On September 15, Cardi B, whose real nameis Belcalis Almanzar, filed for divorce from husband rapper Offset after three years of marriage. The newsof the divorce comes after rumors that Cardi B caught Offset cheating yet again. Offset, whose real name is Kiari Cephus, is a member of the rap group, Migos.
Three Years Not-so-Strong
The couple secretly wed in 2017, but did not publicly announce their marriage until one year later. It seemed the couple had a good first year, but things went down quickly soon thereafter. Since this time, Offset and Cardi B have made their home in Georgia. They share a two-year-old daughter, Kulture, for whom Cardi B has asked the courts for full physical custody. Offset will still visit with his daughter.
The reality TV star-turned rapper cited in court documents that their marriage was ‘irretrievably broken.’ Sources say the couple have been living separately for some time now after Cardi B suspected that Offset was having an extramarital affair with another woman. Further, the couple and sources close to them say there is no hope for a reconciliation.
As for finances, Cardi B asked the courts to split their property 50/50. It is unclear who will control the couple’s home. The couple did not sign a prenuptial agreement before their marriage. Finances seem to be one of the last concerns in this divorce.
A Second Chance at Marriage
This is not the first time the couple have made headlines over their relationship.
The couple split in December 2018 after accusations that Offset cheated on Cardi B. After the rapper asked for forgiveness on-stage in front of a large crowd at his concert, the two reconciled the marriage.
Fans criticized Cardi B at the time. She responded by saying that Offset was truing and that she was unsure if they’d get back together. Months later, Cardi B posted Instagram photos of the happy family together.
A Final Split
Cardi B has been pretty quiet on social media since she filed for divorce. On Wednesday, she shared a promo single photo for “Mi Gusta.” “This Friday!ME GUSTA ! @anitta ft me & @myketowers,” was the caption for the shot. Offset also shared a post stating ‘Grind Don’t Stop’ with several solo shots of himself.
