Nicki Minaj wowed the world after announcing that she is dating one of the most iconic rappers in history: Marshall Bruce Mathers III best known as Eminem.
As a way to promote her new single titled Big Bank – which is a collaboration between YG, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, and Minaj – she took to Instagram to upload a short video singing her part of the song.
Even though she never said ‘Eminem’ during her verse on the track, she referred to him as ‘Slim Shady,’ which is one of the songs included in Eminem’s third album titled The Marshall Mathers LP.
In the song, Minaj said the following: 'Uh oh/Back again/Back to back Maybach, stack the M's/Told em' I met Slim Shady, bag the M/Once he go black, he'll be back again.'
As soon as she uploaded that video, her fans went to the comment section to share their thoughts. One of them was @acie.slaytor, who asked Minaj if she was dating Eminem.
Minaj replied to their comment only saying ‘yes,’ which ignited dating rumors between Minaj and Eminem. According to Capital Xtra, the most recent rumored relationship that Minaj was involved was with rapper Nas.
Even though neither of them confirmed they were dating, Capital admitted that they began seeing each other in 2017 but called things off earlier this year.
Ranker reported that Minaj and rapper Meek Mill started dating in 2015. Shortly after that, they got engaged but never married. After being together for two years, they ended their romance in January 2017.
Minaj’s longest relationship was with Safaree Samuels, though. They began dating in 2008 and were together until 2014. During that time, Minaj was rumored to be involved with Lil Wayne and Drake, but those allegations were never confirmed.
So far, Eminem has not said anything about Minaj’s comment. All that is left to do is wait and see if he confirms their relationship, as well.
