Now we know why Cardi B failed to show up in criminal court in Manhattan on Monday. In an emotional video posted online early Wednesday, the Bronx rapper revealed she and her promiscuous husband, rapper Offset, have parted ways.
Singer Ray Charles, who is long deceased, saw this one coming.
Cardi said things haven't been working out between her and Offset. She said they remain "really good friends" and "it's nobody's fault," but "I guess we grew out of love."
She said the divorce proceedings will take some time, and she will always have love for Offset because he is her daughter Kulture's father.
The 26-year-old new mom is fed up with rumors about her husband's constant cheating. Her friends whispered in her ear about the latest gossip involving Offset, real name Kiari Cephus, participating in a 3-way sex romp with aspiring rapper Cuban Savage, 20.
Offset, also 26, reportedly engaged in an intimate encounter with Cuban Savage, who, like most young "stars" gained fame on social media before transitioning into a rap career. Does that sound familiar?
Offset jumped into the comments to deny everything as rumors swirled on social media. But that was just the latest rumor of Offset cheating on his faithful wife.
If you recall, your auntie told you about the stripper whose rent was being paid in a South Buckhead apartment complex. Then there is the bartender at a strip club in Queens, NY, who was allegedly assaulted by Cardi and her crew after the "Ring" rapper became convinced that the bartender was cheating with her man.
Cardi was due in court on Monday to face charges on felony assault and reckless endangerment, but she never showed up. Her attorney explained that he didn't know where the rapper was, and he couldn't establish contact with her.
The judge gave Cardi until Friday to show up in his courtroom or an arrest warrant will be issued.
Cardi's friends and family warned her about Offset, but she wouldn't listen. They told her that a man with multiple baby mamas was not a good candidate for marriage, but she wouldn't listen; they said she shouldn't sign with Offset's record label in Atlanta, Quality Control Records but she wouldn't listen; they warned her not to become his 4th baby mama -- but she wouldn't listen.
