Cardi B has confirmed she’s no longer in a relationship with Offset.
The two American rappers secretly married in September 2017, one month before a public proposal.
Their relationship seems to have been pretty on-and-off again to the public, with rumours she filed for divorce back in September 2020 before calling it off months later.
But on their fifth anniversary just a few months ago, Offset filled their home with flowers as Cardi B announced she was planning a formal wedding ceremony.
However, the ‘WAP’ rapper clarified her current relationship status during an Instagram Live over the weekend.
According to a recording of the stream, Cardi B said: “I’ve been single for a minute now.”
She explained: “But I have been afraid… Not afraid, I just don’t know how to tell the world. But I feel like today has been a sign.
“The last time I got on Live I kind of wanted to tell you guys, but I didn't know how to tell you, so I changed my mind. But it has been like this for a minute now. I just took it as a sign."
Wanting to start off 2024 ‘fresh’ and ‘open’, the 31-year-old added: “I’m curious for a new life, for a new beginning. And yeah… I’m excited.”
Cardi B even acknowledged that she has been giving ‘clues’ about her relationship status recently, with fans previously noticing the pair had unfollowed each other on Instagram.
Rumours have circulated more than ever in previous weeks that the rappers had split.
She added: “I don't know if you guys have been getting clues from me, from my Lives, or from my Stories, when I put some certain music, or find my unfollowings.”
Cryptic messages shared to her Instagram Story earlier this month included: “You know when you just outgrow relationships.”
Yeah, I mean, that seems like a pretty clear ‘clue’.
Another post from the ‘Bongos’ star also read: “I’m tired of protecting people’s feelings. I GOTTA PUT MYSELF FIRST!”
And then to add all that, Offset also shared a scene from Scarface to his Instagram story, about not being able to trust people.
After a series of ups and downs, Cardi B suggested they were going strong a few months after Wave’s birth.
She told E! News in November 2021: “We had to get to know each other better. But I feel like I've never been happier.
"I really feel like [it's] not even just like marriage, it's the family, the unity, the friendship that we have, the 'I have your back, you have my back.'"Featured Image Credit: Catherine Powell/Getty Images for MTV/Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/FilmMagic/Getty Images
