Cardi B filed for divorce from husband Offset, just days shy of what would have been their third wedding anniversary.
News of the filing by the “WAP” singer in Fulton County, Georgia ― where she and the Migos rapper live ― bubbled up on social media on Tuesday.
HuffPost confirmed the filing posted on Twitter is legitimate. The duo’s court hearing is set for Nov. 4.
Representatives for Cardi B said via email that she has “no comments or statements at this time,” while representatives for Offset did not respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.
The couple has had a publicly tumultuous relationship over the years, breaking up in 2018 just months after the birth of their daughter, Kulture, and getting back together in 2019.
After meeting in 2016, Cardi B and Offset reportedly started dating the following year with their first date being at the Super Bowl. Cardi B announced she was pregnant to the public in April 2018. A few months later, Cardi B gave fans another revelation: She confirmed that she and Offset, born Kiari Kendrell Cephus, had secretly married on Sept. 20, 2017, in Fulton County.
Of the ultra-private nuptials, she wrote on Instagram in 2018 that she wanted it to be a moment “to keep for myself!”
“Our relationship was so new breaking up and making up and we had a lot of growing up to do but we was so in love we didn’t want to lose each other,” Cardi B wrote.
“I said I do, with no dress no make up and no ring!” she added.
On her married life, Cardi B spoke candidly to Vogue at the end of 2019 and talked about Offset’s history with infidelity.
“When me and my husband got into our issues — you know, he cheated and everything — and I decided to stay with him and work together with him, a lot of people were so mad at me; a lot of women felt disappointed in me,” she told the publication. “But it’s real-life shit. If you love somebody and you stop being with them, and you’re depressed and social media is telling you not to talk to that person because he cheated, you’re not really happy on the inside until you have the conversation.”
More recently, the 27-year-old told Elle magazine that her marriage “has a lot of drama and everything.”
“But there’s a lot of love, there’s a lot of passion, there’s a lot of trust, there’s a big friendship. It’s always us against the world,” she said in an interview published in August.
