Can you place a dollar amount on trust? If so, Offset may be well on his way to winning Cardi B back with his holiday spending spree, which reportedly included jewelry, Christian Louboutins, multiple items from Chanel and several of Hermès’ coveted Birkin bags. The items were cataloged in a now-deleted Instagram post by Cardi, in which she thanked her reportedly still-estranged husband and personal shopping company Prive Porter.


As reported by BET:

Among the gifts were four rare Hermès top-handle Birkin bags, which start at around $12,000 each, nine different pairs of Christian Louboutin heels including a pair of $1,895 over-the-knee graffiti-print boots, two quilted Chanel bags, including one red style featuring Chanel’s classic chevron quilt print and interlocking C’s ($5,600), as well as a classic black double-flap bag ($5,000), and two diamond Cartier Juste un Clou bracelets, which start at $43,000.

But back to those Birkins: they start at approximately $12,000—and can reach as high as $300,000. We haven’t priced the specific styles Cardi was gifted by Offset, but BET estimates his overall spend was around $100,000.

Of course, Offset’s known for being a big spender: This is a man who spent an estimated $11,ooo on a bedazzled face mask for his birthday a few weeks ago, and who could forget the over $200,000 he and Migos brought along for a shopping spree during their “Carpool Karaoke” appearance with James Corden?

So, maybe it’s just an average holiday for him ... or just another round of “please, baby, baby, please” presents we should expect to see as he attempts to win his bride back.


Either way, I think it’s safe to say Cardi has secured the bag(s) yet again.

Maiysha Kai is managing editor of The Glow Up, host of The Root Presents: It's Lit! podcast and Big Beauty Tuesdays, and your average Grammy-nominated goddess next door. May I borrow some sugar?

All that money and he uses a plain rubber band like you get at the post office in his twists?! Dude. Spring for covered or silicon! Dammer. Maybe Chanel makes hair ties, IDK. But those things are terrible. They get stuck and mess up your hair. Scunci has a line of xl sized bands designed for bigger hair. 

Don’t take him back, Cardi. Don’t do it! You can buy your own bags!
