Cardi B’s husband ‘target’ of shooting


The shooting, which occurred outside of the Crossover Entertainment Group recording studio in Atlanta, reportedly happened shortly after Offset, 27, stepped outside for fresh air, according to gossip site TMZ.

The outlet said multiple people who were inside the establishment fled to another room when the gunshots began.

Law enforcement officials confirmed the shooting to Fox News in a statement and said the investigation is “ongoing”.

However, authorities were unable to confirm if Offset — whose real name is Kiari Cephus — was involved.

Officers told the news organisation that when police arrived at the scene, the Father of 4 rapper was nowhere to be found and while police have yet to speak with him, they plan to during the course of their investigation.

Meantime, Cardi B was in New York this week where she attended the Met Gala, the annual hot-ticket ball hosted by US Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
