Cardi B isn't feeling tearful in the wake of her split from her husband Offset.

Documents show the WAP rapper said their marriage was "irretrievably broken" when she filed for divorce earlier this week in the state of Georgia, where the couple and their daughter Kulture have been living.

In the wake of the news, Cardi B - real name Belcalis Almanzar - thanked fans for their support on an Instagram Live.

"I'm okay. I want to let you know I have not shed not one tear," she said.

The couple wed in secret in 2017 with Cardi B announcing they had tied the knot the following year. They also welcomed their daughter in 2018.

The relationship has not been without its difficulties as cheating rumours have followed 28-year-old Offset - who was born Kiari Kendrell Cephus - and they previously broke-up in 2018 although went on to reconcile.
