Cardi B and Offset have for a long time been considered as #Power Couple goals. However, the fairytale seems to have come to an end as Cardi B filed for divorce.
Cardi B’s lawyers filed the divorce papers on Tuesday in Atlanta, Georgia -which is near the couple’s marital home. File under her real name, Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, Cardi B termed her marriage to Offset as “irrevocably broken.”
Cardi B also filed to have “primary physical custody” of their daughter, Kulture. However, the WAP hitmaker has directed her lawyers to change it into a joint custody agreement with Offset. She also asked that Offset provide child support, though the amount she’s asking for is unclear.
The court documents state that there are no prospects of reconciliation. The documents add that Cardi hopes the divorce will be settled by agreement by both parties.
It is reported that Offset’s infidelity was the reason Cardi decided to call it quits. According to a source from People: “Offset has pretty much cheated the entire time but Cardi looked the other way because of the baby. She also didn’t want to be embarrassed. But she’s had enough.”
Cardi previously accused Offset of infidelity in 2018, a few months after the birth of their daughter. After the singer declared that they had ‘grown out of love’ and were separated, Offset apologized publicly. In a post on his Instagram account, the rapper wrote: ‘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. I was partaking in an 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. He added: ‘I’m trying to be a better person….. I apologize to you, Cardi. I love you.’
The couple later made up and started showing up together at social events. Offset even walked to the stage as Cardi received her 2019 Grammy for Best Rap Album.
Cardi B and Offset, whose legal name is Kiari Cepheus, got married in a secret ceremony in September 2017. The divorce hearing has been set for 4th November at 10 AM.
