In the entertainment industry it is quite “normal” for your man whom may be a successful ball player, rapper/singer, radio personality, or actor to “step out’ on a relationship from time to time.

We see this story played out in the media all the time. “Breaking news: well known sensation gets caught cheating on his gf/wife/lover.” Which is often followed by numerous more allegations , videos or pictures surfacing. The woman seems to have had enough, but then inevitably takes him back and forgives his cheating ways. We have seen reports of this trend from Beyonce and Jay Z, Khloe Kardashian and Tristian Thompson, and Gabriella Union and D-Wade among others. Now with that being said, I understand that people make mistakes and maybe their mistakes are out there because of whom they are, BUT there is no denying that it is also a huge part of the culture. These celebrities are put on such a high platform with women throwing themselves at them all the time. Still doesn’t this leave you wondering when these women will say “F this, I am way to good for you” and hold these guys to the values we always imagined when we were little girls dreaming about our knight in shining armor.

It seems like Cardi B is one of those women that has had enough. I am sure we all remember when the scandal of Offset cheating on Cardi B came to light back in September. Offset’s iCloud was hacked and naked photos of not only Cardi (which she was unbothered by), but also of his involvement with another woman. Cardi confirmed these rumors in the April Cosmopolitan issue and stated although what he did wasn’t right, she hadn’t been an angel either and decided to work it out with her love. Although she decided to work it, she did pour out her heart in her albulm Invasion of Privacy and most notably in the track Be Careful in which she tells says “be careful with me, yeah, it’s not a threat, it’s a warning, be careful with me.”

In the coming weeks and months, everything seemed to be nothing but peaches and cream with the couple. Both posting countless videos and photos on social media of each other, Offset giving a special shootout in his acceptance speech at the 2018 AMA’s and the two welcoming a baby girl (which Cardi just showed via Instagram and she is cute af!!)

Then what may have seen out of nowhere and shocked some while heartbreaking others happed. Cardi B took to Instagram to announce her split with offset stating she still had love for the Migos member and always will. They are great friends and business partners, but seem to unfortunately have fallen out of love. In which a Offset replied in a now deleted comment, “Ya’ll won”. This announcement came just 2 days after rumors started to circulate that Offset tried to cheat again on his wife! Text messages allegedly from offset with another female rapper Cuban Doll surfaced in which he requested a 3- some (without the Bodak Yellow singer). The other woman Offset allegedly requested Summer Bunni posted the conversations and said she posted them because her and Cuban aren’t friends anymore. Since her posting, Summer has made a public (most likely fake and clout chasing) apology.

I personally think that Cardi had enough and remembered the old saying “if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck.” Aka if Offset looks like a cheater and acts like a cheater, he’s a cheater. Although neither party have commented on the rumors, the split itself speaks volumes when just a week ago the two seemed like the perfect couple. I am happy that Cardi did what she felt was best for herself and although it might hurt now, it will payoff in the future. (Speaking of the future, do you guys remember Ciara and Future?? Well she definitely “leveled up” with now husband Russell Wilson) All I have to say is you go Cardi B!! Get yourself a Russell Wilson girl because you deserve it! And to Offset, she did tell you “I’ma throw in the towel, because a n***a only gon’ do what you allow”.

And on that note.. I will just sit here and sip my tea.
