Cardi B is putting herself first.
American rapper, Cardi B and her husband, rapper Offset, have unfollowed each other on Instagram, fuelling speculations of a rift between them.
This comes after Cardi B posted two cryptic messages on her Instagram story, discussing the importance of self-focus and outgrowing relationships. The posts immediately got fans worried about the state of her six-year-long marriage to the former Migos rapper.
“You know when you just outgrow relationships,” she wrote on one slide, which was followed by, “I’m tired of protecting people’s feelings… I GOTTA PUT MYSELF FIRST.”
Offset, on the other hand, also posted his own cryptic message on his Instagram story—a clip from the movie Scarface where Al Pacino‘s character said, “Hey, f**k you, man! Who put this thing together? Me! Who do I trust? Me!”
This development comes merely two months after Offset surprised Cardi with an extravagant flower arrangement in their house, for her birthday on October 12, 2023. On that day, she expressed her gratitude by fawning over him and penning a heartwarming note on Instagram.
“Thank you soo much babe. You always go beyond for me. I love your skin, I love your face, I love your body, your ankles, I love your soul, I love your heart, I love your fart, I love your faith, I love your talent, I will BITE anybody for you lmaaooooo,” her post read.
The couple has admittedly had a rocky marriage over the years, but have managed to pull through each issue. Back in 2020, Cardi B filed for divorce on the grounds of repeated infidelity on Offset’s part, but that was shoved to the side after they settled their differences. Since then, they’ve had rough patches on and off, with the most recent being in June 2023, when Offset publicly accused her of cheating on him—an accusation she blatantly denied on Twitter, reminding him not to “accuse her of things he knows that he is guilty of.”
Now, this past weekend, speculation that the marriage was unsettled began after Cardi attended the Balenciaga Fall 2024 Show in Los Angeles alone, an event in which she walked the runway. The move sharply broke away from the pattern of attending events together that the couple has become known for.
Now that rumours are flying, fans can only hope that the speculations are simply untrue.
