(AllHipHop News) Cardi B's ex-manager has urged a judge to throw out the countersuit the rapper filed against him.
Klenord Raphael, also known as Shaft, initially sued Cardi for $10 million in April, accusing the former stripper of allegedly turning her back on him after he put her on the path to fame. He insisted he played a key role in helping her score her breakthrough hit "Bodak Yellow," only for Cardi to accuse him of stealing from her.
In July, the MC fired back by launching a countersuit for more than $15 million, slamming Raphael for allegedly trying to control every aspect of her life, while also declaring the management deals he had her sign were too one-sided and "grossly unfair."
Raphael is now requesting the lawsuit be dismissed, alleging Cardi is unable to sue him, because of her own acts, omissions or unlawful conduct, which are not detailed.
He also claims she breached their contract because she did not give him ample time to correct any issues between them.
But Raphael wants his original lawsuit to continue.
