Cousins! YouTuber Tasha K has announced that she has lost her appeal to Cardi B within a $4 million dollar defamation lawsuit!
According to Billboard Magazine, a five page decision was issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, rejecting Tasha’s appeal. It has been stated that she argued the previously issued verdict was due to a “very lopsided presentation of evidence to the jury.”
As we previously reported the Bronx, New York native sued the ‘Unwine’ host after she repeatedly posted videos paired with allegations , that Cardi was a prostitute who abused drugs and had contracted sexually transmitted diseases.
The overall trial lasted a little less than two weeks as the court ruled Tasha liable on 3 separate claims ordering her to pay Cardi $1.25 million in general damages and $250k for medical expenses, reported TMZ.
Tasha took to Twitter as well as Instagram earlier today to issue an apology to both Cardi and her team while noting an instance like this will never happen again.
“ Damn Winos! @ We lost the appeal…against #CardiB sad day.. but I’m gonna be alright… I appreciate all your love & support. Throughout this fight. Today we throw in the white flag.. what happened will never happen again… To Cardi & Her team, I apologize sincere. We Live, & Learn…./I see y’all Wednesday on YouTube,” Tasha wrote.
She followed up in an additional tweet warning her supporters to be aware of donation scams, “Please Do NOT Donate to Any GoFundMe’s in my name at all! If you get scammed, it ain’t on me! Just FYI”.
But it wasn’t long before she came up with a hashtag to match her ordeal as she wrote, “ TashaKGetsAJOB😫🥂🏃🏿♂️I will let y’all what Part-Time gig I get so I can pay off this damn debt. #iaintgotit but I’m gonna get it. 🏃🏿♂️🏃🏿♂️ @mcdonalds @wendys @burgerking any positions available..😫 i will do anything”
Following news of Tasha’s appeal being rejected with the court’s decision weighing in Cardi’s favor, online users as well as social media influencer and artist Rolling Ray shared their views.“Tasha K let fame & fake news get to her head all while trying to maintain a living off of YouTube & sponsorships! Aka Promo’s! She never had the legal logistics set up correctly as most bloggers does.”
He continued, “She just ran her mouth. Cardi B moved fast & basically even if Tasha doesn’t have the “money” to pay her she’ll lose her house, & if she’s married her husband will lose everything also. & to top it all off Tasha K will be denied apartment building applications & credit cards.”
“So she’ll most likely have to depend on family or a fake name to get her what she needs. It’s a sad day in history for Tasha K. Congratulations @iamcardib”
