Offset is currently engaged to rapper Cardi B, who he proposed to during a live show at Power 99’s Powerhouse in Philadelphia, PA. On Christmas weekend 2017, videos were released after Offet’s iCloud was hacking, showing him in a hotel room with another woman, but Cardi assured fans she stood by her man in an Instagram post. However, on Dec. 28, Instagram star Celina Powell claimed she was carrying Offset’s child. His legal team has since sent her a cease and desist letter which she slammed on Twitter. Cardi also slammed Offset on stage during a show, saying “You do that shit again, you gon lose your wife.” While hosting a NYE party in NYC, Cardi was notably without her huge engagement ring. The two stayed together and welcomed their first child to the world in July 2018, a baby girl named Kultura Kiari Cephus.
