Cardi B has been hit with claims of appearing in a sex tape.
A video has been leaked onto the Internet as it is claimed to show the 25-year-old singer dancing in the nude, according to Page Six.
The video was leaked onto the Internet on Friday, on the same day as the release of her latest single, Bartier Cardi.
Fans quickly jumped to Cardi’s defense on social media.

‘In the video, one can see Cardi B smiling, laughing, twerking and bending over for the camera,’ Page Six wrote.
The publication reported that the person who had posted the short clip shared on Friday called it a ‘preview’ to a more explicit version.
One Twitter user asked, ‘Why are people leaking nude videos of Cardi B? She used to be a stripper, her naked body isn’t a secret or a scandal. Y’all won’t let anyone successful keep their past in the past.’
Another fan admitted that the leaked video was released in poor taste as her second single Bartier Cardi hit iTunes the same day.
‘You gotta be next level lame to post a video of cardi b nude twerkin on the night she trying to establish herself as a label artist,’ one Twitter fan wrote.
One Twitter user chose a gif of Wendy Williams shaking her head, with the comment, ‘Trying to figure out why there’s a nude video of Cardi B on the timeline this morning.’
Cardi – real name Belcalis Almanzar – was a former Bronx-based stripper with a massive social media following.
The Love & Hip Hop: New York star shot to fame earlier this year with her hit song Bodak Yellow, which also won Single of the Year at the BET Awards.
Not only did the song go triple-platinum, but it also knocked Taylor Swift’s coveted Look What You Made Me Do off the top of the Billboard Hot 100.
She recently became engaged to rapper Offset of the trio Migos and was nominated for two Grammy Awards.
