Cardi B is a multi-millionaire that lives an extravagant life. She has expensive cars and clothes, but does the rapper own a private jet?
Cardi B owns a private jet. She frequently flies private and enjoys the comfort of her own jet.
Cardi B Flaunts Her Private Jet
Cardi B does not just talk about her jets. The rap star also takes to social media to give fans a glimpse inside her glamorous ride in the sky.
Cardi B posed inside her jet in 2019 with her baby, Kulture. She captioned the photo with a clever rhyme about flying private because she needs legroom and space to spread out with her baby.
Cardi B posted another jet photo a few months later. This time Cardi was in her bed aboard the plane, snuggling with Kulture.
Cardi’s photos show how spacious and luxurious her private jet is. The photo above also captures one of the crew members who are paid to serve Cardi and her guests throughout the flight.
Cardi clearly takes time to unwind on her flights, but she also likes to have fun. In 2019 she posted a video of herself twerking and having a blast aboard her private jet.
Cardi B’s Jet Was a Major Investment
Cardi B’s jet was not cheap. Her private plane actually costs nearly all of Cardi’s net worth.
Reports say that Cardi’s private jet cost $20 million. This is a hefty price, even for the millionaire rapper Cardi B.
Cardi B’s net worth is reported to be $24 million as of 2020. Although Cardi B could afford the plane by herself, it would take most of her money to buy it on her own.
Cardi B may have bought her jet by herself, but she could have also received some financial help from her husband Offset. His net worth is $26 million and the pair share the plane to take family trips together.
Whether Cardi B and Offset split the purchase of the jet or not, the husband and wife seem to share their wealth. Early in their marriage Offset bought Cardi a Lamborghini Urus worth more than $200,000.
Flying Private is Still Expensive
Fans may not realize that flying in a private jet is still costly, even when you own the plane. After the initial purchase of the jet for $20 million, Cardi B still has to pay for fuel, a crew, maintenance, and a spot to park the jet in a hanger.
All things considered, each flight in Cardi B’s private jet is an expensive splurge. Cardi B came forward and said that a flight in her private jet can cost $15,000 or as much as $65,000.
Cardi B Still Flies Commercial
Even though she owns a private jet, Cardi B does not always fly in it. She explained that a single flight is very expensive, so she will not use the jet unless she is flying with at least three other passengers.
Cardi B took a break from flying private after her jet had to make an emergency landing in November of 2018. Her private flight from Los Angeles to New York had to make an emergency stop in Chicago when one of her crew members was sick.
Cardi B took to her instagram story to complain about the incident. She said she would fly commercial more in the future because these types of situations do not usually happen on larger flights.
Although Cardi B owns her private jet, the star still flies commercial for financial as well as convenience reasons. She loves to flaunt her jet but is also realistic and does not use it all the time.
