Cardi B has defended her estranged husband Offset after he interrupted her gig in Los Angles to beg her to take him back.

The Migos rapper appeared onstage at Cardi B's concert at the weekend and surprised her with a cake and floral bouquet which read: "Take Me Back Cardi."

He said to her: "I just wanna tell you I'm sorry, bro, in person, in front of the world. I love you. Whatever I gotta do to show you that, I'm there."

Despite the grand gesture, Cardi had the flowers removed from the stage and continued with her show.

She has now taken to Instagram to defend Offset against the online backlash that ensued, saying in a video: "I know I see a lot of people bashing me because I'm defending my baby's father, they think I'm gonna get back together with him. I'm not saying that I'm gonna get back together with him, I just don't like that bashing online thing.

"You just saw Pete Davidson [Saturday Night Live comedian] was talking about how he don't want to be on this earth because mad people be coming at him every single day.

"I wouldn't want my baby father to have that feeling because of millions of people be bashing him every day, that's a nasty feeling and I wouldn't want that."

Offset, who is one-third of the Atlanta hip-hop group Migos, also took to Twitter to say he was just "trying", writing: "All of my wrongs have been made public, I figure It's only right that my apologies are made public too."

The couple married in secret in September 2017 and have a child together, five-month-old daughter Kulture who they welcomed in July.

Cardi B announced that they had separated in an Instagram video earlier this month.
