Cardi B and Offset never really had that picture perfect relationship, with multiple cheating scandals having gone public, and Cardi addressing Offset’s infidelities herself on her Instagram. However, Cardi says that those past scandals aren’t why she’s divorcing from the Migos’ member.
Incase you forgot, the pair secretly got married in September of 2017, but at that point fans had only known them to be a couple, which explains why in October of that year Offset “proposed” to Cardi onstage at Powerhouse in Philadelphia.
Little did we all know they were already married, but just 5 days before that “proposal” Cardi B had already taken their relationship drama to her Instagram, with a post and delete of a selfie with the caption “single”. She later addressed that picture, giving us little details in regards to what happened, but apologizing to Offset saying that she was really upset and that the Bronx girl in her took it to the extreme.
Fast forward a couple months later to January of 2018, and cheating rumors start to fly about Offset having made a sex tape with another woman. Later that year in August, shortly after the birth of their daughter Kulture, Cardi allegedly ordered an attack on two bartenders – one of which she thought Offset had cheated on her with. People continuously questioned why Cardi would stay with him, and she let everyone know that this is her life and that she’s going to take her time to make a decision. She made it known that what he did wasn’t right, but also said that she was no angel either.
After months of attempting to work things out, Cardi took to Instagram in December 2018 to let everyone know that things haven’t been working out with them for a long time, alluding to some sort of split, where Offset also left his infamous “y’all won” comment.
A couple days later, Offset took to his Instagram to apologize to Cardi for being a “selfish, messed up husband”, spending that month begging for her forgiveness and even ambushing her on stage during one of her performances.
They managed to work things out and stay together, but here we are a baby and three years of marriage later where Cardi has officially decided to file for divorce. The court documents state that Cardi is looking for primary and physical custody of their two year old daughter Kulture, and that there is no prospect for reconciliation.
With many assuming the reason for the divorce is all the back and forth cheating done by Offset, Cardi took to Instagram live to say that that isn’t the case. She said that nothing “out of this world” happened, but she simply got tired of all the arguing and not seeing eye to eye. Cardi also assured fans that she is okay and hasn’t shed one tear and squashed the recent false rumour that Offset has a baby on the way with someone else. Cardi went on to say that, “When you feel like it’s just not the same anymore, before you actually get cheated on, I’d rather just leave.”
Either way, it’s safe to say a lot of their arguments probably stemmed from all the previous cheating allegations. And just like that, that’s the end of one this generations favourite hip-hop couples.
