Cardi B talks about her mental health and criticism on social networks
In a recent interview for The Jason Lee Show, the rapper revealed that it was in 2019 that she started having these suicidal thoughts due to people’s bad comments. “I’m afraid of being vulnerable because people say things like, ‘oh, you’re looking for sympathy,’” she explained.
As pointed out Cardi B., at that moment she felt as if she were “someone dead inside a body”, which began to worry the people around her: “I kept telling people ‘I just want to die, I just wish I was dead, I want to be dead’ ”. Given her situation, her husband Offset tried to help her by taking her to the Dominican Republic to take a break.
“People from my management were calling me. It was really bad. It’s terrible when people make fun of you, ”she commented after assuring that her mental state worsened when rumors spread that she had herpes, she had cheated on her husband and had sold sex for money. These comments were started by a prominent YouTube channel and just a week ago they were proven false in court.
“I was not a celebrity. I was someone who really wanted to be dead. It just made me cry. It was a point where I felt like I was such a weak person that I couldn’t even be a mother.” cardi b.
