Cardi B sues former manager who tried to enforce contacts

Cardi B

The complaint filed by Cardi B goes on to say, "The so-called "Recording Agreement" between Ms. Almanzar and KSR further increased the percentage of commissions on all of Ms. Almanzar's entertainment-related activities to an additional 25 percent (from the management agreement's previous 20 percent)".

Cardi also claims Shaft attempted to tell her who she should and shouldn't date, affecting her romance with husband Offset, the father of her unborn first child.

Heavily pregnant American female rapper Cardi B has filed a $15 million countersuit against estranged manager Klenord "Shaft" Raphael. The lawsuit alleges that Shaft was "a self-serving and controlling personal manager" who breached "contractual and fiduciary duties to Belcalis Almanzar, an immensely talented and trusting young artist".

Klenord Raphael, aka Shaft, filed suit against Cardi back in April, claiming he'd built up her career only to be left out in the cold once she hit the big time. Shaft allegedly tried to manage who she could or could not see. The suit, which came weeks after her hit album Invasion of Privacy was released, is for $10 million.

Cardi also claims that Shaft was "negligent" in record-keeping responsibilities; the suit reads that a proper accounting of funds was not kept.

In one instance, he said Offset contacted him late a year ago, saying he was a "snake" who had taken more than his fair share of Cardi B's earnings.

The deal, according to her, was one-sided as Shaft tried to bag around 50 percent from the Sony music publishing deal that Cardi B signed for.

Raphael blames both Offset and Patience Foster, who is Cardi B's makeup artist and publicist, for "turning" her against him, and feels that but for their influence, he would still be a part of Cardi's success. Leonard is listed as a co-writer on Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow".

A representative for Cardi B was not immediately available for comment.
