Nicki Minaj and Philadelphia-born rapper Meek Mill were caught on camera kissing this weekend, and the "Anaconda" singer even posted it to her Instagram account. Does this mean the two are a couple? The two have been rumored to be dating for a while now, but this is the first official indication on behalf of Nicki Minaj that those rumors might be true.
During a recent conversation with Ryan Seacrest, however, Nicki Minaj denied the rumors.
“Let me clear this up: I am SINGLE," she said.
“People are just assuming these things and I don’t know why. This is my friend. I’m just hanging out. We don’t look at each other like that at all!” Minaj added.
Nicki Minaj reportedly dated Safaree Samuels for twelve years. He is said to be quite upset over the notion of her dating Meek Mill. Just over a month ago, TMZ described him as 'suicidal' over the split.
“[Safaree has been] confiding in friends that he’s an emotional wreck over his breakup with Nicki after a 12-year relationship,” the publication reported. “He’s become a shut-in, spends days and nights smoking weed, and has talked openly about suicide.”
Hollywood Life reports that Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill spent her birthday together back on December 8th. And while that certainly doesn't mean they're more than just friends, there definitely were lots of friends Nicki could have chosen to spend her birthday with and she chose him.
Do you think Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill are a couple? It will be interesting to see if more photos go public now that the 'kissing' shot is front and center on Nicki Minaj's Instagram account.
