Cardi B, 27, has filed for divorce from rapper husband Offset in family court in Fulton County, Georgia after just three years of marriage. An initial hearing was set for November 4, 2020.
Cardi B and the Migos musician Offset married secretly in September 2017 and now have a 2-year-old daughter, Kulture. Court records obtained by the PA news agency shows Grammy-winner hip-hop star Cardi B (real name is Belcalis Almanzar), filed papers for divorce in Georgia on Tuesday.
The couple is living in a “bona fide state of separation,” court documents state, and therefore the marriage is “irretrievably broken”. And there are “no prospects for reconciliation.” Cardi B, is asking for “primary physical custody” of daughter Kulture and requests Offset (real name is Kiari Cephus), contributes to the child’s “support and maintenance”. Now the former couple has their marital home in Fulton County, the legal papers state.
Cardi B and Offset married secretly, not revealing the news until a year after they walked down the aisle. Their relationship seemed to get on the rocks amid rumors of his cheating and Offset took to the stage at Cardi B’s Rolling Loud concert in 2018 to ask for forgiveness. Offset, 28, is best known for performing with the chart-topping rap group Migos. Cardi B is asking for the couple’s assets to be split evenly.
