Cardi B earned herself a legal win just before Christmas. According to court documents obtained by AllHipHop, the Grammy Award-winner settled a two-year, $30 million lawsuit with her former manager Klenord “Shaft” Raphael on Thursday (December 24).
Raphael claimed he discovered Cardi in 2015, setting off her path from Instagram personality to Love & Hip Hop cast member to global superstar.
In 2018, Raphael filed a $10 million breach of contract lawsuit against Cardi, claiming the Invasion Of Privacy rapper broke the deal she had with him and opted to sign with Quality Control. Cardi then filed a $15 million countersuit, prompting the settlement.
“This action, including all claims and counterclaims, is hereby dismissed in its entirety with prejudice against all parties,” court docs state. “The parties have further agreed that all parties to this action shall bear their own costs and attorney’s fees.”
