Oct 19 2020 Share

After “harassment” from fans upset that she has rekindled her friendship with rapper Offset, Cardi B has deleted her Twitter account. On Friday (16 October), the “WAP” actress announced that she would no longer divorce Offset, just weeks after she had applied for divorce. 

Cardi said she did not want her initial divorce filing to be made public in an 18 October Instagram Live, which has since been removed, and criticized fans for wanting to control her personal choices.

“A whole bunch of 15-year-olds telling me how to live my life like I’m motherf***ing Ariana Grande or something. Like I came from Disney or something. That s*** is crazy! So what do you want me to do? I’m not a regular, average bitch [who] can go and f*** around with a n**** … I’m not that, I’m f***ing Cardi B.”
