The new mom had been due to play 24 dates with Mars on his North American tour in September.
A few weeks after welcoming her first baby into the world, Cardi B has announced that she’s decided to cancel all of her upcoming autumn tour dates with Bruno Mars, admitting that she’s “underestimated this whole mommy thing”.
The chart-topping rapper gave birth to a baby girl named Kulture earlier this month on July 10th, with her husband Offset from hip-hop trio Migos. Cardi had been due to hook up with Bruno Mars for the North American leg of his 24K Magic tour in the autumn, but she’s not ready to leave her baby at such a young age.
“I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that six weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physically,” the 25 year old star told her fans on Instagram. “I also thought that I'd be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing.”
The chart-topping rapper is responding to a lawsuit lodged against her by her former manager Klenord 'Shaft' Raphael' in April.
Superstar rapper Cardi B has launched a counter-lawsuit against her former manager, whom she claims was “disloyal and deceitful” and even tried to control her romantic life.
Back in April this year, Klenord “Shaft” Raphael had sued the star, real name Belcalis Almanzar, for $10 million claiming that he had been “frozen” out of her career after she exploded into the mainstream over the last year. Raphael claimed credit for discovering the star, and sought to enforce the rapper's management agreement with his company WorldStar that entitled it to 20% of her gross income. He also alleged that Cardi defamed him by telling people that he stole money from her.
Three months later, chart-topper Cardi is looking to have all management and recording agreements made with Raphael declared void by launching a counter-suit worth $15 million, which she filed in court on Thursday (July 5th), according to Variety.
