Cardi B was not having it during a heated deposition, part of a $5 million legal battle, and called out a lawyer for wasting hours of her time when she could be with Kulture.
The singer is involved in a lawsuit with a man named Kevin Michael Brophy Jr., who accuses her of using a photo of his tattoo on her mixtape cover without permission.
A judge recently ruled the singer’s deposition was to be made public and the transcript did not disappoint. The deposition happened on April 19 in New York and lasted for several hours.
According to the transcript of the deposition obtained by The Blast, Cardi was grilled about her business in California, the use of the photo on her mixtape, and various other topics relating to her career.
Brophy’s lawyer asked Cardi about how often she comes to California on an annual basis. She said “I go there a lot.” He pressed asking “For what reason?” to which she said “Work reasons”. He said, “Yes. Why?” and the singer said, “Because I’m Cardi B.”
When questioned about the mixtape tattoo photo being used, Cardi said, “I never really cared to, like see, because I didn’t give a fuck. I cared for me, and it was, like, all about me … I didn’t give a fuck about this tattoo. I didn’t give a fuck about none of that shit. So, when it comes to that, you need to go to the photographer, or whoever edited this shit, because that’s who did it — clearly.”
The lawyer asked Cardi about the image she was trying to put out there with the album cover. She responded, “I mean I am I am a gangster. Like, I feel like I am a gangster, like I’m a gangsta. You know? I’m a stand-up girl. You know what I’m saying.”
