Back Together! Cardi B Explains Why She Reconciled with Offset
That was fast! Cardi B and Offset are back together weeks after the “Bodak Yellow” rapper filed for divorce.
Fans suspected the pair had rekindled their romance after they were spotted looking every bit the couple at her 28th birthday celebration last weekend in Las Vegas. He also gifted her with a Rolls-Royce truck and an $8,000 leather car seat for their daughter Kulture.
Cardi confirmed the reconciliation rumors on Instagram Live, getting emotional as she said, “I just be starting to miss [him]. It's hard not to talk to your best friend. And it's really hard to have no d**k.”
The “WAP” rapper went on to insist they are just like any young couple.
“We got married early… that's what we are, we not no different… than your dysfunctional-a** relationships. We are the same way.”
After filing for divorce in September, she told fans on Instagram Live, she was grateful for her fans' support, but, "I don't really need it. I'm okay. I want to let you know I have not shed one tear."
Stressing that nothing "crazy out of this world" happened, she said, "You just get tired of the arguments and the build-up. You get tired sometimes. And before something bad happens, before you get left, before you get cheated on, you sometimes you just want to leave. What is so bad about that?"
The couple is set to appear in court November 4 for divorce proceedings. In her papers, Cardi called their union "irretrievably broken."
Two years ago, Offset was accused of cheating after a video surfaced of an alleged liaison with another woman.
Amid cheating rumors, Cardi announced that they had split. In a now-deleted video, she 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,” Cardi 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.”
Offset went through great measures to win Cardi back, including crashing her set at the Rolling Loud Festival at the Banc of California Stadium in L.A. In a video, Offset also apologized to Cardi, saying, “I only got one birthday wish and that's to get my wife back Cardi. We're going through a lot of things right now, a lot of things in the media. I want to apologize to you Cardi. I embarrassed you. I made you go crazy."
Offset acknowledged his behavior, saying, “I was partaking in activity that I shouldn't have been partaking in, and I apologize. You know what I'm saying? For breaking your heart, for breaking our promise, for breaking God's promise and being a selfish, messed up husband. I'm trying to be a better person. I want to get this off my shoulders. I want to get this off my back. I apologize to you Cardi. I love you."
The pair reconciled in early 2019. She told “Extra” during Super Bowl weekend, “We're working things out… work in progress.”
Cardi B and Offset wed in a secret ceremony in September 2017, and welcomed Kulture in July 2018.
