Last week, in the grossest way possible, Cardi B confirmed her reconciliation with Offset.
He’s her husband and baby daddy, so it’s no real shock, even though he had cheated.
Now, Offset explains the careful steps that he is taking so that he doesn’t lose Cardi again.
In a new interview with Esquire, Offset speaks about his very recent reconciliation with Cardi B.
"It’s been good," Offset characterizes.
Not everyone gets a second chance after cheating, but Offset seems to know how lucky he is.
It sounds like he doesn’t want to make the same mistake again.
"We’re being more open to each other," he explains.
Right now, Offset explains, he and Cardi are "raising our baby and taking things slowly."
In that same interview, Offset also takes aim at his haters.
"I’ve never let anyone judge me because I’ve been in front of a judge before," Offset says.
He continues: "And I’m a warrior because of that.”
That’s an interesting way of phrasing it, but it does make sense that actual problems give you a healthy sense of perspective.
“I’ve been in front of somebody that can tell me when I’m going to sleep and when I’m waking up," Offset explains.
"I’ve been judged the unfair way. When you feel like you’re not a man," he characterizes.
"To beat that is hard, so whatever you perceive is what you perceive," he concludes. "That’s on you."
Earlier this month, Cardi shared similar sentiments about how she and Offset are reconnecting.
She explained to Entertainment Tonight that she and Offset are "working it out."
Like Offset, Cardi explained that the two of them are "taking it slow."
"We always going to be a family that’s together," Cardi predicted.
"My baby love us both," she said of their adorable daughter, Kulture.
Back in January, reports predicted that Cardi and Offset were in the process of reuniting.
"Cardi is focusing on Kulture and her work," an insider told Us Weekly at the time.
Cardi is a very accomplished rapper and she’s also a first-time mother.
"But has such a deep love for him, there’s a very good chance they could be fully back together soon," that source estimated.
That prediction came to pass.
Cardi gave her husband a shout-out in her Grammy’s acceptance speech.
In that public forum, she thanked him for his encouragement.
"Husband, thank you," Cardi said. "Nah, seriously he was like, ‘You want to do this album, girl.’"
Cardi recalled that Offset had told her: “’You going to have this baby and we going to make this album.’"
That definitely sounds very sweet.
After their initial breakup, it seemed that Offset had only one hope for winning back his wife: his dong.
According to Cardi’s very NSFW confessions from late in 2018, Offset is simply too good at laying pipe to stay out of her life forever.
That must be some talent. Cardi B could have any man she wanted. She could have as many men as she wanted.
But she chose Offset, even though he had been slipping his python into other terrariums.
Some have suggested that she fears that no man could love Kulture as fully as her birth father.
That is of course untrue. Plenty of people find loving step-parents.
But we hope that things work out just as Cardi hopes for her, Offset, and Kulture.
Taking it slow as they are is probably the right call.
