Nicki Minaj “Confirms” Nas Relationship Rumors & Says They Have “Sleepovers”

A few weeks ago, rappers Nas and Nicki Minaj sparked dating rumors after a photo of them surfaced showing Nas wrapping his arms around Nicki, while having his face (lips specifically) VERY close to her neck as he gives a slight smirk while looking at the camera:

Both of them have been silent about the image…until now. Nicki Minaj appeared on Tuesday’s (May 23) episode of Ellen, where she spoke highly of the music icon:

“He is the king of Queens, and I like to think I’m the queen of Queens. He’s a rap legend. Let’s just say that I have a lot of respect for him, and, you know, he’s kind of cute, too.”

When Ellen brought up the photo, Nicki was coy but revealed that she and Nas had “sleepovers” in the past:

“Yup! I go to him ’cause…I don’t know. I just thought him coming to me was too forward.”

She added:

“Let me clarify because I know people are gonna think. We didn’t do the [nasty]. I’m just chillin’ right now. I’m celibate. I wanted to go a year without dating any man. I hate men. But, he…I might make an exception to the rule for him, ’cause he’s so dope.”

While Nicki isn’t exactly confirming a “dating” relationship with Nas, she is confirming that they are great friends. That relationship alone is enough, but I am personally wondering what happens at these sleepovers they have, since Nicki states that they haven’t been “intimate.”
