Fans hoping to see Nicki Minaj and Eminem walking the red carpet arm in the arm should take a breather because this Nicki Minaj and Eminem relationship update suggest that they aren’t dating — at least not yet. On Sunday, May 27, after wrapping up a performance at Boston Calling, Eminem addressed claims that he was dating Minaj, just a few days after Minaj sparked a media frenzy by claiming on Instagram that she was dating the “Lose Yourself” rapper.
Nicki Minaj and Eminem are two well-known names in the music industry who are constantly in the news and in the public eye.
The two artists have reached a new milestone in their respective careers by being the singers with the most AMAs to date. They have each received eight American Music Awards.
However, it appears that while some fans are celebrating their professional achievements, others are more concerned with whether the two are dating.
Is Eminem Dating Nicki Minaj?
Nicki Minaj and Eminem are not a couple. The two rappers are not in a relationship, despite the fact that they would make an impressive celebrity couple.
The dating rumours began in 2018 when Nicki mentioned Eminem in a verse of her song “Big Bank” (by rapper YG). As she put it,
I informed them that I had met Slim Shady Bag the Emcee.
He’ll reappear once he’s gone black.
The speculation was fueled further when a fan (via NME) asked the ‘Tusa’ singer: “You dating Eminem?”
Nicki replied, “Yes.”
That, however, was a joke, as the singer later explained to TMZ that she was simply having fun by teasing her fans on social media.
Eminem Answered The Dating Rumours
Following Nicki’s remarks, Eminem joined in on the fun, fueling dating rumours between him and the singer.
During his performance at Boston Calling, he addressed the rumours by asking the audience:
“How many of you in Boston would like me to date, Nicki Minaj?” Goddammit, I’m guilty as charged. If you receive this message, Nicki, please text me later and we’ll discuss it.”
Nicki responded to Eminem’s comments with the best response. Here’s what she said in a 2018 tweet.
Who Dates Nicki Minaj?
Many people on social media ask, “Who is Nicki Minaj dating?” but Nicki is already married. Kenneth Petty is her husband’s surname.
One year after they started dating, the couple married in October 2019.
Nicki and Kenneth have given birth to a son. In Los Angeles, they welcomed their first child on September 30th.
