Hip hop recording artist and television personality Cardi B has settled the debate over a live video which many thought showed the "Bodak Yellow" rapper having sex with her fiance, Offset, member of the rap trio Migos (video below).
"If anybody watch the live from last night they can see from beginning to end that i was talking then this guy came behind me and started fake dry humping me ... Jesus Christ we Both had pants on!!" she wrote in a Dec. 27 tweet.
A representative for Cardi B had previously confirmed to TMZ that the video was a joke and the pair was fully clothed the whole time.
Joke or not, the couple did a good job of convincing many people the video was real. In a clip posted to Twitter by World Star Hip Hop, the couple is seen simulating having sex. While Offset stands behind Cardi B and thrusts, she says, "I don't got no more in me left. You gotta give me a whole hour..."
Commenters on the Twitter post reacted with shock and expressed the opinion that if the video was real, the rapper had taken it too far.
"That's nasty. Not cute," wrote one commenter.
"They just brought a whole new meaning to open relationships," wrote another. "Ya'll nasty."
"Not cute...we need to do better," wrote a third.
Cardi B rocketed to fame in 2017 after her single "Bodak Yellow" topped the charts. The song won Single of the Year at the BET Awards and has gone triple-platinum, according to Page Six. She is nominated for two Grammys.
The live video came days after an alleged sex tape of the rapper was released. The video was posted Dec. 22 and claims to show Cardi B nude. The video is being billed a "preview" of a more explicit tape, according to Page Six.
Fans of Cardi B took to Twitter to defend her, some pointing out that the successful rapper used to be a stripper and has had naked videos posted long before her rise to fame.
"Yes [Cardi B] used to be a stripper who has naked videos from her past stop bringing it up when she doing good always hating going on it's really sad," one commenter said, according to Page Six.
"Why are people leaking nude videos of Cardi B?" wrote another. "She used to be a stripper, her naked body isn't a secret or a scandal. Y'all won't let anyone successful keep their past in the past."
The rapper responded to the video with a tweet on Christmas, writing, "People keep posting the nude videos of me like if i wasn't a stripper before. You know there's video of me stripping with my ti**ies and a*s out on YouTube already right? anyways i know i know i got a nice body right."
