Cardi B has won her ongoing legal battle with Tasha K, with a judge ordering a blogger to take down posts about the rapper.

Cardi B won another round in her legal battle with Tasha K on Monday, when a federal judge in Atlanta ordered the YouTube blogger to take down clips and social media posts that a jury found ‘false and defamatory’ in January.

According to Rolling Stone, the judge ordered Tasha K, 40, to remove the posts within five days.

According to the publication, the court ordered the blogger, whose actual name is Latasha Kebe, not to post or repost any allegations linking Cardi B, 29, to drug usage, prostitution, marital adultery, or sexually transmitted diseases.

The New York native, whose full name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, won a $4 million defamation action against Tasha K in federal court in Georgia on January 24.

According to her legal team, she filed the injunction last month over the posts about ‘harmful and vile lies’ that remained online after the verdict.

In court records, Cardi B’s legal team stated that “not all of the videos and posts containing the defamatory allegations have been removed from defendants’ social media accounts” following the January ruling.

Tasha K was a ‘continuous ongoing threat’ against Cardi B, according to her lawyers, after she told the court in January that she wouldn’t stop publishing derogatory stuff about her unless she was legally forced to.

‘Despite the overwhelming evidence entered at trial and a unanimous jury verdict against (Kebe and her company) on all of plaintiff’s claims, they continue to insinuate that the defamatory statements are true,’ the I Like It singer’s legal team said, citing a January 26 tweet from Tasha K that stated, ‘No LIES were told on anyone.’

Tasha K was forced to pay Cardi B $1.5 million in damages, $1.25 million in punitive penalties, and more than $1 million in legal fees after a jury found her postings against the singer were made with “actual malice.”

Tasha K then turned to YouTube to announce that she would be appealing the decision; if she is successful, she will be able to petition the court to have the injunction against the posts lifted.
