The rumor mill spins, so Cardi B throws a wrench in it. Live on Instagram yesterday, the rapper addressed the “bullshit” surrounding her announced divorce from Offset, father of their 2-year-old daughter Kulture and member of the hip-hop troupe Migos.

Despite his admitting infidelity late last year, Cardi confirms the separation has nothing to do with that, and everything to do with being “tired of fucking arguing.”

The divorce filing registered on Sept. 14 in Fulton County, Ga., states the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and that “there are no prospects for reconciliation,” E! News reports.

Whatever sources claiming Offset has a baby due with someone else are lying, Cardi stresses. That she’s announced the divorce to earn hype ahead of a new single is also false: “I don’t need stunts, I don’t need drama to sell music,” she says in the live, pointing out the success of her single, “WAP,” alongside Megan Thee Stallion. “Don’t ever say that I’m doing anything for clout because I’m going to drop something.”

Cardi B and Offset were married in September 2017 and separated in 2018. While they gave it another go the following year, Cardi B posted then a caption that now seems prescient:

“I guess we grew out of love, but we’re not together anymore. I don’t know,” she wrote. “It might take time to get a divorce and I’m gonna always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father.”
