Late last week, Cardi B sparked rumors online that she was thinking about divorcing Offset amid rumors that he cheated with Saweetie.
But Cardi B quickly returned to Twitter to address the speculation (kind of) and ask – why can't we just shoot the breeze about life topics, why do people always have to speculate?

Cardi B Addresses Online Speculation Over Divorce from Offset
My take on the topic….also can we have regular life conversations wit each other without people makin scenarios? It’s good to talk to each other but don’t be weird pic.twitter.com/hRfxMBgn8g— Cardi B (@iamcardib) August 26, 2022
Cardi B posted Friday, "How do people really feel when their parents get divorce?"
The question came amid a flurry of rumors online that Cardi's husband Offset had cheated on her with fellow rapper Saweetie.
People responded with a mix of positive experiences and negative ones, but Cardi kept her lips sealed as to why the question was being asked which led many to assume that it was about her relationship with Offset.
However, now the rapper herself has posted about the question and explained her thought process – although whether people buy it or not depends on who you ask.
Cardi posted a video over the weekend with the image obscured, explaining, "K guys so the reason why I asked about the divorce question to be honest with you is because I have a cousin, we're both the same age and everything. And our parents separated around the same time. So when my parents got separated when I was thirteen, and when her parents separated when she was thirteen, she was really hurt about it, and she was really sad about it and depressed about it." But, Cardi adds, "When my parents got separated, I wasn't really sad about it because I just felt like I had more freedom."
According to the video, Cardi was just discussing divorce with her cousin – completely unrelated to alleged marital woes – and wanted to get input on the topic. It's somewhat believable.
Why Can’t Celebrities Post Without People Speculating?

But Cardi went beyond explaining her post, adding that she wishes that people could just have discussions on life situations without rumors flying.
Cardi expressed her frustration over the rumors from last week. "But that's why I wanted to ask cause we was just having a conversationabout it, just me and my cousin. Can we sometimes have conversations on Twitter … without you guys making something that is not something?" Cardi continued, "Can you guys just stop assuming weird things? Like, yeah."
Unfortunately, it's par for the course with celebrities. It's a combination of the fact that people feel like they know celebrities personally and know far too many details about their lives but also know only what they put on social media or in the news.
It's like guessing what someone's face looks like after only hearing their voice and filling out the details on your own.
Celebrities live in the public eye so they often forget that their thousands of followers on social media aren't actually a group of pals they can turn to when discussing life's day to day. Or at least, if they do – it will come with the baggage of rumors and speculation.
The way society treats celebrities is unlikely to create a situation where they can chat idly without people speculating, even if it would be a relief to those celebrities. It would be nice to be able to speak or post without worrying about how people are going to interpret it, but that's unlikely to be reality any time soon.
