Nicki Minaj Takes To Instagram To Say She’s Dating Eminem—But Is She?

The internet flew into overdrive on Friday, May 25, when Nicki Minaj seemed to confirm on her Instagram that she was dating Slim Shady himself. After posting a video of herself lip-synching to her verse in the new YG track, a fan asked if she was dating Eminem. Her response? A simple “yes.”

Twitter couldn’t contain itself.

Eminem even seemed to confirm the relationship…in a suspiciously joking way.

When Minaj posted the comments, many suspected it was a joke. After all, her new song features the line:

Told ’em I met Slim Shady, bag the Em.Once he go black, he’ll be back again.

Sources close to Minaj later told TMZ the Instagram comments were, in fact, all a joke. Sadly, Eminem and Nicki are NOT in a relationship.

Though it seems this relationship is too good to be true, it wouldn’t be the first time Minaj has stepped out with fellow members of the music industry. In the past, she’s dated Meek Mills and Safaree. Following her recent split with Nas, Minaj has been living the single life…though all that might change if she decides Mr. Mathers deserves a chance.
