- Hearing set for November 4
New York: According to court records, after three years of marriage, superstar rapper Cardi B filed for divorce on Tuesday from her husband rapper Offset. The couple, who secretly married in September 2017, were already through a well-publicized rough patch, which resulted in their break-up being announced nearly two years ago. “We got a lot of love for each other but things haven’t been working between us for a long time,” he said in a December 2018 video on Instagram. “It’s like that, I think we just grew out of love, but we’re not together anymore.”
But about a year later, the pair reconciled and Cardi B, whose real name is Belkalis Marlenis Almanzar, told Vogue at the time that her husband had split due to infidelity.
“We’ve come to a clear understanding. For me, monogamy is the only way,” she said.
Cardi B is seeking offset 2-year-old daughter Kulture and child support, whose real name is Kiyari Seifus.
A hearing is scheduled for November 4, according to Georgia’s Fulton County court, which is Offset’s home state.
Despite the turmoil in her personal life, Cardi B has rocketed from her humble origins to success in the Bronx of New York.
Her 2017 hit Bodak Yellow Brought her fame, and the 2020 chart topper Wap Brought her controversy.
The song is an unexpected celebration of female desire with graphic sexual metaphors that have warmed and upset American conservatives.
