In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

If your husband uttered the statements mentioned by you, then such words constitute a permanently irrevocable divorce. You are no longer his wife. As soon as he uttered those words your Iddat began. Therefore, if the period of three menses is over your Iddat is terminated.[1]
