late past year, saying he was a "snake" who had taken more than his fair share of Cardi B's earnings. 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.
Cardi B is now one of the hottest hip-hop artists with the success of her smash hit "Bodak Yellow" previous year.
Cardi B is being represented by Paul LiCalsi, an entertainment attorney who has represented major artist such as The Beatles.
Raphael is seeking at least $10 million damages through the suit.
