Cardi B and Offset began their romance in 2017 and quickly became one of entertainment’s hottest couples. They were frequently seen in public together, birthed a daughter named Kulture, and even collaborated on Migos’ smash hit “Motorsport”. Although Offset provided Cardi a public engagement proposal during a show in Philadelphia, the two were married in secret in Sept. of the same year, according to Billboard

After a year of marriage, the two separated, with many speculating it was due to Offset’s alleged infidelity. The two had seemed to patch things up, but this was proven not to be true after Cardi filed for divorce on Sept. 15. According to Vanity Fair, Cardi described the marriage as “ “irretrievably broken” and is seeking custody of their daughter.

However, on Sept. 18, Cardi shared some shocking truths about her relationship with Offset.

Cardi claims she has not shed a single tear since filing

On Instagram Live, thousands of fans tuned in to hear Cardi speak on her marriage. Although countless viewers offered their support and condolences, the rapper said that she didn’t need it. 

“I’ve seen all the love and prayers that you guys have been sending me, however, I don’t really need it,” Cardi said, according to Billboard. “I’m okay. I wanted to let y’all know I have not shed not one tear.”

The two are not getting divorced because of cheating

Although rumors about Offset’s alleged infidelity have been running rampant since the start of their relationship, Cardi expressed that the divorce is not a result of that. There is speculation that Offset impregnated another woman and is expecting a child, but she quickly cleared that up, according to.

“The reason for my divorce is not because of none of that s— that ever happened before. It’s not because of cheating,” she said. “I’m seeing people be like, ‘Oh, he has a baby on the way.’ That’s a whole f—ing complete lie.

Cardi didn’t file for divorce as a publicity stunt

Apparently, people have been circulating the notion that Cardi and Offset were breaking up as some kind of promotional strategy. The “Bodak Yellow” also addressed the claims she was using the divorce for publicity, according to Vibe.

“I’m not doing it for clout and on top of that I don’t need stunts to sell music,” she said. “I’m not [trying to] brag but don’t ever say I’m doing anything for clout. My first album is three-times platinum and I didn’t need no stunts to do that. My [“Wap”] single is no. 1 worldwide why would I need stunts to sell music? I don’t need stunts — [especially] when it comes to family — to sell anything, so don’t play yourself.”

The two are getting a divorce because they’ve simply grown apart

While there is ongoing speculation about the real reasons why the two are parting ways, Cardi kept things simple, stating that it was because she got tired of arguing with Offset.

“I just got tired of f—ing arguing,” she stated. “I got tired of not seeing things eye to eye. When you feel like it’s just not the same anymore, before you actually get cheated on, I’d rather just leave.”

He added that the two grew apart over time, and felt it was best to leave before something happened. 

“Nothing crazy out of this world happened, sometimes people really do grow apart,” she claimed. “I been with this man for four years. I have a kid with this man, I have a household with this man…sometimes you’re just tired of the arguments and the build up. You get tired sometimes and before something happens, you leave.”

Despite the drama, is Cardi continuing to see massive success with her hit record featuring Megan Thee Stallion, “WAP,” which returned to the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
