Cardi B finally opens up about her divorce from Offset. The rapper took to Instagram Live on Friday and addressed fans for the first time since filing divorce on Tuesday.
She thanked fans for their support and said she has “not shed one tear” over their separation but also revealed that the divorce was not as a result of Offset’s cheating.
“Every single time that this guy has done something so crazy, so fu**ed up and it hits the media, I’m always crying, I’m always stressed out, I’m sad because I don’t like that type of shit,” Cardi said. “This time, I wasn’t crying. You want to know why? The reason for my divorce is not because of none of that shit that ever happened before. It’s not ’cause of cheating.”
She denied the speculations that Offset was expecting a baby with another woman. “I’m seeing people be like, ‘Oh, he has a baby on the way.’ That’s a whole fu**ing complete lie. That’s the second time people are trying to pin babies over here. No, that’s bullshit.”
Meanwhile, the couple had previously separated briefly in 2018 following Offset’s infidelity. However, they later reconciled after Offset pleaded with his wife to take him back.
“I just got tired of f**king arguing,” she continued. “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.”
Cardi revealed that the couple just grew apart. “I been with this man for four years,” she said. “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 and before something bad happens, before you get left, before you get cheated on, sometimes you just wanna leave. What is so bad about that?”
So she decided to end the relationship before things get worse. “Y’all want me to get cheated on 15 times before I leave? You want this ni**a to have a kid before I leave? No, sometimes you wanna stop it before it gets to that.”
She added that Offset’s infidelity would have come out real if it’s the truth. “We all know that Set is really sloppy when it comes to fu**in’ around. I’m sure it would have been something out now. No, just leave it.”
“I just wanna be a free bird,” she added.
Cardi B filed for divorce from her husband of three years on Tuesday, saying the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and “there are no prospects for a reconciliation.”
Moreover, Cardi is not allowing her divorce to hold her back on her birthday plans. She turns 28 next month and says she may go to Miami or the Dominican Republic to celebrate.
