Cardi B Berates Ex Offset in Emotional IG Live

Be careful with speculation surrounding Cardi B and Offset‘s relationship.

The “WAP” rapper cleared the air about where she currently stands with her estranged husband after the two were spotted celebrating New Year’s Eve together in Miami. Shutting down rumors of a reconciliation, Cardi confirmed that she did go clubbing and get “d–ked down” by the Migos member—with whom she shares daughter Kulture, 5, and son Wave, 2—that night, though the pair are nowhere near the point of getting back together.

“The answer to getting back together is not a good night at the club and f–king the night long,” Cardi said on a Jan. 1 livestream on X, formerly known as Twitter, per footage circulating on social media. “We need to work on our s–t. We need to work on our communication. There’s things that he needs to work on, there’s things that I need to work on.”

The 31-year-old added that she and Offset, 32, happened to be at the same party on NYE and that it was initially “really awkward” to not be speaking to her ex.

“I’m in my section, he’s in his section,” Cardi recalled. “So it’s like, ‘Man, just f–king come over here. Let’s just chill. We’re having a good time.'”

However, Cardi said the couple—who have broken up and gotten back together since tying the knot in 2017—were arguing again the following day. “We’re at a point in our relationship where we’re testing the space,” she explained. “That’s why I’m saying that we’re not together until we work out our issues.”

Cardi continued, “If it goes well, then we will be back together. If it doesn’t go well, then it doesn’t go well, but I always want to keep the healthy relationship.”

The reunion came two weeks after the “Bodak Yellow” artist confirmed that she had called it quits with Offset, noting on Instagram Live she’s “been single for a minute now.”

“I wanna start 2024 fresh” she shared at the time. “I’m curious for a new life, for a new beginning.”

A Bump in the Road

The couple brought the heat to the Jingle Ball stage with a big smooch.  “Thank you husband. He’s so fine,” Cardi told the crowd. “That’s my baby daddy, yo.” However, just days later, Cardi announced they broke up after rumors of Offset’s infidelity spread across the internet. “I guess we grew out of love, but we’re not together anymore,” she explained on social media. “I don’t know. It might take time to get a divorce and I’m gonna always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father.”

Saying Sorry

Shortly after Cardi revealed their split, Offset took to Instagram with an emotional plea that he later featured on his Father of 4 debut studio album. “We’re going through a lot of things right now, a lot of things in the media. I want to apologize to you Cardi. I embarrassed you. I made you go crazy,” he said in the video. “I was partaking in activity that I shouldn’t have been partaking in, and I apologize. You know what I’m saying? For breaking your heart, for breaking our promise, for breaking God’s promise and being a selfish, messed up husband.”

A day later, he crashed her headlining performance at the Rolling Loud Festival in Los Angeles, complete with a cake and 2,000 white and red roses from Venus ET Fleur, worth $15,000, displaying the message, “Take Me Back Cardi.”

Giving Things Another Go

During the 2019 Grammys red carpet, Cardi and Offset not-so-subtly confirmed they were back on with some serious PDA. Offset later reiterated their progress during an appearance on The Breakfast Club, explaining, “You gotta go through steps and different things so that we can grow. Not on the TV though, real behind the scenes, getting to know each other, getting to know who you’re with and appreciate them all the way around. Because that one mistake made me appreciate her.”

Forgiveness

Cardi and daughter Kulture appear on the cover of Vogue in December 2019, where the rapper reflected on her husband’s infidelity. She told the magazine, “I believe in forgiveness. I prayed on it. Me and my husband, we prayed on it. We had priests come to us. And we just came to an understanding like, bro, it’s really us against the world. He has my back for everything, I have his back for everything, so when you cheat, you’re betraying the person that has your back the most. Why would you do that? We have come to a clear understanding. For me, monogamy is the only way. I’ll beat your ass if you cheat on me.”
