Cardi B, 25, decided to launch a counter-suit against Klenord Raphael, best known as Shaft, who tried to exploit her and tried to maintain control over her career and personal life.
Read on for more details on Cardi B counter-suit against her ex-manager…
CelebNMusic247.com has learned that Cardi B isn’t playing anymore with her ex-manager Shaft. She is grabbing him by the balls and putting him on BLAST for his SHADY contract.
Cardi B counter-suit against her ex-manager details below:
If you recall, Shaft filed a lawsuit against the Invasion of Privacy rapper on the day of her debut album release trying to BLAST her for her look, music and basically everything. He claimed he’d helped to develop her talent and reputation only for her to turn her back on him once she linked up with Offset.
Now, Cardi B is ready to DEAD those accusations and has instead claimed Shaft cut her off from other friends and advisers, before signing her up to a series of “highly one-sided” contracts.
Cardi was NOT trying to be the next Keshia.
Cardi even claimed Shaft attempted to sabotage her relationship with her now-husband, 26-year-old Migos rapper Offset. The “Drip” rappers counter-suit accuses Shaft of trying to dictate who she “should and should not see romantically.”
Her suit also points out that Shaft sought to take 20 percent in commission from her earnings and he even asked for half of the proceeds she earned from her Sony publishing deal. Since leaving Shaft’s management, Cardi’s career has been guided by Quality Control’s Solid Foundation, which is run by Kevin Lee and Pierre Thomas.
Both men were named in the original lawsuit, which was filed on April 26, and in the court documents, Shaft accused Offset of “steering Cardi B to QC to be managed by Thomas and Lee in all of her entertainment endeavors.”
After filing the complaint, a representative for Shaft explained:
Since discovering Cardi B in 2015, Shaft has played an integral role in developing her music career and public image. 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 is detailed in the complaint.
