These shocking celebrity breakups of 2018 left us shook
Today news of Cardi B and Offset’s break up hit the streets and left us shook, considering the couple seemed all loved up as recently as the 24th and 25th of November when Cardi last posted about her bae.
Cardi and Offset secretly got married in September 2017 and Cardi gave birth to their daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus who still has not made her social media debut, with not one picture since her birth in July 2018.
What 2018 has taught us, is that everyone should expect the unexpected.
2018 has been a tough year for our celebrity lovers and these couples have called it quits, some after almost a decade of dating one another.
AKA and Bonang announced their break-up in December 2017, but had people thinking that the break up was simply a publicity stunt.
It wasn’t until February 2018, when AKA appeared on Real Talk on 3 with Anele, and addressed that the break-up was real and that he apologises to DJ Zinhle for cheating on her that people really accepted the A-lister were through.

when Love is not enough? WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?? Today.. I made peace with a battle that I have lost, i have accepted defeat. My greatest fear and my greatest loss.. letting go of the man I gave my heart too @edwardbillion it has taken so much from me in convincing my self that I am OKAY? Today I chose to face my fears and accept my truth. Today I let go of my greatest pain, LOVE IS PAIN .. for a while now I have been so insecure, so bitter and lonely, AS the wise WOULD say everything has a season!! THE HELL!!, 😖WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?? 😔My Summer has gone. My first ever experience of being truly in love and being fearless but the very same love has made so small and so sore inside. I have lost me .. today I let go of my future plans, the man I saw as the father of my kids and my future husband.. love of my life.. my best friend!! 😭I am afraid , I am so afraid but I am going to learn how to love me genuinely first before I try and love again. Lord give me strength🙏🏽. #BROKEN #single #afraid #scared 🌪 💔
