All pending legal matters have been placed on hold until Tasha's bankruptcy has been resolved, according to reports.

Despite her best efforts, it seems as though Cardi B won't be getting her money from Tasha K anytime soon. Since winning her defamation lawsuit against the embattled YouTuber, the mother of two has been awaiting her nearly $4M payment. Naturally, Tasha has done everything possible to avoid admitting defeat. Since her motion for a new trial was rejected, the internet personality has no choice but to pay up. Unfortunately, she's come up empty-handed, causing Cardi to take drastic measures.

A few weeks back, the Grammy Award winner began collecting Tasha's YouTube and Google ad checks herself. This brought in a few thousand dollars to knock off the top. Her most recent payment was for just $640, proving that it's going to be quite some time before she's out of debt. Earlier this week, Tasha – born Latasha Kebe – filed for bankruptcy. Forms reveal she had no more than $95 in her Chase account at the time. As Radar Online reports, a judge has ordered that the New York-born artist stand down on efforts to collect her money while the woman who defamed her straightens out her situation.

Kebe filed for Chapter 11. This puts all "pending legal matters on hold" until the bankruptcy is dissolved, the presiding judge noted. Within the documents, she declared that her assets are worth an estimated $50 - $100K, while her liabilities come between $1 - $10M. Among her most valuable possessions are a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado, $6K worth of jewellery, and a few thousand dollars worth of clothing and purses, including two Louis Vuitton bags.

Aside from the large payment the rap diva is waiting for, Kebe also has $53K to pay on her car, an undetermined amount to the IRS, credit card bills amounting in thousands, and unpaid legal fees. How long do you think it'll take Tasha K to pay back Cardi B the $3M she's still owed? Let us know in the comments, and check back later for more hip-hop/pop culture news updates.
