The Bronx rapper settled the two-year legal battle that saw her ex-manager Klenford Raphael also known as Shaft, suing her for $10 million and Cardi B countersued for $30 million.
He sued her for $10 million in 2018 for breach of contract for ditching their agreement and signing with Quality Control Records. According to Raphael, he discovered the 28-year old superstar, and he was the reason behind her success. However, he said he was then cut from managing the artist, which affected the money he was owed for discovering her.
Court papers show that the lawsuit was dismissed with prejudice – bringing an end to the dispute as each party also agreed to pay their own costs- lawyers’ fees.
Cardi B reacted to the end of the legal fiasco as she tweeted an article about the settling of the dispute. She said, “feels good to be free.”
Page Six sources reported that Cardi B had sought out Shaft and that he took her in like a daughter. He is credited with the production of “Bodak Yellow,” Cardi’s mega-hit that launched her career globally on an upward trajectory.
