*Cardi B has been ordered to halt attempts to collect on millions owed to her by blogger Tasha K as part of a defamation suit the rapper won earlier this year.
As a result of Tasha K’s recent bankruptcy filing, a Georgia judge ordered Cardi to cease her collection efforts, according to court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com. Tasha’s pending legal matters were placed on hold until the Chapter 11 case was resolved, the judge declared.
Cardi sued the popular YouTuber [real name: Latasha Kebe] after she created videos accusing the hip-hop star of being a drug-addicted former prostitute with an STD.
Cardi testified during the trial that she suffered extreme emotional distress and her marriage to Offset was affected. We reported previously that a jury in Georgia ultimately found Tasha K liable on four counts and awarded Cardi B $4.05 million in damages.

Cardi has so far been able to collect thousands from third parties but last month, Tasha filed for bankruptcy in Florida Court so the “WAP” rapper must pause collection attempts.
Here’s more from RadarOnline:
Tasha listed her assets in the $50k-$100k range while her liabilities total between $1 million to $10 million. Tasha’s largest debt was the $3 million owed to Cardi. The other liabilities included $53k owed on her car, an undetermined amount to the IRS, thousands in credit card bills and a substantial amount of unpaid legal fees.
The blogger pulls in around $13k per month with her partner bringing in $17k per month for a grand total of $30k. She said their monthly expenses total $22k which leaves them with a $7k surplus.
According to court documents, Tasha earned $134k in 2022 and $156k in 2021.
