Cardi B doesn’t need to take a BuzzFeed quiz to realize that if she were a Powerpuff Girl, she’d be Buttercup. (By the way, I searched to see if there’s an actual “Which Powerpuff Girl Are You?” BuzzFeed quiz, and you’re damn Skippy peanut butter, there is.)


But, we didn’t find out this revelation during an Instagram Live or a haphazard tweet, it was during the artist’s deposition.

Yes, you read that right.

According to Yahoo, Cardi (real name Belcalis Almanzar) is on the other end of a $5 million lawsuit with a man named Kelvin Michael Brophy, Jr., who claims she used a photo of his tattoo on her Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 1 mixtape without his permission.

Yahoo reports the following:

According to the transcript of the deposition obtained by The Blast, Cardi was grilled about her business in California, the use of the photo on her mixtape, and various other topics relating to her career.

Brophy’s lawyer asked Cardi about how often she comes to California on an annual basis. She said “I go there a lot.” He pressed asking “For what reason?” to which she said “Work reasons.”

He said, “Yes. Why?” and the singer said, “Because I’m Cardi B.”

And therein lies where the real story begins, my friends.

Are you not entertained?!

We have learned that not only is Cardi B deemed Buttercup, but she is also a gangsta, good girl and a lion. Oh my!


Cardi also discredited Brophy, telling his lawyers, “Your client is claiming that he’s distressed. Where is the proof of him being distressed? How is your client now claiming that I used his likeness for my thing? Nobody knows him. Nobody knows what his face looks like. How can you be distressed? How can I ruin your life? It doesn’t make sense to me. This man works in a damn fucking surf shop. You’re not a model. You haven’t, like, gone to no damn psychiatrist.”

In an attempt to conclude proceedings and continue with her regularly scheduled money moves, Cardi ended with, “I got real lawsuits with real shit, and I got to deal with this bullshit. This is four hours long taking away from my time, my job, my motherhood.”


Mic dropped. And so, once again the (previously boring) day is saved, thanks to Cardi B.

He really asked for $5million in damages?
