Rapper Cardi B files for divorce after three years of marriage
After three tumultuous years of marriage, superstar rapper Cardi B filed for divorce from her husband, rapper Offset, according to court records. Cardi B, real name Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, married the Migos singer Offset, real name Kiari Cepheus, in a secret ceremony in September 2017.
"We got a lot of love for each other but things just haven't been working out between us for a long time," she said in a December 2018 video on Instagram, where she has some 75.5 million followers. "It's just like, I guess we just grew out of love, but we're not together anymore."
But by about a year later the pair had reconciled and Cardi B told Vogue at the time that the split over husband's infidelity is over. "We have come to a clear understanding. For me, monogamy is the only way," she said.
Cardi B is seeking custody of 2-year-old daughter Kulture and child support from Offset, whose real name is Kiari Cephus.
A hearing is set for November 4, according to the Fulton County court in Georgia, which is Offset's home state.
Despite the turmoil in her personal life, Cardi B has rocketed to success from her humble origins in New York's Bronx. Her 2017 hit Bodak Yellow brought her fame, and 2020 chart-topper WAP brought her controversy.
