Cardi B’s Former Manager Allegedly Robbed Her Blind and Now He’s Suing Her for $10 Million

Cardi B’s former manager is a complicated man, but no one understands him but his woman. That’s right, it’s Shaft and he’s suing Cardi B for $10 million after she fired him for allegedly robbing her blind. See, she says he was embezzling funds from her on top of the 20% cut he was taking as her manager. TMZ said the way the alleged embezzlement scheme worked was “if Cardi got a gig that paid $100,000, Shaft would tell her she was making $50k and allegedly pocket the balance.”

I mean, that’s a good reason to fire someone. The 20% cut is probably a good reason as well, Cardi can get someone to take a much smaller cut now I’m sure. Also, I heard firing your manager is a thing that’s going around now.

But Shaft isn’t taking being fired lying down (Shaft). He’s a cat who won’t cop out when there’s danger all about (John Shaft). So he’s suing Cardi B for $10 million for breach of contract. You do generally need a cause to fire your manager even if you did agree to overpay them. They’re not an at-will employee. Pretty much any time a singer or band fires a manager there’s a lawsuit and countersuit.

But who is in the right here? Who is the man that would risk his neck for his brother, man? The courts will decide that in a long, drawn-out process. If Cardi B is right and Shaft was embezzling from her (shut your mouth), then things will probably go her way. I just hope things work out better for her with her new manager, Dolemite.
