Published May 30, 2017

Nicki Minaj found herself on Wendy Williams's hot-topic radar this morning when the talk show maven dug into the femcee for reportedly faking the funk with her "relationship" with Nas.

While talking about the reported rapper romance, Wendy brought up some speculation she came across involving the "No Frauds" MC, and gave a suggestion to her that involved her talk show peer Ellen Degeneres.

During the "Hot Topics" segment of her talk show, Wendy started out by discussing Nicki's reported romantic relationship with Nas, mentioning that she doesn't think the hip-hop icon should be tied down with someone like the Young Money star.

"Nas does not need to have a girlfriend who still sweats the red carpet," she said. "I like Nas being low key... He's a cool type dude who can smash a Nicki Minaj any day he wants but doesn't have to claim her for a girlfriend."

Things got extra shady after Wendy tried to stress that her comments were no hard feelings against Nicki — but they kind of were.

"This is nothing against Nicki, but if you'd like to plead your case, you can take it on Ellen and I'm sure Ellen will understand."

After her audience roared in applause with some covering their mouths in shock, the talk show host stared into the camera, lips pursed and explained the motives behind her shade.

Sourcing theJasmineBRAND.com, she told her co-hosts that Nicki was fuming at the fact that Remy Ma, Fat Joe, Rick Ross and her ex, Safaree, all appeared on her show to talk about her. Wendy then claimed that the femcee made plans to team up with Nas to make a record, targeting her haters, but deliberately made it look romantic when it was all about the music.

Take a look at Wendy's Nicki-Ellen reference, below, where the rapper talked about getting close with the "Illmatic" MC:
