Cardi B may have just given birth to her daughter Kulture, but she’s still living a life of luxury most of us will never understand. On Sunday, the Bronx-born rapper shared her latest purchase with fans: a pair of matching green-and-blue Lamborghini Aventadors that she had just bought for herself and her husband Offset. In the caption, she wrote, “Blessed & Gifted ?? Official Lamb owners.”

But fans stormed the comments claiming that the rappers were only leasing the cars; they argued that Belcalis and Offset aren’t actually the owners. Cardi was quick to silence the haters – she took to Instagram Live with the receipts to prove that she did in fact pay for the whips herself. “Why would you play me like a bitch is broke?” she said.

The “I Like It” star took it a step further and posted a screenshot of her Wells Fargo bank statement, which revealed all of her recent transactions and clearly lists a withdrawal of $548,736.97 – you know, a typical account balance for the rest of us. In the clip, Cardi shows a receipt from the car dealership to confirm that she paid for the vehicle in straight cash.

Though she has yet to apply for a driver’s license, the Dominican-Trinidadian rapper is clearly living her best life. Alongside a couple of thousand-dollar check deposits and spa charges, Almanzar is still dropping $64 at Waffle House. Same.

The Bronx star’s Invasion of Privacy standout “I Like It” continues to dominate the Billboard Hot 100; on July 2, the song capped the charts at no. 1, later moving into the second chart position after Drake’s record-shattering album Scorpion hit streaming platforms. On Monday, boogaloo legend Pete Rodriguez revealed he had never heard of Cardi B until his grandchildren texted him to share that his 1967 hit “I Like It Like That” was sampled on her career-defining debut album.
