The Bronx native testified that Tasha K.'s false reports sent her into a spiraling depression that affected her marriage to former Migos rapper, Offset. On the Jason Lee Show, she candidly explained how Tasha K's torment disrupted her life.
Cardi said the constant "insane lies" made her feel "harassed" by Tasha K. She even thought the blogger's goal was to make her "kill herself." The Grammy-nominated performer revealed she lost her sex drive and struggled to be intimate with her husband.
Not only did Tasha attack Cardi, but she also targeted her family and friends as well.
The performer said, "And some people say hurt people hurt people, but it's like sometimes hurt people gotta go to therapy or gotta find God."
Since Cardi won the judgment, she has been going hard in the paint to secure her funds. Her legal team fired off subpoenas to the blogger's bank and Google, where Tasha earns money from YouTube videos. She successfully collected thousands of dollars. However, now that Tasha filed for bankruptcy in Florida, all that is on hold.
We'll see how this turns out but we hope Cardi is able to fully collect her coins in the end.
