Cardi B didn’t want to party after performing at an event during Super Bowl weekend, and according to members of her entourage she had a good reason – the 25-year-old is 3 to 4 months pregnant.
The rapper performed several times in Minneapolis during the big weekend, including at a party hosted by Maxim. But she didn’t want to go to her own VIP room because alcohol was “flowing,” and one of her reps said that she preferred to stay near the stage and drink Fiji water. Could the former Love and Hip Hop: New York star be expecting a baby?
Cardi B, who is engaged to fellow rapper Offset, has quite a few upcoming business deals and commitments, and if she is pregnant, it could cost her big bucks. Sources close to the rapper say that she expects to finish a new album before the end of the summer and then go on a 2-month tour with Bruno Mars starting in September.
Obviously, if you do the math, that would be a major problem if Cardi B is currently entering her second trimester. That would mean her baby is due in August.
She also has multiple commercial deals in the works and offers to collaborate with other artists, plus she is scheduled to begin shooting a movie next month. On top of all that, she is supposed to perform at Coachella in April.
This means a lot of money is on the line, with Cardi getting about $100k per show and $60k for nightclub walk-throughs.
A pregnancy could cost her a ton of cash since the Bodak Yellow singer’s career is currently as hot as ever.
Just hours after the pregnancy reports surfaced, Cardi appeared at the Marc Jacobs FW/18 show at New York Fashion Week in an MJ dress with a big bow placed perfectly on her midsection.
However, there was no obvious evidence of a baby bump, and she recently hasn’t been shy about posting pictures of herself on Instagram.
Cardi B says she is not pregnant and she immediately shot down the rumor when a fan bravely asked her about it on social media.
