"Shaft's last-second token suggestion that Ms. Almanzar have her own separate counsel review the Atlantic Recording Corporation deal, which was presented as a fait accompli, hardly excuses the blatant breach of trust and breaches of the duty of care, loyalty and candor which Counter-Defendants owed to Ms. Almanzar".
Cardi also claims Shaft tried to control her personal life, putting "barriers between her and people close to her".
As was previously reported by the Inquisitr, Cardi B was sued by Klenord "Shaft" Raphael, who claimed that he was commissioned to turn her into a "social media sensation" and take her from Instagram to superstardom. The countersuit lists Shaft received a 20% commission and tried to take advantage of her Sony music publishing deal by demanding that he received 50% of revenue.
The lawsuit filed by District Attorney Paul LiCalsi in NY stated Shaft used Cardi B.'s money for leisure such as "personal travel, entertainment and expenses" and his staff withdrew "loans" without the star's consent.
As the documents read, as Cardi became more successful, "so too did Shaft's greed".
Cardi B arrives for the 2018 Met Gala in a custom Moschino outfit and bedazzled headpiece.
In addition, the suit says he had her sign an exclusive personal management agreement with a company called "WorldStar Marketing Group", and gave her "the false impression that WorldStar had some connection or affiliation with the popular entertainment and music website, worldstarhiphop.com" but the company was simply an alter ego for him. Almanzar is Cardi B's real name.
Back in April, Shaft sued Cardi for allegedly cutting him off financially. Leonard is listed as a co-writer on Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow".
TMZ reports that the counter-suit accuses Raphael of trying to dictate who she "should and should not see romantically".
Raphael is seeking at least $10 million damages through the suit.
