Cardi B is preparing for motherhood by going after her former manager for trying to control her life.

What's more, Cardi even claimed Raphael attempted to sabotage her relationship with her now-husband, 26-year-old Migos rapper Offset.

Heavily pregnant American female rapper Cardi B has filed a $15 million countersuit against estranged manager Klenord "Shaft" Raphael.

Raphael also claims that he was defamed by the Love and Hip-Hop star, and was cut off, financially, after she "made it big" as a result of the hit VH1 show. The lawsuit alleges that Shaft was "a self-serving and controlling personal manager" who breached "contractual and fiduciary duties to Belcalis Almanzar, an immensely talented and trusting young artist".

In the suit, according to TMZ, Cardi B said that Shaft arranged a management deal that was way too beneficial to him, at her own expense.

Wickstead should also feel relieved that Markle wore her hair down, in loose waves, after criticising her wedding hairstyle, too. Meghan beamed as she exited the vehicle , wearing her brunette locks in a tight bun and keeping make-up to a minimum.

And it was for this reason the former manager sued her and demanded no less than $10 million in damages.

"The so-called "Recording Agreement" between [Cardi B] and KSR further increased the percentage of commissions on all of Ms. Almanzar's entertainment-related activities to an additional 25% (from the management agreement's previous 20%)".

The plaintiff attorneys did not immediately respond to a Law&Crime request for comment about the counterclaim Thursday afternoon.

Cardi B, who filed a countersuit on Thursday, is looking to have management and recording agreements declared void.

The complaint continues to state that in 2014, Cardi B hired Shaft to act as her personal manager and book her appearances at dance clubs as a means of developing her growing musical career. Leonard is listed as a co-writer on Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow". In the suit, she said that bled over into her dating life, with Shaft telling her "who she should and should not see romantically". Her latest album "Invasion of Privacy" was released earlier this month and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 200.
