Cardi B‘is a mother of 2 children now… so she asks the judge to postpone the trial on her’ Gangsta Bitch ‘cover, for which she was prosecuted almost 4 years ago.
If you don’t remember… the album cover of Cardi’s first mixtape – “Gangsta Bitch Music Vol. 1 ”- features the rapper seated, drinking a beer, while a man with an elaborate back tattoo puts his head between his legs.
Kévin Brophy pursued for the image, claiming it’s 100% him in the image, but he never posed for the photo or gave Cardi permission to use his image. He also claimed the ordeal had ruined his life and wanted at least $ 5 million in damages.
The trial was finally scheduled for next month, but Cardi filed new legal documents – obtained by TMZ – asking for a delay because she just has given birth to his son on September 4.
According to the docs… Cardi doesn’t think she should have to travel from the east coast to Southern California next month, as she needs to be with her newborn for obvious reasons.
She also discusses the risks of COVID associated with travel and extended stays in public places, such as airports, hotels and the courthouse. She therefore asks the court to suspend the trial for at least 75 days.
The judge hasn’t made a decision yet… but Brophy may have to wait a little longer for his day in court.
