Cardi B and Offset's marriage may not be as imminently over as it once seemed.
The "Bodak Yellow" rapper answered a question about the status of their relationship as she left a courthouse in Queens, New York, after a Thursday hearing regarding her ongoing strip club fight case.
“We working things out, baby,” Cardi said, according to reports from E! News and People, after being asked if she had reunited with her estranged husband. The apparent truce in their marriage comes about two months after she announced their split in early December.
In a now-delated Instagram video from Dec. 5, Cardi, 26, claimed she and the Migos rapper had tried and failed to make their relationship work.
"We are really good friends and we are really good business partners, you know, he’s always somebody that I run to talk to, and we got a lot of love for each other but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time," she said. “It’s nobody fault. 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."
About a week later, Offset, 27, tried and failed to win her back with a public stunt at December's Rolling Loud Festival in Los Angeles. He wheeled out flower arrangements that spelled out "Take Me Back Cardi" during Cardi's headling set. In video of the concert, Cardi can be seen shaking her head and having a verbal exchange with Offset, before he quickly leaves the stage.
Cardi and Offset secretly married in September 2017 before the Migos rapper's public proposal on Oct. 28, when he offered her a giant ring onstage at Power 99 radio’s Powerhouse concert in Philadelphia.
The couple's baby daughter, Kulture, was born in July.
