Cardi B has filed for divorce from Offset. They married quietly in 2017, and Cardi gave birth to their daughter Kulture in 2018. By the fall of that year, their marriage was in shambles – Offset was cheating on Cardi with multiple women, some of whom were telling their stories on social media or to blogs and media outlets. Cardi ended up splitting from Offset in December 2018, but then something awful happened: her fans, her family and her team all pressured her to take Offset back and give him another chance. He kept cheating, because of course he did, but Cardi seemed to make some attempts to repair the marriage and I think she genuinely cared about him and loved the way he supported her professionally. I mean, yes, he cheated on her constantly, but Offset legitimately adores her. From the outside looking in, Cardi seemed to have made her peace with his side chicks. Until she wasn’t cool with it anymore.
Cardi B is apparently over her marriage to Offset — she just filed for divorce … TMZ has learned. The rapper filed court docs in Georgia indicating she’s seeking a dissolution of marriage. Cardi is listed as the plaintiff and Offset is listed as the defendant. She filed the paperwork on Tuesday.
There’s also this … according to the court docs, obtained by TMZ, Cardi is seeking primary physical custody as well as legal custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Kulture. She also wants Offset to pay child support — unclear how much though at this point. No word on spousal support either, for now at least.
She also makes clear in her docs that they’re currently separated, and there’s no hope of working things out.
People Magazine confirms TMZ’s info and adds a new wrinkle: “The “WAP” rapper, 27, filed for divorce at an Atlanta courthouse on Tuesday, reportedly after finding out the Migos rapper, 28, had been unfaithful yet again, PEOPLE confirms.” Damn it, Offset. That man is not discreet in the least. Anyway, good for Cardi for finally saying enough is enough. I have a depressing thought though: I bet she kept her separation from Offset so quiet because she was worried that the people around her would try to manipulate her into taking him back. I’ve felt for a while that Cardi needs some better people around her, and maybe she’s coming to that conclusion too.

Good for her, she is setting a great example for her daughter. I made a very tough decision last year when it seemed like everyone in my life and societal expectation was telling me I shouldn’t be doing what I did. It was one of the most mature ‘adult‘ things I’ve ever done and has really changed me. Maybe this will also end up being a positive thing for Cardi and her daughter.
1000x. Curious about how it went down with lockdown? But then again there was that Instagram excuse a couple a month ago.
@Emma33 – I can completely relate to that too… Everyone in my life was in such disbelief about my ‘amazing’ marriage ending last fall that although they weren’t quiiiiiite trying to talk me out of it, I had to really put in a lot of time consoling others about it. They just didn’t want it to happen, though I had already reached the point of being resolute. Good for her (and for you too!) for making the hard, and maybe ‘unpopular,’ choice. It really is the best example for her daughter.
It’s been 8 months since I left my ex and my mom is still trying to get us back together!
I have not followed their relationship super closely, but it was always my impression that people were trying to talk her out of offset for a little bit. I thought she made that comment about trying to make things work with her man and people need to mind their own business, which I interpreted to mean that people were advising her to dump him. I feel bad for her, I do think she loved him and she’s hurt, and she probably feels stupid and some jerks are saying ‘I told you so.’ Maybe not. Maybe she knows she did her best. I thought they looked happy. I was so happy for them when they bought their Atlanta house! It must be hard to live out this sort of stuff so publicly
Same. Cardi’s happiness made me happy for her when she got that house. She is smart, talented and hilarious. That woman deserves better.
My guess is he put a baby is one of those side chicks
@bryn, my first thought too.
Good for her to leave and not wasting anymore time. Now find a man, not in his twenties with lots of money and fans and maybe she’ll find a faithful man (yeah khloe)
Slightly OT, so my sisters and I have been talking about who she should choose next as a partner. We always thought Offset was scum and Cardi can do better than that. Lol, let’s gossip about who is best for her. Sis said Michael B Jordan and I can kinda see it. Both young, black, beautiful and super successful in their careers. But I heard he’s conservative. I dunno how his fam would react to Cardi’s bombastic personality. Im going for Robert Pattinson. He was with FKA Twigs for years and they seem to make sense together. Twigs isn’t as out there as Cardi but she was interesting and different. I bet he’d love that. But he’s also older than her. And English.
Well, that is his thing.
I mean if a man had five kids with five different women, the writing is on the wall. I don’t know what she expected to happen.
What???? 5 kids???? I didn’t know that. Why would any woman get seriously involved with him? Cardi doesn’t need him or his money. Im shocked
@hatsumomogirly – Patterson didn’t defend Twigs from the racist bit of his fandom. I wouldn’t want a WOC going there at all. Cardi canbe single with a kid and enjoy her money.
Look at your future, Khloe K.
Good for her if he keeps on cheating. Khloe K and Beyoncé should follow her steps.
The blatant and PUBLIC cheating he already did,he cant get much worse.
Offset ain’t sh-t. Cardi deserves better. I was disappointed she took him back the first time. He’s clearly been cheating this whole time. Even during a pandemic. Maybe that was the final straw. It’s bad enough that he cheats but the possibility he could come back and infect Cardi, Kulture and all of her family in that house was probably the last straw.
I think she faced so much pressure to take him back, especially with all the public contrition bs he pulled. Glad she left him now although it probably a tough situation for the entire family.
i just can’t with messy relationships, so i applaud her for doing what’s best for her and her child.
She does not need him or his messiness
First, I doubt offset will be the one paying support, but that’s neither here nor there. I’ve never liked the performative “apologies” he made to Cardi in the past (interrupting HER award ceremony, giving gifts most likely bought with HER money – yuck). Get far, far away, girl, and for the time being- Chris Evans is apparently single?
I don’t like Offset but he has plenty of his own money. His group The Migos is very successful.
Eeeeh…i don’t think offset is struggling financially in any way. He found fame even before Cardi B entered the scene. Migos, his group, has had a very successful career in rap so far not to mention his own successful album last year and countless features. Offset is a big deal in the mumble rap scene, so he’ll be fine.
Oh, honestly neither artist is really my thing, so I stand corrected, then – thanks for the info!
That will hopefully complicate things less.
Yeah, that was awful when he ambushed her at her show.
What a surprise said no one.
So glad she left for good. His apology tour the first time he cheated was disgusting especially when he popped on stage at one of her shows like a creepy stalker. Do what’s best for you and kulture sis!
Omg, I forgot about the time he popped up on stage at her show. That is not healthy at all bc it shows he doesn’t respect boundaries at all. He has routinely shown he has no respect for her and that he was going to make everything about himself all of the time and would continue doing whatever he wanted to do.
Good for her!
I hope it sticks and she’s not once again manipulated into taking him back because for some reason people expect women to be these long suffering saints, the same not expected of men in dealing with problematic women.
Reminding me, today is trash day.
Kick him to the curb, Cardi.
Cheating is humiliating and hurtful enough,but to be so sloppy and obvious is another level of disrespect. Offset has been seen hiding his phone from her while he was playing games,he has slept with strippers that she used to work with. Ughh
Good for her. Cardi deserves better, and is setting a good example for her daughter.
Offset has always been trash and honestly, she’ll be better off without him. I’ll never forget her Grammy win(s) and how he tried SO hard to make her success about him. Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t he have the nerve to jump on stage with her? That was gross. I recall her looking a little taken aback by it. He’s been an embarrassment to her and himself. She seems to have showered him with love and money. He’s never been worth it.
Offset is dumb af to be cheating on THAT! Look at her! She’s hilarious and talented and beautiful and gave him a cutie patutie daughter. Good riddance. She is going to find a man that not only adores her but respects her too.
Cheating and lying to your partner is always a terrible betrayal. But I can’t help but wonder if he was being unfaithful during the pandemic? You risk infecting yourself and your wife and daughter. Pretty unforgivable.
This and he may have gotten someone pregnant since he appears to be careless and immature.
Offset already had like 3 different kids before cardi. I believe he’s not even 30 years old.
I can’t say cardi is the greatest musician of our generation but she’s much better off without him.
I will never understand in a million years why people stick with a known serial cheater in this day and age.
It’s not only psychologically unwise but healthy wise with so many diseases.
Now we have a cute little baby girl with her parents divorcing.
I cant help that baby was born in hope of taming a wandering peen.
That never ever works people.
Good for her! It’s a heartbreaking and also liberating realization that a cheater will never change.
I hope Cardi and Meg’s collaboration lead to real friendship. They are both really talented young women with good heads on their shoulders. Perhaps they can lean on each other for support instead of the people who have been betraying them so far.
At 26 he had four kids by 3 or 4 different women when he proposed to her. That’s a huge red flag. No, it’s a red parade.
Anyways, at least she can say she was once married.
Cardi, please move on for good. Everyone should stop pressuring her.
I’m willing to bet good money there is a baby coming .
I get a sense that she made peace with the fact that he would cheat but she could deal as long as he wasnt messy about it
A baby is a deal breaker
Oh my goodness, how DUMB does Offset have to be. Really…
But if someone thinks its ok to cheat they gonna cheat.
It has nothing to do with her and everything to do with him
I agree with the others who think he knocked up a side chick. F him, she can do better. Good for her on moving on.
Cardi is at the top of her game and got married instead of sampling other men. At least she tried to do it the right way and be in a committed relationship. Get out why you can
If I could do it again, I’d never pick someone who had “changed” or finally found the right person (me). Nope, nope and nope.
She’s such a cute little toddler!
That’s all I’ve got.
That’s all I had to say, too. Kulture is such a cutie!
Omg yes! I’m not a kid person but she is adorable
I give her credit for trying to keep her family together, but enough is enough. Kick him to the curb and enjoy being single.
Waiting for Kim and Kanye to divorce next
I’m glad she’s not tolerating his cheating anymore. It’s humiliating. I do not understand these cheating men. Yuck
You don’t cheat on someone you adore. He’s a POS.
“I mean, yes, he cheated on her constantly, but Offset legitimately adores her.” Isn’t it just the worst thing when this happens? When someone treats you like shit, but they also simultaneously make you feel so loved when they’re focusing on you? And it’s so aggravating how, they can care about you so much, but simultaneously just completely disregard your feelings entirely.
I know it won’t happen, but omg I’d love it if Beyoncé did the same. Jay ain’t shit.
