Breakups are messy and Offset’s pursuits at wooing his estranged wife, Cardi B, have been incessant. Mr. Cephus has already professed how much he misses his wife and issued a public apology masked as a birthday wish via Instagram. Over the weekend, he took his efforts at getting his wife back to a desperate extreme. The Bronx phenom was the first female to headline Rolling Loud, the self-proclaimed “largest hip-hop festival in the world,” this past Saturday (Dec. 15). The “Wishy Washy” emcee crashed her historic set with roses that spelled “take me back, Cardi” and followed her publicist, Patience Foster, onto the stage with a single bouquet in hand.
Many felt the fiasco was an “orchestrated publicity stunt,” allowed by Patience, Cardi’s management team and the organizers behind Rolling Loud. After a series of deleted tweets resurfaced and the founder of the festival insisting they “have never and will never do anything to change a headliner's set," fans were still torn. In several videos, Cardi is seen arguing with her spouse prior to him being kicked off stage with $15,000 roses trailing behind him. Amid the jaw-dropping ordeal, both the Migos trap star and the “Backin’ It Up” femcee spoke up about the role he played in that night’s events.
Despite Patience being the publicist for both Cephuses, many fans felt it wasn’t her place to set Cardi up in that manner. However, both parties involved had quite a mouthful to say after the smoke cleared.
In a lengthy series of Instagram posts, Patience wrote, “I work with two GROWN ASS PEOPLE who have the freedom to make decisions for themselves and for their relationship whether right or wrong… I don't have them by the strings nor do I have control over them in the sick way that y’all think!” She continued, “whether or not your good intentions translate to a non-involved party shouldn’t matter! The good we try to do and the efforts we make to right our wrongs is only intended for the people we wish to be on the receiving end…”
Bardi fired back at the countless statements urging her to fire her longtime friend.
During a 13-minute rant, the Grammy-nominated femcee divulged about Patience defending her time after time, especially during the volatile brawl with Nicki Minaj at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS party and when other publicists begged her to change. "[Patience] allowed me to be myself," she said, reflecting, "She took on my husband and sister as clients [...] and I'm not gonna let nobody that don't know my personal life, that don't really know me, that don't give a f**k about my daughter, tell me that I should fire somebody because y'all don't agree with something," Bardi continued.
“You got me f**ked up ‘cause at the end of the day, that’s my family… I don’t give a f**k [who you are], I will never let y’all disrespect someone that is close to me. I will f**k y'all ni**as up in real life," she stated.
Cardi reiterated how much of a f**k she doesn't give and discussed all the timeless moments Patience did for her over the past two years. Bardi Gang is still collecting their edges and thoughts...
