Saweetie Confirms Quavo Split and Reveals He Tried to Buy Her Forgiveness With Expensive Gifts
Another one of Hollywood’s favorite couples has called it quits. Saweetie and Quavo have officially split. Rumors began circulating earlier in the week after the “My Type” rapper unfollowed the Migos member on Instagram. However, Saweetie recently took to her Twitter to confirm the news and to put a stop to the rumors that were circulating about her and her ex-boyfriend.
When did Saweetie and Quavo start dating?
Though the pair both work in the entertainment industry, their love story actually started on the Internet. In a 2020 interview with GQ, Quavo admitted that he slid into Saweetie’s DMs back in 2018 after being enamored with her pictures on Instagram. “I seen her on my Explore page. I was like, ‘Da*n! Who is this?'” Quavo confessed. “So I did my research and I DM her. I was like, ‘How she going to call herself icy and she don’t talk to me?’ So I slid in her DM. I told her, ‘You an icy girl, you need a glacier boy.'”
The ‘Icy Girl’ rapper revealed to GQ that she played hard to get with the Migos member
Saweetie admitted that she “played hard to get” for a while and the pair stayed in contact for two months before they agreed to meet up. It wasn’t too long before the public caught wind of their budding romance. But not everyone felt that their relationship was genuine at first. Many fans of Quavo and the “Icy Girl” rapper believed that they were faking a relationship for PR purposes and began to place bets on when they would split up.
As time continued to pass, it became clear that Saweetie and Quavo’s relationship was far from a hoax. Once the public realized that the couple was truly together, many people began to root for them. The fascination with the rappers’ relationship continued to increase and Saweetie even confessed that she felt that people were rooting for her and the Migos member because they were happy to be proven wrong.
Saweetie confirms split with Quavo on Twitter
Unfortunately, for fans who shipped the rappers from the start, the pair have broken up after three years together. On March 19, 2021, Saweetie took to her Twitter page to announce the split. She also alluded to the fact that Quavo potentially cheated on her during the course of their relationship and tried to compensate for his indiscretion with gifts.
“I’m single,” Saweetie penned on Twitter in response to the breakup rumors. “I’ve endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character. Presents don’t band-aid scars and the love isn’t real when the intimacy is given to other women. 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.”
We know fans of the former couple are probably saddened to hear about Quavo and Saweetie’s split. However, Saweetie seems to be enjoying life as a single lady, so the breakup was probably for the best.
