Cardi B shocks fans by revealing that she and Offset secretly got married back in September
Now that Cardi B has well and truly shot to fame, it seems she's getting increasingly fed up with the "lil nosey f*cks" that have been thirsty for gossip surrounding her private life. The rapper has always been open about her life – including her history as a stripper and her experiences being pregnant for the first time – but it seems that people want to know even more.
The latest speculation surrounding the Grammy-nominated musician was that she and fiancée Offset (of Migos) wed in secret last year. TMZ got hold of a marriage certificate that stated the couple got hitched back in September and shared it online. The document stated that Kiari Kendrell Cephus (Offset's real name) and Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar (Cardi's offical name) "were united in marriage" on September 20, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia.
Things only got juicier when Offset spoke at the BET Awards and seemed to refer to Cardi as his spouse. "I thank God, I thank my wife, and you should thank yours," he said into the mic while accepting an award alongside the rest of Migos.
Offset very publically proposed to Cardi on October 27th last year, and in April, the rapper revealed a prominent baby bump on SNL to announce that she and Offset were expecting. So to learn that they maybe-probably got married before all that was announced?! That's a gossip bomb if I ever saw one.
And it turns out that it's true! Cardi took to Twitter to address the marriage rumours, sharing a lengthy message about it and highlighting in the caption, "This why i name my album 'Invasion of privacy' cause people will do the most to be nosey about your life .Welp f*ck it ."
While she seems fed up with people being "nosey" about her personal life, Cardi felt the need to confirm the rumours, even though it was a moment she wanted "to keep for myself".
"There are so many moments that I share with the world and then there are moments that I want to keep for myself! Getting married was one of those moments!" she wrote.
"Our relationship was so new breaking up and making up and we had a lot of growing up to do but we was so in love we didn't want to lose each other, was one morning in September we woke up and decided to get married. We found someone to marry us, and she did, just the two of us and my cousin. I said I do, with no dress no make up and no ring!
I appreciate and love my husband so much for still wanting for me have that special moment that every girl dreams of when he got down on his knee and put a ring on my finger and he did that for me!! Well now since you lil nosey f*cks know at least ya can stop saying I had a baby out of wedlock."
Well, even though she had a very low-key, no-nonsense wedding, at least she still got the thrill of a public proposal and the sly feeling that comes with holding back a huge secret from everyone for such a long time. Congratulations to Cardi and Offset, even if it is nine months too late!
