Over the weekend, Cardi B took to Instagram to share the truth with her fans. During a live session, she confirmed that she has, in fact, been single “for a minute now.” While unsure of how to break the news, Cardi B expressed her desire to start the new year with a clean slate and an open mind.

The Journey of Cardi B and Offset
Cardi B and Offset officially tied the knot in 2017, but their marriage encountered difficulties due to allegations of infidelity. Cardi B filed for divorce in 2020 but subsequently withdrew the petition. Together, they share two children, 5-year-old Kulture and 2-year-old Wave.
Earlier this year, Offset hinted at the possibility of Cardi B being unfaithful, which she vehemently denied. This led to an online feud between the two, but they eventually reconciled.
