Cardi B spends about $250,000-$300,000 a month to pay for her extravagant lifestyle as well as take care of her family.
The rapper explained in a Twitter video: “Artists like me, and a lot of rappers that I know, they literally take care of their whole family and that’s not tax [deductible] ’cause the IRS don’t consider that ‘a business'. On top of that, being an artist, looking good for y’all, doing all this extra s–t to please y’all, that s–t costs money.”
She added,“Me for example, my bills is like, I would say about $300,000, $250,000, every single month, and I try to put it cheaper and it’s just, it’s not.”
Cardi’s money talk came after she ranted about internet trolls criticizing celebrities for spending large amounts of money on themselves instead of donating their money for a good cause.
She said,“I hate when celebrities do something very extravagant…there’s people in the comments going like, ‘you could have donated that,’ or ‘We going backwards. You could have done this and that with your money,’ and it’s like, who are you to tell people what to do with their hard-working a– money?”
Cardi explained that 45% of her earnings are taken away from her by the IRS which means that “in order to spend $500,000, you got to make at least a million."
