Cardi B & Offset Have Been Married Since Last September!

We've been played!!

This whole time we've been waiting for the Cardi B and Offset union, and it's already happened! TMZ dug up the marriage certificate from last September!

Via TMZ:
Cardi B and Offset are already married, and documents show they actually tied the knot MONTHS ago -- which explains why he's now calling her his "wife" in public.

We did some digging and found out they got a marriage certificate in Fulton County, GA on Sept. 20, 2017. For you single folks ... the marriage certificate is filed with the court AFTER a couple does the deed as proof the marriage really happened.

When Migos won Best Group Sunday at the BET Awards, Offset said excitedly, "I thank my wife. You should thank yours."
