We’re a few days out from a social media gaffe in which popular rapper Cardi B accidentally uploaded a topless image of herself to social media. That’s only the start of the story, however, as she then explained how the topless photo came to be and it happened while she was in bed with her ex, rapper Offset. Only now, it doesn’t seem as if “ex” is quite the word, as Cardi B bluntly explained.
In a new video Cardi B posted online, she’s seen drinking a beer and waxing on about what happened, noting two key things about her relationship with Offset. The first is that even when things are bad between the couple, who share a daughter together, she still thinks of him as her “best friend.” The second reason’s a little more blunt, but I’ll let you learn it from Cardi.
So, when people be saying I’ve been doing shit for attention and this and that, no. I’m just a crazy bitch. One day I’m happy, the next day I want to… teach your ass… then I dunno, it’s like I start missing. Like it’s hard not to talk to your best friend. You know what I’m saying? It's really hard not to talk to your best friend. It’s really hard to have no dick.
Imma make this very clear. Before I was a celeb I was crazy ass Cardi B.Same bitch ya saw on TV and on IG talkin' shit and doing crazy shit. I'm still that a lil bit more calm now but still the same. I don’t know why ya expect something different now. This ain’t Disney.
Regardless of Cardi B's own take on herself, relationships can be complicated. Offset and Cardi B jumped into one pretty quickly, dating in early 2017 and getting married in September of that year.
They then had a daughter together in 2018, with Cardi B revealing she was pregnant during a memorable episode of Saturday Night Live. They’ve been off and on in the time since, appearing together at some events and waffling back and forth about a decision to divorce. It’s pretty honest of Cardi B to just straight up explain what was happening and why she was in bed with Offset again after allegedly having split up.
Offset also allegedly got Cardi B her own Billboard from their daughter just a few days ago. So, if he's the mysterious "sir" behind the billboard, he’s certainly one for grand gestures and is still making an effort in his family’s life.
At the end of the day relationships are hard, co-parenting is hard, navigating a topless scandal in Hollywood is hard. Luckily, Cardi B’s been pretty frank about the latter, noting she was a stripper in the past and that people have seen her boobs plenty of times before.
There’s a lot going on in the rapper’s life right now, and frankly, 2020 has shown us that pretty much anything goes right now. We’ll update you if they officially get back together, particularly if it happens again on SNL.
