Nicki Minaj has been linked to rappers including her Young Money label mates Drake and Lil Wayne, but on Thursday reports claimed that she and actor Zac Efron had a steamy fling over the summer. Minaj took to Twitter on Friday morning to address the rumor.
"Who exactly is Zac Efron tho? I'm sorry, I'm so confused," she wrote. A fan then proceeded to send her a shirtless photo of the "High School Musical" star. "Oooohhhh ok ... Well I guess the rumor isn't so bad after all. lmfao."
Efron, who has been in headlines recently for reported drug use and stints in rehab, has dated Vanessa Hudgens, his “High School Musical” co-star, for about three years.
Star magazine reports that Efron, 25, and Minaj, 30, had a sexual encounter in July. It was during this time that Efron was reportedly in rehab for an addiction to cocaine. His rep said that he's clean now and doesn't even drink.
“Zac and Nicki shared a steamy night together. Nicki took Zac to her house in West Hollywood. She said he was the best lover she’s ever had,” an unidentified source told the tabloid about their alleged encounter.

Over the course of her career, the curvy rapper has been linked to Drake and Lil Wayne, who both have denied being intimate with her. “Me and Nicki are like family. I love Nicki with all my heart. We haven’t really shared like an intimate moment like that,” Drake said during an appearance last month on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."
Minaj also dispelled rumors that she's involved with Lil Wayne. In April, she told MTV News that when they filmed the steamy “High School” music video, "Not only is he my boss, but he's also like my brother. It's very weird because I'm just used to Wayne making fun of me. … He refused to touch me, he's so respectful, he refused to touch me … like he's a Southern gentleman, which people don't realize."
