Offset comes out in support of Cardi B after her old video sparks widespread outrage
Cardi B has been going through a rough patch after a three-year-old video resurfaced recently where she is seen confessing to drugging and robbing men. The 'Bodak Yellow' rapper received massive backlash and many compared her to disgraced musician R Kelly after she issued a half-hearted apology. However, her husband Offset has come out to publicly lend his support.
"Ride or die forever love you no matter whats going on I love you best mother and hustler I know," the 27-year-old Migos member captioned a picture of them at a tropical destination.
The Instagram Live video that recently resurfaced created waves of disgust forcing Cardi B to came forward and open up about the story behind the bizarre claim. In the video, the rapper had said: "I had to go strip, I had to go, ‘Oh yeah, you want to f–k me? Yeah, yeah, yeah, let’s go back to this hotel,’ and I drugged n—–s up, and I robbed them. That’s what I used to do."
26-year-old Cardi B, responding to fans who were shocked by the video, said, "I never claim to be perfect or come from a perfect world with a perfect past I always speak my truth I always own my shit."
Cardi B, who shares a daughter with Offset, said she never glorified the things she brought up in the video. "I never even put those things in my music because I’m not proud of it and feel a responsibility not to glorify it."
Her first male victim came out on Tuesday allegedly confirming that he had been drugged, raped and robbed by the 'Please Me' rapper. Kevin Smith, a New York resident, came forward claiming that he had once invited Cardi B back to his room because he was "feeling her." He said that he only remembered the singer twerking on him before blacking out. Smith added that, when he regained consciousness the next morning, he found a used condom in the room and that his personal items were missing.
"I had been drinking already so I had to piss, I slid into the bathroom and came back and finished my drink. Last thing I remembered was she was twerking on me, music blasting and that was it. The next morning, I saw a used condom on the floor and then I noticed all the cash I had, which was about $850, my Louis Vitton belt, and my iPod touch, were missing."
He added, "I tried calling her several times but I soon realized she gave me a google voice number. I know she did it but I couldn't prove it so I never went to file the charges mainly because I did not want my fiancée to know what had happened so I took my 'L'. I can't lie, it was certainly traumatizing and, as a man, you never want to admit you were taken advantage of. No man wants to say #MeToo," Smith added.
However, Cardi B has the support of her husband, despite the fact that the couple has been through a lot of ups and downs. After she confirmed the rumors that Offset had cheated on her, she defended him by saying that she is certainly no angel herself.
Prior to them getting back together, Offset had pulled several stunts to win his estranged wife back. He had even crashed her Rolling Loud festival in Los Angeles, California last year to woo her.
In a recent interview to People, Offset said how they both put their family first. "My wife and I make sure we’re always around our daughter. It’s about time. Time is more important than money."
