Did Cardi B shaft her former manager??

According to Variety, new court docs have been filed on behalf of the rapper’s ex-rep Klenord “Shaft” Raphael, whom she left late last month for Solid Foundation. As of late March, the expecting artist is now repped by the Quality Control management team led by Kevin “Coach K” Lee and Pierre “Pee” Thomas (both are listed in the suit as well).

Raphael and his company KSR are now “demanding judgment” against Offset‘s love “in an amount to be determined at trial, but not less than $10,000,000.” Oh snap!

Shaft’s team said in a statement that he orchestrated Cardi’s career and relationship with VH1‘s Love & Hip Hop: New York:

“Since discovering Cardi B in 2015, Shaft has played an integral role in developing her music career and public image. While he is proud of their successful collaborations as she evolved from Instagram influencer to music megastar, Shaft is disappointed by her actions to freeze him out of her career, which are detailed in the complaint. Shaft is confident that his lawsuit will validate his conduct and substantiate his legal claims.”

Oof. Hopefully nothing shady is going on here!
