Cardi B didn’t let a $5 million lawsuit get her down as she performed in Brooklyn for Power 105.1’s Powerhouse 2017 event. The talented rapper was in high spirits as she sang her hit songs while wearing a revealing bodysuit. It seemed like nothing could dampen her mood, even after hearing some negative news earlier in the day.
Cardi B didn’t let a recent $5 million lawsuit bring her down as she performed in Brooklyn on Thursday night. The lawsuit, which also involves her management team, revolves around the cover of her Gangsta B—h Music Vol. 1 mixtape from 2016. Male model Kevin Brophy claims that the rapper used an unauthorized image of his back, which features a distinctive tattoo of a tiger and a snake fighting. What’s more, the image of him was superimposed onto a suggestive photo of Cardi B, with her legs open and her hand on the back of his head, implying he was performing oral sex on her. Despite the legal trouble, Cardi B remains unfazed.
Exciting: The popular hip hop artist appeared fully immersed in the performance, passionately singing her top tracks during Power 105.1’s Powerhouse 2017 concert.
Brush it aside: Cardi was rocking a revealing bodysuit like a boss, unfazed by the negative news that had come her way earlier in the day.
Cardi B donned some risqué boots for her latest outing, proving that the sky’s the limit when it comes to fashion. In other news, a man named Brophy has claimed that his image was used without his consent on Cardi B’s album cover. According to court documents cited by an outlet, Brophy denies posing for the shot and was not aware of the album cover until a friend pointed out that he was pictured performing oral sex on the rapper. Despite never having met Cardi B or anyone associated with her, Brophy recognizes himself in the image due to his distinctive tattoo, which he has had for ten years.
Kevin Brophy, a male model, is taking legal action against Cardi B and her managers for using his image on the cover of her 2016 album Gangsta B—h Music Vol. 1 without his consent.
Enjoying herself: The energetic artist was captured recently putting on a show in her hometown of New York City.
The gifted performer was caught on camera playing at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago last Friday, causing a stir among fans and followers alike. Brophy, in particular, found himself in a tricky situation when his sons mentioned seeing the photo and inquired about the girl in it. Cardi B has had a tremendous year so far, thanks in large part to her chart-topping single Bodak Yellow, which dethroned Taylor Swift’s Look What You Made Me Do from the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 last month. Her achievement is even more noteworthy as she became the first female hip-hop artist to do so in almost two decades, since Lauryn Hill’s Doo Wop (That Thing) achieved the same feat in 1998.
The popular artist behind the hit song “Bodak Yellow” made a late-night appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live recently.
Displaying a spectacle: The stunning hip-hop artist donned a glittering ensemble and fluffy jacket for her appearance on the television network.
