Nicki Minaj Addresses Meek Mill Breakup Rumors (Again)

Nicki Minaj Meek Mill

Nicki Minaj has had to come out and deny that she and Meek Mill have broken up (again), thanks to her recent visit visit to Ellen.

It seems as if breakup rumors make their way around to the couple every few months. This time, the fire was fueled by Nicki’s recent visit to Ellen, when she referred to Meek as “A boy that likes me.”

“We’re still figuring each other out,” she told the host. “In fact, I don’t want to say that I’m in a relationship anymore because I think that when people hear that, they go to, like, the mean place.”

She went on to explain that since what’s really going on in her personal life is often times misconstrued and met with abarrage of negativity, it would be simpler to go back to denying having a relationship at all like she did in her past. “I used to say I wasn’t in a relationship even though I was in a 12-year relationship…and now I feel like just going back to that and saying that I’m single.

“For instance, Valentine’s Day passed Valentine’s Day passed and I didn’t put up my Valentine’s Day gift on Instagram. People said, ‘They’re not together.’ We were getting anonymous messages saying, ‘She wasn’t with him. She was crying all day.’ They put up all these things. Meanwhile, we were really in bed all day on Valentine’s Day,” she laughed. “Like, seriously! We were in bed all day and then I got up and opened these three amazing gifts, and then I went back to bed. Then I read this story that we weren’t together on Valentine’s Day and it just made me realize that no matter how great your life is, you can’t even impress people. You just have to do you and make yourself happy and forget about trying to get everyone’s approval. It’s better just to keep those things sacred. So now I don’t really care to say ‘I’m in a relationship’ or ‘I’m engaged’ or whatever. I just- there’s a boy that likes me. That’s all.”

Now Nicki has taken to Instagram to clear the air in her own special way. “#They don’t want me to write this caption. Cc @djkhaled ~ It would be very remiss of you to not watch what I said about Valentines Day prior to writing or believing a headline about my comment. I’m not single. Thank you for coming out. Have a blessed day and get some D. 😜”
