After just one year of marriage, Cardi B and her husband Offset are calling it quits. The 26-year-old Bodak Yellow hitmaker broke out the news through an Instagram video, in which she said they ‘grew out of love’. She began the video by saying:
So everybody been bugging me and everything and you know I’ve been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now.
Cardi B continued saying things just didn’t work out between them:
We are really good friends and we are really good business partners— you know he’s always somebody that I run to talk to, and we got a lot of love for each other but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time.
She added that it is no one’s fault:
It’s nobody fault I guess we just grew out of love but we are not together anymore. I don’t know it might take time to get a divorce and I’m going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father.
Cardi’s video got a lot of responses, even from Offset himself as he commented:
While the split caught everyone by surprise, many fans are convinced that this is just another Cardi B joke, as she is known for pulling pranks on social media. One fan wrote:
Naaaa this is a stunt because how u say s— haven’t been working out for a long time? Y’all was just posted up lovey dovey! I know u Cardi…. u don’t do fake love! I call bulls—.
The split announcement comes just days after Cardi shared a pic of her and Offset kissing at a recent Lakers game. She also posted a video and captioned it:
Fine ass I’ll suck ya d— right thruu this phone… hubby album coming 12-14.
In July, Offset and Cardi welcomed their first daughter together, Kulture Kiari. A month before giving birth to her daughter, Cardi revealed that she and Offset were actually married. At the time, she wrote:
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!
She went on to say:
Our relationship was so new 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.
In January, Cardi B confirmed that Offset was at the center of yet another sex tape cheating scandal as she asked fans to respect her privacy by writing:
I’m going to make a decision in my own times with my heart and mind. I don’t need to be rushed or be told what to do. It’s my life! I belong to me not the world.
Even previously, Cardi B defended her decision to stay with Offset despite cheating scandals, writing:
Well if people are talking about it and keep asking me how i feel about the situation why not let them know? Right or wrong? No it’s not right for a n—a to cheat… But what you want me to do? Go f–k me another n—a? start all over again and get cheated on again?
She concluded the comment by saying:
This s— happens to everyone and i be too You too… People handle they relationship different soo.
