Cardi B Explains Why She Backed Out of Her Divorce With Offset: ‘i Begged Him to Stop’
It hasn’t been easy all the time. Cardi B has talked about why she chose to stay with Offset even though she almost broke up with him a few years ago.
The rapper, who has two children with the Migos member and whom she married in 2017, famously filed for divorce from her husband in September 2020.
In a sneak peek of her upcoming interview on “The Jason Lee Show,” the singer of “WAP” talked about how her relationship with Offset, whose real name is Kiari Cephus, was rocky at first.
“Offset and I didn’t see things the same way,” the 30-year-old rapper said. “I got divorced and everything else happened the same year.” She continued, “I’m going to let him talk about this because that was the main thing that was bothering me.”
“I want him to say it because I think it’s an important part of his story.” Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almánzar, said her husband had changed and that their relationship was better than ever.
“He stopped and changed, and that showed me that he wanted to change for me,” she said. Cardi filed for divorce for the first time in September 2020. In 2017, they got married, and in 2018, their daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, was born.
Before she asked to have her divorce petition against Offset thrown out in November 2020, the “Up” rapper said she wanted to end things for a short time.
In an audio clip posted to Twitter, she said, “I didn’t want to talk about my relationship stuff because I know you’re sick and tired of me going back and forth with Offset.”
“You sound f—ing crazy when you start using the word “abusive.” I’m not married to someone who hurts me physically. I’m not in a relationship with someone who hurts my mind. “I have a lot of choices.”
From the start, things have been rough between them. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper called Offset out in public for cheating on her several times while they were married, but she chose to stay with him.
Offset and Cardi’s second child, a son named Wave Set, was born on September 4, 2021.
