Hurricane Ida showed no favorites — taking no favorites as she swept over the east coast, leaving a trail of devastation in her wake.
And Cardi B revealed the damage the hurricane did to her Atlanta home.
“The storm is no joke,” the rapper wrote as she shared images of flooding in her mansion. In the video, water leaks into a guest bathroom and bedroom. “Oh my God, it’s starting to stink,” she says.
The home was purchased in 2019 by Cardi and her husband, Offset, for $5.8 million. The mansion boasts 22,000 square feet plus five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and four half-baths.
In June, Cardi B announced that she and her husband Offset managed to sort out their problems and make baby no.2.
“We listened to each other, communicated, prayed and then God blessed us and our family with another little blessing,” she captioned a post of Offset cradling her baby bump. “Our home feels so blissful and very busy 😩but we are ready and so happy!! Thank you soo much everyone for the congrats and well wishes 🤗”
Cardi’s pregnancy reveal happened live on stage at the BET Award 2021.
Cardi and Offset already share Kulture Kari, their three-year-old daughter.
She also shared a maternity pic with Kulture, where she wrote about the bond she knows the siblings are certain to share.
“I just know these two will love each other soo much and argue soo much since they’re 3 years apart…just like me and Henny 😩. But one thing for sure is they’ll have each other’s back like no one else ever will 🙏🏽🙏🏽” she captioned the post.
We hope the flooding didn’t cause her and the baby any distress.
According to the Associated Press, At least 23 people died in New Jersey, and at least 13 people were killed in New York City. Police say that of the 23, at least 11 of them died in flooded basement apartments.
In a speech from the White House, President Joe Biden called the storm “devastating.”
“This destruction is everywhere,” he said. “It’s a matter of life and death and we’re all in this together. This is one of the great challenges of our time.”
