Cardi B stunned her fans after she revealed that she felt ‘suicidal’. The recent revelation comes after the rapper testified in her libel case against YouTuber Tasha Kebe on Jaunary 13. She told the federal jury about her suicidal thoughts after Kebe allegedly spread malicious lies about her.
Taking the witness stand in a Georgia court on the fourth day of the trial, the 29-year-old ‘Bodak Yellow’ singer revealed how the shocking claims, including Cardi B contracting sexual diseases, had taken a devastating toll on her. “I felt extremely suicidal,” Cardi B said, according to Billboard.
The rapper continued to point out that she felt “helpless” as Kebe continued to use her platform — which has amassed nearly 1 million followers — to spread the alleged falsehoods.
She also added she suffered “fatigue, anxiety, weight loss and migraines,” per the outlet. “Only an evil person could do that s***,” Cardi continued, before apologizing for using profanity.
The alleged libellous incidents happened soon after Cardi welcomed daughter Kulture with husband Offset. In an emotional plea the hitmaker explained how the entire setback affected her self-esteem.
“I felt defeated and depressed and I didn’t want to sleep with my husband,” she explained, according to TMZ . She even went so far as to say that she felt like she “didn’t deserve” Kulture at the time.
For the unversed, In the lawsuit filed in March 2019, Cardi claims Kebe attempted to financially capitalize on spreading lies about the entertainer, such as alleging Cardi was a prostitute, was unfaithful to Offset, used cocaine, and contracted herpes and HPV.
One of Kebe’s videos cited in the lawsuit includes a statement that Cardi B “f***** herself with beer bottles on f****** stripper stages.”
