Cardi B counter-sues her ex-manager for $15 million

Cardi B accuses ex-manager of manipulating her money trying to control her in $15 million countersuit

The legal battle between Cardi B and her former manager is heating up.

What's more, Cardi even claimed Raphael attempted to sabotage her relationship with her now-husband, 26-year-old Migos rapper Offset.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Almanzar's lawsuit states in a rather long sentence that: "This case arises out of the deceitful and disloyal conduct of a self-serving and controlling personal manager, counter-defendant Klenord "Shaft" Raphael, and his entities through which he does business, WorldStar and KSR, who together, among other things, breached their contractual and fiduciary duties to counter-plaintiff Belcalis Almanzar, an immensely talented and trusting young artist".

Cardi's suit claims that when the artist "questioned whether it was proper for her to receive only 50 percent", Shaft "deceitfully told her that this was an absolutely standard percentage for a recording artist to receive".

Raphael previously claimed he taught the star everything she knows about entertainment and helped her make the step up from being a stripping Instagram wannabe. The control extended to who she chose to date.

Cardi B has filed a counter suit against her former manager who took her to court in April.


And it was for this reason the former manager sued her and demanded no less than $10 million in damages.

"Shaft conceived, arranged and orchestrated Cardi B's rise to become the biggest music sensation on the planet".

Since discovering Cardi B in 2015, Shaft has played an integral role in developing her music career and public image.

Cardi filed her countersuit Thursday in federal court, and in the docs she says Shaft set up a management deal with her that she considers far too one-sided. Almanzar is Cardi B's real name.

A representative for Cardi B was not immediately available for comment.

The counter-suit claims that Leonard put "barriers between [Cardi] and people close to her in an effort to maintain complete control over her" and dictated "who she should and should not see romantically". Her latest album "Invasion of Privacy" was released earlier this month and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 200.
