Cardi B to split with hus­band

Global Times - - LIFE -

US rap­per Cardi B on Wed­nes­day an­nounced the end of her 15-month mar­riage to Off­set, the rap­per and fa­ther of her daugh­ter, drop­ping a video with the news on In­sta­gram.

“It’s no­body’s fault it’s just like I guess we grew out of love,” says the 26-year-old, whose real name is Bel­calis Al­man­zar.

“We’re not to­gether any­more. I don’t know, it might take time to get a divorce.”

Ear­lier this year, she con­firmed re­ports that the pair had se­cretly mar­ried in Septem­ber 2017. Their daugh­ter, Kul­ture, was born in July.

The sep­a­ra­tion rev­e­la­tion comes two days be­fore Cardi B is due to ap­pear in a New York court over as­sault and reck­less en­dan­ger­ment charges. She had been ex­pected to ap­pear on Mon­day, but failed to turn up.

The case stems from an Au­gust strip club brawl, which celebrity web­site TMZ said Cardi B or­dered to tar­get two bar­tenders – sis­ters who ac­cuse her of har­bor­ing a grudge be­cause one of them slept with Off­set.

“We’ve got a lot of love for each other but things just haven’t been work­ing out be­tween us for a long time,” says Cardi B in the video. “I’m go­ing to al­ways have a lot of love for him be­cause he is my daugh­ter’s fa­ther.”

Cardi B was in the Queens strip club on Au­gust 29 while Off­set was per­form­ing in the hard-liv­ing hip hop trio Mi­gos when some­one in her group lobbed fur­ni­ture, bruis­ing an em­ployee in the legs.

Cardi B has be­come one of the big­gest new stars in US mu­sic since the ru­n­away suc­cess last year of her song “Bo­dak Yel­low,” which touches on her for­mer life mak­ing ends meet as a strip­per.

A Bronx na­tive, she is the first fe­male rap­per to have had mul­ti­ple No.1 songs on the Bill­board Hot 100 chart.

She was also in­volved in a fra­cas with fel­low rap­per Nicki Minaj at New York Fash­ion Week in Septem­ber, later tak­ing to In­sta­gram to say that the older Minaj had ques­tioned her par­ent­ing skills.
