Cardi B tweeted that she’s ‘turning up today,’ and she wasn’t lying. The “WAP” rapper, 28, has had enough with critics cla!ming she’s in a “men-tally abu*ive relationship” with husband Offset.
If you’re not a Bardig*ng member or in-the-know about the rappers’ latest relationship wo-es, here’s a quick update: Cardi filed for separation on September 15, spent her birthday PDA-ing with Offset in Las Vegas on October 13, and on October 15, she confirmed that they’re back together.
Her predictable announcement — that she took him back because she “missed” him —an*ered some fans and r!led up critics, who came at her on social media.
After seeing ne-gative comments about her relationship, Cardi recorded a 3-minute audio clip that de-lved deeper into the couple’s marriage. Take a listen:
“On some G sh-t, I didn’t even really want to talk about my relationship s–t because I know y’all s!ck and tired of me going back and forth with Offset. ‘Cause you know I’m just a cr*zy b—h,” she began. “My thing is, I just ha-te when people start using certain words too loosely, that it’s just like … y’all sound f–king crazy. When y’all start using the word abu*ive. I’m not in a phys!cally abu*ive relationship. I’m not in a me-ntal ab*sive relationship,” she said, noting, “I have choices.”
She continued, “When me and my n—a is going through some s–t, I’m not being tied down in a ba-rrel. I’m not being hara*sed with a hundred phone calls. If I need a bre-ak, I go to my other house. I’ve got like two houses in LA and a personal studio. I have a house in Atlanta. I have a house in New York. I could fly. I could do whatever I want,” Cardi declared. “If I take a bre-ak from my n—a and I decide to work things out, that’s regular relationship sh!t.If I want to go to an extreme to teach a n—a a f–king lesson and f–king file for separation I can do that.It’s my life,” she said, confirming, “I’m not getting no f*cking ab*se.”
Cardi went on to explain that her issues with Offset are typical of a normal relationship. “If we work things out, if we sit down and work things out and I tell a n—a what I don’t like, what I want to change. When he tells me what he wants me to change, what he wants me to stop doing, we could do that,” she said before asking, “Why y’all trying to make everything ab*se.” Telling critics to “chill,” Cardi continued, “Y’all be using words and terms [on] the internet. That s–t don’t even make sense. Y’all don’t even live with us. [Y’all] don’t know what the f–k we be talking about, y’all don’t know what the f–k we be going through.”
The Grammy-winner moved onto the h*t topic of her lavish birthday gifts from Offset — one of them being a new 2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan. “And then there’s like, ‘Oh, you taking back gifts.’ I’ma always get gifts. I’m a rich b—h. N—-s gonna always spo!l me. I’ma always gonna get spo!led. Even if I’m not with a n—a or when I’m with a n—a. I’ma always gonna get spo!led,” she said. Nonetheless, Cardi and Offset’s marriage isn’t all about material things. “Our relationship is not only about gifts and sh!t,” she clarified and re!terated once again that she’s “just spo!led.”
While Cardi really wanted a Ferrari for her 28th birthday, she admittedly settled for a Rolls Royce Cullinan. “… And let’s say me and my baby father are not together if he wants to give me a car for my birthday, why not? If you and your baby father not together and you’re a great mom and you’re a great b—h and he gives you flowers, you deserve that,” she explained. “But n—s want to give me a car, I’ll take it and I needed a mommy car. I have a mommy car in Atlanta. I have a mommy car back in Atlanta I needed something nice and smooth to ride in LA and that’s what he gave me. I really wanted a Ferrari, but if a n—a wanna give me a Cu-llinan, that’s it, that’s what I get,” she said.
Cardi clarified that Offset’s pricey gifts aren’t a free pass for sl*eping with him. “S–t, that doesn’t make me wanna f–k a n—a. I clearly spoke to him, I clearly, ok work things out, little by little, slower by slowly, day by day,” she said. “It’s cr*zy how I gotta give y’all an explanation cuz y’all wanna f–king make think pieces of the s–t that’s going on in my home. Y’all we!rd as h*ll,” she said, noting, “If it wasn’t, if that separation s–t didn’t go through the court y’all wouldn’t even know what the f–k was going on so please stop.” — That is true.Cardi only spoke about the couple’s spl!t after the separation news became public.

In a separate tweet to a fan, Cardi revealed that marriage counseling and couples therapy aren’t her styles. “I don’t need none of that sh!t,” she said. Instead, “I talk to God.” Cardi noted once again, that her relationship with Offset is “more than a bag and cars,” and that even before she received his gifts, “we started talking about our differences and what we gotta change.”So, it seems as though Cardi isn’t going to go through with her separation filing. As for Offset, he’s stayed silent throughout the drama — if you’re not counting the massive billboard he got for Cardi from him and their 2-year-old daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus.
