Nicki Minaj Says She's "Single"

Ummm... Wait, what?

Published April 7, 2016

Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill have been dating for over a year now and it’s always been kind of uncertain how close the two really are.

We may now have a little more insight into that as the “Pinkprint” rapper recently made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and addressed her relationship with the Philadelphia emcee. Minaj quickly stomped out rumors that the two rings she’s received from Meek (as seen on Instagram) are of the engagement variety.

“First of all, that’s not an engagement ring,” Nicki said when asked about the ring. “I have two rings from this boy that likes me. That’s not my engagement ring though. He said, that’s my second ring, and he said if I get a third ring, then that’s my engagement ring.” It seemed innocent enough, but shortly after was when she dropped a mini bombshell about her affinity for Meek Mill.

“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,” she added. “Now, just going back to saying, you know what, I’m single.”

While it’s admirable that Nicki wants to take time before possibly marrying Meek, over a year seems a little long to be still “figuring each other out.”

Also during the interview Nicki Minaj provided examples as to how ridiculous rumors about her relationship with Meek Mill have gotten and cited this year’s Valentine's Day as an example. She explained that while she received numerous gifts and spent that whole day with her beau – in the bedroom no less – rumors she heard placed the couple in a much darker spot just because she didn’t post the gifts to social media.
