Cardi B, winner of the Favorite Hip-Hop Song award, poses in the Press Room at the 2021 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on November 21, 2021 in Los Angeles, California.

Cardi B's attorneys are reportedly working on a legal response after blogger Tasha K defies a judge's order to remove defamatory videos about the rapper.

Cardi B took a massive W in her legal battle against vlogger Tasha K over defamatory videos about the rapper. However, Cardi's attorneys are still working tirelessly to get the videos in question scrubbed from the Internet, even after a judge ordered Tasha K to do so.

Journalist Dennis Byron shared an update on the case, revealing that Tasha K defied the court order to remove the videos about Cardi B on her page. Byron said Cardi's legal team is now looking into filing a new response to court that could potentially lead to potential prison time for the vlogger. "Breaking! The Blogger Lady aka #TashaK defies Federal Court Order by failing to remove defamatory statements about @iamcardib #CardiB Legal teams mounts a response. She is facing possible prison time and financial sanctions. This is a developing story," he tweeted.


The rumors that Tasha K was taken into custody were challenged by Byron shortly after. "Fake News Alert: Blogger Lady is not in jail YET despite what her "minion" aka employee is reporting on #TashaK IG live," he wrote.


Cardi B sued Tasha K in 2019 after the blogger shared videos on her YouTube page making several false allegations about Cardi B. A judge ruled in Cardi's favor, resulting in a near $3M judgment including $1.5M in punitive damages and another $1.3M in litigation expenses. In response, Tasha K stated that she "don't got it."
