Cardi B Defends Her Publicist for Allowing Offset to Interrupt Rolling Loud Performance
Cardi B is coming to her publicist's defense after video revealed that it was the publicist that led her estranged husband Offset onto the stage when he crashed Bardi's set at the 2018 Rolling Loud Los Angeles Festival this past Saturday morning (Dec. 15).
On Sunday (Dec. 16), the "Money" rapper jumped on Instagram Live to address her issues with the apologetic stunt Offset pulled during her headlining performance, including the unnecessary hate directed at her publicist Patientce Foster, who Bardi says is also a publicist for Offset and her sister, Hennessy. Cardi wasted no time in defending Foster on her Instagram Live, making it clear that they're more than just business associates.
"She's not like any other publicist," Cardi said about Foster. "She's my friend. You know the other publicist I had before her... Bitch did not care about my brand. She did not care about nothing. All she cared about was a check. She kept telling me I had to change my ways and I told her like I got here, the reason why I got on this T.V. show is because of my personality. Bitch wanted me to act like a whole white person that I'm not. So I got somebody that allows me to be myself."
The video of Patientce in question does seem to validate Rolling Loud founder Tariq Cherif's statement that his team had no idea about what Offset had in store for Cardi during her set, and that her management was in on everything.
“We were told she was going to have a guest star during her set, that it was going to be Migos, but we didn’t know anything about that stunt,” Cherif said. “We’re getting blamed as if we conspired to do this, and I just want to make it clear that we did not. Cardi’s management was in on it, it had nothing to do with the festival. The artist is in full control of the stage and they determine who gets on and off.”
Despite her seemingly angry reaction to Offset's onstage apology at Rolling Loud, Cardi also took the time to tell her followers not to troll or bash Offset anymore. On the morning after her set, the Bronx native told her supporters to leave her husband alone and stop with the "fuck shit."
"I wanna say, thank you very much to you guys that been supporting me and loving me, that feel like they need to defend me," she said. "Right, wrong or indifferent. I don't want people to keep doing fuck shit, saying fuck shit. Violating my baby father is not going to make me feel any better 'cause at the end of the day, that's still family."
