Cardi B Bio, Ethnicity
Cardi B was born on 11 October 1992 as Belcalis Almanzar in the Bronx, New York. She grew up with her parents in the South Bronx Highbridge area and is of Trinidadian-Mestizo and Dominican descent. Cardi B attended the Renaissance High School for Musical Theatre and Technology on the Herbert H. Lehman Campus. She took French and history courses at the Borough of Manhattan Community College but did not finish because she left college.
As a teenager, Cardi became a member of a street gang known as “Bloods. Her first job ever was in a Manhattan supermarket, and her weekly income was not enough to meet her needs as a nineteen-year-old. Since she was kicked out of her home and lived in a place where her money was constantly being stolen, Cardi decided to look for a better way to survive the hardship and her abusive relationship. Her manager at the supermarket introduced her to a friend who is in charge of club strippers, and although she was skeptical at first, she eventually gave in to the payment and realized that it wasn’t as bad as she thought. Cardi B started living comfortably and could afford her rent, bills, and general upkeep.
In 2013, she became popular with her short Instagram and Vine clips, which spread across the internet. Her videos were mainly about her perspective on relationships and survival. Stripping continued to play well, and she planned to retire at 25. Luckily, she signed a record deal in 2015 at the age of 23, and in December of that year, she released her very first music video, Cheap Ass Weave. With this, she immediately retired from stripping. Since then Cardi B has performed in major shows, including The Wendy Williams Show.
Parents, Boyfriend, Sister
Officially, not much is known about Cardi B’s parents, but from her interviews, we know that they are poor American citizens that she says they love her so much and tried to give her the best they could afford. She says that they still call her by her birth name “Belcarlis” to this day. Her father is of Dominican descent while her mother is a Trinidadian.
Cardi has one sister, Hennessey Carolina. Her name, which is the same as the popular French cognac of 1765, was given to her at birth because her father had drunk this drink before she was born. Hennessey is an aspiring fashion designer and stylist and shares a strong bond with her sister, Cardi B. She shows herself strong and willing to protect her from anyone who hates her; personally or in social media, and Hennessy shows no mercy. Cardi B. changed her name from “Belcarlis” because people called her “Bacardi”, the name of a rum, which was a way of comparing her name to her sister’s, and because she didn’t like it, she decided to change it. So her name became “Cardi B”, where the alphabet “B” means everything that depends on her particular disposition. To her, it could mean beautiful today and tyrannical tomorrow.
The music diva has called herself a “feminist” countless times and at the same time boasted that she likes to take advantage of men. But a look at her relationships and affairs proves that she does not do what she talks openly about. Her boyfriend Offset proposed to her in October 2017 with an 8-carat diamond ring that cost over $500,000 in front of an audience at Power 99’s Powerhouse concert in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She said yes, and two months later, in December 2017, he was involved in a sex tape scandal
Photos of him with a naked woman in a hotel were leaked, and days later he was accused of impregnating Celine Powell, a model. And though he didn’t openly admit to cheating on her, she doesn’t seem to mind. She explained that she was too old to break up and start over with someone who would also start cheating at some point. She says that she is holding on to the relationship because in her opinion everybody has to do with infidelity and besides that, it is her life she can handle on her own.
Offset is a rapper and songwriter who was born on 14 December 1991 to Kiari Kendrell Cephus. He has already fathered four children – two boys and two girls – by other women. Their names are Jordan, Kody, Kalea Marie, and Brittney Elena.
