Cardi B is being sued for using a male model's sexy photo, allegedly without his consent. According to TMZ, Kevin Brophy is not happy that his shirtless body appears on the rapper's Gangsta Bitch Music Vol. 1 project in a pose that appears to be of him performing oral sex on her.
Brophy claims that he didn't even know about the album artwork, which was released in 2016, until a friend pointed out that he was "cunnilinging [sic] this rapper called Cardi B." Based on the back tattoos, Brophy is convinced the photo is of him and says that he's had the tattoos for several years.
In court docs obtained by TMZ, the artwork has also affected Brophy's personal life. Apparently, his son—who is in pre-school—asked him what he was doing in the photo and who is the woman. The son keeps bringing up the topic.
Brophy maintains that he's never met the Bronx rapper or spoken to her or her representatives. He's suing the hit rapper for at least $5 million.
Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow" has been the breakthrough hit of the year. The song hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. This is a monumental moment, as it marks the second time in history that a female rapper has topped the charts unaccompanied. The former stripper-turned-Love & Hip Hop reality star-turned rapper has said of her success: ""It was a lovely surprise," Cardi told Billboard. "It was kinda like a close race. It was like when Obama was running for president. I'm like, 'Ahhhhh!'"
