The "Bartier Cardi" rapper, 25, is being sued for $10 million by Klenord "Shaft" Raphael, who claims the Bronx native gave him the shaft and froze him out of her budding career after achieving success, according to multiple outlets.

"Since discovering Cardi B in 2015, Shaft has played an integral role in developing her music career and public image," the manager's rep said in a statement. "While he is proud of their successful collaborations as she evolved from Instagram influencer to music megastar, Shaft is disappointed by her actions to freeze him out of her career, which are detailed in the complaint. Shaft is confident that his lawsuit will validate his conduct and substantiate his legal claims."

Cardi, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, made the switch from Shaft's guidance over to Solid Foundation in March. She joined fiancé Offset of the rap trio Migos at her new management, as well as rappers like Lil Yachty.

In the complaint, Raphael reportedly claims credit for Cardi's breakout role on the VH1 series "Love & Hip-Hop: New York," where she starred for two seasons from 2015 to 2017.

Raphael also says it's because of him and his team of writers she was able to record "Bodak Yellow," her debut single that hit No. 1 in September, according to TMZ.

Offset — who is expecting a baby with Cardi this summer — also reportedly gets a shout-out in the complaint, as Raphael claims Cardi defamed him by telling her fiancé that Raphael had robbed her.
