Cardi B fans were left disappointed when the rapper decided to pull out of the 2018 Bruno Mar’s tour. The songstress has now revealed why she did so, explaining to Harper’s Bazaar that she struggled with postpartum depression, which she was suffering from at the time. She said, “I thought I was going to avoid it. When I gave birth, the doctor told me about postpartum, and I was like, ‘Well, I’m doing good right now, I don’t think that’s going to happen.” But apparently that isn’t how it has happened. “Out of nowhere, the world was heavy on my shoulders,” she said.
The Bodak Yellow rapper went on to reveal that till today she sometimes feels the weight of the experience, saying that she still sees the differences in herself.
“For some reason, I still don’t feel like my body’s the same,” she said. “I feel like I don’t have my balance right yet. When it comes to heels, I’m not as good at walking anymore. I feel like I’m holding a weight on me. I don’t know why because I’m skinnier than I’ve ever been. But there’s an energy I haven’t gotten back yet that I had before I was pregnant. It’s just the weirdest thing.”
She also talked about her ex, rapper Offset, who is also her baby-daddy. The two had a bitter break-up after the birth of their daughter, Kulture, with Cardi rejecting the rapper’s lavish attempts at winning her back. She revealed many things to her fans, such as how the Migos band-member even planned to attend couple’s therapy before their split, to which she said “I didn’t want to go to marriage counseling,”
“He suggested it, but it’s like…I don’t want to go. There’s no counselor or nothing that could make me change my mind.” She then added: “Nobody makes my decisions about my life but me.” Looks like she’s been through a lot, but we all know Cardi B is a strong woman who will pick herself right back up!
