We love love—even better if we’re talking about the rich, famous people type of love. These new celeb couples have been some of the few bright spots in the tire fire that has been 2018 thus far. From Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s whirlwind engagement and (predictable) breakup to Timothée Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp getting caught smooching, this year has basically been like a series of quirky rom-coms—and we have loved every minute. (Of course, like any rom-com, some of these couplings weren’t meant to last the year—or even the month—but we’ll #neverforget.)
2018 has so far been the year of surprises, surprise couples, that is. From Elon Musk and Grimes making their MET Gala debut to finding out Ariana Grande has a thing for funny men, the new year isn’t holding back. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the newest pairings (and some old ones). As the saying goes, ’New Year, New Boo?”
Cardi B and Offset
Late on December 4, Cardi B uploaded a video to Instagram explaining that she and hubby Offset (one-third of the Migos) are splitting up. Who’s really surprised here?
Allegations that Offset had cheated on Cardi have been around since the relationship started. And her apparent reaction to Offset’s alleged infidelity has landed her in troubled with the NYPD. In October, Cardi was charged with endangerment and assault after she apparently ordered an attack on two strip-club bartenders, one of whom apparently slept with Offset.
Cardi and Offset first got together in January 2017 after collaborating on her song “Lick.” In October 2017, Offset proposed. However, that was a trick, because Cardi and Offset actually got married in secret ceremony a month earlier. So in total, the pair were married for about 14 months and share a baby girl, Kulture, who was born in July 2018.
