Cardi B is suing her ex-manager, Klenord Raphael, for $15 million, claiming that he was too controlling of her career, personal life, and relationship with Offset, according to TMZ.

Raphael filed at $10 million suit against Cardi in April, claiming that she did not financially compensate him appropriately after he helped make her famous.
In Cardi's counter suit, she claims that Raphael tried to increase his usual 20% commission to 50% after she signed with Sony music, and that he put up walls between her and her loved ones -- including romantic prospects -- in an effort to "maintain complete control over her."

She alleges that after isolating her from other advisers, he signed her onto contracts that were unfair to Cardi and favorable mostly to his own needs and plans, then assured her that the deals were in line with industry standards when she questioned him.

The suit also claims that Raphael and his employees used money that belonged to Cardi for personal expenses, such as travel and entertainment, without first seeking permission.

Raphael has not yet responded to Cardi's countersuite, which was filed in New York by attorney Paul LiCalsi of Robins Kaplan
