Belcalis Almánzar, popularly known as Cardi B, revealed in an Instagram Live session her decision to embark on “a new beginning” after separating from her husband Offset. The announcement comes amid swirling rumors and cryptic posts on Cardi B’s Instagram, signaling the end of their five-year marriage.
In the Live clip shared by a pop culture account, The Bongos rapper expressed her desire for a fresh start in the upcoming year. She disclosed, “I’ve been single for a minute now… I want to start 2024 fresh,” leaving fans speculating about the status of their relationship.
Cardi B addressed her followers on Sunday night, mentioning subtle clues in her social media activities. She shared, “I don’t know if you guys have been getting clues from me, from my lives or from my stories when I put certain music or find my unfollowings… I’ve been single for a minute now… I just don’t know how to tell the world.” The Bodak Yellow rapper added, “I want to start 2024 fresh, open. I don’t know, I’m curious for a new life, new beginning. Yeah, I’m excited.”
The split follows a denial from Offset after rapper Blueface accused him of having an affair with his ex-partner. Offset tweeted, “I ain’t never talk or touch that lady.” Reports also surfaced about the couple unfollowing each other on Instagram last week, intensifying speculation.
Cardi B and Offset, legally known as Belcalis and Kiari Cephus, have navigated a tumultuous relationship since their marriage in 2017. They confirmed their separation in December 2018, reconciled, and faced divorce rumors again in September 2020, ultimately calling it off.
The couple shares two children, daughter Kulture, aged six, and son Wave, aged two. As Cardi B embarks on this new chapter, fans await further developments in the wake of this public announcement.
