The model who filed the $5 million lawsuit claims his tattoos were photoshopped on the cover of GBM1.
Back in October of last year, Cardi B was facing a hefty lawsuit over some art that was allegedly stolen for the cover of her Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 1 mixtape. The album cover shows a man with prominent back tattoos performing oral sex on Cardi as she sips from a bottle of beer. A model sued the blossoming rapper last year after claiming that his back tattoos were photoshopped into the album cover. Kevin Brophy, the man filing the documents, is asking for $5 million dollars as he never consented to his image being used in such a sexual nature, affirming that he did not pose for the photo or sign off on anything.
There seems to be a catch in the lawsuit though. Cardi B and her legal team are claiming that the man in the photo is a "young, dark-skinned male" while the plaintiff is a middle-aged Caucasian man. While the tats are strikingly similar upon comparison, Cardi is hoping that one element of the ink leads to her winning the case. TMZ notes that the man suing has a neck tattoo that reads "Born To Lose" on his neck, while Cardi's model does not have any neck tattoos.
If it were up to us, the case could go either way. The tattoos are incredibly alike, and with that much detail, it's hard to believe that two people in the world share the same gigantic back tattoo. Check out the photos here and judge for yourself.
