Nicki Minaj Confirms Split With Meek Mill, Love Remains Dead in 2017
"All Things Go," indeed: Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill have broken up after two years of dating, the "Black Barbie" rapper confirmed today (January 5).
"To confirm, yes I am single. Focusing on my work & looking forward to sharing it with you guys really soon. Have a blessed New Year. Love u," Minaj tweeted on Thursday morning.
Meek Mill posted, and then deleted, an Instagram photo of on Thursday that many of his followers interpreted as a dig at his ex.
"If you walk out don't wear these they wack..." Meek captioned a photo of white high-top wedge sneakers with a lot going on (zipper, laces, buckles).
Rumors of a relationship between the two first arose in December of 2014, though the two had been friends for several years prior. They began appearing in public together — and on each other's social feeds — in early 2015, and collaborated several times: Meek appeared on Pinkprint Deluxe tracks "Buy a Heart" and "Big Daddy" (and he appeared in Nicki's "The Night Is Still Young" video), while Nicki put in guest features on Meek's albums DC4 and Dreams Worth More Than Money.
Minaj also managed to stay above the fray during Meek Mill's high profile feud with her friend and Cash Money Records label mate Drake back in 2015, despite the fact that Drake evoked her name on diss track "Back to Back."
