Nicki Minaj Addresses Relationship with Meek Mill

Since her split from Safaree Samuels, the rumor mill has been buzzing about Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill. So are the rappers dating? Nicki spoke out for the first time about their rumored relationship.

During her appearance on Power 106’s “Big Boy’s Neighborhood” on Monday, the “Bed of Lies” rapper acted surprised when Big Boy asked her about the gossip. “You heard that? Is that the new news out?” she asked.

But she shut down reports of a romance. “We’re friends. He’s dope. Shout out to him,” said Nicki.

Meek was in prison for five months, but Nicki did not write him. “The kid is very busy. I wished him well,” she said. “I hated that he was in jail because I thought he was in jail for something ridiculous, but no, I didn’t write him.”

Meek is featured on two tracks off The Pinkprint. He originally thought he would be back in time to appear on “Favorite,” but when he wasn’t, his camp sent Nicki five songs to choose from and she narrowed it down to “Buy a Heart” and “Big Daddy.”

Hear Nicki set the record straight.
