Saweetie accused Quavo of cheating in her March 2021 breakup announcement
In mid-March 2021, Saweetie announced via Twitter that she was 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. Her next statement appeared to accuse Quavo of cheating and attempting to apologize using gifts.
“Presents don’t band aid scars and the love isn’t real when the intimacy is given to other women,” she added. In a rare statement about his personal life, which Quavo felt he needed to make ‘so there are no false narratives’, the Migos rapper stated that he was disappointed in Saweetie. “You are not the woman I thought you were,” he tweeted. “I wish you nothing but the best.”
The drama didn’t end there as, a couple of weeks later, a video showing Saweetie and Quavo fighting on an elevator surfaced. The one-and-a-half-minute clip shows Quavo and Saweetie fighting over an orange case. Quavo can be seen pulling Saweetie into an elevator, where they resume their fight.
Saweetie falls to the floor as the elevator moves to another floor. As the doors open, Quavo picks up his backpack and the orange case. Saweetie then pulls herself up and limps out of the elevator. In their separate statements, the pair stated that the events in the video happened a year ago and they had moved past it. In his statement to People, Quavo denied physically abusing Saweetie.
“This unfortunate incident happened a year ago, while we have reconciled since then and moved past this particular disagreement, there were simply too many other hurdles to overcome in our relationship and we both since moved on,” Saweetie said in a statement sent to NBC News.
Quavo and Saweetie started dating after making a music video together
There were rumors of a relationship between Saweetie and Quavo before she appeared in Quavo’s Workin Me video in August 2018. The chemistry between the couple was clear to see in the video, and after the video, they were practically inseparable. Saweetie talked about Quavo during the 2019 Billboard music awards:
“He’s one of my best teachers. He’s so seasoned. He has so many accomplishments so he just teaches me in the studio, with my writing, with everything that comes with the game, so I really appreciate him.”
Quavo was accused of cheating on Saweetie in December 2019
Quavo’s relationship with Saweetie came under threat when a woman named Lashae Clair claimed Quavo hit on her. She posted screenshots of an alleged Facetime call with Quavo and wrote:
“This probably going to get deleted. But I’ve been talking to Quavo for the last couple of months. He doesn’t really love that girl if he did he wouldn’t be talking to me. There’s just soo much to unfold that I’ve learned from him & Offset.”
She stated that Quavo texted her via Instagram, and they’d planned to spend time together when he was in New York. Lashae also threatened to post his contacts and nudes. However, her story looked like a sham from the beginning. She didn’t have enough credible evidence to support her claim. Quavo and Saweetie responded to the Lashae via a photo of the couple posted on Quavo’s Instagram page. Quavo attached the caption, “G N F. Give No Fuks.”
Quavo displayed her love for Saweetie on Valentine’s Day when he arranged to have her woken up to a violinist playing the beat to her song My Type. He posted the video of the romantic moment on his Instagram stories.
