Nicki Minaj and Eminem have been turning up the heat with some heavy duty flirting on social media!
Last week, the rap world buzzed with dating speculations when Nicki Minaj posted a video on Instagram of her new single “Big Bank” (with 2 Chainz, Big Sean, and YG). She majorly dropped Slim Shady’s name in her verse: “Uh oh / Back again / Back to back Maybach, stack the M’s/Told ’em I met Slim Shady, bag the M / Once he go black, he’ll be back again.”
Inevitably, a curious fan asked her point blank, “You dating Eminem???”
Nicki just typed in a “Yes.” With no explanation. Is that a yes to the dating question or to something else?
Then, Eminem himself jumped on the thread and wrote “Girl you know it’s true…”
The “Chun-Li” rapper replied to him, “Babe I thought we were gonna keep it on the low til the wedding. Yikes. I’ll talk to you when I get home.”
So are they or aren’t they? Fans are wondering, and some don’t seem convinced.
But Eminem shed some light on the whole dating speculation last weekend, while he was headlining the Boston Calling Music Festival. The 45-year-old rapper called the crowd’s attention, “I wanna take this time now to give a shout out to my bae, Nicki Minaj,” he said to a cheering crowd. “Sweetheart, I’ll be home tonight to figure this **** out.”
He proceeded to ask the crowd, “Yo, Boston, how many people here want me to date Nicki Minaj?”
Apparently, everyone was shipping them! And he totally agreed with them, saying “Me too!”

Nicki quickly responded on Twitter with “”LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. The fact that he’s silly & a goof just like me. Love him so much. Em we need you on the #Queen album. That’s where our 1st date will be; at the studio while I gaze into ur beautiful eyes as u write ur verse.”
Another collab might be in the works. And maybe a date, too! We’re definitely keeping our fingers crossed.
