So much for being "just very dear friends." Contrary to earlier reports, a source close to Nicki Minaj and Nas has confirmed that the two rappers are, in fact, seeing each other, and have been dating since May.
"Nicki is not the type to date around," an insider told E! News. "They are still getting to know each other."
Rumors of a relationship first started up after the pair was spotted cuddled up on Instagram. Neither party addressed the rumors until Minaj paid a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show weeks later, where she mentioned that she and Nas have had "sleepovers."
"I'm just chilling right now, I'm celibate," Nicki said. "I wanted to go a year without dating any men, I hate men. But I might make an exception to the rule for him because he's so dope."
The pair fueled romance rumors once again after they were filmed looking cozy at Nas' birthday party earlier this month, with Nas even kissing the side of Nicki's face at one point. Check it out in the clips below.
