Two of the biggest stars in rap appear to be sharing more than rhymes — or are they?
Minaj, 35, had rapped about Eminem on YG’s new single “Big Bank” (which also features Big Sean and 2 Chainz), saying that she had “met Slim Shady” and that “once he go black, he’ll be back again.”
“You dating Eminem???” one of Minaj’s followers asked in the comments to a video of the verse Minaj posted to Instagram.
The rapper’s reply? “Yes.”
However once Eminem, 45, answered her affirmation with “Girl you know it’s true,” fans began to suspect the back and forth may be little more than a prank.
“Babe, I thought we were gonna keep it on the low til the wedding,” Minaj jokingly responded to the rapper. “Yikes. I’ll talk to you when I get home.”
While reps for Minaj — who’s been known to jokingly flirt via social media — and Eminem did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment, news of their rumored pairing shocked the hip-hop community — many of whom commented about the surprise of their coupling on Minaj’s Instagram.
“It’s tough. Since my divorce I’ve had a few dates and nothing’s panned out in a way that I wanted to make it public,” he explained. “Dating’s just not where I’m at lately.”
Eminem, who was previously married to ex Kim Scott, went on to reveal that he mostly uses Tinder to meet women. Occasionally, he breaks out of the digital realm and seeks love in the real world.
“I also used to go to strip clubs,” he admitted. “What can I say? Going to strip clubs is how I was meeting some chicks. It was an interesting time for me.”
