Cardi B announced her split from her husband Offset: how messy will this get?

2018 American Music Awards Arrivals

This does not surprise me – Cardi B and Offset are no longer together. What does surprise me is that their relationship seemed to end in a pretty low-key way, and that Cardi has nice things to say about him now. Basically, ever since Cardi and Offset got together, there were rumors (and even receipts) about his infidelity. Cardi confronted some of Offset’s side chicks too, but I honestly didn’t keep up with all of the back-and-forth sh-t. Cardi and Offset welcomed baby Kulture over the summer, and it always sounded like Cardi was raising the baby by herself, with lots of help from her family, but that Offset just wasn’t that engaged with the baby. Cardi confirmed the breakup rumors with an Instagram video, saying in part:

“I’ve been trying to work things out with my baby father for how many now. And we’re really good friends and really good business partners. We’ve got a lot of love for each other but things just haven’t been working out for us for a long time. It’s nobody’s fault. I just guess we grew out of love. But we’re not together anymore.”

Oh, crap – I just saw that Offset and Cardi were low-key secret married in September 2017. I totally forgot about that – probably because for much of this year, it didn’t even seem like they were really living together as a married couple. So this isn’t just a breakup – she’s going to need to hire a divorce lawyer and this is going to be a HUGE mess.

    I just love her statement. It is so reasonable. I think I would really like her, she seems very down to earth. Which makes me think the divorce won’t be that bad. But I know nothing of their dynamic or who is worth more or even the state it would be filed in! So you’re probably right

    • Alissa says:

      I also don’t feel like it’s actually going to be that messy? which is odd. but I really think that they just realized they don’t work in a relationship and there wasn’t anything crazy. I do wonder if her out shining him in terms of success was a big issue or not.

    • Kitten says:

      “Down to earth”? I mean, I like Cardi (for the most part) but she’s pretty extra. Real? Yes she is real, but also extra AF.

      • TheRickestRick says:

        I though I liked Cardi too but reports of her attacking side chicks (this always bothers me, side chick didn’t cheat on you, your man cheated on you) and shilling horrible diet methods on instragram (while complaining in other articles about losing too much weight?!) have caused me to think again

      • Kitten says:

        Yeah I saw similar comment downthread and I have to admit: I don’t know the details as I don’t follow her closely. If these things are true, then that changes my opinion as well. I always found her interesting and refreshing in the interviews posted here. Maybe not so much now.

      • Adee says:

        True @TheRickestRick There are only so many side chicks you can go off on until you realise you gotta go directly to the source of the problem, the one who took vows with you.

        It also urked me how Offset responded saying to the public “you won”
        Ummmm, NO, this was done by your actions and yours alone. The public isn’t in your relationship.

  2. rachel says:

    Her “statement” (video) seemed pretty calm and mature – hopefully it will stay that way.

  3. Erinn says:

    This is going to be messy af. There’s no way it won’t. This is just the calm before the storm – she might be at peace with it now, but as soon as he’s ‘officially’ moved on, I think she’s going to flip her lid.

    You don’t go around assaulting strippers (and skipping out on court), throwing shoes at people, and being that reactive to suddenly being level headed and calm overnight.

    • ByTheSea says:

      This. But let’s hope that she finally realized her behavior would ultimately mess with her paper and he wasn’t worth it. You cheat on me with a stripper, I’m not fighting the stripper, I’m leaving you. That’s it.

      • Erinn says:

        I really really hope that’s the case ByTheSea. I do like hearing her music when it pops up on the radio – she genuinely sounds like she’s having a ball making music. And it makes me happy. I don’t really like her as a person so much, but I do genuinely wish her the best. I think it’d probably be useful for her to have some talk-therapy or something if she doesn’t already – and possibly some sort of family therapy to maybe curb problems before they start. I really do hope that her statement was a case of her finally realizing it’s just not worth it – she has a little girl to watch out for now.

    • Snowflake says:

      I agree with you, it’s gonna get ugly

    • Kitten says:

      Agree, Erinn. Hope we’re wrong though–for the sake of their little one.

  4. RBC says:

    Waiting for Nicki Minaj to throw some not so subtle shade about Cardi’s announcement.

  5. Loopy says:

    I mean there are certain guys that have red flags all over them, like that rapper Future too. Yes i know don’t generalize but come on, how do you get involved with these young, rich athletes and rappers with multiple women who have had their kids and they never got serious with them. H e only married Cardi cause she unlike the others is rich and famous same with Ciara and being the only one to get engaged to Future. RUN!

    • Claire Voyant says:

      Lol please don’t assume all the sidepieces are after a ring. Hardly. Two children with two rich guys X 18 years is much better math than one child with a rich guy who continues to do as he pleases while you fume over the prenup.

  6. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    I kinda think this might be because of that lawsuit brought by those two women who said Cardi paid people to assault them because Offset cheated with them or something. Hopefully Cardi realized her man was more at fault and she was ruining her career being wrapped up in lawsuits.

  7. Nichole says:

    Not related to this, but in other Cardi news this week: her being given a warning for skipping out on court rather than the bench warrant that 99.9% of the population would have been subject to REALLY bothered me. Shame on that judge!!

  8. notpretentious says:

    Is she…naked in that video?? Is that what they’re doing now?!

  9. Kittycat says:

    Cardi B and Offset are the fulfillment of Ariana Grande and Pete Davison.

  10. Bubble bee says:

    I just saw a video of them looking loved up on a yacht so this does surprise me. I thought they had worked through their issues.

  11. skipper says:

    That’s too bad. Even if with all the messiness in their relationship, I was always rooting for them to stay together. I wish them both the best and their sweet baby as well.

  12. Jane says:

    This is the third time she’s announced they’ve split since they got married, so they could be back together next week.

    A while ago I’d have said she could do better, but between hiring thugs to assault women and mocking a woman’s dead baby…well, they deserve each other.

  13. wheneight says:

    Good for her! About time. Don’t date a rapper next time around, Cardi. Or an athlete.

    • BaeBae says:

      Well she herself is a rapper so there’s a huge chance she’ll date another rapper. Which is fine because not all rappers are the same. She just chose one with a history of cheating.

  14. Elsie says:

    I wouldn’t even go out for coffee with someone named Offset (did he work in accounting or what?) in the first place. Same with Kate Winslet’s Rocknroll guy. What’s wrong with these people?

  15. ValiantlyVarnished says:

    I don’t think it will be messy. I think all the messiness happened during the relationship which is why it’s over. I think Cardi is tired and is probably just over it at this point. She has a daughter that she loves and it’s clear that’s her priority. She probably feels like she doesn’t have the time or energy to deal with him and his infidelities anymore.

    • ...otaku fairy says:

      That’s what I’m kind of thinking too, based on Cardi’s calm break-up announcement. They had their messiness during the relationship, and after all the drama (including Cardi rightfully being called out for using violence to deal with her husband’s infidelity), they may both realize that it’s not worth it.

  16. Ren says:

    I mean, I don’t think anyone is surprised. Those two don’t seam like they are serious about their personal life

  17. a reader says:

    They’re both trash, that’s all I’ve got.

  18. BANANIE says:

    I was annoyed by her Cosmo article where she talks about his cheating and is all “I know I could get any man I want.” Ugh. Maybe true, but sounds so self-absorbed.

    The next part about working things out with her fiancé was mature, I think. Because ultimately it’s her decision. I don’t personally believe a relationship can come back 100% after infidelity – how are you not constantly paranoid? How is trust truly rebuilt?- but I respect that she thought she should try.

  19. Kerfuffle says:

    I am dying at his response. “Y’all won” – lif we finished that sentence it would be “Y’all won, my wife isn’t going to put up with all of my side pieces now.”

  20. LaraK says:

    Four kids by four women.
    Wanna bet the fifth one comes along in 2-3 years?
    Or sixth? I may have lost count.

    Hope she has an iron clad prenup

  21. Madpoe says:

    Welp, another baby daddy set free….

  22. minx says:

    And I thought this was a love for the ages.

  23. JoJo says:

    They’re not done, they will be together again before the end of the year.

  24. Detriotgirl says:

    I’ve been following Cardi since she was an actual stripper herself, and she used to routinely joke about stealing people’s man in the club. I like her, but I do think there is a hint of karma to all of this… Cardi gave no f*cks about destroying relationships when she was single, so I’m not about to feel sorry for her that she wound up married to one of the dudes she used to brag about bagging. I appreciated her statement though. It was very mature and shows growth on her part. As for Offset’s comment… LMFAO, he acts like the world made him ask for threesomes with strippers! Just own your crap and move on, offset! He did it to himself!

    • me says:

      She was weeks away from giving birth when he was texting women for 3 ways. But I guess the public made him do it lol ok.

  25. Yes Doubtful says:

    Gee, can’t believe it didn’t work out after he cheated on her with multiple women and has 4 other baby mamas. It wasn’t meant to be?? I hope she learns something from this.
