It seems the fairytale has ended for Cardi B and Offset. Earlier this week, multiple outlets reported and confirmed that the "WAP" rapper has filed for divorce from the Migos member and is seeking full custody of their daughter, Kulture. Now Cardi is finally speaking out.
Cardi B took to Instagram Live on Friday to update fans on how she's been holding up following her filing for divorce. "I'm okay. I wanted to let y'all know I have not shed not one tear," said Cardi. "Every single time that this guy has been so crazy, so f*cked up and it hits the media, I'm always crying, always sad because I don't like that type of sh*t. This time, I wasn't crying."
Rumors had been circulating of Offset cheating and having a baby on the way, Cardi explained that this is not true. "The reason for my divorce is not because of none of that sh*t that ever happened before. It's not because of cheating. I'm seeing people be like, 'Oh, he has a baby on the way.' That's a whole f*cking complete lie. That's the second time people are trying to pin babies over here. No, that's bullsh*t."
Cardi continued that she just "got tired of f*cking arguing" and explained that "sometimes people really do grow apart." She also denied allegations that the divorce filing was a publicity stunt to hype her next album. Check out her statement in the video below.
While the unexpected news came just days after their third wedding anniversary, the divorce filing claims that the couple has already separated. The filing lists Cardi B as the plaintiff and Offset as the defendant, citing that the marriage is “irretrievably broken” with “no prospects for reconciliation." A divorce hearing is set for November 4.
The documents show that Cardi wants "legal custody and primary physical custody of 2-year-old Kulture" and is seeking an unspecified amount of child support "on a temporary and permanent basis." However, according to TMZ, sources insist that Cardi didn't know that her lawyer would include those conditions and she is looking to make this divorce as painless and amicable as possible.
Cardi B previously split very publicly from Offset in 2018 for allegedly cheating. However, the couple got back together in 2019. Just last month Cardi B spoke to Elle about their relationship saying, “I do know that my relationship has a lot of drama and everything. But there’s a lot of love, there’s a lot of passion, there’s a lot of trust, there’s a big friendship."
