Carliz de la Cruz became a millionaire after the Bad Bunny lawsuit

Bad Bunny, whose real name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, is involved in a legal dispute with his ex-partner Carliz de la Cruz, with whom he was in a relationship from 2011 to 2016.

Initially exposed by the Puerto Rican news channel NotiCel, she began a lawsuit against him in March 2023, claiming that he used a recording of her voice saying the phrase “Bad Bunny baby” without her consent in various songs, live performances, television commercials and social media snippets .

At first, his team offered him $2,000 in compensation, but he turned it down.

El Diario NY reports that Bad Bunny ultimately lost the legal battle and will now have to pay $40 million in damages to de la Cruz.

According to MSN, the lawsuit states, “Since De La Cruz clearly stated that he did not authorize its use, its publication was an act of gross negligence, bad faith […] considering that all parties had and still have knowledge of this fact. and yet decided to be reckless and break the law.”

According to The Guardian, Bad Bunny and de la Cruz initially began dating in 2011, after meeting at the University of Puerto Rico in Arecibo.

They both hold jobs at the Enoco supermarket chain. During this period, de la Cruz managed Bad Bunny’s event scheduling, as well as handling his invoicing and contracts, while he focused on his music career.

In 2015, he asked de la Cruz to record himself saying the phrase “Bad Bunny baby,” which he made up and recorded several times on his phone.

The following year, he proposed to her, but then she signed with Rimas Music, and he was admitted to the law school of the University of Puerto Rico. They ended their relationship and briefly reconciled in 2017 before parting ways permanently.

Following the inclusion of de la Cruz’s recordings in his songs “Pa Ti” (2016) and “Dos Mil 16” (2022), Bad Bunny continues to use them in live performances, promotions and across various media platforms including television, radio, and social media.

In 2022, a representative from his team at the time offered to pay him $2,000 to acquire recordings for his upcoming album “Un Verano Sin Ti”. However, de la Cruz declined the offer, but the song was still released on audio, without his consent.

“Since then, thousands of people have commented live on Carliz’s social media networks, as well as whenever he goes out in public, about ‘Bad Bunny, dear’. This has caused, and is currently causing, that De La Cruz feels worried, sad, afraid, overwhelmed and anxious,” the lawsuit states.

Bad Bunny has yet to comment on the lawsuit.
