With this tweet, rapper Nicki Minaj laid to rest all the rumours and speculations of her split from boyfriend, Meek Mill.
The couple had been together since early 2015 after Nicki ended her 12 year relationship with rapper, Safaree Samuels. Although Meek is yet to officially respond to the breakup, he shared a rather petty post on his Instagram.
Meek put up a photo of the shoes Nicki Minaj and Ciara wore in a 2013 breakup track I’m out with the caption, “If you walk out don’t wear these they wack“. He later deleted the post.

Nicki in an interview in November 2016 had sort of made it clear that she’ll do just fine without Meek. She said, “Nowadays, I feel like [young women] see marrying into money—I think that’s a big thing now. I don’t want that to be a woman’s goal in life. I want your goal in life to be to become an entrepreneur, a rich woman, a career-driven woman“.
