Cardi B and Offset’s “on again-off again” relationship is back on again, and it looks as though the divorce is off. Belcalis and her husband have had their share of ups and downs, and living their lives in the public eye definitely doesn’t make it any easier. Scrutiny is the name of the game when it comes to fame, and they surely have had their fill. However, the “Be Careful” rapper is here to say she’s had enough, in a pretty passionate, yet very “on-brand” way.
It should be a celebratory time when someone releases a single, and it breaks all types of records, resulting in a number one for weeks. However, the rapper has had her share of criticism amidst the release of her latest single “WAP”, featuring Megan Thee Stallion, due to its raunchy sexual nature, and its accompanying visual.
Something else that derailed what should have been high times was the news of the rapper filing for divorce from her superstar husband. For many, divorce, while freeing in a way for obvious reason, can bring forth feelings of failure. This would also be the second time that the couple would break up in the public eye. Reports from the divorce papers stated the marriage was “irretrievably broken” and “there are no prospects for a reconciliation” this time around. When news of the divorce hit the Internet, Cardi received an outpouring of support from the public, while Offset became the victim of trolling.
During their marriage, the “Hustlers” actress stated many times that Offset was her “best friend.” So when the public set their sites on Offset after rumors of (more) cheating and possibly fathering another child as the reason for the divorce, Cardi stepped in to defend her baby’s father. A Twitter user that claims loyalty to the “#BardiGang” stated that her fans had the “right to drag” her at the time estranged husband for his actions and Cardi set the record straight in a since-deleted tweet.
“I don’t give a f— if you don’t like him. I don’t talk to him but you not going to disrespect my child father,” she proclaimed. “I will slap the s–t out of you in curtesy (sic) of Kulture. If he die, go broke, you not the one that’s going to raise my kid & you not the 1 who pays for her s–t.”
Recently, Cardi celebrated her 28th birthday with a lavish celebration in Vegas, and among party guests that included the likes of Megan Thee Stallion, Teyana Taylor, JT of The City Girls, and Queen Naija, was Offset. Cardi and her guests were reportedly led outside where the “Clout” rapper was waiting outside with a $330,000 Rolls Royce, equipped with a customized car seat for their daughter, Kulture. A video clip showed Cardi accepting the gift while the crowd cheered and chanted “take him back” in reference to her husband.
Multiple sources confirmed that the pair were inseparable and “all over each other” during the party. A few days afterward, Cardi shared in an Instagram video that she missed her best friend, among other things. “I’m just a crazy b—. One day, I’m happy and the next day I want to beat (him) up […] And then it’s like, I don’t know, I just start missing … It’s hard not to talk to your best friend. You know what I’m saying? It’s really hard not to talk to your best friend.”
With the news of the divorce seemingly off, fans began to once again speak on the relationship, some being concerned and even going as far as saying that the rapper was in a “mentally abusive relationship”. All of this leading Cardi to lash out in a series of tweets.
“Twitter users be like, ‘Cardi, you’re in a mentally abusive relationship. Oh my gosh. We gotta save you,'” she writes. She continued, offering a fake apology. ”Imma just give ya a apology because ya want me to apologize for living MY LIFE the way that ya live YOURS,” she tweeted along with another video. “I’m sorry. I’m not perfect I don’t want to be neither.”
In attempts to remind social media users who she was and what she used to do prior to becoming the “mainstream Cardi B” that she has now arrived at, she writes: “Imma make this very clear. Before I was a celeb I was crazy a** Cardi B. Same (person) ya saw on TV and on IG talkin (stuff) and doing crazy (stuff). I’m still that a lil bit more calm now but still the same. I don’t know why ya expect something different now. This ain’t Disney.”

Before deleting her Twitter account, the rapper, tired of all the scrutiny she has been facing, had one more message to her fans. In a video uploaded to Twitter, the rapper states, “All of ya’ll can suck my d—.”
She adds, “It’s like, ya’ll tryna control my life too much. It’s ridiculous, I don’t care. Ya’ll don’t pay my bills, ya’ll don’t do nothing. So stop it,” the rapper states. “I don’t care. […] I really don’t. At this point, I’m just sick of it.”
Fans responded to Cardi B’s video reminding the rapper fans are the people investing in her career and paying her bills. One fan replied to the rapper’s video stating, “Uh… they actually do: Like, where else would u get your money from music? Aliens?” See more replies below:
