American Rapper Cardi B Files For Divorce From Offset After Three Years Of Marriage



Cardi B has filed for divorce from rapper husband Offset, describing their marriage as “irretrievably broken”.

The couple tied the knot in September 2017 and have a two-year-old daughter, Kulture.

Court records show Grammy-winning hip-hop star Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, filed for divorce in Georgia on Tuesday.

The couple are living in a “bona fide state of separation,” court documents state, and the marriage is “irretrievably broken”.

And there are “no prospects for a reconciliation,” the papers say.

Cardi B, 27, is asking for “primary physical custody” of Kulture and requests Offset, whose real name is Kiari Cephus, contributes to the child’s “support and maintenance”.

The now former couple have their marital home in Fulton County, Georgia, the legal papers state.

Cardi B and Offset married in secret.

Cardi and Offset wed on Sept. 20, 2017. However, their nuptial was not made public knowledge until she confirmed the following year in June. “There are so many moments that I share with the world and then there are moments that I want to keep for myself. Getting married was one of those moments!,” she said in a statement shared via Twitter on June 25, 2018. “Our relationship was so new breaking up and making up and we had a lot of growing up to do but we was so in love we didn’t want to lose each other.”

A few months after their one-year anniversary, on Dec. 4, 2018, Cardi B shared that she and Offset were parting ways. “So, everybody been bugging me and everything,” the Invasion of Privacy rapper said in the beginning of her 42-second Instagram video. “And you know, I been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now. And we’re really good friends and you know we’re really good business partners and 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.”

The couple later reconciled, but according to Cardi’s recent divorce filing “there are no prospects for a reconciliation” this time around as the marriage is “irretrievably broken.”


Offset, 28, is best known for performing with the chart-topping rap group Migos.
