Cardi B has opened up about her relationship with her husband of two years.
Appearing on the cover of Vogue’s January 2020 cover with their daughter Kulture, she spoke openly about forgiving husband Offset – real name Kiari Kendrell Cephus – after a cheating scandal.
“When me and my husband got into our issues, you know, he cheated and everything, and I decided to stay with him and work together with him,” Cardi, real name Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar explained.
“My thing is, everybody on social media acts like relationships is perfect, and that’s crazy to me,” she said.
The 27-year-old said women portray their relationships as perfect online, despite underlying issues.
“I’m around so many women, and there’s always a woman talking about how she loves her man, but her man is not financially stable, or she has a problem with his mom, or the sex is not as good anymore.”
“Everybody has issues. I believe in forgiveness.”
The rap star revealed that she sought help from priests, as well as praying to work things out with her husband.
Splitting just a year after tying the knot, the couple soon reunited to work through their marital issues.
“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. He has my back for everything, I have his back for everything, so when you cheat, you’re betraying the person that has your back the most.”
For their relationship, Cardi said monogamy is the only way.
“Why would you do that?” she asks. “We have come to a clear understanding.”
“For me, monogamy is the only way. I’ll beat your ass if you cheat on me.”
