Karen Civil the media maven from the naughties has made headlines this weekend amid claims that she swiped $60,000 from a rapper who apparentlly knew no better. That rapper has been identified as Joyner Lucas, who says Civil scammed him out of $60k under a contract that he says she never fully fulfilled dating back to 2015.
As evidenced in many tweets, Lucas made several prior attempts to get the contract honoured but they were never honoured by Civil. In case it couldn’t get any worse — Lucs shared an actual contract signed by Civil who confirmed she’d perform the actions but he says she never did. Civil has since denied the allegatios in statement to The Shade Room of all possible blogs.
UPDATE: Karen Civil has since been accused in a wild Twitter thread (with tons of evidence) of scamming a woman’s nonprofit out of thousands for what should’ve been a park in Haiti. (Click/Tap here)
But we’d like to bring your attention to several other people who may not be as big as Joyner Lucas who have also allegedly been scammed by Karen Civil. To protect their identities we have opted not to publicly name them to protect them from retaliation from Civil —- who has a known penchant to sue people she herself has scammed.
One website developer who says they were contracted to work for Civil several years ago that Civil took some code and a design that belonged to them but they were never actually paid for their work. We were able to confirm at least two other instances of Civil allegedly stealing designs and work from other people (not including physical content like say something found in an article.)
Dating back as early as 2011, Civil has been the subject of claims that she has conned everybody from a website developer to actual musical artists. In 2012 and 2014, multiple people revealed to The Daily News that Karen refused to pay them for services performed. At least one of those people acknowledges that they didn’t understand the contract, but, nonetheless still weren’t fuilly paid despite the terms of their own contract.
But some of the higher profile ones include people like Jessie Woo. Woo revealed on Instagram that she was abruptly served with a lawsuit by Civil a while back or $3m. That lawsuit in essence claimed defamation of character with a dash of libel at one point.
But in fact it is tidbits from Civil ‘s own contract that are drawing ire. According to many of the images of the contract posted online, the contract provided to Joyner Lucas in 2015 does not appear to have actually been penned by a lawyer. Apart from several missing general contractor clauses in the agreement the agreemet is riddled with several errors. In one paragraph, Civil ‘s camp misspells simple words like (“Enterprise’) among several other errors.
Civil has already released numerous statements regarding this situation all of which appear to be fairly generic statements.
