Cardi B is seeking a divorce from husband Offset.

Cardi B and Offset’s marriage hasn’t been without its challenges. In December 2018, Cardi introduced their daughter Kulture to the world on Instagram, the same day she announced that she and Offset were no longer in a relationship.

Cardi B, real name Belcalis Almanzar, filed a divorce petition in Atlanta Tuesday after nearly three years of marriage, according to a Fulton County court filing reviewed by The Times.

The Grammy-winning rapper, 27, stated she is currently separated from her husband, the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and “there are no prospects for a reconciliation,” People and TMZ reported.

Cardi B wants legal and primary physical custody of the couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Kulture. She is also seeking an equitable division of their marital assets as well as for Offset to pay both child support and all of her legal fees from the divorce.

The petition comes three years after the couple secretly wed in September 2017, before Offset publicly proposed a month later by offering Cardi B a giant ring while they were onstage during a Philadelphia concert.

USA TODAY has reached out to the couple’s reps for comment.

Cardi B and Offset’s marriage hasn’t been without its challenges.

In December 2018, Cardi introduced Kulture to the world on Instagram, the same day she announced that she and Offset were no longer in a relationship.

In a (since-deleted) Instagram video, Cardi said that she and Offset had been trying to make their relationship work, to no avail.

“It’s nobody fault,” she said. ”I guess we just grew out of love, but we are not together anymore. I don’t know, it might take time to get a divorce and I’m going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father.”

The announcement came in the mist of reported infidelity on the part of Offset, with TMZ publishing a tearful video statement from model Summer Bunni in which she apologized for coming between the couple.

A few days later, Offset crashed his wife’s set at the Rolling Loud music festival in Los Angeles in an attempt to win her back, wheeling out an elaborate flower arrangement that spelled out “TAKE ME BACK CARDI” along with bouquets of red and white flowers. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper wasn’t having it: She shook her head at Offset and had an inaudible exchange with him before sending him offstage.

But the new year seemed to bring a thaw in their relationship, with Offset accompanying Cardi B to the Grammys in January 2019. The next month, she told reporters, “We working things out, baby.”

During an appearance on ”The Ellen DeGeneres Show” the following March 2019, Offset opened up about becoming briefly estranged from Cardi B.

“I love my wife, so it’s serious, not a game to me,” he said.

Offset also told DeGeneres he decided to own his mistakes with his wife: “I stepped to it as a man and said, ‘I’m wrong.’ I stepped to it as a man, and you don’t have to take me back but I just want you to know I love you and I care.”

The hip-hop stars have never shied away from NSFW public displays of affection on social media or even on the 2019 Grammys red carpet. Offset featured heavily in Cardi B‘s Instagram Stories and was referenced in “WAP”, her graphic hit duet with Megan Thee Stallion.
