Nicki Minaj is off the market.
The rapper, who is featured on the just-released single “Big Bank,” confirmed she is dating Emienum on Instagram. But some think it may just be a prank.
The apparent confirmation about the “Roman’s Revenge” collaborators was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment that came in the comments of a video. In the clip, Minaj promotes the YG single on which her verse goes, “Told ’em I met Slim Shady… Once he go Black, he’ll be back again.”
“You dating Eminem???” one of Minaj’s followers asked the rapper to which she replied, “yes.”
Eminem himself chimed in, too, saying, “Girl you know it’s true.”
And the playful banter didn’t end there. Minaj tagged Em and said, “Babe, I thought we were gonna keep it on the low til the wedding. Yikes. I’ll talk to you when I get home.”
Several fans were shocked about the admission from Minaj, who was last linked to fellow New York rapper Nas before they split earlier this year. And in December, Eminem admitted to Vulture that “dating’s just not where I’m at lately.”
“OMGGGG So THATS the white guy you bagged????? S— y’all GOTTA do another song together! @nickiminaj @eminem.”
“@eminem OMG @nickiminaj IMMA HAVE MY EYES ON YOU TWO 😍😍.”
“Pretty cool that you’re dating Eminem, hope everything goes well for the both of you.”
But others just saw it as a joke.
“@nickiminaj really making my night with these comments, she’s not just the best but she got jokes too 😭❤.”
“@nickiminaj you are irritating 😂😂😂.”
“@nickiminaj you’re just kidding.”
But Sources close to Minaj told TMZ she was only joking and they are not in a romantic relationship.
