Cardi B subpoenas Tasha K’s hubby, demands list of all financial assets

Cardi B is doing everything she can to make sure that Tasha K pays her what she owes, no matter the cost — and she’s now dragged the disgraced blogger’s husband into the fight.

Court documents obtained by HipHopDX reveal that the “Bodak Yellow” rapper issued what’s known as a subpoena duces tecum to Cheickna Kebe, Tasha K’s husband, on Tuesday (June 18).

This subpoena permits Cardi — through her attorneys — to examine each and every asset that the couple has in their name, and confirms that the examination will take place on August 7 in Miami, FL. The examination will also be recorded on video, and entered as part of Tasha K’s bankruptcy filing with the court back in May.

“The examination may continue from day to day until completed,” reads the order, which suggests that the examination will take more than one day to complete. “If the examinee receives this notice less than 14 days prior to the scheduled examination date, the examination will be rescheduled upon timely request to a mutually agreeable time.”

Last month, Cardi B was ordered to halt her collection efforts against Tasha K due to the latter’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.

The rapper (real name Belcalis Almanzar) was one of 30 debtors notified about the Unwine with Tasha K (real name Latasha Kebe) filing. Cardi B was notified of the filing through her attorney, Lisa Moore. Other parties that were notified of the filing included the IRS, the Broward County Tax Collector, the Florida Department of Revenue, and Bank of America.

The notification makes clear that all collection efforts by all parties must be halted as of June 2 while the courts sort out Tasha K’s finances.

“The filing of the case imposed an automatic stay against most collection activities,” read the order. “This means that creditors generally may not take action to collect debts from the debtors or the debtors’ property. For example, while the stay is in effect, creditors cannot sue, garnish wages, assert a deficiency, repossess property, or otherwise try to collect from the debtors.”

The order continues: “Creditors cannot demand repayment from debtors by mail, phone, or otherwise. Creditors who violate the stay can be required to pay actual and punitive damages and attorney’s fees. Under certain circumstances, the stay may be limited to 30 days or not exist at all, although debtors can ask the court to extend or impose a stay.”

However, this subpoena duces tecum doesn’t violate that order, because it was issued pursuant to Federal Bankruptcy Rule 2004.

This rule states that “the examination of an entity under this rule or of the debtor under §343 of the Code may relate only to the acts, conduct, or property or to the liabilities and financial condition of the debtor, or to any matter which may affect the administration of the debtor’s estate, or to the debtor’s right to a discharge,” according to the Cornell University School of Law.
