Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill have split up and now Minaj is focusing on making new music for 2017.
This after the Side To Side rapper announced her current relationship status on Twitter.
“To confirm, yes I am single. Focusing on my work & looking forward to sharing it with you guys really soon,” Nicki tweeted on Jan. 5. “Have a blessed New Year. Love u.”
Break-up rumors involving Minaj and Mill started when 34-year-old rapper appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show and said she was “single” although she and Meek were still dating.
“I don’t even want to say that I’m in a relationship anymore, because I think when people hear that, they go to like the mean place,” Minaj told Ellen. She also denied engagement rumors, after the talk show host prodded her about her alleged engagement ring.
“First of all, that’s not an engagement ring. Right? I have two rings from this boy that likes me,” she said. Adding, “That boy has money. Whatever boy that is.”
In April, Minaj said Meek promised her a third ring, which would be her engagement ring.
“He said that my third ring would be my engagement ring. But sometimes he calls me his fiancée, and I’m always trying to stop him, like, ‘Nope! I ain’t got that third ring yet!’ We’re just taking it one step at a time,” she told NYLON.
Before their break up, Minaj was already rumored to be dating Fetty Wap. According to gossip website, Hollywood Life, Minaj allegedly loved the said rumors because it’s affecting Mill.
“Nicki’s loving the rumors that she’s dating all these famous rappers because it’s getting under Meek’s skin, which she loves,” a source told the gossip site. “She’s hoping it will light the fire under his a** so he realizes that she’s a queen and that he should do something about it!”
Meek Mill hasn’t commented on his break-up with Nicki Minaj yet.
