Cardi B and Offset are officially done, according to an Instagram video just posted to Cardi’s account.
In the vid, a very nude-appearing Cardi B explains that she’s been trying to work things out with fellow rapper Offset for some time now, but it hasn’t been going so well.
While she says they’ll stay friends, business partners and co-parents, they are no longer a couple, and will be going through a divorce.
The announcement comes just over a year after the pair married secretly (in September 2017). Daughter Kulture was born in July 2018.
So everybody’s been bugging me and everything, and you know I’ve been trying to work things out with my baby’s father for a hot minute now. And we’re really good friends, and we’re really good business partners, and he’s always somebody who I run tot to talk to, and we’ve got a lot of love for each other.
But things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time. It’s nobody’s fault, I guess we just grew out of love, but we’re not together any more. It might take time to get a divorce and I’m always gonna have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father.
Their relationship had been dogged by rumours that Offset, a member of rap group Migos, had cheated on Cardi a number of times, which… why. The woman is the hottest thing in hip-hop right now, and a grade-A babe. Why would you want to fuck with that?
Fans on Twitter and Instagram seem to feel the same way, with many saying the rap star is better off without him.
It was Cardi’s time to go. He has stepped on her so many times and it I feel like was really hard for her as yes he was having her first child. This will make her grow much more mature and happier.
