Rapper Cardi B has confirmed that she has split from her husband, Offset. In an Instagram Live video on Monday, Cardi B said that she is now single.
“I’m just saying, I’m single,” Cardi B said. “I’ve been single for a minute now.”
The breakup comes after the couple unfollowed each other on Instagram last week. Cardi B also hinted at the split in a recent interview, saying that she was tired of “protecting someone else’s feelings” and that she was now going to focus on herself.
Cardi B and Offset married in September 2017 in a secret ceremony. They have two children together, Kulture Kiari Cephus, 5, and Wave Set Cephus, 2.
It is only a year since they celebrate their anniversary, Offset posting on instagram saying, “Happy anniversary my beautiful Gorgeous Pretty Wife. Since I met you I grown to become a better man no matter what you have my back and I can trust you with my life blessed to have a loyal strong woman on my side…you blessed me with beautiful kids you are my safe place in this crazy world 🌎 you believe in me more than I do sometimes… I couldn’t imagine a life without you….. we gone continue life together I LOVE YOU”
It is unclear what led to the split, but it is likely that there were multiple factors involved. Offset has been caught cheating on Cardi B multiple times in the past, and the couple has had a tumultuous relationship.
Cardi B is one of the most successful rappers in the world, and she is known for her outspoken personality and her candid social media posts. She has not yet commented on the split in detail, but she is likely to address it in the coming days.
The breakup is a major blow to Cardi B and Offset, but it is also a reminder that even the strongest relationships can sometimes fall apart.
