"While Plaintiff was pregnant, on or around April 13, 2018, Kebe published a video where Kebe stated that as a result of Plaintiff's actions, Plaintiff's then-unborn child may have intellectual disabilities," the documents state about the YouTube vlogger. The lawsuit also states that Starmarie made "false, malicious, and defamatory statements" about the rapper on Instagram Live.

"In the Jones video, Jones made the false, malicious, and defamatory statement that '[Plaintiff] got herpes,'" the lawsuit states, adding that she said that Cardi "took molly and cocaine." The statement continued: "Jones also falsely stated that Plaintiff was engaging in prostitution. Specifically, she stated, referring to Plaintiff, 'I guess they were supposed to have sex, exchange sex for money.'"

Cardi denied all claims regarding prostitution, drug use, and having herpes. The suit also states that the women were given the opportunity to retract their statements, but after they refused to do so, Cardi proceeded with taking legal action and wants the videos removed from the web.
