Update: Jmblya promoter Scoremore Presents announced Thursday afternoon that Cardi B’s place on the May 5 lineup will be filled by Young Thug, whose recent collaborative mixtape with Future includes a guest appearance by Offset, Cardi B’s fiance and a member of Jmblya headliner Migos.

Hip-hop fest Jmblya still has headliners J Cole, Migos and a lot more at Circuit of the Americas on May 5, but it appears Cardi B is off the bill on account of her pregnancy, which she revealed earlier this month in a “Saturday Night Live” appearance.

The entertainer and social media star posted the following on Instagram last night: “Hey guys after Broccoli fest I won’t be doing no more performances .Thank you for understanding.” Broccoli Fest is this Saturday, April 28, in Washington, D.C.

In her Instagram video, Cardi said, “I’ll be back for the Bruno Mars tour,” feeding speculation that she might return to Circuit of the Americas in October when Mars plays Formula 1 weekend (announced earlier this week).
