The shattering end of Cardi B and Offset’s hip-hop love story may not be over quite yet. This past weekend, amid the celebratory events of the Migos trapster’s 27th birthday, he attempted to win over his wife by crashing her headlining set at the Rolling Loud festival in Los Angeles. He was promptly shut down and escorted offstage, but Bardi doesn’t want anyone bashing the father of her child, regardless of their marital woes.
Now, another member of the Cephus clan has stepped forward for more than a few bold sentiments about the ongoing disputes between the estranged couple. Offset’s father, Tony, hopped onto Facebook to thank his frat brothers for curbing his “family situation being played out over the news,” but soon after, penned a lengthy drag for the Bronx femcee.
He began, “right now, my family is going through a tumultuous time. What you see in the media is only the tip of the iceburg. Social media is a powerful tool, but certainly no place for family situations; however, our youth, specifically my son’s wife doesn’t understand that.”
To clarify, Tony doesn’t feel the “Slippery” emcee is innocent, “as he has done his share of dirt,” but does feel “the whole scenario is a tic-for-tat, mudslinging, situation fueled by jealousy, envy, insecurities, psychological issues, drugs, etc.” In spite of being imperfect, Offset “is [his child] and as a parent, I have a duty to protect him… he’s a 25-year-old with an unlimited supply of money, women chasing him,” he continued.
Tony further discussed his involvement in Offset’s life and especially his legal affairs. “When Cardi posted the divorce video, I could not get any work done at work,” he said. He, then, admitted that Bardi released Kulture’s photo “out of spite” because “it was supposed to come out in his album [and] she basically screwed my whole family over that vowed not to release pictures to social media.”
In terms of Kulture, as her mother, Cardi should have the right to move however she pleases. Yet, this situation just became a whole lot messier.
