Written by on September 19, 2020
The “WAP” rapper hopped on Instagram Live on Friday (Sept. 18) to thank her fans for “all the love and prayers” they’ve been sending her. “However, I don’t really need it. I’m okay,” she added. “I wanted to let y’all know I have not shed not one tear.”
“Every single time that this guy has been so crazy, so f—ed up and it hits the media, I’m always crying, always sad because I don’t like that type of s—,” Cardi continued. “This time, I wasn’t crying. You want to know why? The reason for my divorce is not because of none of that s— that ever happened before. It’s not because of cheating. I’m seeing people be like, ‘Oh, he has a baby on the way.’ That’s a whole f—ing complete lie. That’s the second time people are trying to pin babies over here. No, that’s bulls—.”
I just got tired of f—ing arguing,” she admitted. “I got tired of not seeing things eye to eye. When you feel like it’s just not the same anymore, before you actually get cheated on, I’d rather just leave.”
Cardi also clarified that she did not file for divorce as a publicity stunt for her upcoming album. “Nothing crazy out of this world happened, sometimes people really do grow apart,” she shared. “I been with this man for four years. I have a kid with this man, I have a household with this man…sometimes you’re just tired of the arguments and the build up. You get tired sometimes and before something happens, you leave.”
Cardi B filed for divorce from Offset on Tuesday (Sept. 15) after being married for three years, according to the Fulton County Magistrate in Georgia. The court documents obtained by Billboard indicate that Cardi is asking the court to award her primarily legal and physical custody of their child. Their hearing is scheduled for Nov. 4 at 10 a.m.
