Cardi B, Offset hold hands at Met Gala after-party, fueling reconciliation rumors

NEW YORK — Cardi B and estranged husband Offset might just be on again — or at least that’s how it looked when they arrived together at the Met Gala after-party, five months after announcing their latest split.

The Bronx-raised “WAP” rapper, 31, and Migos alum, 32, were spotted holding hands at Casa Cipriani on Monday, where they attended Richie Akiva’s 10th Annual “The After” celebration, following the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s fashion extravaganza. The two were also seen walking in together to nightclub Silencio for another after-party, per E! News.

Unlike the sprawling Giambattista Valli gown Cardi wore to the “Garden of Time”-themed gala, the Revolve Atelier red corset dress she sported to the after-party was more form-fitting. Offset did not attend the red carpet event but donned a floral Miu Miu jacket and ripped jeans for the party.

Cardi confirmed back in December that she and Offset — who wed in 2017 and share daughter Kulture, 5, and son Wave, 2 — had called it quits, noting she’d “been single for a minute now.”

“I want to start 2024, like, fresh, open,” said Cardi, who in 2020 filed for divorce, though it’s never been finalized. “I’m curious for a new life. A new beginning. I’m excited.”

But Cardi and Offset’s relationship — which last summer included allegations of an extramarital affair — hasn’t seemed any more clear cut in recent months.

She revealed in early January that though they were not back together, as many had speculated, they’d slept together on New Year’s Eve. They then spent another holiday together, enjoying dinner on Valentine’s Day, once again giving grist to the rumor mill.

In early March, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper debuted her “Like What (Freestyle)” video, helmed by Offset. Just last week, she and the “Clout” rapper were seen sitting courtside at Madison Square Garden during a New York Knicks playoff game.
