AceShowbiz - Cardi B is offering some support to her grieving husband Offset. The New York-born raptress is photographed comforting her spouse at the Los Angeles International Airport three weeks after his cousin Takeoff's tragic death.
In photos published by Daily Mail on Tuesday, November 22, the "Bodak Yellow" femcee was spotted lovingly placing her hand on his shoulder as they made their way through LAX. While navigating through different terminals, the Grammy-winning raptress stuck by her spouse's side as they made their way out of the airport holding hands.
Cardi and Offset, who have been married since 2017, both wore comfy sweats and hoodies. The "WAP" spitter rocked a cozy coral hoodie and sweatpants, while her man dressed in a black Adidas sweatshirt and matching baggy pants. They were looking gloomy during the outing.
A few hours before the airport photos were released, Offset turned to his Instagram feed to share a close-up photo of Takeoff along with a sweet message. "Missing everything bout you specially that smile," read the caption.
The airport sighting arrived three weeks after Offset's cousin and Migos collaborator Takeoff unexpectedly died in a Houston, Texas shooting on November 1. Takeoff was only 28 years old.
Offset was videotaped getting emotional at Takeoff's funeral but he did not speak publicly of his heartbreak until November 15, when he dedicated a heartfelt Instagram post to the late rapper. "Dear Take, the pain you have left me with is unbearable," he began.
"My heart is shattered and I have so many things to say, but I can't find the words. I've been going to sleep and waking up hoping that all of this is a dream, but it's reality, and reality feels like a nightmare," Offset continued. "Every time you would see me, you didn't give me a dap you gave me a hug. I wish I could hug you one last time. Laugh one last time. Smoke one last time. Perform one last time."
The "Open It Up" hitmaker went on to add that he's sure that Takeoff made it to heaven following the tragedy, writing, "I know someone with a soul like yours is in heaven now. I hope you can see how much we love you and miss you. You have left a hole in my heart that will never be filled."
Though Offset, Takeoff and Quavo started Migos as a trio, the status of Offset's relationship with Takeoff and Quavo at the time of Takeoff's death remains unclear, as the two had moved forward as a musical duo without Offset in recent months. However, despite any beef, Takeoff said he and Offset will always be family shortly before his death. "Family always going to be family. We always family. Ain't nothing gonna change," he insisted on the "Big Facts" podcast on October 8.
