Did Nicki Minaj Break Up With Meek Mill?
You may have to rethink your #relationshipgoals: In a series of Instagram posts on Sunday night (May 31), Nicki Minaj dropped cryptic hints that suggested things might be over with rapper Meek Mill.
Considering their busy schedules, the two artists have been practically inseparable for several months. The two artists fanned the flames of the public's "Omeeka" obsession with photos such as this one from Nicki four weeks ago, captioned "we out." Nicki also cherry-picked the Philadelphia rapper for second-to-top billing on the North American leg of The Pinkprint Tour, which also features Rae Sremmurd, Tinashe and Dej Loaf.
Back in April, another slightly-mysterious Instagram post of a heart-shaped diamond ring sparked rumors of an engagement, but now we're left wondering whether it was just a super-ostentatious gift, unattached to any lifelong promises. Still, it's been barely two weeks since Nicki clambered onto Meek's bike in her "The Night is Still Young" video, reaffirming their union.
The "Anaconda" rapper reportedly dated her former assistant and hype man Safaree Samuels for nearly eleven years without ever publicly confirming their relationship, so the fact that Omeeka seemed on track to become the next Bey and Jay led many to believe it was the real deal (while other fans labeled Meek as rebound material). Yet last night's captions, attached to photos from Nicki's July Cosmopolitan cover, suggest unfortunate recent developments.
It's not entirely strange to see Nicki sans heart ring in the pictures — given its size, it would be tough to even unscrew a bottle of water with that thing on, and it's a bit of a scene-stealer — but does the "bullet" Nicki has dodged refer to Meek, and/or their possible engagement?
Hopefully this tweet from Nicki suggests that the answer is no. We're rooting for you two.
