Cardi B Claps Back At Ashanti’s Sister After Design Ripoff Claims

Looks like there was a small internet confrontation between Cardi B and Ashanti’s sister Kenashia Douglas over a recent Fashion Nova collection. 

It’s no secret that Cardi B just released an amazing collection with affordable retailer Fashion Nova which features pieces that are new to the Bronx rapper.

However, according to Kenashia Douglas who is the sister of Ashanti, she claims that Cardi ripped off her ideas.

This all started back in 2017 when Douglas was planning on releasing a velvet/fur two-piece outfit. She posted the picture on Instagram with the caption;

“As I roll over and say THANKS for the day. Peep how the universe works.. I was planning to put this pic up as a tbt today bc I’m tired of it I posted it last year and as creative things get old and annoying fast.. . And I peeped people, certain designers I’ve worked with even! try to run with the design and make it their own. I charged it to the game cuz I’m no hater b***h and I know the possibilities of my creativity are limitless & I can rely solely on that an be good! however, I’m reminded no matter how old never doubt myself! #Fashionnova.”

That post also included a picture of Cardi’s two-piece look to show the similarities. Seeing the post, the “Bodak Yellow” singer responded letting Douglas know that her collection had nothing to do with her.

“I’ve said plenty of times that my life was inspired by many of my favorite designers! Including this one! Inspired by one of my favorite designers and good friends LaQuan Smith! Sweetie I don’t know You!”

Following that comment from Cardi, Douglas responded letting her know that there as no shade in her statement.

This post was all about celebrating the idea I had and the creative process and how this release reminds me to never doubt myself even when I feel things get old #noshade.”
