Not all great loves last. In a recent, most to her Instagram page, “Bodak Yellow” rapper Cardi B confirmed that she and her husband Offset had decided to call it quits. Speaking about the end of their year long marriage, the26-year-oldd rapper of Dominican and Trinidadian descent explained that split was amicable and that the two parents were focusing on the future of their daughter.
The rapper took to Instagram Tuesday night to announce that she and Migos rapper, Offset, have separated.
The rapper began the video by addressing rumors around her notoriously rocky relationship with Offset saying “So, everybody been bugging me and everything” she said. “And I been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now.”
She continued: “And we’re really good friends and we’re really good business partners and he’s always somebody that I run to, 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. And it’s nobody’s fault. It’s just like, I guess we grew out of love.”
Around the: 30 mark, Cardi revealed that the couple had decided on parting ways. “I don’t know,” she admitted. “It might take time to get a divorce.”
The couple married last year in September amidst a slew of rumors that Offset had cheated on the rapper but only confirmed their marriage this past summer. Around the same time of the confirmation, the couple became parents to their daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus. In the 42-second video, Cardi B appeared to be at peace with the situation, explaining that it’s “nobody’s fault”. She also went on to state that her and Offset still “have a lot of love for each other” but they’re no longer in love.
She concluded the video by saying, “I’m going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father.”
Offset quickly commented on the post, “Y’all won”, which was apparently addressed to the public rather than Cardi. In the past, Cardi has been open about Offset’s infidelity, but her response to the scandals hasn’t always been productive. She is currently embroiled in a legal battle with two of his mistresses whom she allegedly attacked in August.
Fans of both of the rappers were quick to reveal their disappointment.
Cardi admitting that her and offset have been rocky for a minute now just proves that pictures and happy smiles don’t mean shit. Don’t ever let someone’s social media life fool you. People can put on a front meanwhile their whole relationship is a mess.

Some people made a point about the shocking nature of the split, considering how affectionate Cardi and Offset have been in public.
Some expressed their sadness at the end of a relationship that seemed to be made of steel.

It’s tough to witness a relationship fall apart–especially when a child is involved.
Others gave Cardi props for moving on from a relationship that was starting to seem toxic:
ok if cardi and offset really broke up i’m proud of cardi for trying to move on cause that man did her dirty many times and she still loved the hell outta him, but she’s finally letting go

Many people seem to agree that Cardi B deserves a partner who recognizes how lucky he is to be with her.
And of course, there were those who couldn’t help but drag Offset for blaming their split on the public:
Offset commented on cardi b ig post talking about “y’all won”???????????????????????????????????????? shut up whore

Telling her fans “Y’all won” hardly seems to be the response of a man who’s taking responsibility for his actions.
And of course, there are some fans who are skeptical of the breakup, seeing as they’ve been so recently and publicly affectionate.
This breakup seems like a publicity stunt but whatever.

As of now, fans are waiting with bated breath to find out the real story behind the split.
