Fans Are Calling Cardi B Insensitive And Classless For Giving Husband Offset $500,000 In Cash For His Birthday

Cardi B and Offset really did it up for the Migos rapper’s 28th birthday. After a stripper-filled bash in Los Angeles, Cardi dropped $500,000 in cash for her beau. The move angered fans on social media. Many felt flaunting that level of wealth as a birthday gift was in poor taste when it could be given to the less fortunate. 

The 27-year-old “Bodak Yellow” singer and Offet have had very public relationship troubles. Cardi has battled the courts over an incident where she allegedly hired the beatings of two women who may have slept with Offset. The pair temporarily split after more of Offset’s cheating became public last year. 

Cardi gifted Offset $500,000 in cash to Offset for his birthday. 

Cardi shared a video on Instagram where she sprung the big surprise on Offset. In the footage, he is sitting in front of a fridge as the “I Like It” rapper records his reaction. 

“You got everything. You got every shoe. What else can I give somebody that got everything? The fridge.” Cardi says alerting Offset’s attention to a fridge behind where he’s sitting. 

Every shelf is completely empty except for one with 500 one hundred dollar bills. Offset was clearly quite emotional, turning his head away from the camera so that his face couldn’t be seen as his friend pat his back in excitement. He tells Cardi she doesn’t have to give him all this money. 

“That’s five hundred thousand dollars,” Cardi says. “You can buy a car. You can buy more clothes… You can buy me more Birkin bags. You can do whatever the hell you want.” 

The cash appears to be more than Offset can hold, as he drops piles of money onto the floor and accidentally steps on it in the video. 

“Happy birthday. Don’t expect no Christmas gifts from me this year,” she says. Ain’t no Christmas gift. Only for the kids. I love you.” 

Not everyone found the ostentatious display of wealth to be a gesture of love or endearing for that matter. Many believed the present to be crass. 

Instagram users weren’t here for the rich flaunting their riches.

“Just think there’s people living on the streets, no where to go, money could have really helped people in real need,” one Instagram user commented.

Users were critical of the gift on all levels. Aside from thinking it would be better spent on those in need, others said it was impersonal, and just a bad gift to give someone who is already a millionaire. 

“This is really stupid, who gives their husband a wad of cash considering both of you are rich as it is. A birthday present is supposed to be something personal, putting stacks of cash in a fridge is thoughtless nonsense that Cardi is pretending is some artistic thing. It’s not,” someone wrote in the comments. 

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Cardi B is currently worth $24 million, while Offset’s net worth is estimated at $26 million. 

“What about giving the money to someone who needs it? To a Charity? To someone fundraising for a life changing operation? A homeless person? Money is not happiness!” Another said.

“My thing is, everybody on social media acts like relationships is perfect. And that’s crazy to me,” Cardi said. “I’m around so many women, and there’s always a woman talking about how she loves her man, but her man is not financially stable, or she has a problem with his mom, or the sex is not as good anymore. Everybody has issues.” 

Cardi B opened up to the magazine about people’s perceptions of her relationship with Offset — especially after she took him back following his multiple infidelities. When Cardi announced that she was splitting from him initially, Offset wrote on Instagram, “Y’all won.” The comment seemed to be addressed to fans who were rooting for the “Money” rapper to split from her husband. However, soon after the duo was back together. 

“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,” Cardi said. “He has my back for everything, I have his back for everything, so when you cheat, you’re betraying the person that has your back the most. Why would you do that? We have come to a clear understanding. For me, monogamy is the only way. I’ll beat your a** if you cheat on me.”

Cardi B And Sister Sued Over Video Claiming To Show ‘Racist MAGA Supporters’

Cardi B and her sister are being sued for defamation of character after a viral video taken by Hennessy Carolina Almánzar. The video shows two men, one wearing a MAGA hat, and one woman telling Hennessy to move her car, which is parked on the beach.

Earlier this month, Cardi B shared a video taken by her sister showing a confrontation over where a car was parked.

Cardi B, who is notorious for having widely broadcast Twitter feuds with people, posted the video in response to a tweet from Candace Owens. Owens is a controversial conservative figure whose brand is all about shock and awe. Owens famously said she thinks it would be okay if “Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well.”

Immediately, there was skepticism about the incident since the video starts during the confrontation.

Responding to nay-sayers, Cardi B shared a video of her sisters voice messages sent to her IG DMs. Hennessy claims in the messages that the white men were the aggressors against her and her girlfriend while they were on the beach.

The videos did not convince some people that her sister wasn’t in the wrong.

Cardi B’s tweet is filled with responses questioning the video and denying its authenticity. The argument immediately turned political because of the mention of Trump and Trump supporters. The conversation on Twitter is divided among people who believe Cardi B and her sister and those who don’t.

Now, Cardi B and Hennessy are being sued by the beachgoers in the video.

“These peaceful Suffolk County residents were quietly enjoying a Sunday at the Smith Point beach with their families, when rap celebrity Hennessy Carolina suddenly approached them, raging, spitting, insulting, assaulting, defaming and threatening them, all the while videotaping them because one of them wore a MAGA hat,” beachgoers’ Miller Place attorney John Ray said, according to ABC7NYC.

The lawsuit claims defamation of character because of the language used in the video against them.

According to Billboard, plaintiffs Peter Caliendo, Pauline Caliendo, and Manuel Alarcon claim that they had approached Hennessy and her girlfriend, Michelle Diaz, blocked them in with how she parked her car. The lawsuit states that the men asked for Diaz to move her car and that’s when Hennessy started to record the video and hurl names and insults at them.

Cardi B Just Created An Instagram Account For Kulture And It’s The Cutest Thing Ever

Cardi B Just Created An Instagram Account For Kulture And It’s The Cutest Thing Ever

There’s a new influencer in town and her name is Kulture Kiari. 

On Saturday, Cardi B posted a photo of 2-year-old Kulture to her Instagram page, writing: “Follow @KultureKiari new IG…So much cool cute baby stuff coming up.”

The Instagram page Cardi was linking to was a brand new page dedicated to the chart-topping rapper’s daughter, Kulture.

So far, the page has only thirteen photos posted, but has already racked up over 700,000 followers–and counting. 

A few of the pictures show Kulture in peak-cute form, wearing an adorable plaid skirt and pink cardigan. She also has a big white bow fixed on top of her head. 

The rest of the photos range from Kulture swimming in a pool to experimenting with Snapchat filters. All of the pictures have captions written in first-person, like “I look like mommy here” and “My mom was annoying me but it’s ok cause I look cute.”

The Instagram account even has some #TBT photos of when culture was a baby–one notably cute one where she’s trying mashed potatoes for the first time.

Naturally, Cardi’s fans are eating up all the extra Kulture content, writing comments like “Kulture is looking all cute” and “She is so freaking beautiful”.

Commenters couldn’t help but exclaim over Kulture’s fashionable outfits, accessories and hairstyles. 

In the past, Cardi has defended her decision to dress Kulture in expensive designer clothing, saying that her child is in the public eye and deserves to be dressed as well as she is.

“If I’m fly and Daddy’s fly, then so is the kid. If I’m wearing Cha-nay-nay, my kid’s having the same, you know what I’m saying,” she said on Instagram. “Because if I was looking like a bad b**ch, expensive b**ch and I have my kid looking like a bum bum, then y’all would be talking s**t.”

Kulture’s new Instagram page comes just days after Cardi B filed for divorce from husband of three years, Offset.

While she has largely stayed mum on the topic, she recently broke her silence via Instagram, explaining the reason behind the divorce. Cardi said she was simply “tired of the arguments” and that her and Offset “grew apart”. She also added that she “hasn’t shed one tear” over the dissolution of her marriage.

Interestingly enough, Offset has previously been candid about his desire for Kulture to stay out of the public eye and lead a relatively normal life. “I want my kids to be kids. I don’t like them having Instagram, I don’t want to move to LA, so there won’t be cameras in their face,” he told The Breakfast Club in 2019. “I keep my kids in public school, I don’t want my kid to be spoiled.”

Cardi, it looks like, has other plans.
