It’s been quite the whirlwind online between Cardi B and blogger Tasha K.
Last we heard according to Billboard, Cardi B won an almost $4 million defamation verdict against a gossip blogger who made salacious claims about drug use, STDs, and prostitution, the superstar rapper tweeted “imma come for everything” along with the acronym BBHMM – “bitch better have my money.”
Eight months later, the star’s attorneys are now pushing to legally make sure she actually has it.
With the blogger Tasha K currently appealing the verdict, Cardi’s lawyers asked a federal judge Friday to either make her pay up immediately or pay a so-called supersedeas bond covering the entire amount.
If Tasha (real name Latasha Kebe) loses her appeal, that money will then be automatically handed to Cardi.
Citing Tasha’s own public statements, Cardi’s attorneys said they were worried Tasha might use the delay caused by the appeal to avoid paying.
“This is more than a hypothetical concern in this case,” attorney Lisa F. Moore and Cardi’s other lawyers wrote Friday. “During the litigation, Kebe bragged publicly that she had taken steps to insulate herself from a judgment. And there have been recent online reports that Kebe has moved from Georgia to avoid enforcement of the judgment.”
Rumor has it that Tasha K has fled to Africa to avoid paying the money owed.
In an Instagram post, the Blogger admits that life in Africa is exactly what she needed.

Prior to the alleged move to Africa, Kebe may have downsized her ATL home and moved to an apartment in Florida.
According to Sandra Rose, Florida is a “safe space for debtors who lose large judgments.” The state “makes life difficult for debt collectors” and Florida’s homestead exemption “prevents a judgment from becoming a lien on a Florida debtor’s primary residence.”
Thouh Tasha K has discussed expanding her business in Africa, people are still skeptical about her move there.
