The reports prompted Cardi to confirm the marriage on Twitter, saying, "This why I name my album 'Invasion of Privacy,' cause people will do the most to be nosey (sic) about your life."

"There are so many moments that I share with the world and then there are moments that I want to keep for myself! Getting married was one of those moments! Our relationship was so new," she said in a statement attached to the tweet Monday. "Breaking up and making up and we had a lot of growing up to do, but we was so in love we didn't want to lose each other.

"Was one morning in September we woke up and decided to get married. We found someone to marry us, and she did. Just the two of us and my cousin. I said I do, with not dress no make up and no ring! I appreciate and love my husband so much for still wanting for me to have that special moment that every girl dreams of when he got down on his knee and put a ring on my finger and he did that for me!!" she said, referring to their onstage engagement at Power 99's powerhouse concert in Philadelphia.
