Update: Rolling Loud has denied involvement in the interruption and revealed Cardi B’s management was in on Offset’s stunt.
Rolling Loud co-founder, Tariq Cherif, told the Los Angeles Times that Cardi B’s management was in on Offset’s stunt and denied involvement from Rolling Loud organizers.
“We were told she was going to have a guest star during her set, that it was going to be [Offset’s full group] Migos, but we didn’t know anything about that stunt” he said. “We’re getting blamed as if we conspired to do this, and I just want to make it clear that we did not. Cardi’s management was in on it, it had nothing to do with the festival. The artist is in full control of the stage and they determine who gets on and off.”
Cherif issued another statement via Rolling Loud’s Twitter account Sunday night.

See the original story below.
During her headlining set at Rolling Loud Festival in Los Angeles, the Migos rapper can be seen crashing the stage with a display of flowers, cake, and a large sign reading “TAKE ME BACK CARDI.” Offset tells Cardi, at the foot of a massive crowd, “I just want to tell you I’m sorry, bruh. In person, in front of the world.”
But after a brief pause and a few inaudible words exchanged, the lights go dark and Offset is cleared from the stage along with any remnants of his gesture. Regardless of which corner you’re in, it’s a little hard to watch. Cardi chimed in after the performance on Instagram, asking fans not to berate the father of her child. She announced their separation earlier this month after rumors of his cheating began to circulate. They were married for about a year before the split.
Watch a clip of Offset crashing Cardi’s performance, and promptly being removed from the stage, below.
