Last week, rumors were flying that Cardi B canceled a show due to a seizure. After a stint in the Dominican Republic, Cardi took to IG Live to clear the rumors.
Cardi took so long to address her fans that rumors were swirling that she canceled her dates to deal with health concerns. Alleging that her buttshots had began leaking, many believed she was in the Dominican Republic to have work done. Some have gone so far as to say that Cardi does suffer from seizures and the unidentifiable substance her butt is filled with causes them.
In an IG Live stream, Cardi revealed that she had her work done to compete with fellow dancers. Having paid only $800 and having the procedure done by an unlicensed woman, Cardi is bound to need reconstructive surgery at some point.
“I have migraines”
We already know Cardi B to be an unreliable source of telling the whole truth. She’s kept her marriage to Offset secret, she kept the news of her pregnancy secret. Although Cardi loves the spotlight, she does not want people in her business. So her claim of suffering from migraines was a little suspicious. In her live stream, she said:
“Everyone knows that I suffer from migraines and stuff. So I had a migraine for like 4 days. And the reason why I had a migraine for 4 days is because every single day I was running on 3 -4 hours of sleep. Sometimes I would go 24 hours without sleeping. After I gave birth, two weeks after, I’ve been working nonstop.”
Despite her excuse, Cardi B appears to be suffering from postpartum depression.
“I just felt overloaded”
After a comment Cardi B left on Tanisha Thomas’ post, it’s clearer that her struggle is deeper than a few extended migraines.

8 months down and a whole lifetime to go! Motherhood is simultaneously the most rewarding and challenging role ever. I no longer can bottle up what I’ve been battling with as I’ve come to the realization that my truth will set me free…. I had no idea post-partum would hit me this hard. And honestly may have been in denial for a while until my Anxiety got so intense I could barely sleep, eat or attempt to live up to the mom I always knew I would be. This is incredibly hard for me to even acknowledge as I’ve always been one tough cookie that pushed through anything. And of course coming from a West Indian background, this type of stuff often gets swept under a rug… However Today I’m choosing to stand in my truth. Realizing that real progress is not trying to calm the storms, but finding a way to calm myself. I am determined to make peace with my past so that it stops interfering with the present, and look forward to overcoming this hurdle so I can finally be at peace. There is something so powerful about acceptance, accountability and resilience. Just when I thought God was done making me over…he has plans to make me even greater! And I look forward and welcome the transition. After all my Prince is the greatest Motivation ? Much love and respect to everyone battling things they can’t even speak about. One day at a time! You got this! WE got this ??? #MommyChronicles #Thewholetruth #postpartum #MommyBlogger
“I’m still going through postpartum. shit is annoying.. just when you think [its] done, here comes the anxiety!”
Postpartum depression occurs soon after giving birth and can continue for more than a year after birth. Some women can experience PPD up to 3 years after delivery. With symptoms ranging from insomnia to intense irritability to low self-esteem, Cardi has her work cut out for her. Given her attachment to social media, maybe a break is what she needs.
After Coachella, it was announced that she would be canceling her tour dates for the remainder of the year. It seems the stress of PPD has now forced her to clear her schedule for the next two weeks as well. Pushing back long awaited video shoots for songs from her Invasion of Privacy album, Cardi is under close observation. Offset has even restricted her access to her cell phone to keep her from arguing in comment sections.
What do you think? Do you think Cardi is being honest or is she lying to her fans? Either way, we wish her a speedy recovery.
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!
On Tuesday singer-songwriter and “American Idol” winner Fantasia Barrino took to social media to reveal that she is having a baby girl, her first child with husband Kendall Taylor.
In a series of Instagram stories, Fantasia showed pink fireworks being shot off during a gender reveal party, to her and her hubby’s excitement! She continued by sharing what her daughter-to-be’s name will be: Keziah London Taylor.
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.
