This morning, Nicki Minaj revealed something very unexpected. Is she really dating Eminem?
It is safe to say that fans were very surprised to hear from the female emcee that she is in a relationship with yet another huge name in hip-hop.
The entire thing started when Nicki shared a clip on her Instagram account meant to promote her brand new single featuring YG, Big Sean, and 2 Chainz, titled Big Bank.
One fan proceeded to just ask in the comments: ‘You dating Eminem???’
That is when, Minaj, without disclosing too many details, simply replied: ‘Yes.’
But what got the follower to ask about her relationship with Eminem?
Nicki mentioned the name of the famous rapper in her lyrics, rapping: ‘Uh oh / Back again / Back to back Maybach, stack the M’s. Told ’em I met Slim Shady, bag the M / Once he go black, he’ll be back again.’
At this point, nothing’s been confirmed and it sounds like Minaj said that just for fun but who knows?
She and her reps are yet to comment on her dating claim.
As fans may be aware, Nicki Minaj and Eminem have worked together before, on the woman’s track titled Roman’s Revenge back in 2010.
Meanwhile, back in December, Nicki’s secret relationship with Nas came to an end, months after the rapper told Ellen DeGeneres that after her failed romances with Safaree Samuels and Meek Mill she was done with dating.
She did admit at the time that for Nas, she might ‘make an exception.’
‘I’m just chillin’ right now. I am celibate. I wanted to go one year without dating any man. I hate men,’ she told the host at the time.
Eminem hasn’t really had a longterm relationship either ever since his 2006 divorce from Kimberly Scott.
‘It’s tough. Since my divorce, I have had a few dates, and nothing has panned out in a way that I wanted to make it public. Dating is just not where I am at lately. Am I lonely? No, I’m good. Thanks for asking, though,’ he insisted in an interview with Vulture back in December.
