Cardi B Opens Up About Her Controversial Decision To Get A Divorce —”I wanted to let y’all know I have not shed not one tear.”
Updated September 21, 2020.
Three years have passed since Cardi B and Offset got married and quite a bit has happened for them in the interim. They’ve had a child, they’ve both managed to make Billboard music hits and come out with multiple albums. They’ve dealt with public spats, accusations of infidelity, breakups and reunions.
Last week Cardi announced that they’re officially ending it.
Now’s she’s opening up about why.
In a post shared to her Instagram LIVE on Friday, Cardi B confirmed reports that she’d filed to divorce Offset. Surprisingly, she even opened up about why. The rapper revealed that after being with Offset for four years, she “got tired of not seeing things eye to eye” and that she has “not shed not one tear” since making her decision.
Further referencing her decision to file, Cardi explained that “Every single time that this guy has been so crazy, so f—ed up and it hits the media, I’m always crying, always sad because I don’t like that type of s—,” she explained before going on to assert that “this time, I wasn’t crying. You want to know why? The reason for my divorce is not because of none of that s— 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—ing complete lie. That’s the second time people are trying to pin babies over here. No, that’s bulls—.”
Ultimately, the rapper admitted to growing tired of the dynamic of her relationship with her “Clout” collaborator.
“I just got tired of f—ing arguing,” she confessed. “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.”
“Nothing crazy out of this world happened, sometimes people really do grow apart,” she admitted. “I 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 and the build-up. You get tired sometimes and before something happens, you leave.”
The “WAP rapper” filed for divorce from Offset last week.
Cardi filed for divorce from the Migos member earlier this week on September 15. The divorce petition was filed with the Fulton County Superior Court in Atlanta, Georgia.
“Offset and Cardi both continue to put Kulture first through this troubling time,” a source reportedly told Us Magazine. According to reports, the couple has a hearing set for Wednesday, November 4.
In December 2018, Cardi confirmed that she had split from Offset in an Instagram video where she claimed they “grew out of love.”
“So everybody been bugging me and everything and you know I’ve been trying to work things out with my baby’s father for a hot minute now,” Cardi said. “We are really good friends and we are really good business partners — you know he’s always somebody that I run to talk to, and we got a lot of love for each other — but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time. It’s nobody fault I guess we just grew out of love, but we are not together anymore. It might take time to get a divorce and I’m going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father.”
At the time, Offset begged to be taken back and gave her a long apology on Instagram.
“I only got one birthday wish and that’s to get my wife back Cardi,” Offset revealed. “We’re going through a lot of things right now, a lot of things in the media. I want to apologize to you Cardi. I embarrassed you. I made you go crazy.”
Soon after, the couple reunited and made things official at the 2019 Grammys. As part of an interview with Vogue this past January, Cardi opened up about forgiving Offset’s infidelity.
“Everybody has issues,” Cardi explained. “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. 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 ass if you cheat on me.”
