The “Bodak Yellow” rapper made some serious money moves when she gifted Kulture a yellow Birkin with a bedazzled rainbow design on the front, which she posted on her Instagram on Tuesday with the caption, “Me & my best friend for life.”
Michelle Berk, CEO of Privé Porter, a private reseller of luxury handbags specializing in Hermès products, told Page Six on Thursday that Cardi called her after Kulture spotted a small rainbow purse at Claire’s and begged her mother for it. But the “I Like It” artist thought her daughter shouldn’t settle for less and decided to cop her a designer version that took more than 100 hours to place 30,000 rainbow-colored crystals on the custom bag, which costs $48,000.
Offset bought Kulture her first Birkin, a small pink handbag, for her 2nd birthday last year, and it caused an online uproar that Cardi quickly put a lid on.
“If I’m fly and Daddy’s fly, then so is the kid! If I’m wearing Cha-nay-nay, my kid is having the same thing,” she said in her Instagram Story rant. “It’s not up to what the kids like. If it was up to kids, they’d be outside in diapers. No! If I was looking like a bad b—h, an expensive b—h, and I have my kid looking like a bum bum, then you all be causing s–t…. So I’m not mad that Daddy bought baby a Birkin. She gonna match Mommy!”
