Cardi B Is Counter-Suing Her Former Manager for $15 Million

"Shaft's last-second token suggestion that Ms. Almanzar have her own separate counsel review the Atlantic Recording Corporation deal, which was presented as a fait accompli, hardly excuses the blatant breach of trust and breaches of the duty of care, loyalty and candor which Counter-Defendants owed to Ms. Almanzar".

While Cardi B acknowledges having a contract with Shaft, her lawsuit argues that it was breached after WorldStar, Shaft's company, failed to provide some of the services agreed on, such as an independent business manager and certain payments to her.

Legal tussle: Cardi B, 25, said her former manager Shaft was controlling of both her finances and personal life - including her relationship with now-husband Offset - in a $15 million countersuit to the $10 million lawsuit he filed in April.

The Bodak Yellow performer said that Shaft exploited her on the numbers end of the business, as he sought to take not only a 20 percent commission, but asked for half of the proceeds she earned off of her Sony publishing contract. The control extended to who she chose to date.

Shaft has yet to respond publicly to Cardi's latest move.

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

He attempted "to control her personal life, telling her who she should and should not see romantically".

Cardi B claims her ex-manager was too intrusive. "But as is sometimes the case with artists who obtain a measurable level of success, Cardi B has reneged on valid and binding agreements in an effort to cause Plaintiffs to forfeit their substantial rights and benefits in her entertainment career and to enrich herself and others who played no role in developing her career", attorneys representing Raphael wrote in the civil complaint.

Cardi B is now one of the hottest hip-hop artists with the success of her smash hit "Bodak Yellow" past year.
