Cardi B files for divorce from estranged husband Offset


Like essentially everything else about Cardi B, her years-long romantic tale is excellent.

From their first date—the 2017 Super Bowl in Houston, a trip Offset marked as “a force move”— she and the Migos rapper moved on board a rollercoaster that saw them experience bewildering highs (a September 2017 impromptu wedding in their Atlanta room; his proposal a month later before a crowd at a Philadelphia show) and get thrown for more than a few loops, the greatest coming in the winding down a long time of 2018.

Offsets poor judgement (“I was partaking in activity that I shouldn’t have been partaking in,” he obliquely confessed in an online video) led his bride to the brink. “I guess we grew out of love,” she shared on social media that December as she tried to make sense of what exactly had gone wrong in their nascent marriage, “but we’re not together anymore. I don’t know. It might take time to get a divorce.”

So, in theory, the Grammy-winning “WAP” rapper’s Sept. 14 filing shouldn’t have been all that shocking. 

Except it came after a very public reconciliation that saw the parents to 2-year-old daughter Kulture steadily cruising along for nearly two, unfettered years as 28-year-old Offset poured on the charm, the heart-shaped diamonds and the Birkin bags. Bronx-bred Cardi, meanwhile—her husband’s name newly inked on her thigh high chatted to Vogue about why they remained such a formidable pairing. 

“Everybody has issues,” Cardi, 27, explained to the mag in January of weathering the storm of infidelity. “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.”

And with that the hip-hop power couple—between them, they lay claim to 11 Grammys nods with one win, seven BET Awards and countless Hot 100 tracks—truly seemed poised to continue their steady ascent.
