Another day where Cardi is stepping up to defend her name against what she says are baseless claims, this time from another Love And Hip Hop alum. The Bronx rapper should be celebrating as she just announced to the world that she was pregnant with her second child, but according to Cardi, the recent altercation caused quite the emergency and almost compromised her pregnancy.
Months of speculation from fans following her Grammy performance were finally confirmed when at the 2021 BET Awards, the “Up” rapper stepped on stage during Migos’s track “Type S**t” off their latest album Culture III. Immediately, fans were stunned to see her baby bump in a dazzling Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit. Along with the performance she also uploaded a beautiful shot from her maternity shoot as she announced the pregnancy on social media as well.
The chart-topper, whose critically acclaimed single “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion also walked away with two trophies at this year’s BET Awards for Best Collaboration and Video of the Year, received congratulatory remarks from fans and celebrity friends alike on social media. A seemingly different experience from her first pregnancy where she felt as though she was under constant scrutiny. “People be so thirsty to scrutinize and try to destroy something that [is supposed] to be a blessing,” she said at the time.
Fans are also well aware of the complications that almost destroyed the union between Cardi and her husband, Offset. In another photo uploaded to her Instagram, she shared a touching tribute to her husband while thanking everyone for the love that they are showing towards the couple.
“We listened to each other, communicated, prayed, and then God blessed us and our family with another little blessing,” the rapper captioned the photo. “Our home feels so blissful and very busy, but we are ready and so happy!! Thank you soo much everyone for the congrats and well wishes.”
Cardi also opened up about her feelings on Kulture’s upcoming role as a big sister while reflecting on her own relationship with her sister, Hennessey. “I just know these two will love each other soo much and argue soo much since they’re 3 years apart…just like me and Henny,” she wrote before adding, “But one thing for sure is they’ll have each other’s back like no one else ever will.”
But Cardi had to step out of her zen moment to address some claims made by fellow ex-Love and Hip Hop cast member, Jessie Woo. In a recent interview that Woo had with Hollywood Unlocked, she claims there are people behind the scenes that many in the general public would not know about that are powerful enough to initiate the demise of others careers. She then proceeds to “spill some tea” about a member of Cardi’s team who allegedly said their goal was to “knock Nicki [Minaj] out.”
“I met someone that was on Cardi’s team, back in 2017, and they literally told me… this is something that was told to me, that yeah, like, ‘Putting Cardi out, our goal was to knock Nicki out. And that was the first time I heard that topic,” said Woo. “Then, not too long later, the whole Nicki and Cardi thing happened. I remember just thinking to myself, yo, so-and-so told me this is what they were trying to do.”
Well, Cardi wasn’t having it. She commented under The Neighborhood Talk‘s Instagram post, who shared the clip, to debunk Woo’s claims, and give a bit of her past interactions with Jessie. “The lies !!! I hate that I gotta address s**t that is so irrelevant,” the rapper wrote. “Jessie [Woo] is the same person that I got on my dm askin me advice because she sign to my old record label and she felt like my old manager played her. If anybody ever told you that about another woman then why would you go and sign with them as well?”
Cardi added, “No matter how stressful my 3 years of litigation when with my old managers was I know he will never say that since he a Queens nikka and the last thing in our head was another woman when we was just trying to make it which we did .And yes I got the dms!”
Cardi wasn’t done. Taking to Twitter she wrote, “I’ve been quiet & at peace while I’m working & preparing for my blessing & I refuse to let ANYONE interrupt it. I’m not addressing any of these narratives the way I’ve let them distract me in the past. If anyone wants receipts head over to @officialKenBarbie on IG NOW. Byeee,” she concluded, directing her fans to the Ken Barbie Instagram page for further information (which you can see for yourself below).
Fans were soon notified by their BardiGang leader that all of the stress from the Jessie Woo argument caused her to have to pay an unexpected visit to the ER. “Last night I literally had to go to the ER because I stress myself soo much arguing wit a girl that lie about me,” she admitted on social media. “Arguing wit my sister because she wanted to violate the girl cause she wanted to promote music. I got so over heated I [couldn’t] even walk straight.”
Cardi has not revealed any more details of her hospital visit. We do hope that all is well with Cardi and the baby’s health.
