It’s been a dramatic week for Cardi B, who has allegedly split from rapper Offset after 15 months of marriage. The “Bodak Yellow” singer confirmed the news in an Instagram video yesterday, December 5, explaining to her fans that the breakup was “no one’s fault” and that her and Offset remain “really good friends and business partners.” As for the reason behindparting ways, Cardi chalked it up to things not working between the two for a while.
Shortly after the video was released, the rapper attended a business appearance at Art Basel in Miami, Flordia on December 6. In the photos, which were snapped at downtown Miami nightclub E11EVEN, the star is seen rocking a “post-breakup” look, if you will, complete with a waist-length rainbow wig and neon-orange eye shadow. Considering Cardi B is the queen of being a hair chameleon, it comes as no surprise that she would decide to spice up her strands again after the separation.
The “I Like It” rapper recently revealed that her wigs can cost anywhere from $500 to $800 — depending on where she gets them from — and that’s without the styling fee, which she says can cost an extra $200 to $300. That’s $1000-plus right there, folks. And while it’s impossible to guess how much her latest technicolor wig retailed for, it’s safe to say it didn’t come cheap seeing as it’s ultra long and clearly high quality.
