Nicki Minaj surprised fans yesterday by revealing she’s dating another hip-hop heavyweight: Eminem. It all started when Minaj posted a video on her Instagram to promote “Big Bank,” her new single with 2 Chainz, Big Sean and YG. One of her followers asked, “You dating Eminem???” Without going into detail, Minaj replied, “Yes.”
Curiously, the 35-year-old rapper name-drops the 45-year-old rapper in her new song. “Uh oh / Back again / Back to back Maybach, stack the M’s,” Minaj raps. “Told ’em I met Slim Shady, bag the M / Once he go black, he’ll be back again.”
Hours later, Eminem commented, saying, “Girl you know it’s true…” Minaj replied to him, writing, “Babe I thought we were gonna keep it on the low til the wedding. Yikes. I’ll talk to you when I get home.” Some fans aren’t convinced and have accused the rappers of trolling the fan. Meanwhile a source tells E! News that this is all simply a joke.
