Did Offset cheat on Cardi B?

Cheating allegations began to surface a few months after the pair tied the knot in 2017; however, Cardi stuck by Offset and wanted to work things out with her husband before throwing in the towel.

"I know I look good, I know I'm rich, I know I'm talented. I know I could get any man I want — any basketball player, football player," she said of why she decided to stay with Offset. "But I want to work out my s*** with my man, and I don't got to explain why."


"It's not right, what he did,” she added. “But people don't know what I did, 'cause I ain't no angel."

The pair split in December of 2018, which Cardi B confirmed in a since-deleted Instagram video. “Things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time," she said.

"It’s nobody fault I guess we just grew out of love, but we are not together anymore. It might take time to get a divorce and I’m going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter's father," she added.


The couple then reconciled in January of 2019 after Offset begged for Cardi B to take him back. Now, it looks like Cardi B and Offset are done for good.
