Cardi B is seeking primary custody of her 2-year-old daughter Kulture in her divorce from promiscuous rapper Offset.

The "WAP" rapper, real name Belcalis Almanzar, filed documents in a Fulton County, Georgia court on Tuesday to end her three-year marriage to the Migos star. A hearing is set for November 4.

Further details from the legal papers reveal that Cardi is asking for legal and primary physical custody of Kulture, and wants Offset to pay child support.

But word is that Offset is broke due to child support payments for his 4 other children and the coronavirus lockdowns prohibiting nightclub gigs and national tours. The Migos rapper has very little income and a ton of bills.

In the documents, Cardi states via her lawyer that the marriage is "irretrievably broken". Adding that the former couple are currently separated, the papers add that "there are no prospects for a reconciliation".

According to the paperwork, the divorce is "contested", with Cardi listed as the plaintiff and Offset the defendant. However, the "Bodak Yellow" star ultimately hopes it will be "settled by agreement of the parties".

Following the filing of the papers, a source close to Cardi told TMZ.com that she had no idea that her lawyer was going to be state her case that way, and she actually wants the split to be as "amicable" as possible.

"She wants Offset to have joint custody of Kulture and is determined to have an amicable, co-parenting situation," the insider told the website. "Her divorce petition also says she wants child support. (But) she does not want any support from Offset ... in the financial department, she's the Bank of Cardi."

Rumor has it that Cardi knows she would be in for a fight if she sought sole custody of Kulture. Offset knows all of Cardi's secrets -- dirt she doesn't want exposed in court papers.

Cardi B's ill-advised marriage to promiscuous rapper Offset appears to be over. The "Bodak Yellow" rapper filed divorce papers in a Fulton County, Georgia court on Tuesday, according to Page Six.

The couple wed almost three years ago to the day and shares a two-year-old daughter, Kulture. A hearing has been set for November 4.

According to a confidential source who has vast knowledge of this matter: Covid-19 is the reason behind the divorce action.

The source said the couple realized they weren’t marriage material during the lockdown. They discovered they have totally different personalities. Also, the lockdown made it harder for Offset to communicate with his Atlanta side piece.

With no club dates and no tours, Cardi and Offset were faced with the difficult task of getting to know each other without distractions at home.

They quickly discovered their 22,000 sq. ft. leased Buckhead mansion was not big enough for the 2 of them.

All-In-Media / BACKGRID

The source said Cardi was adamant that Offset take the passwords off his phones. "What are you hiding?!" was a familiar refrain in their home.

The couple's marriage hit a wall when Cardi accused the Migos star of cheating on her, but she decided to save their marriage, telling Vogue last year, "When me and my husband got into our issues - you know, he cheated and everything - and I decided to stay with him and work together with him, a lot of people were so mad at me; a lot of women felt disappointed in me, but it's real-life s**t.

"If you love somebody and you stop being with them, and you're depressed and social media is telling you not to talk to that person because he cheated, you're not really happy on the inside until you have the conversation."

The ex-couple do not have a prenup in place. Cardi may be forced to pay Offset spousal support.

Cardi B hired a private investigator after a teenage Donald Trump supporter posted her address online.

The 27-year-old rapper revealed the news to fans during an Instagram Live chat, explaining the Trump supporter posted her address online and urged followers to set her Atlanta house on fire.

"They be making fun of me. I ignore them. I don't give a f**k," Cardi explained. "Let me tell you something. S**t gets so intense that a Trump supporter posted my address and encouraged people to put my house on fire.

"I literally hired a private investigator, and serve them with a warrant and arrest this boy. This boy was a f**king teenager. His parents were shook."

The "Bodak Yellow" hitmaker made herself a target for Trump fans in recent months after praising Democrats Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and making it clear she'll be voting for Joe Biden in November's general election.

She recently defended her political statements when controversial Republican commentator Candace Owens called the rap star "dumb" and "illiterate".

“It's not a secret I use my platform to encourage people to vote," the rap star said. "I love politics... Today, Candace Owens said some real nasty things about me."

Cardi stated she would urge millions of young adults to vote for Biden.

Cardi B didn't hold back when a writer tweeted America needs "far more women like Melania Trump" and "far less like Cardi B."

The comment was made by political correspondent DeAnna Lorraine, who took to Twitter to remark on U.S. First Lady Melania Trump's speech during the second night of the Republican National Convention on Tuesday.

Cardi, 27, shared a vulgar picture of former model Melania from back in the day and referenced her No. 1 hit song "WAP" as she wrote: "This pic giving me 'yea you f**kin wit some wet a*s p**sy' vibes …just sayin."

Cardi is a vocal anti-Trump activist who has voiced her support for Democratic nominee Joe Biden, who recently revealed he will campaign from his basement until the 2020 presidential election in November.

The Bronx native previously took aim at Trump supporters for playing her and Megan Thee Stallion's "WAP" during a recent boat party.

"WAP" was heavily criticized due to its sexually explicit lyrics, but Cardi said in a recent interview there are some words and phrases fans will never hear in her rap repertoire.

She told Australia's The Kyle and Jackie O Show that she has banned the use of "moist", "discharge" and "horchata" from her music.

Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion have teamed up with Ca$h App to give away $1 million in Twitter's biggest-ever cash prize.

The rap duo, who recently topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart with their new single "WAP," announced the giveaway on Wednesday, Aug. 19.

The ladies asked their Twitter followers to post their #Cashtags to get part of the $1 million, which is exclusively for women.

"To all everyone supporting #WAP we see you!! we're partnering with Twitter and Cash App to celebrate all the powerful women out there by giving away a total of $1 million dollars," Megan said.

Women who tweet #WAPParty along with their $Cashtag will have a chance to receive a portion of the money through Cash App.

Fans who received cash in $500 increments thanked Cardi and Megan on Twitter.com.

Cardi and Megan have come under fire over the raunchy track and its provocative video, featuring an array of famous faces including Normani, Rosalia, Rubi Rose, Sukihana, Mulatto, and Kylie Jenner playing fancy whores in a virtual mansion that features butt sculptures, breast fountains, tigers, snakes and leopards.

Although some have slammed it as degrading for sexualizing women, the stars insist the hedonistic song promotes female empowerment.

Cardi B shared her ideas with Democratic nominee Joe Biden that she hopes he will do if he is elected president in November.

The rapper, who hopes to be appointed Biden's secretary of education, spoke with the politician via Zoom video conference, as part of her Elle magazine cover story.

During the chat, Biden asked the "Bodak Yellow" rapper what she expects from the next U.S. leader.

"I have a whole list of things that I want our next president to do for us. But first, I just want Trump out," she said. "His mouth gets us in trouble so much."

"I don't want to be lied to -- we're dealing with a pandemic right now, and I just want answers. I want to know when this will be over. I want to go back to my job. But I don't want someone to lie to me and tell me that it's fine not to wear a mask, that everything is going to be okay."

Cardi continued: "I want a president to tell me what the steps are for us to get better, to tell me, 'This is why it is taking so long, this is why other countries are doing better than ours.' Tell me the truth, the hard-core truth."

"And also: I want free Medicare. It's important to have free (healthcare), because look at what is happening right now. Of course, I think we need free college. And I want Black people to stop getting killed and no justice for it. I'm sick of it. I just want laws that are fair to Black citizens and fair to cops, too..."

After listening to the "WAP" star's list of demands, Biden, 78, responded: "Also, by the way, if I get elected president, anybody with a family (that makes) less than 125 grand, you're going to get free education. And everybody gets free community college."

He added: "The way we can pay for all of this is doing practical things, like making sure that everybody has to pay their fair share. (For example) no corporation should pay less than 15 per cent tax."

Cardi is lending her support to Biden, after her initial pick for president, Bernie Sanders, dropped out of the race in April to make way for Biden.

Hip-hop star CeeLo Green walked back his harsh criticism of hot female rappers Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, insisting his comments were taken out of context.

The 45-year-old Gemini made headlines this week after telling Far Out magazine he's not impressed by the ladies' immoral behavior and sexed-up lyrics in their "WAP" music video.

"A lot of music today is very unfortunate and disappointing on a personal and moral level," he said. "There was once a time when we were savvy enough to code certain things. We could express to those it was meant for with the style of language we used. But now music is shameless, it is sheer savagery."

But fans dragged the pop singer, with many reminding him of his own raunchy lyrics in hit songs such as "F**k You."

Many on social media considered his remarks sexist and hypocritical toward women. On Wednesday, CeeLo took to Instagram to address the backlash, claiming it was all one big "misunderstanding".

In a lengthy note, he wrote, "Firstly, I am an advocate of artistic freedom and expression, as well as a fan of Nicki, Cardi & Meagan [sic]. I know most of them personally and consider Cardi & Offset family. Therefore, I would never disrespect them by any means. I acknowledge them all as powerful, beautiful and influential women...and professionals."

CeeLo went on to accuse bloggers and tabloid reporters of stirring up controversy by twisting his words.

"I wholeheartedly apologize to each of them for the inconvenience they have been caused due to a snippet of my interview being used as a headline, and in turn creating controversy and disconnect between me and these ladies as well as their fans. Know that I support everyone who is part of our community & (Black) culture. Always have and always will!"

He added: "Much love to all of the female artists who are running the game and handling their business. With Love, Lo."

Megan Thee Stallion didn't waste any time responding to singer CeeLo Green who criticized her and Cardi B's raunchy music video "WAP."

The 25-year-old up-and-coming rapper took to Twitter.com to slam CeeLo and hypocritical men who criticize her morals.

She tweeted: "Lol dudes will scream 'slob on my k***' word for word and crying [about] WAP... bye lil boy."

"Slob On My K***" is a 1999 song by Oscar award-winning rap group Three 6 Mafia about oral sex.

CeeLo sparked controversy on social media when he called out Cardi B and Megan for their immoral, shameless behavior in the video.

"A lot of music today is very unfortunate and disappointing on a personal and moral level," CeeLo said in an interview with Far Out magazine.

CeeLo recalled the days when singers and hip-hop artists used metaphors and analogies to prevent youngsters from deciphering adult content in their music.

"There was once a time when we were savvy enough to code certain things. We could express to those it was meant for with the style of language we used. But now music is shameless, it is sheer savagery."

He continued: "It's problematic, we suffer from it because there are those that have nothing to do with it, but it is assumed of everyone. You have the 'Heads of State,' like Nicki Minaj or someone who is up there... Nicki could be effective in so many other constructive ways, but it feels desperate.”

CeeLo targeted Cardi and Megan for focusing on attention-seeking and social media likes than making good music.

"A lot of music today is very unfortunate and disappointing on a personal and moral level," CeeLo said in an interview with Far Out magazine.

CeeLo recalled the days when singers and hip-hop artists used metaphors and analogies to prevent youngsters from deciphering adult content in their music.

"There was once a time when we were savvy enough to code certain things. We could express to those it was meant for with the style of language we used. But now music is shameless, it is sheer savagery."

CeeLo continued: "Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, they are all more or less doing similar salacious gesturing to kinda get into position. I get it, the independent woman and being in control, the divine femininity and sexual expression. I get it all." He added bold feminine sexual expression "comes at what cost?."

CeeLo also tapped OG rapper Nicki Minaj to step up and be the guiding light for female rappers who have lost their way.

"You have the 'Heads of State,' like Nicki Minaj or someone who is up there in accolade: success, visibility, a platform to influence. Nicki could be effective in so many other constructive ways, but it feels desperate," he said.

Cardi and Megan Thee Stallion dropped the video for their collaboration on Thursday, Aug. 6, featuring a variety of dancers including Normani, Mulatto, and Suki.

Jenner's appearance riled Cardi's fans, who demanded her removal in a Change.org petition that was launched over the weekend, labeling Jenner a "culture vulture".

But the "Bodak Yellow" star hit back on Twitter, insisting, "Not everything is about race."

Fans were tight that Normani and the other dancers were depicted as strippers while Jenner strolls down a hallway opening a door.

"Normani did ALL this and Kylie walked down the hall and opened a door. If that's not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most..." wrote one fan, prompting the hitmaker's response.

"Normani is one of the best female artist that dances like she dances her f**kin ass off!" Cardi wrote. "Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense? The best part of the song is the beat and hook, it what makes you want to shake your ass."

She continued: "Not everything is about race. Theres issues out here in the world that is about race and I preach all the time about. This is not about f**kin race."

"Why did I put Kylie on my music video? She treated my sister and daughter so lovely at her kid's bday party," Cardi insisted in a final tweet. "Travis (Scott, Kylie's ex) and Set (Offset, Cardi's husband) are real close and Kris Jenner have given me advice on certain things I ask for and her husband real cool with mine."

Sandrarose.com gave the music video 2.5 roses, but my readers gave it 0.5 roses -- usually reserved for music videos that belong in a dumpster.

Cardi B recruited up-and-coming rapper Megan Thee Stallion for her new track "WAP". Megan outshines Cardi on her own track (which isn't difficult to do).

The ladies exchange verses over a sample from Frank Ski's - "There's Some Whores in This House", as Cardi raps:

    Beat it up, nigga, catch a charge
    Extra large and extra hard
    Put this pu$$y right in your face
    Swipe your nose like a credit card

Cardi and Megan wear matching pastel colored lingerie while touring a Miami modern-style whore house featuring rooms with strippers, tigers, snakes, and raunchy X-rated art on the walls.

Oh, and Kylie Jenner makes a cameo appearance as one of the whores.

The song itself is typical Cardi B fare, bragging about her manufactured body and her skills in the bedroom wile struggling to ride the beat.

"I don't cook, I don't clean/But let me tell you, I got this ring," she raps.

Like she did for Beyonce, Megan will take this track to the top of the charts. Ironically, Megan, who was allegedly shot twice by her boyfriend Tory Lanez, raps about controlling her man. ("You can't hurt my feelings, but I like pain").

    "Gobble me, swallow me, drip down the side of me
    Quick, jump out before you let it get inside of me
    I tell him where to put it, never tell him where I'm about to be
    I run down on him before I have a nigga runnin' me (Pow, pow, pow)."

 

Megan totally outclasses Cardi and exposes her lyrical weaknesses on this track. I give this song 2.5 roses for Megan's stellar efforts to salvage this trash.

Megan Thee Stallion (left) limped into a studio to record a new track with Cardi B, weeks after she was shot in both feet, allegedly by rapper Tory Lanez.

Cardi B is hoping to replicate her collaboration success by teaming up with Megan on her latest track, titled "WAP."

The "Bodak Yellow" rapper has enjoyed modest success with tracks such as "Finesse" with Bruno Mars, "Motorsport" with Nicki Minaj and Migos, and "Girls Like You" with Maroon 5.

Cardi, 27, shared the cover art for the new tune on her social media page. The image shows her and Megan, 25, sporting matching updos and sticking their tongues out.

Offset has asked a judge to give his 4-year-old daughter Kalea, his surname in his ongoing paternity case with one of his baby mamas.

The 28-year-old Sagittarius is pictured above with his wife, Cardi B, their daughter, Kulture, and his daughter, Kalea.

The Migos rapper, real name Kiari Cephus, filed legal papers, obtained by TMZ, in a Fulton County, Georgia courtroom, requesting that his daughter take his last name Cephus.

Offset acknowledges he's the biological father of Kalea, who was born in 2015 to Nicole Marie Algarin. However, the single mom named the girl Kalea Marie Algarin, which does not sit well with the star, who wants his daughter's last name changed to his.

He is also requesting joint legal and physical custody of their daughter.

The move comes after Nicole, who goes by the stage name Shya L'amour, filed papers last October asking for more child support from the millionaire rapper.

Offset claims he is already paying enough support and says both parties should be financially responsible for their daughter.
