Well I would be lying if I said I was shocked by it, but I definitely gave them more than a year in my head. I love Cardi, but unfortunately I had reservations about Offset since he got caught cheating on her the first time before they were even married. Or so we thought; it turned out they’d been married in secret since last September. But I digress.
For those who have been under a rock, welcome back to the world of social media. Cardi B made an announcement on her Instagram just last week stating that her and her husband Offset had officially broken up. Not long afterwards followed a picture of their beautiful baby Kulture, which she chose to reveal to the world for the very first time. Cardi insisted that she and Offset had been trying to work things out for a little while now, and that they just fell out of love. However she did also say that they still maintain a great friendship, and that she still has a lot of respect for him as he is her child’s father, and he taught her a lot about the music industry.
However nobody is buying that the reason for their split is that they simply fell out of love. Pretty much everyone tuned into this story is aware that it’s really down to Offset’s continuous infidelity. Some leaked text massages came to light just a few days apart from Cardi’s announcement, which shows Offset trying (incredibly hard by the sounds of it) to organise a threesome with a female rapper and her friend. The rapper is one of the many something-Dolls out here (eg. Kash Doll, Asian Doll), aka not on Cardi’s level. As in, she’d have to jump into several elevators just to get anywhere near her level.
To make matters worse, one of the girls did an interview with TMZ just after Cardi made her announcement, crying and insisting that she “didn’t know how serious Cardi & Offset’s marriage was” and even that she hopes they get back together. Oh bitch please. Don’t get me wrong, I am one of those people who always blame the guy in this situation and not the girl, as he is the one who is supposed remain faithful. If this girl is not a friend, family member or somebody I see on a regular basis, then I don’t expect any loyalty from you anyway, so I wouldn’t hold you accountable. However, please don’t come forward and act like you give a shit about my marriage, because you clearly don’t. You were all ready to take the side chick position without any complaints, so please stay in your lane and keep your crocodile tears and fake well wishes to yourself.
*deep sigh. Anyway, since the announcement, it seems like Cardi is truly done. And who can blame the girl? I know that unfortunately most men are going to slip up occasionally, especially when they live the crazy life of a star like Offset. I mean, if Jay-Z can cheat on Beyoncé, the Queen herself, then it can happen to anyone. But if you’ve cheated on me once (which he did, last year) and I give you a second chance, but then you do it again after barely a year, it’s now starting to look like a pattern. I’m not here for that; at the end of the day, if I know my worth and I know I deserve better, why should I stay with somebody who has proven to me more than once that he can’t be faithful?
Now I’m not saying Cardi shouldn’t take him back. At the end of the day, there’s clearly love there and they have a beautiful baby daughter. So I completely understand that she has her family to think about, as well as herself. Cardi even made a video a couple of days ago asking the internet trolls to lay off Offset (that was weird to type). In this video, she made the very good point that she could find another man who’s rich, successful, good-looking and all the rest of it, but he still won’t love her daughter as much as Offset. Now this is an incredibly good point, and very true. But I do think she deserves someone to love her the way she deserves. So if Offset can’t do that, then she should find someone who can. However I also acknowledge that he’s a young man at the peak of his career, and it can be easy to fall prey to temptation in the midst of all the glitz and glamour. So perhaps the two of them can work things out in time.
My real issue is all the people (mainly men, of course) on social media that are encouraging Cardi to take Offset back on the basis that “all men cheat”. I’m sorry, but this is some bullshit. I guess I get what some of them are ultimately trying to say, which is that most men cheat, so why get rid of someone that you really love just to replace them with a man who is probably going to do the same thing. I guess I can kind of see their point. However, there is absolutely no sense in me weakening myself just because the majority of males share the same transgressions. The issue is those men and their infidelity, so why should I have to be the one to be accommodating? Not to mention, this is a complete double standard, because anytime a woman cheats on a man she is considered trash, and you wouldn’t have scores of women telling men to just put up with it. Anyway, the aim is certainly not to get with a man who’s going to do the same shit. If it were, I would agree with the fact that breaking up with a cheater would just be redundant. The aim is to find someone much better than my last, one who hopefully won’t do the same things and will treat me in the way I deserve. If it turns out that this isn’t the case, then it’s onto the next one. Simple as that.
Anyway, these are simply my thoughts and opinions. I am still very much a part of the Bardi Gang, so as she keeps bringing that fire and making schmoney moves, I will continue to support her.
