“Anaconda” singer Nicki Minaj and rapper Meek Mill are reportedly getting married this week, the blog Media Take Out reported exclusively Monday. MTO cited an unnamed source who is a family member of one of Minaj’s best friends.
The two reportedly will tie the knot in New York City Wednesday after they perform at the Tidal benefit concert Tuesday. Even though details are “extremely tight,” Minaj’s family reportedly will stay at the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan and Mill’s family will be flown in to meet them there. MTO added: “[By the way] this is not rumor y'all. … It’s facts!!!”
Neither Minaj, 32, nor Mill, 28, responded to the marriage rumors. The couple hasn’t even confirmed their engagement. Mill hasn't tweeted for weeks and Minaj shared photos from Instagram with mostly emoji as captions.
The two reportedly got engaged in April after Minaj posted a photo of a diamond ring to Instagram. "Both Meek and Nicki have been spending amazing quality time together lately and have gotten extremely close these past few months," an insider told E! News at the time. "It may seem like it all is happening very quickly, but Nicki and Meek are in this 100 [percent]. They truly love each other."
But things haven’t always been easy. Their relationship came under fire after Canadian rapper Drake slammed Mill in a diss track. Minaj remained out of the drama for the most part, but she recently spoke about the beef between her beau and her friend.
"They're men, grown-a-- men," Minaj told New York Times Magazine’s Culture issue Oct. 8. "It's between them. ... I hate it. It doesn't make me feel good. You don't ever want to choose sides between people you love. It's ridiculous. I just want it to be over."
