Cardi B has claimed that she had to hire a private investigator after her address was posted online by an alleged Donald Trump supporter earlier this year.
The “WAP” artist said in an Instagram live that her outspoken views on politics, including her dislike of the US president, had made her a target for trolls who leaked her personal information.
“They be making fun of me. I ignore them. I don’t give a f***,” she said. “Let me tell you something. S**t gets so intense that a Trump supporter posted my address and encouraged people to dox my home, to put my house on fire.”
She continued: “I literally hired a private investigator, and serve them with a warrant and arrest this boy. This boy was a f***ing teenager. His parents were shook.”
In the same interview, Cardi addressed her feud with right-wing political commentator Candace Owens, who recently branded the rapper “illiterate” after she interviewed presidential candidate Joe Biden.
“I have millions of followers. I pay millions in taxes. I have the No 1 song in this country, I have the No 1 song in the United Kingdom, I have the No 1 song in Australia, I have the No 1 song in New Zealand,” Cardi said.
“Just like I can make millions of people pop their p***y … I can make millions of people go vote.”
She dismissed Owens’ claim that Biden was “pandering” by taking part in an interview with the pop culture star, then said that “the guy you f***ing love so much, he panders too”.

She later tweeted: “This what PANDERING looks like .I will never praise no politician not even Obama, FDR or Bernie ONLY THE LORD!This is how Trump panders with black people while Candice concerns how Joe panders with me.”
Cardi is currently enjoying the global success of her latest single, “WAP”, a collaboration with fellow rapper Megan Thee Stallion.
