After nearly three years of marriage, Cardi B files for divorce from Offset.
According to court documents in Georgia obtained by TMZ, Cardi is seeking sole custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Kulture. The “WAP” rapper stated in the documents that they are currently separated and wants the Migos member to pay child support.
Although this news caught many fans by surprise, the couple has had a rocky relationship following their secret wedding in 2017.
At the beginning of 2018, the 27-year-old rapper confirmed the cheating rumors after Offset was the subject of another sex tape. During this time, she asked for privacy so that she could, “make a decision in my own times with my heart and mind.” The South Bronx native defended her decision to stay with the 28-year-old rapper in a comment to a fan stating that “everyone” deals with infidelity. In her Cosmopolitan cover interview, she addressed that she wanted to work things out and that she’s “no angel” either.
A month following the birth of her first child and his fourth, the Grammy-winner was accused of ordering an attack on two women in a strip club where they worked as bartenders. Both women allege that the attacks were made as a result of Offset’s infidelity. Cardi faced misdemeanor charges of assault and reckless endangerment for the alleged attack but was indicted by a grand jury on felony charges in April of 2019.
On December 5th, 2018, Cardi announced their breakup on Instagram which resulted in the ever so memorable “Y’all won” comment left by Offset. While the “Father of 4” rapper tried to transfer the blame onto the fans, TMZ reported that same day that he was trying to arrange a ménage à trois with Summer Bunni and Cuban Doll.
Later in the month, Offset made it clear that he regretted his actions through tweets and a video posted on Instagram where the Atlanta native apologized for being a “selfish, messed up husband” and pleaded to get his wife back.
The apology tour came to an abrupt halt during Cardi’s headline performance at the Rolling Loud music festival. Although this event marked the first woman to headline the festival, Offset interrupted the monumental moment by surprising her on stage with a series of signs that read “Take Me Back, Cardi.”
Things were looking up for the couple but unfortunately came to an end a few days before celebrating their third wedding anniversary.
