The Cardi B and Offset soap-opera continues.

It’s almost two weeks since the ‘Bodak Yellow’ rapper announced her split from the Migos star following a fresh set of cheating allegations.

In that time, the father of four has publicly and repeatedly declared his love for his wife and besieged her to take him back. Just this week, he used his birthday to beg for her return – citing time with her and their daughter Kulture as the only gift he wants.

Tonight however he upped the ante. Because while Cardi was performing at the Rolling Loud Festival in Los Angeles, the MC crashed the stage (with flowers that read “Take Me Back Cardi”) and said:

“I just want to tell you I’m sorry bruh. In person. In front of the WORLD.”
