Nicki Minaj took to Instagram today (April 7) to confirm that she is still in a relationship with Meek Mill.
“#They don’t want me to write this caption. Cc @djkhaled,” Minaj writes for the caption of a picture of her with the Philadelphia rapper. “~ It would be very remiss of you to not watch what I said about Valentines Day prior to writing or believing a headline about my comment. I’m not single. Thank you for coming out. Have a blessed day and get some D.”
Her comments on “The Ellen Show” about Meek Mill being “a boy that likes me” caused some to speculate that the Pinkprint rapper is now single. Along with the Instagram post of her and Meek Mill, she shared screenshots of fans who decried the media for taking her statements out of context.

Nicki Minaj discusses relationship with Meek Mill, during appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
When questioned about the possibility of an engagement ring, while on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Queens rapper Nicki Minaj expressed her frustration with the labels attached to her relationship with fellow artist, Meek Mill.
In fact, Nicki revealed that the only label she prefers at the moment is “There’s a boy that likes me.”
“First of all, that’s not an engagement ring,” Nicki Minaj said. “I have two rings from this boy that likes me…He said that that’s my second ring. And that if I get a third ring that that would be the engagement ring…We’re still figuring each other out. And in fact, I don’t even wanna say I’m in a relationship anymore cause I think that when people hear that they go to like the mean place.”
Later in the interview, Nicki recalled hearing rumors about a possible breakup with Meek when she didn’t post any photos of her Valentine’s Day gifts from the rapper on Instagram.
“For instance, Valentine’s Day passed and I didn’t put up my Valentine’s Day gift on Instagram,” she said. “And people said ‘They’re not together.’ And we were getting anonymous messages saying, ‘Yeah, she wasn’t with him and she was crying all day’…Meanwhile, we were really in bed all day on Valentine’s Day. Like, seriously. We were in bed all day and then I got up and opened these three, amazing gifts. And then I went back to bed. And then I read this story that we weren’t together on Valentine’s Day…So, now I don’t really care to say ‘I’m in a relationship’ or ‘I’m engaged’ or whatever. There’s a boy that likes me. That’s all.”
