Remember back in May and June when Nicki Minaj and Nas sparked dating rumors after the two were caught snuggling up to each other on IG and spending a lot of time together? While things seemed to have died down for a little bit this Summer or so we thought, it turns out the two Queen super stars are still enjoying each other’s company.
On Wednesday night, footage surfaced of Nas celebrating his birthday at a restaurant presumably in NYC, and right by his side under his arm is his rumored girlfriend Nicki Minaj. From what we can see, Nicki appears to be snuggled up under Nas’ arm like their more than just friends, while her hand rests on his stomach and a chocolate birthday cake is brought out to their table and friends & family sing “happy birthday” to the rap mogul.
While this of course doesn’t confirm their relationship by any means, it does add more fuel to the fire. Back in May, Nicki stopped by The Ellen Show and addressed her relationship with Nas at that time.
“He’s so dope […] he’s such a king,” Minaj said. “We’re both from Queens. He’s the king of Queens, and I’d like to think I’m the queen of Queens. He’s a rap legend, and I have a lot of respect for that. And he’s kinda cute too.”
When Ellen asked the question that many had been dying to hear the answer to: “Have you had sleepovers yet?” Nicki replied…
“We have!. I just thought him coming to me was too forward. Let me clarify, [I’m] just chilling right now, I’m celibate. I wanted to go a year without dating any men, I hate men. But I might make an exception to the rule for him.”
However, if Nas is trying to make Nicki his girl, he better watch out for her “hero” Seth Rogen, who had some kind words for her in a recent twitter exchange earlier this week (see here).
