Cardi B countersues former manager

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

The lawsuit also names as defendants current managers Kevin "Coach K" Lee and Pierre "Pee" Thomas of Quality Control Management. The documents say that Raphael originally agreed to get 20 per cent commission but after Cardi got a publishing deal with Sony music, he demanded 50 per cent.

Cardi B has gone legal in a dispute with her former manager Klenord Raphael, aka Shaft. The lawsuit alleges that Shaft was "a self-serving and controlling personal manager" who breached "contractual and fiduciary duties to Belcalis Almanzar, an immensely talented and trusting young artist".

The complaint, which can be read in full here, states: "Ms. Almanzar entrusted Shaft and his related entities with many aspects of her professional and business affairs and that trust was abused". For these deals Shaft used an attorney who purported to act for both KSR and Ms. Almanzar simultaneously. When they finally did turn over some records, it showed "an employee of KSR had taken $15,000, which was apparently booked as a 'loan'".

These allegations come with a pretty hefty claim for damages: more than $15 million.

Cardi B is taking her ex-manager Klenord "Shaft" Raphael to court.

'Since discovering Cardi B in 2015, Shaft has played an integral role in developing her music career and public image, ' the agent's rep said in a statement in the wake of the suit.

Cardi B, who filed a countersuit on Thursday, is looking to have management and recording agreements declared void.

He continued: 'While he is proud of their successful collaborations as she evolved from Instagram influencer to music megastar, Shaft is disappointed by her actions to freeze him out of her career, which are detailed in the complaint'.

Last week, Cardi B made American chart history by becoming the first female rapper to score two Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping singles, when "I Like It" followed her breakout hit "Bodak Yellow" to Number 1.
