The acclaimed "Up" rapper, Cardi B, disclosed the split during a recent Instagram Live session, surprising fans with the news that she has been navigating single life for some time now.
Cardi B, addressing her followers candidly, remarked, "I don't think it's true, I don't care to find out, because I been single for a minute now." This statement emerged amidst a flurry of social media speculation and rumors, particularly in response to allegations of infidelity involving Offset.

Cardi's Candid Confession
The "WAP" rapper, known for her transparency with fans, admitted her hesitance in sharing the news of the separation.
"I just don't know how to tell the world...But it has been like this for a minute now," she shared during her live session. The announcement followed recent online observations, including the couple's mutual decision to unfollow each other on Instagram and Cardi B's enigmatic Instagram Story hinting at outgrowing relationships.
Cardi B expressed her aspirations for the upcoming year, saying, "I wanna start 2024, like, fresh, open...I'm curious for a new life, for a new beginning. And yeah, I'm excited." Representatives for both Cardi B and Offset have not yet commented on the matter, as reported by USA TODAY.
Interestingly, both artists were present at the TikTok in the Mix music event in Arizona this past weekend. Cardi B notably co-headlined the sold-out event hosted by the popular social media platform, while Offset made an unexpected appearance.
The couple's relationship history has been marked by its ups and downs. They first tied the knot in 2017 and briefly separated in 2018 following the birth of their daughter Kulture, now 5 years old. Cardi B initiated divorce proceedings in 2020 amidst rumors of infidelity, though not citing this as the cause.
"It's not because of cheating," she clarified, "I just got tired of arguing." The pair later reconciled, welcoming their son Wave in 2021. Offset, in addition to his children with Cardi B, has three older children from previous relationships.
The split marks a new chapter for both artists as they continue to navigate their careers and personal lives separately.
