Is a picture really worth a thousand words? “Anaconda” singer Nicki Minaj seemed to respond to rumors that she dumped her boyfriend, rapper Meek Mill, after gossip swirled over the weekend. And Minaj perplexed followers when she took to Instagram Monday and posted a picture of her hugging the “I’m a Boss” star.
Minaj, 32, shared the photo after she finished her Pinkprint Tour concert in Atlanta. “Last night was one of the most epic shows I've ever been apart of. Atlanta has a different kind of energy,” she wrote to her 30.4 million IG followers. “Thank you for the love and support, I really didn't wanna get off that stage.”
The confusing post garnered nearly 350,000 likes and inspired more than 4,200 comments. Many people asked whether or not they were still dating. One reason that Minaj and Mill would be photographed together, even if they broke up, is because they are working on the same tour.
Minaj didn’t dwell on relationship rumors for long -- and also neglected to address them head-on. Instead, she shared videos of herself twerking (a dance move where a person shakes their backside up and down) at her Atlanta concert. She also promoted her new perfume, The Pinkprint Fragrance, which will be available for purchase on the HSN's website Tuesday.
If they really did split, one of the theories is because of the feud Mill, 28, has with Canadian rapper Drake. The two have fought over Minaj in the past. Most recently, in a Twitter post Mill accused Drake of using a ghostwriter. To that, Drake released the diss track “Back to Back” and essentially said that Mill was piggybacking off of Minaj’s fame.
The “Super Bass” star has not responded to the Drake vs. Mill feud.
