Cardi B is accused of claiming she couldn’t make a court trial because she had just given birth, only to flew out to Paris Fashion Week weeks later.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, the man suing Cardi for $5 million says the singer mislead the court under oath and wants immediate action taken.
The cover featured Cardi sitting in the back of a limo while a heavily tattooed man performs oral sex on her.
Brophy says the man in the photo is him and he was never asked for permission. He is suing for more than $5 million. Cardi calls the case nothing more than a shakedown and denies wrongdoing. Recently, the judge in the case pushed the trial date from October 26 until February 1, 2022.
The decision to move the date came after Cardi pleaded for it to be postponed. In her motion, Cardi said she welcomed a baby boy on September 4 and was advised not to travel.
Her lawyer wrote, “For medical reasons, it is inadvisable for her to travel from her present residence on the East Coast to Southern California."
"Being in the immediate post-natal period and nursing her newborn child, it would be an unreasonable imposition upon her to require her to actively be present for and participate in pretrial preparation and attendance at the trial itself,” Cardi’s attorney claimed.
Now, Brophy is back in court accusing Cardi of making misleading statements under oath to the court.
He claims Cardi previously claimed she “did not feel it would be fair if she was required to travel from the New York area to California following the birth of her son in early September because she was concerned about her health during her post-natal period, and because of the risk of Covid-19 cautioned the need for her to stay away from public places, like airports and hotels.”
Brophy says despite her sworn declaration, two weeks later, Cardi appeared in Paris, France to attend Paris Fashion Week festivities and a variety of highly public events.
He says, Cardi’s conduct “contradicts her sworn declaration and her statements to the court” were misleading. His motion adds, “There is no reasonable explanation for” Cardi to “suggest that she could not, and would not, leave New York because she needed to be with her children and that it was not safe to be in public places, only for her to appear two weeks later in Paris.”
Brophy is demanding the trial date be immediately pushed up to December and Cardi be ordered to pay $8,130 in sanctions.
