Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar Cephus was born Belcalis Almanzar, on the 11th October 1992, in the South Bronx, New York. Her father is Dominican, and her mother Trinidadian. As a teenager, she was a member of the Bloods street gang and has previously stated she’d been a gang-banger since the age of 16. She attended Renaissance High School For Musical Theater & Technology and briefly worked at an Amish supermarket before she turned to stripping at 19 years old. Cardi said she became a stripper to escape poverty, and domestic violence after being involved in an abusive relationship. She also was able to go back to school with the money she was earning.
In early 2017, Cardi B began publicly dating rapper Offset, from the hip hop group Migos. The couple became publicly, engaged in October that same year, after Offset proposed during the Power 99 Powerhouse concert, although TMZ revealed in 2018 that their marriage license indicates the couple married secretly in September 2017. Cardi B later confirmed this revelation on social media. She gave birth to their daughter in July 2018.
On September 15, 2020 Cardi B filed for divorce from Offset. In the divorce filing Cardi requested primary physical custody of their daughter Kulture, child support and an equitable division of assets because there was apparently no pre-nup. They were already separated at the time of the filing.
