February 1st, Cardi B spoke with People to confirm she is working on her marriage. Despite fans best wishes, the rapper says, “it’s a personal thing” and her marriage is “not for them”.
We Were Rooting For You!
After the stunt Offset pulled during Cardi’s Rolling Loud performance, we thought they might really be done. Then, she started making videos about how she was dickmatized. Then, she was spotted in Puerto Rico riding jet skis and peen. Now, after months of fans hoping she would leave Offset to his extramarital activities to focus on her career, Cardi has taken him back.
When the couple began dating and then secretly married in September 2017, fans of the Migos rapper and Cardi hailed them as the new Beyoncé and Jay-Z. But Cardi says she just sees them as a regular couple.
“I feel like we just really are a very regular couple. We just do regular things. I feel like: We’re famous… we’re really popular right now — I just don’t know the obsession, like I feel like everything we do is a big deal. Even before the bad scandals, just from the first time they seen us together, it was just like this big crazy deal.”
Still, they wanted the scope of their fame to steer clear of their relationship.
The luxury of being a regular couple was lost a long time ago. Both Cardi and Offset helped see to that. They were very public with their issues. Cardi has a history of being easily provoked via social media. She responds to many of her detractors personally, sometimes through Instagram Live rants. Offset’s propensity for infidelity only amplified Cardi’s rage. Nevertheless, Cardi is right. Her marriage is her marriage.
Right now, Cardi says they are “taking things slow. We have a baby right now. That’s right our real big focus.” Their 6-month-old daughter, Kulture Kiari, has been at the center of Offset’s appeals to reunite their family. During the holidays and near his birthday, Offset pleaded for Cardi to receive him because he missed his daughter. But this umpteenth chance comes with a clause, Offset has no room to misbehave.
After admitting that he was “partaking in activity” he had no business doing, he “apologized” for breaking Cardi’s heart. Cardi has since come to her husband’s defense.
“People are so quick to be like, ‘You should just date somebody else.’ It’s like, Honey, I’m not like you — I’m famous. I gotta consider who I’m dating. I gotta make sure people will have me for me. And I have a kid… We are a package. It’s not just Cardi, it’s Cardi and Kulture.”
Will your fans accept you?
Cardi must understand fans may not stand by her decision. Both she and the Migos rapper stand to face a lot of scrutiny, especially after months of speculation that their split was a manufactured publicity stunt. She began and ended a relationship publicly, postured independence, and reneged on that perceived strength. Many onlookers were heavily invested in her making the choice they didn’t. Genuine or not, let’s hope Cardi and Offset can work things out and develop a healthy relationship. It can’t be easy to make choices like these with millions watching
Summer Bunni Releases A Diss
Trying to come up off the controversy surrounding her involvement as one of Offset’s many mistresses, Summer Bunni is grasping at relevancy by releasing a diss track aimed at Cardi B. The 20-year-old freestyled over Junior M.A.F.I.A’s “Get Money” and referenced taking Cardi’s man and giving him back.
Summer Bunni’s lyrics include the 3 way she was allegedly involved in with Offset, the fact that he paid her for sex, and their FaceTime conversation:
Bitch who the queen of the press shit / I heard you press bitch / You better check you press list / Pop pop on the big bad dummy / He want a 3 BITCH with the summer Bunni / Now since I’m hot I got all the haters / Now lemme add yeah I got all da paper / Back to clout I got respect for some rap niggas / Is you mad cause I fucked and gave em back nigga
Although Cardi did not respond directly to Summer Bunni’s diss, she did post a subliminal clapback on IG and Twitter.
Rolling Ray Undergoes Surgery After Wig Catches On Fire
Social media star Rolling Ray underwent surgery Tuesday morning to treat serious burns on his body after his terrible wig accident last week.
In a series of IG stories, he let his audience follow along as he prepped for surgery.
Last week Rolling Ray announced he was hospitalized after his wig caught on fire! During a January 13 Instagram Live session hosted straight from his hospital bedside, he showed his severely burnt and damaged face telling viewers his “whole skin, legs, arms, feet, and everything” were burned.
In a more recent Live, Ray explained the incident that led to his whole wig catching on fire: an unfortunate smoking accident. “It just, like, lit on fire when I tried to light the cigarette,” he recounted. “So I get to trying to snatch the wig off. B***h, the fire goes to my f*****g shirt, to my feet, to my legs, to my back. It’s a fire everywhere, it’s a fire in the whole room.”
Of course the internet trolled him in a disgusting display of ableism and heartlessness. Comments like “Rolling Ray should have stopped, dropped, and rolled” and “karma’s a b***h” had social media conflicted in its feelings about his accident. His sensation comes from his harsh and, often, below-the-belt reads (just last month he told Yung Miami to “dig (sic) up” her dead baby father. However, the criticism didn’t stop him from responding on Twitter.
Rolling Ray might be problematic as all get-out, but we do not tolerate ableism here. We wish him well as he heals.
Fantasia Reveals Gender of Baby On the Way!

The news comes after the couple revealed they had struggled to conceive since their 2015 marriage. During a November episode of her IG Live show “Taylor Talks,” she described continuously praying for a child with her husband. Fantasia, a deeply devout Christian, was obviously elated when she shared the news.
“God I Want To Thank You!” she said in an Instagram caption. “You Gave Us A Seed even when the Doctor said that one of my Tubes [was] Closed you said Different. @salute1st I Love You King and I can’t wait to see who He or She acts Like.”
We can see Fantasia and family are all super excited to be welcoming a baby girl into their lives. All congratulations to her.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are Getting Divorced, Report Says
In a story published Tuesday evening, Page Six is reporting that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting divorced, with the two already in settlement talks. The news comes after the couple spent the holiday season separately – Kanye at his ranch outside Cody, Wyoming, Kim and the kids with her famous family in southern California.
A source close to Kardashian was quoted saying, “Kim got Kanye to go up there so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done.” Kardashian, 40, and West, 43, are said to be splitting because of marital problems directly related to Kanye’s very public mental health struggles.
For several years the rapper’s various antics have caused fans to worry. After coming out as a Trump supporter, West then announced his own 2020 presidential bid under a new political party: the Birthday Party. At a campaign rally in South Carolina, he was seen rambling, debating individual audience members, and at times, crying. In various interviews, he has rambled on almost incoherently, and his tweetstorms are now infamous.
For her part, Kim has always supported her husband and has openly discussed the difficulties of their marriage. Back in June, she shared on social media, “Anyone who has [bipolar disorder] or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand… People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual (has) to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”
It appears she has finally reached her limit in the union with the unnamed source saying, “She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s**t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
Separately, a source close to Kanye alleges the rapper is sick of his wife and her family, which might have some truth to it since he has tweeted some pretty nasty things about them in the past. “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform,’” he said in a now-deleted July tweet. Recently, he hasn’t been featured on his wife’s Instagram and has largely remained out of the public eye.
With the news yet to be confirmed, the “divorce is imminent” reports are just rumors for now. We’ll be following the news as more information comes out.
