Late Sunday night, Cardi B dropped something of a truth bomb when she hopped on Instagram Live and casually informed her fans she’s “been single for a minute now,” though she didn’t specify when she and Offset, her long-term, on-and-off partner, separated. Proving time is a flat circle and men are fundamentally incapable of change, Cardi’s now-ex and the father of her two children faces fresh cheating allegations (specifically alleging an affair with rapper Chrisean Rock), which Offset denied on Monday afternoon. (“Real talk man you need some help!” he told rapper Blueface, who tweeted out the allegation.)

Whatever did or didn’t happen, Cardi has confirmed their split, and even if you don’t believe her, her bold new haircut tells us everything we need to know. In the rapper’s first public outings as an openly single woman, she appears to have gotten a pixie cut—the sort of dramatic stylistic change that’s all too familiar to anyone who’s newly liberated from a toxic relationship. I say toxic because Cardi has been forced to very publicly deal with all sorts of relationship-related bullshit for years now, between routine cheating allegations against Offset, the time Offset interrupted her 2018 Rolling Loud set to beg for her back, or their more recent scuffle over the summer.

As for the latest cheating rumors attached to Offset, Cardi didn’t seem bothered in her Instagram Live. “When it comes [to] today’s events and stuff, I don’t think it’s true,” she said, seemingly addressing his alleged affair with Chrisean. “I don’t care to find out because I’ve been single for a minute now. But I’ve been afraid—not afraid—I just don’t know how to tell the world.” She emphasized, “It’s been like this for a minute now.”

Cardi’s outlook overall seems pretty positive: “I want to start 2024 fresh, open… I’m curious for a new life, a new beginning. And yeah, I’m excited.” I’m now obligated to recite my go-to refrain whenever a very famous couple splits: Good for her!

We are talking about a woman who, just months ago, hopped on yet another livestream, sang Keyshia Cole’s “I Should Have Cheated,” and declared she “can’t fuck no regular degular shmegular.” And, I repeat: Look at that new haircut!!! Cardi is going to be just fine.
