I’m Not Divorcing Offset To Attract Attention – Cardi B
Cardi B, a US rapper, has denied claims she sought to split from Offset, her husband whom she married three years ago, as a publicity stunt for a forthcoming project.
Earlier, the songstress had filed for divorce in superior court, Fulton County, Georgia. She also asked the court to award her primarily legal and physical custody of their 2-year-old daughter.
The 27-year-old staged an Instagram Live session on Monday, where she addressed the myths regarding her relationship.
She also refuted claims of not being in good terms with Offset’s mum.
“People were just flooding me with. ‘Oh, Offset got a girl pregnant.’ And this is where the s–t came from. Ain’t that about a b**ch. That’s why I’m telling y’all to stop believing,” the rapper said.
“I want to address another bulls–t that I heard. Another blogger claims that I am getting a divorce for attention. And it’s like, you think I’m going to pay a lawyer 20 thousand f–king dollars.
“They’re like, ‘I just find it so funny that Cardi is getting a divorce around this time she got a record called ‘Me Gusta’ out.’ First, of all, ‘Me Gusta’ is not even my record, it’s Anitta’s record.
“So I’m not even getting a huge piece of the song. I get along with his mother very well. You think I’m gonna do that to her son for attention. Why do I need attention?
“You don’t see I have millions of f**king followers? Do you see that I have the number one song in the f–king world? Why do I need attention? Why do I need stunts?”
Cardi B had previously opened up on the reason for her split from Offset, who is also a US rapper, saying: “I just got tired of arguing. I got tired of not seeing things eye to eye.
“When you feel like it’s not the same anymore before you actually get cheated on, I rather just be.
“Nothing crazy out of this world happened. Sometimes people really do f–king grow apart. I’ve been with this man for four years. I have a kid with this man.”
