Cardi B makes history with Vogue cover, dishes on taking back Offset

Published

on

Cardi B is showing us a different side thanks to a new magazine cover.

The former “Love & Hip Hop: New York” star is the first female rapper to grace the cover of U.S. Vogue magazine. And she’s not alone for the January 2020 issue.

The “Press” performer’s daughter, Kulture, joined her on the Annie Leibovitz-shot cover.

“Happy to share this moment with you my sweetheart. This is bigger for you then for me. You are so special to me. Thank you,” the rapper wrote on Instagram.

And it’s Kulture’s dad, Offset, who is the subject of some key points of the interview.

The Georgia native reportedly cheated on Cardi in December 2018. They broke up, and then Cardi took him back.

“When me and my husband got into our issues—you know, he cheated and everything—and I decided to stay with him and work together with him, a lot of people were so mad at me; a lot of women felt disappointed in me,” Cardi said.

“But it’s real-life (expletive). If you love somebody and you stop being with them, and you’re depressed and social media is telling you not to talk to that person because he cheated, you’re not really happy on the inside until you have the conversation. Then, if you get back with them, it’s like, how could you? You let all of us down. People that be in marriages for years, when they say till death do us part, they not talking about little arguments like if you leave the fridge open. That’s including everything.”

Cardi acknowledged that exposing her life on social media “makes everything hard.” But she and Offset have managed to improve their communication, and she knows where they stand.

“I believe in forgiveness. I prayed on it,” she said. “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. He has my back for everything, I have his back for everything, so when you cheat, you’re betraying the person that has your back the most. Why would you do that? We have come to a clear understanding. For me, monogamy is the only way.”

Cardi won’t get violent, however, over Kulture’s bonding with her siblings. The 17-month-old is the Migos rapper’s fourth child. Kulture recently spent time with Offset’s older children during Thanksgiving in Atlanta.

“It’s gonna be fun,” Cardi told People magazinein anticipation of the festivities. “A lot of open space down there in Atlanta, so I can’t wait.”

“The Real” co-host Jeannie Mai and rapper Jeezy are now engaged.

According to People, the rapper/businessman popped the question during a special date night. The publication says the proposal went down at his LA crib on March 27.

People – which reported the news first – says Jeezy was planning to propose to Mai on a scheduled trip to Vietnam in April. However, the trip was scrapped due to the coronavirus crisis and related travel restrictions. Apparently dude couldn’t wait any longer to wife her up and surprised Jeannie with the proposal during date night inside.

“Jeannie and Jay were set for a trip to Vietnam this April. What Jeannie didn’t know is that Jay was planning to propose. Instead, Jay decided to bring Vietnam to Jeannie with a surprise quarantine date night in his home filled with Vietnamese food and decor,” a rep for Mai said.

 

For those that don’t know how they got hooked up or forgot, they met on the set of her daytime talk show, “The Real,” and started dating in November 2018. Mai and Jeezy didn’t confirm their romance until August 2019.

“We both went through enough in our life to connect on the understanding that love should feel safe, honest, and pure,” Mai told People about the relationship last November. “Immediately that was a magnetic attraction. We are very attracted to each other’s passions to serve. So because we have a mutual joy of having a purpose, we’re going to find a way to do that together.”

Jeezy, 42 and Mai, 41, also spent Thanksgiving together for the first time in his hometown of Atlanta, where Mai mingled with Jeezy’s extended family and gave back by working with two local nonprofits.

“It was so wonderful to meet his family and be able to spend time together,” she said on The Real at the time. “It was special.”

Mai was previously married to Freddy Harteis. The divorce was officially settled in January 2019.

In the divorce agreement, both parties agreed to waive the right to spousal support. Mai walked away with her $1.2 million Sherman Oaks home, clothing, jewelry and other personal effects. The talk show host kept several bank accounts and her entertainment company Mai Dream Inc.

Her ex-husband walked away with a 2003 Mercedes Benz C-Class, a 2016 Dodge Ram 2500 Power Wagon, a Sprinter Pull Log Trailer, and several other bank accounts.

In upcoming ESPN documentary “D. Wade: Life Unexpected,” NBA baller Dwyane Wade not only discusses his life on the court, but his personal relationships as well, opening up about the moment he had to tell his now-wife, actress Gabrielle Union, that he fathered a child while the two were “on a break.”

“I had a child with someone else and I had to tell her. Hardest thing I’ve ever had to do is man up and tell Gabrielle Union that I’ve had a child with somebody else,” he says in the upcoming sports special, ET reports. “I couldn’t sleep. I wasn’t eating.”

Wade was already father to son Zaire, 18, daughter Zaya, 12, and nephew Dahveon, 18 when he and “Basketball Wives” star Aja Metoyer conceived 6-year-old Xavier shortly before reuniting with and proposing to the former “AGT” judge. 

He continued, “When you hold something in that you know is going to come out and you have this information and you know it’s gonna f–k somebody’s life up, that you care about, that you love, if it don’t hurt you, then you’re not human.”

Wade, 38, went on to say he and Union, 47, “went through something that you never want to go through and we still came out of it.”

The Wades married in August 2014 and welcomed daughter Kaavia, 1, via surrogate in 2018.
