She added: 'I am grateful for the jury and their careful deliberation over the past two weeks. I am profoundly grateful for the hard work and support from my legal team. Most importantly, thank you to my family and close friends who held my hand and helped me get the support I needed during this experience.'

Among other allegations, Tasha accused Cardi of having worked as a prostitute and contracted sexually transmitted illnesses in the process.

Cardi, who testified during the trial that the claims against her left her 'suicidal,' said in her victory statement that her public has now 'learned about the darkest time in my life,' which was 'fueled by the vile, disgusting, and completely false narratives that were repeatedly and relentlessly being shared online.'

The rap star, whose debut album was called Invasion Of Privacy, added: 'I thought I would never be heard or vindicated and I felt completely helpless and vulnerable. I have never taken for granted the platform that my fame allows me to have, which is why for over three years I dedicated every resource I had to seek justice.'

Cardi then declared that 'the intentional harm that was done to me, is done to countless others every day.' She added, 'The only difference between me and the high schooler who is being cyberbullied and lied on by their classmates is the money and resources I have access to.'

What did Cardi B win in her lawsuit against blogger Tasha K?

She continued: 'We collectively have to say enough is enough. We can no longer be a society that turns a blind eye to blatant lies. The unchecked behavior and provably false content on platforms like YouTube have to be addressed and removed.'

Cardi insisted: 'The constant harassment and lies that are reported as factual from journalists and bloggers have to end.'

The Hustlers actress is aware of the 'power' of social media, which helped give her a career, and credits it with fueling movements like Black Lives Matter, but noted that 'we've also seen countless stories of children and adults deciding to take their own lives due to cyberbullying and intentional attacks.'

She noted: 'So while I am very grateful that this trial has come to its conclusion and the jury has rendered a powerful and substantial message, literally - I really hope that my experience forces all of us, but especially the platforms who allow this behavior to be a part of their communities, to re-think what moves us forward as a society versus what cripples us.'

Cardi added: 'If you're thinking about suicide, are worried about a friend or loved one, or would like emotional support, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline for help at 1-800-273-TALK.' 

She was awarded an additional $2.8 million on Tuesday by a jury after winning her federal libel case against Tasha K.
