Cardi B is on a roll, releasing debut album, Invasion of Privacy, and revealing her baby bump on Saturday Night Live all within the span of three days. In her latest interview with GQ, the Bronx rapper speaks on her career, past surgeries and her relationship with fiancée, Migos member Offset, revealing that they both have had trust issues with the other in the past.
“For a long time,” she says, “we was in love with each other but we didn’t really trust in each other. It was like a competition of who’s gonna hit each other up first. I don’t want to hit him up first; he will hit me up first. People used to put things in my head: ‘He gonna leave you. He be f*cking with mad b*tches.’ People used to put things in his head: ‘Cardi, she’s a dog. Don’t trust her.’ We never really trusted each other because I always feel like he could get any girl he wants—what makes me think he’s gonna want me? I think he felt the same way. Ni**as want to be with me, and bitches wanna be with him.”
His marriage proposal led to a serious conversation between the two, with Cardi telling her man, “Let’s stop playing. We really love each other. I’m scared to lose you, and you scared to lose me.”
One of the reasons she’s so head over heels for the “Walk It Like I Talk It” rapper is his support of her.

“He’s so attending in my business. I don’t really know the music business too well, so I always feel like people taking advantage of me. He’s always making sure that I’m well taken care of or that I learn something… And I like how we always planning on going half and half on everything. His mom always looking for lawyers for me. It’s like we help each other to be adults.”
