The Invasion of Privacy rapper claims giving birth to a newborn son and COVID prohibits her from traveling for mixtape cover trial.
Do you remember the time where Cardi B was a rising Hip-Hop star on Love And Hip-Hop? Before the Bronx native blew up with “Bodak Yellow” she dropped her first mixtape Gangsta B*tch Music Vol. 1. This mixtape pushed Cardi into the rap-sphere, but also it would cause the rapper to face trial over the cover art.
The debut mixtape featured very lustful cover art that included a man with detailed back tattoos. Once the project was released, Cardi soon was hit with a lawsuit by Kevin Brophy, claiming those back tattoos are his in the image, but that’s not him posing with the rapper or permitting Cardi to use his likeness.
According to Uproxx, in the lawsuit, Brophy claims the cover art “ruined his life” and cost him 5 million in damages! Now the trial was slated to start next month despite the lawsuit filed four years ago. But TMZ reports that Cardi is trying to lag it even further. Chile…
In court documents, Cardi insists that the birth of her second child prevents her from traveling from the east coast to southern California for the court date. Which is very reasonable because she just gave birth, right? Also, Cardi is concerned about COVID travel risks and prefers not to spend extended time in public areas such as hotels, airports, and the courthouse.
Allegedly, Cardi asked the judge to delay the trial for at least 75 days because of her reasons.
