Iggy had hinted at the breakup in cryptic Instagram Story posts just hours earlier. 

‘You lost a real 1!!!!’ she wrote, adding: ‘People take loyalty for granted & That’s why I’d rather be alone [vomiting emojis].’

Iggy and Carti, 24, (real name Jordan Terrell Carter) began dating in 2018 and had what many would describe as an on-and-off relationship.
