During her radio interview with Big Boy’s Neighborhood on Friday, April 13, 2018, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper offered relationship advice to the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who recently welcomed her first child amid boyfriend Tristan Thompson‘s cheating scandal.
“Just do what your heart feels like doing,” Cardi B, whose relationship with Migos rapper Offset faced public scrutiny after he cheated on her prior to their engagement last year, began. “Do what your heart feels like is right. At the end of the day, everybody wants to act like they’re dating deacons and pastors and their relationship is perfect.”
She added, “You don’t know what type of things are going on in their relationship, you don’t know how old certain receipts are. People make it seem like this happened two weeks ago. Let them work things out.”
To work through her own relationship troubles, the 25-year-old, who recently dropped her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, revealed that the couple turned to their family for support.
“We had to fight for our love, because it wasn’t as easy,” Cardi B said. “In the beginning of our relationship we had our doubts about each other, things weren’t perfect. I had my suspicions but we kept stuff private between us….We just worked it out. Our family was involved. Our moms were involved….The people who know me and love me were like, ‘You could work it out.'”
After overcoming the cheating scandal, the “Be Careful” rapper, who confirmed her pregnancy last weekend during her musical guest appearance on Saturday Night Live, admitted that she was hesitant to share the couple’s baby news with the public.
“I really did want to hide my pregnancy, because I just hate people’s opinions,” she said. “I hate different opinions and I hate people talking down about my baby, making it seem like it’s not a blessing.”
As Nicki Swift previously reported, Thompson, 27, was caught on video allegedly cheating on Kardashian, 33, with multiple women just days before their child’s due date. The couple, who have been together since October 2016, have yet to publicly comment on the infidelity reports.
