Cardi B is not letting her pregnancy stop her from taking care of business.

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

Cardi B's former manager, Klenord "Shaft" Raphael, filed a $10 million lawsuit against her back in April, claiming breach of contract, defamation and other things.

She further claimed that the manager tried to gain control over her career as well, in addition to her personal life. 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 complaint obtained by TMZ, Cardi B accused Shaft of trying to boost his 20 percent commission in a Sony music deal up to 50 percent.

The complaint, which can be read in full here, states: "Ms. Almanzar entrusted Shaft and his related entities with many aspects of her professional and business affairs and that trust was abused".

The rapper is being represented in this legal dispute by Paul LiCalsi, a partner at Robins Kaplan who has been the long-standing attorney for The Beatles.

Three months later, chart-topper Cardi is looking to have all management and recording agreements made with Raphael declared void by launching a counter-suit worth $15 million, which she filed in court on Thursday (July 5th), according to Variety.

In one instance, he said Offset contacted him late a year ago, saying he was a "snake" who had taken more than his fair share of Cardi B's earnings.

Now, Cardi B is countersuing Raphael for $15 million, accusing him of "self-dealing" and "deceitful and disloyal conduct".

The "Bodak Yellow" singer also claimed Raphael put "barriers between her and people close to her in an effort to maintain complete control over her", and told her "who she should and should not see romantically".
