Even though Nicki Minaj and Nas have managed to keep it inconspicuous on social media, it looks like they might be dating! A source said to E! News that the pair has been hanging out a lot since May of this year.
The insider said, “Nicki isn’t the type of girl to fool around with a lot of guys. They’re still becoming acquainted with one another.”
On Wednesday, the self-proclaimed Barbie was at Nas’ private birthday – which was presented by the whiskey company, Hennessy, at the Pool Lounge – in New York City.
While the alleged couple was there, Minaj and Nas looked very comfortable with one another, which sparked rumors of a possible romance!
Just a few days after, on Thursday, Nas posted a photo of him and Nicki together, with the caption, “Virgo Season with my real one from Queens!”
Nicki posted one herself which you can see above; the star captioned the photo with, “the legend himself…#EscobarSeason.”
Despite the pair showing a lot of public displays of affection at the party, another source claimed they’re just friends.
The insider said, “Nicki and Nas are just close friends, and it’s entirely platonic. They’re not officially dating. They’ve been friends for years.”
The source close to the couple added, “they’ve watched each other’s respective careers blow up over the past decade, so their friendship has always been close. Nicki is currently single and is seeing guys but isn’t taking anything too seriously. But, people can’t help but joke and say they look like they would be a great couple.”
Back in May, Nicki Minaj said to Ellen DeGeneres, “I’m just chilling right now. I’m celibate. I wanted to go a year without dating any man. I hate men,” however, she thought about making an exception for Nas “because he’s so dope.”
