Cardi B Talks About Spending Time With Family In 1st Post-Split Performance


Cardi B is not letting her personal life drama get in the way of her thriving career. 

During her first performance since she announced her split from her husband Offset, the 26-year-old rapper talked about looking forward to spending time with her family for the holidays. While she made no mention of her break-up during her 2018 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Presented by Capital One performance, Cardi made it clear that she is focusing on her loved ones this holiday season, especially her soon-to-be five-month-old daughter Kulture, who will be celebrating her first-ever Christmas.

Cardi also performed some of her biggest hits of the year during her Jingle Ball set, including: "Drip," "Money Bag," "Backin' It Up," "Money, "Motorsport," "Be Careful" and more (if you can believe it!). To cap off the night, the Bronx native performed her career-making hit "Bodak Yellow," which had the crowd going wild!

As fans know, it's been an emotional week for Cardi. After the "Bodak Yellow" rapper announced her split, her husband was accused of cheating on her with multiple women during their marriage. One alleged side-chick, Summer Bunni, even issued a public apology for having an affair with the Migos rapper.  In a video interview with TMZ, Summer cried about feeling responsible for Cardi and Offset's break-up, saying she didn't intend to be a homewrecker. "I have not messed with Offset since he's had his baby. I didn't know how serious this marriage was," she claimed before breaking down in tears. "It took until today to actually get into this... I feel ashamed... I'm very sorry that this has happened."

Relive all of the amazing 2018 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball performances and more during an exclusive nationwide television special on The CW on December 16th at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
