RIP to rap’s most wholesome couple. Hours after fans noticed Saweetie and Quavo had unfollowed each other on Instagram, the “My Type” rapper tweeted that she’s single. “I’ve endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character,” Saweetie wrote. “Presents don’t band aid scars and the love isn’t real when the intimacy is given to other women.” Quavo, one-third of Migos, has yet to address the apparent split. In another tweet, Saweetie added, “I emotionally checked out a long time ago and have walked away with a deep sense of peace and freedom. Excited for this new chapter of elevation 🙏🏽.”
Saweetie began dating Quavo in 2018, when he slid into her DMs with a snowflake emoji, as she revealed last summer in a GQ feature on their relationship. “I feel like I’m growing and I’m maturing because of him — not the music, not Saweetie, but Diamonté … I don’t know how I would be as a person if I would have never met him,” Saweetie told the magazine at the time, and all our hearts melted. Now they’re back to being icy.
Update, 6:20 p.m.: Quavo confirmed the breakup on his own Twitter, addressing Saweetie’s tweets. “I know you want to make this into a show so I’ll play my part just this one time,” he wrote, adding, “I feel the need to address this so there are no false narratives.” In another tweet, Quavo continued, “I had love for you and disappointed you did all that. You are not the woman I thought you were. I wish you nothing but the best 🙏🏾.” It’s unclear what his tweets are referring to — only that rap’s formerly most wholesome couple is ending on less-than-wholesome terms.
Update: Oof, because it wouldn’t be a full public breakup unless someone went scorched earth, Saweetie concluded her statements with an icy retweet. That seems to be the last word on the subject.
For now, anyway.
On Twitter, anyway.
Updated March 21 at 3:27 p.m.: The Daily Mail reported that “in the early hours of Saturday morning,” Quavo sent a repo man to take away Saweetie’s Bentley that he had leased for her as a Christmas gift in December. No takebacksies, Quavo!
