Cardi B and Offset secretly married in 2017, before splitting up in 2018 after she gave birth that same year. The two have had an on-and-off relationship ever since.
The news was unexpected, and the reactions immediate.
Cardi B was nominated for five awards at this year’s BET Awards: Best Female Hip Hop Artist, Best Collaboration (“WAP” ft. Megan Thee Stallion), Video of the Year (“WAP” and “Up”) and Viewer’s Choice Award (“WAP”).
She and Megan Thee Stallion took home the award for Video of the Year, although Cardi B did not appear on stage to accept the award, saying she’d overdone it.
Offset, as part of Migos, was nominated for Best Group.
