Cardi B says she has ‘not shed not one tear’ over divorce from rapper Offset – USA TODAY

Rapper Cardi B and former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders went live on Twitter together to discuss Sanders’ endorsement of Joe Biden.


Cardi B is setting the record straight on her divorce from Migos rapper Offset.

A few days after filing for divorce, the “WAP” artist went on Instagram Live Friday to share the reasons behind doing so and let everyone know that’s she’s doing just fine.

“I’m OK. I want to let y’all know I have not shed not one tear,” Cardi B said after thanking everyone for sending her well-wishes. 

She said usually when the media gets wind of the “crazy” things Offset has done, she ends up crying. But this time was different because her divorce wasn’t because of anything that happened in the past.

“It’s not because of cheating,” Cardi B said. “I just got tired of (expletive) arguing, I got tired of not seeing things eye to eye. When you feel like it’s just not the same anymore, before you actually get cheated on I’d rather just leave.”

The rapper, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, filed a divorce petition in Fulton County, Georgia, on Tuesday, requesting an end to her marriage to the Migos rapper, whose real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus.

According to the petition, obtained by USA TODAY, Cardi B wants legal and primary physical custody of the couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Kulture. She is also seeking an equitable division of their marital assets as well as for Offset to pay both child support and all of her legal fees from the divorce.

Cardi B also refuted rumors that she’s getting a divorce “for clout,” noting she doesn’t need to pull any stunts to sell anything she’s dropping adding that many of her projects have done well on their own.

“I don’t understand why people want the reason for the divorce to be something so, so bad. It’s nothing crazy, out of this world happened. Sometimes people really do (expletive) grow apart,” Cardi B said. “I’ve been with this man for four years, I have a kid with this man, I have a household with this man. Sometimes you’re just tired of the arguments, of the build ups. You get tired sometimes.”

The petition comes three years after the couple secretly wed in September 2017, before Offset publicly proposed a month later by offering Cardi B a giant ring while they were onstage during a Philadelphia concert.

The couple also broke up briefly in December 2018, when Cardi announced that she and Offset were no longer in a relationship.

The announcement came in the mist of reported infidelity on the part of Offset, with TMZ publishing a tearful video statement from model Summer Bunni in which she apologized for coming between the couple.

Cardi B Tweets In Defense of Kylie Jenner’s ‘WAP’ Music Video Cameo – Vulture

After fans started a petition for the removal of Kylie Jenner from Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” music video, Cardi took to Twitter Sunday to defend the cameo, which some objected to on the grounds that, as a wildly-successful reality star and cosmetics mogul, Jenner, who is white, was taking a slot that could have gone to another up-and-coming female musician of color, like her video costars Mulatto, Sukihana, and Rubi Rose, who appeared alongside more well-established singers Normani and Rosalía in the video’s extremely wet mansion. In a series of (now deleted) tweets, Cardi explained why Jenner made the cut. In not so many words, Kylie and her family, especially mom Kris Jenner, are just plain nice.

“Why did I put Kylie on my music video?,” Cardi wrote, in response to a tweet criticizing Jenner’s lack of musical or dance ability, compared to costar Normani. “She treated my sister and daughter so lovely at her kid bday party. Travis and Set are real close and Kris Jenner have giving me advice on certain things I ask for and her husband real cool with mine.”

“These are the girls that I personally like,” Cardi had previously told Apple Music about the female artists she featured in the video. “That I like their music. That I really feel they are going to go mainstream.” In several other deleted tweets, captured here by PopCrave, the rapper defended Jenner’s cameo, which featured her strutting down a hallway and opening a door, when compared to Normani’s, which highlighted the singer’s dancing.

“Normani is one of the best female artist that dances Like she dances her fuckin ass off!,” she tweeted. “Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense? The best part of the song is the beat & hook it what makes you want to shake your ass.” Wrote Cardi, “Not everything is about race. Theres issues out here in the world that it is about race that I preach all the time about. This is not about fuckin race.”
