Rapper Cardi B has sued her ex-manager for $15 million for abusing her and trying to have a total control over her .

Klenord Raphael, otherwise known as Shaft, documented suit against Cardi back in April, asserting he’d developed her vocation just to be forgotten exposed to the harsh elements once she hit easy street.


In any case, on Thursday, Cardi hit back, countersuing Shaft and charging he picked up her trust, cut her off from different companions and consultants, and afterward marked her on to gets that were differently portrayed in the suit as “horribly out of line,” “exceedingly uneven” and “profoundly positive to himself.”

The suit, recorded in New York’s Southern District by lawyer Paul LiCalsi of Robins Kaplan, claims that Shaft utilised cash that had a place with Cardi — whose genuine name is Belcalis Almanzar — for “individual travel, amusement and costs,” and that workers of Shaft’s organization, KSR, “[helped] themselves to the ‘Bank of Almanzar,’ ” taking “advances” of up to $15,000 without Cardi’s information.

In the court papers, Cardi’s group guarantees that Shaft took a 20 percent charge as her supervisor — yet then set up two organisations, WorldStar and KSR, through which they assert he persuaded Cardi to put more cash in his pocket, with one of the arrangements taking 50 percent of the sovereignties from her work with Atlantic Records.

Cardi’s suit guarantees that when the craftsman “addressed whether it was appropriate for her to get just 50 percent,” Shaft “misleadingly revealed to her this was a completely standard rate for a chronicle craftsman to get.” The suit calls the lead of Shaft and his organizations “a deplorable and unpardonable break of all trust and certainty set in them” via Cardi. Presently she looks for $15 million from him.
