    Cardi B has fired back at fans who believe she’s in a “mentally abusive relationship” with husband Offset

    On Friday, she responded to criticism over her decision to reconcile with the father of her 2-year-old daughter, Kulture Kiari.

    “Twitter users be like, ‘Cardi, you’re in a mentally abusive relationship. Oh my gosh. We gotta save you,'” she said. “And I be like, ‘All right, but can I f–k him today? Because I need to have sex.’ And n—as in my DMs talking about, ‘What up big head?’ I don’t like that. I’m 28 years old, and my head’s not big. Actually, it is, but not with a lace front. The f–k.”

    The hip-hop star filed for divorce from the Migos rapper in September, saying their marriage was “irretrievably broken.” The move came after he allegedly had been unfaithful yet again.

    theGRIO previously reported… a month after the filing, the duo were spotted together in Las Vegas for Cardi’s recent birthday celebration. The Grammy-winning artist took to social media to explain why she hooked back up with her hubby. Cardi, 28, confessed in an IG Live that it was “hard not to talk to your best friend.”

    In two Twitter audio clips posted on Oct. 16, the “WAP” rapper opened up about her marriage amid accusations that the divorce filing was a PR stunt. 

    “I didn’t really want to talk about my relationship s— because I know y’all sick and tired of me going back and forth with Offset,” she said before slamming fans who describe Offset as “abusive.”

    “Y’all sound f—ing crazy when you start using the word ‘abusive,'” she said. “I’m not in a physically abusive relationship. I’m not in a mentally abusive relationship. I have choices.”

    She also posted a video on Twitter in which she jokes that fans act like she’s married to them.

    “Imma just give ya a apology because ya want me to apologize for living MY LIFE the way that ya live YOURS,” she said to fan in the video. “I’m sorry. I’m not perfect, I don’t want to be neither.”

    Meanwhile, an insider claims Offset is “excited to have Cardi back and be back in her good graces.” 

    “Cardi changes her mind every day whether she wants to be with Offset or not,” a source tells E! News. “She will complain about him for days on end and then snap out of it and want him back. She says they are back together right now, but could change at any moment. She’s going with the flow and hasn’t made any formal decisions on withdrawing her divorce filing yet. Divorce is still on the table.”
