Mostly everyone figured Nicki Minaj’s relationship with Meek Mill was just a classic case of rebound syndrome, considering she started dating the Philly rapper after (or while, rather) ending her long-term relationship with Safaree Samuels. But Nicki says what the two had together was actually a very “toxic” union.
The Queen rapper recently sat down with Ellen — the only person she gives the real tea to — and in the interview that airs today, Nicki runs through her public relationship history (and the rumors), starting with that fact that she’s “never been in a relationship with Drake.” I’d say there’s no surprise there, but when it comes to Nicki’s comments on dating Nas and Meek, I’d say her remarks are just a tad bit shocking. As for Meek, who Nicki dated for about two years from 2015-2017, she said:
“I was in a relationship with Meek for a while, which ended, and it was a very toxic something. But we had some good times and we ended that.”
Perhaps the “toxic something” was that Nicki cheated on Safaree with Meek — a detail we learned when her ex publicly put her on blast. There’s also the fact that Meek was in the midst of his very deep legal troubles while they were dating. And considering all the drama around that, I doubt he had much time to pour into their relationship. Nevertheless, we all were a bit intrigued when Nicki seemed to bounce back from that relationship setback and land in the arms of Nas — or did she? When pressed about her relationship with the now semi-disgraced Queens rapper, Nicki said:
“I didn’t say I was with Nas. I said I chilled. I hung out with him. And he and I are still good friends.”
What Nicki actually said when she was on Ellen in May 2017 was that she and Nas had “sleepovers” but they didn’t do the “nasty” because she’s celibate. And then they spent his birthday together that September and, suddenly, were seemingly no more. Either way, Safaree, Meek, and Nas, no matter what roles they played in Nicki’s life at one point, are all things of the past and now she has a new boy toy — or two.
“There is a new boy, but he and I have kind of fell back a little bit,” Nicki confessed, before sharing she has a “newer” fellow who’s “been around for a couple weeks now.” Wonder who that could be…
