In addition, the legal doc reads, “It appears that Plaintiff took advantage of an inexperienced young woman with considerable talent and charisma, but with a limited education who lacked experience in the age-old exploitative market of the entertainment industry.” She also says he “grossly exaggerates” his role as manager, although she admits he played a role in her development.
Cardi says that she signed a deal with Raphael‘s company without a lawyer which resulted in her manager making 20% of her earnings. She says he breached their contract after he failed to give her give her the proper payments owed, didn’t show monthly accounting as well as failing to find her an indepedent business manager.
Now, Cardi claims Raphael put one of his own companies as a middle party between herself and her label, Atlantic records. She asys the company collected half of her royalties and made her sign all her copyrights to the company. She’s now countersuing Raphael for “for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, accounting, unjust enrichment, and potentially other claims.”
