The Migos member was scrutinized for a clip showing him struggling with his phone while playing a video game. In the footage, Cardi is heard calling his name before making her way to the room, seemingly causing Offset to scramble and hide his phone.

Unsurprisingly, social media sleuths assumed the worst and accused him of cheating. But Offset downplayed his actions in an Instagram livestream.
“I know y’all making something outta nothing outta that stream when I was playing a game and my girl came in the room and I grabbed the phone, whatever the hell y’all saying,” he said. “I grabbed the phone, I put it up, I put it back. Come on with that. We got so much negative energy out here in the air, sickness.”
He continued, “Don’t bring none of that negativity to my family. We chilling, man. We ain’t in y’all way. Everything positive. We got investments and big moves coming. Y’all just making something outta nothing. That ain’t ’bout nothing. I don’t be doing no negative nothing.”
Offset concluded his message by reiterating he did nothing wrong.
“Ease up on my family,” he stated. “That wasn’t nothing when I grabbed my phone, playing a game. I ain’t even look, make a call, Facetime, anything on my phone. Period.”
