Nicki Minaj got in trouble recently after she released the video for “Only”, her collaboration with Drake, Chris Brown, and Lil Wayne. The rapper was accused of using Nazi imagery in her video, and despite the fact that Minaj has apologized on her Twitter, she’s still being hounded by questions about the controversy. TMZ caught up with Minaj when she landed at LAX after her hosting stint at the MTV Europe Music Awards. The “Anaconda” rapper was accompanied by security personnel and another man, which she called her “new Jewish boyfriend”. “No this is my new Jewish boyfriend. Why the f–k would I do that? We did this together,” Minaj said after she kept being asked about the music video.
The man in question is Grizz Lee, whose real name is Alex Loucas. Loucas is a videographer, and he’s the one who supervised the making of the Only video. In a series of tweets apologizing for the content of the music video, Minaj named Loucas as the man behind the concept. “Both the producer and person in charge of overseeing the lyric video (one of my best friends & videographer: A Loucas), happen to be Jewish,” Minaj said in her tweet. Minaj added, “The artist who made the lyric video for “Only” was influenced by a cartoon on Cartoon Network called Metalocalypse and Sin City.”

Prior to dating Loucas, Minaj went out with Trinidadian rapper Safaree Samuels. Earlier this year, the two reportedly had a huge fight. According to reports, Minaj chased Samuels with a baseball bat before proceeding to smash his 2012 Mercedes Benz. She also threw Samuels’ clothes in the trash. It is worth noting that Samuels was seen last month with his tattoos of Nicki all covered up.
After her breakup with Samuels, there were rumors that Minaj was flirting with Drake but it seems those rumors were unfounded and Alex Loucas is the lucky man this time around.
