Cardi B has continued to take legal action in federal court against Tasha K, who owes the rapper $4M in damages.

The YouTuber’s bank account currently holds less than $100. 

Tasha K claims to earn $13k monthly from her content creation, with an additional $17K from her partner, leaving a surplus of $7k after expenses.

Cardi’s attorney, James Moon, has requested to be informed of all legal updates concerning the case. The Grammy Award-winning artist has also demanded that Tasha appear for an examination of her financial records. Currently, Tasha has not commented on the lawsuit but recently posted a photo of herself with a smile, hoping to “attract as much money” as possible to pay off her debt.
