According to this, Cardi B has filed for divorce from her husband Offset after three years of wedded bliss. Apparently, her WAP is no longer WA. (Props and also condolences if you understand that reference.)
Can we just pause for a moment and mourn the fact that we live in a culture where that entire first paragraph is a reality? One of the most vile, vulgar, disgusting creatures on the planet is divorcing a dude called Offset. And the worst part? THEY HAVE A CHILD, you guys. They actually bred.
(Side note: Their real names are Belcalis Almanzar and Kiari Cephus, which is not particularly important but of mild interest).
Anyway, their daughter is named Kulture. Kulture is two. And Cardi B wants primary physical and legal custody of Kulture. She also wants child support, although the amount she’s looking for hasn’t been revealed in public documents. Cardi B’s own net worth is estimated to be around $24 million, because as we’ve said multiple times, we live in a culture that rewards horrible behavior. She is like the poster child for that.
Offset’s net worth is estimated to be $26 million. So between the two of them, they are FREAKING LOADED.
Still, money can’t buy happiness, and apparently Cardi B is sick and tired of her husband’s alleged infidelity. They almost split a couple years ago, but he groveled and she took him back. When she was asked about that in an interview with Cosmo back in April of 2019, she responded oh, so eloquently, as follows:
‘I know I look good, I know I’m rich, I know I’m talented. I know I could get any man I want — any basketball player, football player. But I want to work out my s— with my man, and I don’t got to explain why. I’m not your property. This is my life … I’m going to take my time, and I’m going to decide on my decision. It’s not right, what he f***ing did — but people don’t know what I did, ’cause I ain’t no angel.’
You don’t say. I would have never guessed that she wasn’t an angel when this is how she speaks. Out loud. In public. Shamelessly.
WARNING: THIS IS ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING AND YOU CANNOT UNHEAR IT.
Now, in response to the people who will inevitably say, “Why are you writing about this – no one cares about Cardi B” let me just remind you that THIS IS WHO JOE BIDEN CHOSE to do a nice long sit-down interview with when he first began to emerge from his basement. This is who Joe Biden felt would be a good person to have a political conversation with. And don’t forget, Bernie Sanders did the same.
This is who Democrats cling to in order to appeal to their base. Which gives you an idea of who their base is. Which should make you that much more determined to be the exact opposite of that base.
I’m not saying that I hope the Cardi B and Offset divorce is as ugly as Johnny Depp’s and Amber Heard’s, but I’m not NOT saying it, either.
