The rapper and her sister, reality star Hennessy Carolina, just beat a defamation case brought against them by three people who got into a confrontation with Carolina in The Hamptons back in September 2020, TMZ reports.

According to the lawsuit filed in Suffolk County at the time obtained by Billboard, the three plaintiffs claimed Carolina and her friends parked and blocked one of their vehicles. When the plaintiff wearing a MAGA hat approached the driver — Carolina’s girlfriend — Carolina began filming the altercation and allegedly began “shouting foul and threatening language and defamatory statements.”

The trio claimed the “Love & Hip Hop” alum accused them of being “racist MAGA supporters,” specifically taking issue with being labeled racists on-camera.

They also claimed Carolina and Cardi — who shared the footage online and believed her sister was being targeted as a gay, Afro-Latina woman — edited the clips “to remove portions thereof, and thereby hold plaintiffs in a false light, so as to tend to expose and in fact expose each plaintiff to public contempt, ridicule and disgrace and harm.”

A New York trial judge, however, has dismissed the defamation, assault and battery case, saying the insults hurled by Carolina were too general, and don’t rise to the level of defamation.

The win comes two months after Cardi won her own defamation suit against gossip blogger Tasha K, with a Georgia jury awarding the “Be Careful” artist $1.25 million in damages after two weeks of deliberation.

Cardi stays winning in court.
