We all know about Cardi’s on-again, off-again romance with hubby Offset, but little has been said about her previous romantic flames. While the popular star hasn’t been linked to many past lovers – there is a common theme among all her exes; they have all been in the hip-hop business, just like Cardi.
21 Crazy Facts About Cardi B You Should Know
So, if you’re wondering who the rapstress has dated in the past, long before her marriage to baby daddy Offset, continue reading Cardi B’s dating history below…
Ex: DJ Self
Who is He? DJ & Reality TV star
Dated In: 2015
When Cardi was trying to climb for fame, she met DJ Self (who was also a cast member) on the reality TV show Love & Hip Hop. At the time, he was one of the most popular DJs in New York City and Cardi was making a good acquaintance, while also getting personal with the famous DJ.
That said, he wasn’t a single lady type of man, but Cardi let it slide so he could play her records on the air. Once she realized he wasn’t going to do that, she ended their affair.
The WAP rapper later bad-mouthed him in the press, accusing him of stealing her rap style for his female protégé Dreamdoll who was the first female that he signed to his label.
Rumored Ex: King Yella
Who is He? Rapper
Dated In: 2015
After Cardi and Offset’s infidelity scandal in 2018, rapper King Yella came to light claiming on his diss track (Cardi B Truth) that he’d slept with Cardi in 2015. He also made an Instagram account and his very first photo was of himself hugging the rapstress all those years ago.
However, Cardi had enough with the constant antagonism and called Yella to get things straight. He then shared a screengrab of their Facetime conversation on his Instagram account.

So, Cardi followed by uploading a recording of their conversation where she told him that she never kissed or slept with him and he was a plain old liar.

Seems like he was trying to get his five minutes of fame!
Ex: Tommy Geez
Who is He? Rapper
Dated In: 2015 – 2016
Cardi got involved with Tommy during her rise to fame on Love & Hip Hop. He helped her while she was recording her first studio album, with a lot of her early music actually appearing to be about the rapper himself. She showed her appreciation for her boyfriend by posting a picture of them on Instagram in 2016 with the caption, “I think I’ll die for you, I think I’ll lie for you”.
Later that year, once Cardi’s career started to take off, the pair called it quits. It’s a good job they did, because Tommy was taken to prison, was released and then got put in jail again for running over a man and his eight-year-old son before cutting the man and driving off.
Who is He? Rapper
Dated In: 2017 – Now
In 2017, Cardi met her soulmate Offset, who is the frontman of the famous rap group Migos. Their first date was at the Superbowl and their relationship went off the ground running ever since. In 2017, Offset proposed onstage during his tour with an 8-carat ring but the pair had secretly tied the knot months before in a private ceremony.
All wasn’t well in paradise when Offset’s iCloud account got hacked, leaking a series of videos of him with other women in 2018. After rumors of the pair splitting circulated, Cardi shocked the world by revealing that she was expecting Offset’s baby. In 2018, the celebs welcomed their baby girl Kulture into their lives, but split a few months later.
In 2020, Cardi filed for divorce, claiming that the pair had drifted, but their divorce case was dismissed and the couple figured things out privately.
A year later, Cardi announced during the BET Awards that she was expecting her second child with her husband, proving that love conquers all!
Rumored Ex: Bruno Mars
Who is He? Singer
Dated In: 2018
Following the cheating rumors and during her split with Offset, speculations were circulating that Cardi and Bruno were more than just friends, especially after their 2018 Grammy’s performance.
While sources claimed that they were flirtatious and had a lot of sexual chemistry backstage, these rumors soon appeared to be untrue. Bruno was sitting next to his girlfriend Jessica Caban during the show and the pair are still going strong today.
There’s no love story here, folks! Turns out, these collaborators are simply good friends who support each other’s work.
Rumored Ex: Samuel
Who is He? Unknown
Dated In: 2020
This particular Samuel remains anonymous, but we do know that he was important enough for Cardi to get his name tattooed on the back of her neck in 2020. In an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Cardi said, “I have, like, three different men tatted on me, you know what I’m saying? They gotta go!”

She then covered up Samuel’s name. Did they hook up during Cardi and Offset’s breakup? Is he a past fling? We’ll never know…
Rumored Ex: Kodak Black
Who is He? Rapper
Dated In: 2021
Cardi’s success and Diamond-certified selling single (Bodak Yellow) was all thanks to Kodak’s inspiration and to celebrate, he purchased a custom diamond bracelet for his pal. “Cardi B I Hope You Like Yo Bracelet #CardiYak @iamcardib ❤️ #FeelinPeachy ⚔️ @shynejewelers,” Kodak wrote in the caption for the photo.
But of course, many fans read too far into this generous gift, claiming that there was something more to their friendship. The gossip eventually died out, and it turned out these two were just great label mates.
So, there you have it! Surprisingly – or not – Cardi hasn’t had a long list of boyfriends (that we know of), with only two real relationships in the limelight. Despite the bumps in the road along the way, Cardi has found her happily ever after and we couldn’t be more pleased for her.
