AceShowbiz - Cardi B and her management are being sued for $5 million by the guy in her "Gangsta B***h Music Vol. 1" mixtape cover. A guy named Kevin Brophy has claimed that the "Bodak Yellow" rapper used his image for her mixtape cover without his permission.
The mixtape cover shows Cardi B sitting on the backseat of a car while enjoying beer and oral sex from a male model, who has a huge tiger tattoo on his back. TMZ reported that Kevin was absolutely sure that the guy in the cover is him, as he's had the specific tattoo for 10 years.
Kevin said that he only found out about the cover when one of his friends told him about it, saying that he was "cunnilinging [sic] this rapper called Cardi B." He also revealed that his toddler son had seen the cover and asked what his father was doing with the woman, adding that it was awkward.
Cardi B has not responded to the lawsuit.
In other news, Cardi is reportedly working on a collaboration with Beyonce Knowles as the 25-year-old rapper's sound engineer, Ashby, shared on Instagram Stories a picture of the collaborative song file. However, it seems like the R&B diva prefers to keep it a secret. The sound engineer then took to social media to issue an apology to Beyonce and all her fans.
"Public apology to Beyonce and all her fans unfortunately 'hotnewhip-hop' [invaded] my privacy," Ashby wrote. "In everything that I post it's been nothing but [encouragement] to my small IG following that's trying to grind like me in this tough business."
He continued by saying that he learned his lesson and would never do it again in the future. "I cannot turn back the hands of time so at least this a life lesson I've learned on my behalf and all I can do is move forward," he added.
