Yesterday on Instagram, Cardi B posted photos and video of the new home she purchased for her mom, fulfilling what she says was a childhood dream. In a video tour of the lovely, spacious new house, Cardi recounts a bit of her journey, including the struggle to get her money up so that she could afford a space worthy of her mother, and baby Kulture’s grandmother:
“This is the happiest day of my life. Last year, I was so thirsty to buy my mama a home, and I could only afford a house that cost six hundred thousand and you know, we live in New York, so cribs that look like that look like shit. I waited, I waited, I waited till I could afford a dream home, and I copped it...I’m emotional.”
Me too, Cardi. Me too. This offers such poignant commentary on the hellish reality of the New York City housing market; it is fully conceivable that a home with a $600,000 price tag could possibly have a toilet in the kitchen, or a front door located on the roof or something. Invite me over for Christmas, Cardi!
Cassie Ventura, 32, took to social media to offer her condolences regarding the untimely death of Kim Porter. It was Cassie’s first public mention of the tragedy since Porter died last Thursday. She posted the following to Instagram:
She took care to mention all of Diddy’s children, those mothered by Kim as well as Misa Hylton and Sarah Chapman. It has been reported that despite their recent breakup, the singer has attempted to be supportive and present for Diddy through this trying time. Diddy and Porter have a total of 4 children together, the youngest being twins Jessie and D’Lila who are 12. Porter’s home going ceremony was held on Sunday at one of the Combs residences.
