Why Did Cardi B and Offset Break Up? Inside Their ‘Tumultuous’ Marriage

Cardi B and Offset’s marriage was reportedly doomed from the start. The now-estranged spouses appear to have officially called it quits on their relationship. But the duo has split then reunited multiple times in the past. So, fans are wondering if this breakup is final. Keep reading to finds out everything we know about the rappers’ separation and the reason why they broke up. 

The “WAP” artist announced that she was single in December 2023, confirming that she and her husband had split. She and Offset also unfollowed each other on Instagram, and she shared a message about “outgrowing relationships” via her Instagram Stories. After their breakup made headlines that month, PEOPLE reported that the former pair were “tumultuous” throughout their entire romance. 

“They’ve broken up and gotten back together and broken up again way more than the public has seen,” an insider told the outlet. Nevertheless, the source insisted, “They’ve had really good times together.”

Rumors swirled online that Offset cheated on Card with fellow music artist Chrisean Rock. However, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper explained that she didn’t “think” he stepped out on their marriage during her Instagram Live, in which she announced her newly single status. 

As PEOPLE’s source revealed, the former couple have split more times than the public is aware of. Their first known breakup was in 2020 when Cardi filed for divorce from Offset. According to the divorce documents obtained by Hollywood Life that year, Cardi filed for the dissolution of her marriage and noted in the paperwork that there were “no prospects for a reconciliation.” 

However, the “JEALOUSY” artists reconciled later that year and abandoned the divorce. Nearly three years later, Cardi made headlines in June 2023 when she slammed Offset for publicly accusing her of cheating on him. She shared a recording via X (previously known as Twitter), in which she playfully sang, “First of all, let me say, you can’t accuse me of all the things you know that you are guilty of.”

That August, Offset clarified that he and Cardi mended their relationship and had reunited. He explained that even though they had ups and downs, he still loved her. “It’s my wife, I love her to death, and we’re going back and forth,” he noted. “If you got a New York woman … she’s a pit bull.” 

By the end of that year, the duo seemingly called it quits for good. 

Neither Cardi nor Offset has officially filed for divorce yet. The only documents that were ever filed were by Cardi in 2020, which were eventually dismissed.

The former couple share two children together : their daughter, Kulture Kiari, and their son, Wave Set.
