"We grew out of love," reveals Cardi B, who took to Instagram to announce she has broken up with her husband Offset.
Cardi B and Offset, who is a member of the hip-hop group Migos, married in secret in September 2017.
The I Like It hitmaker had apparently married her husband in her bedroom, according to a report at the time by TMZ.
The couple are parents to daughter Kulture who was born in July 2018.
In the video posted on Instagram, Cardi B said there was no third party involved, adding that "things just haven't been working out" and that break-up is "nobody's fault".
The video clip, which you can check out below, has so far received over a staggering 15million plus views and counting.
She said: "So, everybody been bugging me and everything, and you know I’ve been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now.
"We are really good friends and we are really good business partners - you know, he’s always somebody that I run to to talk to, and we got a lot of love for each other.
"But things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time. It’s nobody’s fault, I guess we just grew out of love. But we are not together anymore."
She also said: "I don’t know, 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... And, yeah..."
Cardi B only released her debut album earlier this year. But she is already a bonafide megastar, having earned three number-one singles on the US Billboard Hot 100.
The track Bodak Yellow made her the second female rapper to top the chart with a solo output—following Lauryn Hill in 1998.
While the song I Like It made her the first female rapper to attain multiple number-one songs on the chart, and her Maroon 5 collaboration Girls Like You extended that record.
Speaking in the past about her now ex-husband, Cardi B told The Fader, "It's been a blessing, me meeting him and meeting his friends. I see how hard they work.
"And that motivated me to work even harder. And I see how good things are going for them and how popping it is to be number one.
"And I'm like, I want that. A lot of people just see they jewelry and they money, but I don't think a lot of people see how hard they work for that shit every single day."
