Well, it looks like everyone can stop speculating on the relationship status between Nicki Minaj and Nas. The couple has been dating since May.
Earlier this week, the rumor mill went wild after video surfaced of Nas’ 44th birthday party at The Pool Room in New York City, which clearly showed the Queens legend kissing (and licking) the self-proclaimed Black Barbie.
Last Friday, Nas appeared to make it somewhat official when he posted a photo of himself and Minaj to his Instagram account with the caption, “Virgo Season With my Real One From Queens! @nickiminaj #hennessylife.”
While Minaj was less conspicuous in her caption, she also posted a photo to her Instagram account on Friday from Nas’ birthday celebration that showed the couple in an embrace with giant smiles plastered across their faces.
The day before, Thursday (September 13), she posted yet another photo of them posing next to Swizz Beatz and his wife Alicia Keys. Once again, they’re arm in arm and look very much like a couple.
Minaj broke up with longtime boyfriend Meek Mill in January and started popping up with Nas in May. The rumors started to fly then after Minaj and Nas both posted an Instagram photo of what looked like an intimate dinner together.
An insider close to the situation reportedly told E! News, “Nicki is not the type to date around. They are still getting to know each other.”
