Leshurr is said to have bitten her ex’s girlfriend when she stopped in her car, and then proceeded to attack her ex when she rushed out of the house to intervene. The ex reportedly sustained several injuries. While Leshurr denies the biting allegation, she claims that her ex’s partner “punched her in the head and stomped on her.”

The prosecutor argues that the accused individuals provided false statements during police interviews, which failed to account for the injuries sustained by the complainants. The trial is currently ongoing.

In a prior incident last year, Lady Leshurr gained attention in the United States when she publicly criticized Cardi B for using one of her beats in Cardi’s 2015 track, “Cheap Ass Weave.”

Originally released in 2015, before Leshurr achieved mainstream recognition, “Cheap Ass Weave” is a remix of Leshurr’s “Queen’s Speech 4” freestyle and has garnered over 4.5 million views on YouTube. Leshurr marked the seventh anniversary of her original track in August 2022 and expressed her desire for Cardi to acknowledge and compensate her for adapting one of her signature freestyles.

In response to a fan’s mention of Cardi’s version, Leshurr tweeted, “You mind asking Cardi if she can break me off a little something? She used my beat/idea before her big break, and now she’s a millionaire, and I got paid nothing.”

Cardi, however, responded with a touch of sarcasm, saying, “I made like 2 dollars off that song … you want the other dollar?”

Lady Leshurr, a MOBO Award-winning artist who has collaborated with prominent figures like and Wiley, as well as supported Nicki Minaj on tour, continued to make her case in response to Cardi’s tweet. She disclosed that she had sent Cardi an unanswered direct message regarding the song years ago, stating, “Would be nice, but to be honest, I just wanted my credit. It’s strange that I had to tweet for a response when I DM’d you years ago about it. I was fine when I thought it was just a YouTube cover, but now it’s on streaming platforms as ‘cheap azz weave,’ and yours comes up before mine, so yes, credit and compensation, please.”

Cardi eventually conceded, promising to remove “Cheap Ass Weave” from all streaming services and facetiously pledging to send Lady Leshurr a dollar. She assured, “I don’t find the song on Apple, but if it’s on any streaming service, I will make sure it’s taken down, including YouTube. I will also make sure I send you your dollar.”

At the time of this writing, “Cheap Ass Weave” remains accessible on YouTube, Spotify, and SoundCloud.
