Cardi B Announced That She & Offset Are Planning on Getting Divorced

Cardi and Offset have been together since mid-2017, and they announced their engagement on October 27.

Shortly afterward, on July 10, the couple gave birth to a daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus. It was Cardi’s first child and Offset’s fourth with as many women.
During their marriage, Cardi and Offset collaborated on several tracks together, including “MotorSport”, “Lick”, and “Who Want the Smoke?” alongside Lil Yachty. In an interview with The Fader, Cardi talked about how they encourage one another as artists.
“It’s been a blessing, me meeting him and meeting his friends. I see how hard they work,” she explained. “And that motivated me to work even harder. And I see how good things are going for them and how popping it is to be number one. And I’m like, I want that. A lot of people just see they jewelry and they money, but I don’t think a lot of people see how hard they work for that shit every single day.”

I know I could get any man I want — any basketball player, football player. But I want to work out my sh*t with my man, and I don’t got to explain why. I’m not your property.”
