Another hip-hop love story has come to an end. As reported by Hollywood Unlocked, the site has confirmed that Cardi B, born Belcalis Almanzar has filed a petition in Georgia’s Fulton County Superior Court to dissolve her marriage to Migos rapper Offset, whose real name is Kiari Cephus, on Tuesday.
They are due in court on Nov. 4. Cardi is asking for custody and child support.
The two rap stars share a daughter, Kulture, who turned 2 in July.
Cheating rumors have dogged the couple throughout their relationship. They started dating possibly in 2016. Most didn’t know the two had even married until Cardi told the world while she was pregnant in 2018.
By year’s end, Cardi said they were breaking up, but the couple was together onstage at the Grammys in 2019 when Cardi, 27, won her award for Best Rap Album for Invasion of Privacy.
The two have publicly spoken about their tumultuous relationship. In December 2019, Cardi told Vogue that she and Offset, 28, were working on their relationship despite his infidelity.
“When me and my husband got into our issues—you know, he cheated and everything—and I decided to stay with him and work together with him, a lot of people were so mad at me; a lot of women felt disappointed in me,” Cardi told the magazine.
“But it’s real-life shit. If you love somebody and you stop being with them, and you’re depressed and social media is telling you not to talk to that person because he cheated, you’re not really happy on the inside until you have the conversation. Then, if you get back with them, it’s like, how could you? You let all of us down. People that be in marriages for years, when they say till death do us part, they not talking about little arguments like if you leave the fridge open.”
