Cardi Calls it Quits with Offset

No more “WAP” for Offset as wife Cardi B is filing for divorce following new cheating allegations. According to the divorce filing, the “WAP” rapper says that the marriage is “irretrievably broken” with no potential prospects for a reconciliation. Reports indicate that she will be applying for primary custodial rights of their two-year-old daughter, Kulture.

This is not the first time the couple, currently separated, have made headlines over cheating allegations. In 2018, infidelity accusations almost tanked their marriage but Cardi chose to stay, saying that she wanted to “work out my s*** with my man, and I don’t got to explain why”, in an interview with Cosmopolitan.

“I believe in forgiveness. 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”, she further said during an interview with Vogue.

Cardi and Offset would have been celebrating their third marriage anniversary this Sunday (September 20th). The divorce hearing is set for November 4th,2020. Neither of the rappers have publicly addressed the matter yet.

Both will be available from this Thursday (Sept. 18) with new navy blue and product red colors, alongside the silver, gold aluminum and space gray options.

The new iPad Air will boast a 10.9” Liquid Retina Display running on an A14 Bionic Processor – Apple notes that the chip will not only provide a 40% CPU performance boost on the device, but also a 30% increase in graphics performance compared to its predecessor, the iPad Pro. Its Touch ID has also been moved to the power button as the Home button has been done away with. iPad Air will be available from October, retailing at $599 (Kshs. 59,999) with additional new green and sky-blue colors.
