Cardi B, the ‘Bodak Yellow’ rapper of Dominican descent, has been in a relationship with fellow rapper, Kiari Cephus known professionally as Offset for a while, and the two recently got engaged while performing onstage.
Last October, the 25-year-old said yes while she and Offset did their thing at Power 99’s Powerhouse in Philadelphia. The duo were performing to a packed crowd when he popped the question.
Cardi’s real name is actually Belcalis Almanzar. She was born October 11, 1992. She comes from the Bronx, although her family is of Trinidadian/Dominican descent. Her parents nicknamed her Bacardi, as a testament to her Caribbean heritage.
Cardi who performed as an exotic dancer for several years, released a DVD called I Am: Cardi B and landed a special on Revolt TV taking viewers behind the scenes of her life.
The social media personality, video vixen and rapper is also well known as a cast member on the reality series Love & Hip Hop: New York. However, she quit she show to pursue other venture and it looked like it paid off. Cardi B became No.1 on the Billboard 100 chart in September 2017! The rapper overtook Taylor Swift to reach the top of the charts with ‘Bodak Yellow’.
The hip hop recording artist, has also been pretty active in the dating scene. Some of her romantic partners include:
#1 Tommy Geez
Cardi B was in a previously relationship with boyfriend Tommy, who was in jail during the filming of Love & Hip Hop. In early 2016, she posted (then deleted) a photo of her fella Tommy on her Instagram, writing, “My babe thooo. Can’t wait for him to get transfer[red] to his permanent prison so he could get a haircut and dress fly,” Cardi continued thanking her friend, “Thanks @RayBando for visiting Tommy for me, I been sooo busy.”
The two began dating before he was jailed for gun possession, however the relationship didn’t last because of Cardi’s busy schedule.
Also in 2016 Cardi B and producer Swift were also said to be getting it on. The two shared a passionate kiss while filming Love & Hip Hop. However, Swift was off the market.
For those who followed the show, you may remember Cardi, Swift and his girlfriend had a very loud and heated fight about the on camera kiss. Later, Cardi B told Swift that she wasn’t ready to get into a new relationship after her breakup with Tommy.
The rumors about Offset and Cardi B began after the two were spotted celebrating the 2017 Super Bowl together. On Valentine’s Day, Cardi officially announced the relationship and posted a video of herself and Offset with the caption, “Oooh Hey babe,” and the lips emoji. Offset confirmed the relationship in her comment section with the boyfriend and girlfriend emoji.
