In an Instagram video, Cardi let everyone know she’s single. The rapstress calmly said she’s done trying with her baby’s father.
Never once saying Offset’s name, Cardi let us know she’s free. We’d be lying if we said we didn’t see this coming. We’d also be lying if we said we weren’t happy for her. After more than a year of cheating scandals, Cardi has finally decided to let that man go.
How bad was their romance? Let’s dig in.
Just hours before Cardi took to IG, rumors were swirling that Offset got caught in a ménage à trois with Cuban Doll. Cardi was in Miami filming a video with Yung Miami of the City Girls while Offset was working to set up the tryst. In messages posted by Insta user @MMMForeign, Offset is seen arranging to meet in either Atl or Nola. Outing her friend, Persian Princess throws Cuban doll under the bus for trying to get close to Cardi while being closer to Offset.
Baddie Gi and Jade
Not best friends but siblings, Cardi set it off on these girls. Baddie Gi and Jade are the two bartenders that Cardi allegedly had her squad assault at the strip club shortly after giving birth to Kulture. For her actions, Cardi is facing charges and because of her absence in court she may face a warrant for arrest. The two maintain hey have not had affairs with Offset. However, Jade faces the brunt of the criticism. The rumor started by Twitter user @dilptl77, spread like wildfire and led to not one, but TWO assaults. The second assault, where Cardi was present, is what prompted Jade and Baddie Gi to lawyer up.

Also known as Queen Twerk, Faith Nketsi is a South African Instagram model and CEO of Feline Management. Offset ran into Faith while in Johannesburg for a concert. Video of the two seen in Nketsi’s IG stories showed them being friendly in the wings offstage further fueling rumors. What really raised eyebrows was the fact that she spent the entire day with them, even meeting them at the airport.
To make matters worse, Nketsi has recently been accused of running a prostitution ring servicing the wealthy. These claims surfaced after a woman employed by Feline Management claimed she was sexually assaulted by 6 men and offered R20,000 ($1463 USD) for her silence. If Nketsi did not service the Migos herself, then maybe she supplied the girls who did. This scandal caused Cardi to break up with Offset. She then took to IG to recant, saying “the Bronx girl in me always have to go to the extreme.”

Las Vegas Orgy
This story, broken by TashaK, implicates Offset AND Quavo who was dating Saweetie at the time. Tasha alleges that a woman contacted her on Instagram to share an encounter where she and several of her friends were invited to what they thought was an after party. Cell phones, cameras, anything that could potentially record evidence was checked at the door. Allegations of colorism and fat shaming in their selection process were included. The whole story just sounds like a mess.
Xocelina is the LEAST reputable source of information, but when it comes to her and Offset, the only lie was that he was the father of her child. Cardi took to IG to address several of the rumors surrounding their fling. Celina and Cardi went back and forth for weeks over the paternity of Celina’s child but Offset’s infidelity was never once questioned. Celina even taunted Cardi, roasting her for Offset being stupid enough to sleep with her.
Everyone found out about this one courtesy of the iCloud hack of December 2017. The video was leaked by Famelous who spoke with Cardi and confirmed it was Offset in the flick. Right before this leaked, Cardi bought Offset a Rolls Royce for his birthday.
These are only a handful of the encounters Offset had with other women. Honestly, it’s embarrassing. I applaud Cardi for finally prioritizing herself. Her career, her child, and her needs deserve the attention of a man who will be present and faithful. Having moved towards getting a divorce, things are already looking up.
What do you think? Too little too late ?

Beyoncé Drops New Song “Black Parade” [LISTEN]
Beyoncé celebrates Juneteenth with her new song “Black Parade“. Take a listen.
Also, listen to the extended version exclusively on Tidal.
Noname Drops “Song 33” in Response to J. Cole Diss
Chicago musician Noname has responded to J. Cole in her latest release “Song 33.” If you recall, two days ago we broke down the Noname/J.Cole beef and why many were calling Cole’s controversial song “Snow on Tha Bluff” misogynist and patriarchal. Noname appears to address the diss track and more on her latest release “Song 33.”
As soon as you press play the track hits you right in the feels. A sample saying “Oh, I have ambitions, dreams / But dreams don’t come cheap” opens the song, then immediately we listen to Noname discuss the patriarchal society in which Black women are forced to exist – a society that undervalues and ignores Black women. She said Oluwatoyin Salu’s name.
I saw a demon on my shoulder / it’s looking like patriarchy
Like scrubbing blood off the ceiling and bleaching another carpet
She takes aim at J. Cole for staying silent while Black women routinely “go missing,” yet immediately having something to say when she called him out on it.
One girl missing another one go missing / One girl missing another
But niggas in the back quiet as a church mouse / Basement studio when duty calls to get the verse out
Noname lists all the brutalities happening to Black people and Black women while at the same time, calling him to action. She reminds us Black women are going missing.
I guess the ego hurt now / It’s time to go to work / Wow
Look at him go / He really ‘bout to write about me when the world is in smokes?
When it’s people in trees?
She then criticizes the internet at large for being too easily distracted by the “beef” and losing sight of “the new world order.”
It’s trans women being murdered and this is all he can offer?
And this is all y’all receive? / Distracting you from the convo wit organizers
They talkin abolishing the police
This the new world order
Noname has always been an outspoken champion for Black women’s rights, often bringing attention to crimes committed against Black women that regularly go unheard. In her response to J. Cole, the musician again uses her platform to not only highlight the inherent patriarchy that causes so many Black female victims of violent crime to go unnoticed and forgotten, but to also galvanize Cole, to publicly and boldly challenge him and everyone listening to be the vanguards of a more just and equitable society.
Noname’s call to action is one that has been repeated by women of color for years. Tarana Burke (below), a woman of color and the founder of the “Me Too” Movement, initially began saying the phrase to remind women of color that they are not alone when they struggle with coping with sexual harassment and sexual assault.
Kimberlé Crenshaw (below), another woman of color and an outspoken feminist and civil rights activist, coined the term “intersectionality” to explain the myriad obstacles Black women face in society and how those obstacles compound on one another to create a unique brand of discrimination against them.
As we take each and every day, but especially this Juneteenth, to reflect on the painful history of the United States and remember the priceless cost of freedom, we must heed Noname’s call and begin to acknowledge the ways we Black Americans are not free, the ways Black women are not free.
And we must do it in a QUEEN TONE!!!
