One of Cardi’s says that the 26-year-old star wanted to take Offset back, but she needed to make sure he would never cheat on her again. “Offset got Cardi out here looking bad. He’s not only cheating, but being real reckless,” the so-called friend explains.

Cardi reportedly agreed on the deal and wanted to put the “cheat penalty” in writing. The insider says that Cardi and Offset are no longer “separated” and are now “working on” their marriage again, adding, “It’s not like everything is back to normal. But that’s [Cardi’s] love, and her babys father, and her husband. She’s taking him back.”
