"Awww. My ship. But if he won't stop cheating. Cut him loose ✂," one person advised, while another cheered, "Good for her, i hope she stays single. f— offset."

A third viewer quoted, "Hopefully she doesn't take him back for the third time, all he does is cheat and cheat and cheat again."

"She outgrew the relationship ??‍♂️," a sixth X user quipped in reference to Cardi's previous Instagram Stories where she discussed the experience of "outgrowing relationships" and expressed fatigue from prioritizing others' feelings over her own well-being.

Speculations at the time suggested that the post may have been directed at her rapper husband, whom she shares daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus and son Wave Set Cephus with. Adding to rumors of potential marital troubles, the duo reportedly "unfollowed" each other on Instagram, an action observed a week ago.

Despite the unfollowing, both Cardi B and Offset still feature pictures of each other on their individual Instagram accounts. Notably, they still have posts from Mother's Day and Father's Day from earlier in the year, as well as the cover image for their collaboration, "Jealousy," indicating that certain aspects of their connection remain intact on both platforms.
