Cardi B Confirms Pending Divorce, Offset Holding on for Dear Life

A wise philosopher once said, “No man wants to be my ex.” And while many rap lyrics are empty boasts, Cardi B’s soon to be ex-husband seems hell-bent on proving her point. Last year, when Cardi announced that she was leaving Offset for cheating on her, he employed a series of publicity stunts to get her to stay. Fans of the couple also applied pressure, which resulted in the couple trying to work it out.

Well, it’s a year later, and Cardi has decided to call it quits completely. The divorce, which is being contested by Offset, was confirmed when Cardi shared official documents of the proceedings. Poor Offset seems to be holding on for dear life.

The minute the split was announced, social media filled up with cautionary tales for women. People are acting as if cheating isn’t a conscious choice made by grown adults of both genders.

Some admonished young women about investing in beauty because it’s no guarantee in keeping a man happy. This troubling statement is both outdated and irrelevant.

A few Republican politicians, still sore from the popularity of Cardi’s hit song W.A.P., have been making fun of her. Others are citing the lyrics of the song and saying that the marriage is ending because Cardi “doesn’t cook or clean”.


This divorce is Cardi’s decision. She is the one filing for divorce. What’s more, this is the second time she has publicly decided to split from her husband. Both times Offset was the one clearly scrambling and confused that his actions had caught up with him.

The lack of accountability is loud here. Offset, being of sound mind, has been accused of cheating on Cardi B several times. Apparently, they have been arguing a lot recently. There’s even a comical video of Offset floating around where he hides his phone when he believes Cardi is about to walk into the room. Why aren’t there as many piercing rebukes of his behavior? Don’t cheat on your wife. Don’t lie to your wife. Respect your wife. This is the sort of real, helpful, relevant advice that can actually help people to keep their relationships together. But commentators don’t seem to want to be helpful. They seem to want to be ridiculous instead.Women are expected to carry the weight of their romantic relationships and are vilified when they buckle. No matter who actually initiates the breakup, a misogynist world will still boil all the relationship’s issues down to “she can’t keep a man”. Even women who chose to remain
