Cardi B Files for Divorce from Offset
Rapper Cardi B, 27, has pulled the plug on her marriage to Offset, 28, after three years.
Cardi filed divorce papers in Atlanta on Tuesday.
In papers obtained by “Extra,” Cardi is requesting primary physical custody, as well as legal custody, of their daughter Kulture, 2.
Along with requesting “equitable division of all marital assets," Cardi is also asking Offset to “contribute to the minor child's support and maintenance," as well as pay her legal fees.
According to the papers, the marriage is "irretrievably broken" with no possibility of a reconciliation. The two are in a "bona fide state of separation."
A source told Us Weekly of their child, “Offset and Cardi both continue to put Kulture first through this troubling time.”
Hollywood Unlocked was the first to report the news, noting that it is a contested divorce.
A court hearing is set for Wednesday, November 4.
Just a few days before the split news broke, Cardi posted a cryptic Instagram Story with the quote, “Her heart finally told her to stop wasting her time.” She captioned the quote, “It's time.”
During their marriage, the pair have called it quits before. In 2018, Cardi said, “So everybody been bugging me and everything and you know I've been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now. We are really good friends and we are really good business partners — you know he's always somebody that I run to to talk to, and we got a lot of love for each other but things just haven't been working out between us for a long time.”
“It's nobody fault. I guess we just grew out of love, but we are not together anymore,” she continued. “I don't know, it might take time to get a divorce and I'm going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter's father.”
The following year, they reconciled. She told “Extra” during Super Bowl weekend, “We're working things out… work in progress.”
