Is Nicki Minaj and Eminem an item? That seems to be the question on everybody’s mind.
Minaj seemingly confirmed that she and Eminem was dating in a reply to a fan on Instagram on Friday (25th May). However, in a statement to TMZ, she has denied the news.
It all began with a curious comment from a fan, who asked, “You dating Eminem???” Minaj replied with a short and concise”yes”. This immediately sent fans into frenzy. Hours later, the 45-year-old rapper replied to the same comment with, “Girl you know it’s true…”
This garnered a reply from Minaj, who said, “Babe I thought we were gonna keep it on the low til the wedding. Yikes. I’ll talk to you when I get home.”
However, some fans remained unconvinced and skeptical, believing that this is all a joke. A source has also told E! News that the conversation was done in jest.
Eminem also touched on the issue in a recent performance. On Sunday (27th May) night, the rapper, who was performing in Boston Calling, gave a shoutout to Minaj.
He joked, “Baby I’ll be home tonight.” The crowd screamed in response, to which Eminem continued, “Boston, how many of you want me to date Nicki Minaj?”
Of course, this garnered more screams.
Then came Eminem’s reply again, saying, “Well, god damnit, me too. Nicki, if you get this message, just text me later, we’ll talk about it.”
Seems like the couple ain’t dating for now, but who knows what’ll happen in the future, right?

Minaj’s last-known relationship was with Nas, but it ended in December. The “Anacondo” singer has also stated that she wants to go a year without dating men, saying, “I’m just chillin’ right now. I’m celibate. I wanted to go a year without dating any man. I hate men.”
Meanwhile, Eminem’s last serious relationship was in 2006, when he divorced Kimberly Scott for a 2nd time. “It’s tough. Since my divorce I’ve had a few dates and nothing’s panned out in a way that I wanted to make it public. Dating’s just not where I’m at lately,” he said in December.
