After three tumultuous years of marriage, superstar rapper Cardi B filed for divorce Tuesday from her husband, rapper Offset, according to court records.
The couple, who married secretly in September 2017, had already been through a well-publicized rough patch that resulted in her announcing their break-up almost two years ago.
"We got a lot of love for each other but things just haven't been working out between us for a long time," she said in a December 2018 video on Instagram, where she has some 75.5 million followers.
Despite the turmoil in her personal life, Cardi B has rocketed to success from her humble origins in New York's Bronx.
Her 2017 hit "Bodak Yellow" brought her fame, and 2020 chart-topper "WAP" brought her controversy.
The song is an unadulterated celebration of female desire brimming with graphic sexual metaphors that left American conservatives hot and bothered.
