Don’t you often wonder, how did Cardi B get so famous so quickly? If you love Cardi, like I love Cardi, you probably know she got her start as a stripper in New York City and also on the reality show “Love & Hip Hop” — but she must have had some guidance, right? Well, now that the artist is a self-proclaimed millionaire and a star in every sense of the word, some people from her past want to get what’s theres.
Page Six is reporting that Cardi’s former manager, who goes by the name of Shaft (not kidding about that name) says he discovered the rapper and basically made her who she is today. Shaft filed a lawsuit in Manhattan for a reportedly $10 million payout. The report says that Shaft took Cardi under his wing “as if she were his daughter.”
Cardi B is being sued by her ex manager for 10 million dollars. Allegedly, Cardi B dropped him after he made her a star. He also says that she defamed him by telling Offset and others that he robbed her. #theotherroom pic.twitter.com/osqf0amM9v

According to Page Six, a rep for Shaft said: “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.”
Why does it always seem when stars make it big, there’s always someone that wants a paycheck? Cardi is keeping her mouth shut on this lawsuit — as of now anyway — and you know if she had something to say about the topic she would. She’s probably being advised wisely to stay quiet about the lawsuit.
Either way, we have a hard time believing Shaft is going to get that $10 million.
