A source is giving insight into the potential reason behind Cardi B and Offset’s split.
On Tuesday, the same day it was revealed that the two rappers are getting a divorce, an “E! News” insider blamed the breakup on allegations that Offset has been unfaithful to his wife on multiple occasions.
"Cardi does not trust Offset. She's really tried for the last two years and has tried to forgive him,” the source revealed.
“It's been hard for her since the last cheating scandal and there have been rumors of him being unfaithful again,” the insider added, referencing the December 2019 allegation that Offset direct-messaged Tekashi 6ix9ine’s then-girlfriend Jade.
"He has been pleading with her that he hasn't, but many girls have come forward with claims. She had enough and decided to file," the source explained, adding that Cardi "wants to be a good example for her daughter and women out there."
While noting that "the divorce is very shocking to everyone around them,” the insider said the couple — who secretly married in their bedroom in September 2017 — “have been living together, parenting [2-year-old daughter] Kulture and seemed to be doing fine from an outsider's perspective."
On Wednesday, TMZ reported that Cardi officially amended her divorce documents, which were originally filed Tuesday at Fulton County Superior Court.
Though Cardi initially asked for child support as well as primary physical custody and legal custody of Kulture, she now wants Offset to have joint custody and is no longer seeking support.
While the petition previously noted that this is a contested divorce, Cardi made it clear in her amendment that she desires “an amicable resolution” and wants the court to enforce whichever arrangement she and Offset reach.
TMZ reported on Tuesday that Offset has yet to respond to Cardi’s filing.
Cardi has previously opened up about taking Offset back after his alleged cheating, telling Vogue in their January 2020 issue, “I believe in forgiveness. I prayed on it. Me and my husband, we prayed on it. We had priests come to us. And we just came to an understanding like, bro, it's really us against the world... For me, monogamy is the only way. I'll beat your ass if you cheat on me."
