Cardi B files for divorce from Offset, 3 years after marriage
The rapper, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, filed a divorce petition in Fulton County, Georgia, on Tuesday, requesting an end to her marriage to the Migos rapper, whose real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus.
According to the petition, Cardi B wants legal and primary physical custody of the couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Kulture. She is also seeking an equitable division of their marital assets as well as for Offset to pay both child support and all of her legal fees from the divorce.
It adds that the couple are living in a “bona fide state of separation” and that their marriage is “irretrievably broken”.
There are “no prospects for reconciliation”, according to the filing.
A divorce hearing has been set for 4 November at 10am.
This is not the first time the pair have split up, with Cardi B posting on Instagram in 2018 that they were no longer together. However, they later made up.
In December 2018, Cardi introduced Kulture to the world on Instagram, the same day she announced that she and Offset were no longer in a relationship.
Offset says he misses Cardi B, as his alleged mistress atones for role in split
In a (since-deleted) Instagram video, Cardi said that she and Offset had been trying to make their relationship work, to no avail.
“It’s nobody fault,” she said. “I guess we just grew out of love, but we are not together anymore. I don’t know, it might take time to get a divorce and I’m going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father.”
The announcement came in the midst of a tearful video statement from model Summer Bunni in which she apologized for coming between the couple.
