American hip-hop star‚ Nicki Minaj has rubbished rumours that she is single‚ insisting that the flurry of reports quoting her as saying she was‚ are misleading.
Nicki had fans in a huff this week when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about her relationship with rapper Meek Mill‚ and seemed to suggest that she was single.
The Super Bass singer has always been shy to talk about her private life‚ and in her chat with TV host Ellen this week‚ she would not even acknowledge that she had a boyfriend‚ instead referring to Meek as “my boy” and “a boy that likes me.
It got even more confusing for fans when Nicki said the couple were still trying to figure each other out and she preferred to tell people she is single.
“We’re still figuring each other out. In fact‚ I don’t even want to say I’m in a relationship anymore‚ because I think when people hear that‚ they go to a mean place. I used to say‚ “I’m not in a relationship‚” even though I was in a 12-year relationship. Now I feel like just going back to that and saying‚ “You know what? I’m single.”
Her comments went viral and led to a flurry of messages from fans asking if the couple had broken up.
The calls seemed to get so loud that Nicki took to Instagram on Thursday night to clarify her relationship status‚ reassuring fans that her and Meek are still an item.
