A federal judge in Cardi B's defamation lawsuit against vlogger Tasha K has requested the rap star's STD test results. Cardi B is currently suing Tasha over claims that she had herpes, abused drugs, and was a prostitute in the past.
On Monday, Judge William M. Ray II ordered UCLA's Center for Women’s Pelvic Health to disclose "any and all medical records within your possession related solely to the testing for Herpes and HPV [human papillomavirus]" for Cardi B. The test results are critical in determining whether the "Bodak Yellow" rapper will win her defamation lawsuit.
Tasha K (real name Latasha Kebe) and her attorneys requested the test results, but Cardi's lawyer argued that the same tests were already submitted.
"The medical records concerning the HPV and herpes tests were previously produced subject to a protective order and in support of my client's claims," said Lisa F. Moore.
Cardi B and Tasha K's legal dispute has carried on for over two years since Cardi sued Tasha for $75,000 over the vlogger's allegations. Tasha K had also hinted at the rapper's daughter, who was unborn at the time, having disabilities as a result of Cardi's alleged drug use. Cardi B denied the allegations and claims she offered the vlogger time to retract her statements before launching her lawsuit.
Tasha K tried countersuing Cardi B for $3 million and claimed the rapper sent members of the Bloods to threaten her. However, the countersuit was tossed out.
The trial for the lawsuit is set to begin on Jan. 5, 2022.
