Cardi B, the 27-year-old American rapper and actress files for divorce from rapper Offset after three years of their on and off marriage. The couple got married in a hush-hush way in 2017. Soon to be ex-couple share a two-year-old daughter, Kulture. Their relationship has always been the talk of the town due to Offset’s infidelity. In 2018, after Offset’s scandal was leaked, Cardi B declared that the couple ‘ grew out of love’ and were ‘not together anymore’ announcing their separation. But the duo got together after Offset publicly pleaded for her forgiveness.
Offset asked for an apology through an instagram post where he wrote, “ I was partaking in activity that I shouldn’t have been taking in and I apologize. You know what I am saying? For breaking your heart, for breaking our promise, for breaking God’s promise and being selfish, messed up husband.” He also added, “ I am trying to be a better person…. I apologize to you Cardi. I love you.”
She received a lot of backlash for reuniting with Offset specially from women. In April, 2019 in an interview with Cosmopolitan, Cardi B revealed that she didn’t feel like she owed anybody an explanation as it is her personal life. She said,” I know I look good, I know I’m rich, I know I’m talented. I know I could get any man I want- any basketball player, football player. But I want to work out my shit with my man, and I don’t got to explain why. I’m not your property. This is my life…It’s not right what he fucking did– but people don’t know what I did, ‘ cause I ain’t no angel.”
In January 2020, Vogue published an interview with Cardi B where she said, “ everybody has issues. I believe in forgiveness. I prayed on it. Me and my husband, we prayed on it. We had priests come to us. And we just came to an understanding like, bro, it’s really us against the world.”
