HUGE issues with cloudflare taking control of redirection in certain instances over the redirection plugin in wordpress

im having a huge issue with my site. with certain links, the Cloudflare takes over and precides over the redirection plugin i installed.

what i mean by this is that certain website urls, when i add a redirection to them via the redirection plugin, they don’t work and instead i am told by a tool that cloudlfare has redirected it and to one specific page EVERY single time without fail no matter what the original url is.

example: this page [jazminemedia.com/tag/son-seok-gu/page/3/] has a redirect set via the plugin, however that does not work and instead, it redirect into multiple things before landing on a page from 2018. https://www.jazminemedia.com/2018/06/10-hidden-messages-you-might-have-missed-in-blackpinks-ddu-du-ddu-du-mv/

it also goes through multiple redirects and one of them includes adding a specific date at the end of the url.

another example is jazminemedia.com/author/jazminek/page/128/] its supposed to redirect to another author but redirects to the same page https://www.jazminemedia.com/2018/06/10-hidden-messages-you-might-have-missed-in-blackpinks-ddu-du-ddu-du-mv/

please help me stop this

Have you asked the tool who told you this why they believe it is Cloudflare doing the redirection?

i can see how it redirects from a tool called redirect paths, and its telling me Cloudflare is doing the redirection, not the ‘redirection plugin’ thats how i know. also, each link that is a 404 is showing me a date next to it

examples https://www.jazminemedia.com/author/jazminek/page/381/
https://www.jazminemedia.com/author/jazminek/page/324/
if you check those two links, it automatically adds dates after the [/]

Both of those links return a 500 error code from the origin.
