Cardi B decided to reassure everyone that her split from Offset is official and not for exposure, ahead of the release of her soon-to-be ex-husband’s solo album.
“I just really hate how people say we trying to do this for publicity,” she said. “Think we want to put our life out there for what — what we gain from publicity? Nothing.”
Cardi certainly has a point. She built her brand by being unapologetically raw, and released one of the best albums of 2018, so she doesn’t need to use the Tekashi 6ix9ine formula. The press goes to her.
She additionally countered the possibility that her whole relationship was fake.
“I’ve been seeing a lot of people say that my relationship was fake. Bitch, there’s certain things called love,” she said. “People do fall in love. Like my relationship was never fake. I met this n*gga, he was on my ass, I gave him a chance and we fell in love with each other.”
She noted that they have a whole baby together and that’ll be a bit of a reach if their relationship was fake.
“But we never did anything for publicity, bitch. You think I got f*cking pregnant, could have ruined my career for f*cking publicity?” she said.
With that settled, Cardi B ended off on a lighter note saying that the relationship was a learning experience for her.
“‘I learned a lot,” she said. “I ain’t really know much about the music industry and you know my husband helped me. He made me wiser. He let me open my eyes to a lot of things, and even though we are not together anymore, I learned a lot.”
After her Instagram live, Offset took to Twitter to let the world knows that he misses Bardi.
