Here's A Timeline Of Cardi B And Offset's Roller-coaster Romance

"We more like Belly, Tommy and Keisha shit."

News that Cardi B has offically called a quits with her rapper husband, Offset, still has the internet shook! 

Completely unexpected, on Tuesday night (Dec. 4) the Bronx femcee took to Instagram to share with her fans a video breakup announcement and, according to Cardi, not only was it “nobody’s fault,” but the split was mutual for the couple who are the parents of 5-month-old baby girl Kulture Kairi Cephus

Offset continued the shock after stating under Cardi's video post, “Y’all won.”

Are we the only ones disappointed to see hip-hop's fave "It" couple split after such a short-lived run? We didn't think so. That's exactly why we decided to highlight the couple's overall relationship timeline, from the happy times to the drama-filled moments.
