After reports emerged recently that Nas and Nicki Minaj have been dating since May, the alleged power couple posted a new batch of photos to their respective Instagram accounts on 17 September.
This time, the photos captured the pair posing in matching Gucci gear next to the Nas’ 1988 190E Mercedes-Benz. The car is something he evidently picked up for his 44th birthday.
Nas’ caption read: ‘Got my Bday 1988 190E Benz & picked up Shorty from Queens! We Out!’
Minaj also posted on her account with the caption: ‘Nasty Nas hopped out the illmatic ’88 benz tryna holla @ me earlier today in Queens’.
However, despite the circulating rumours and social media posts by the pair, a source close to Minaj said that the two are “just very dear friends”.
The insider said, “Nicki and Nas are just very dear friends nothing romantic. They’ve been friends forever and have seen each other’s careers take off. Nas and John Seymour have recently just opened their second restaurant Sweet Chick in LA. The original Sweet Chick is in THE LES in NYC. Nicki has been to both spots and always supportive of him and his new ventures”.
Although Minaj is supportive of Nas, it sounds like it’s just a friendly relationship right now.
“They share a really close friendship and always have each other’s back,” the source told E! online. “Nicki is single now and dating but nothing serious. Nas is a best friend to her so as of now nothing is stirring up. People always joke around though that they make a great couple”.
Earlier in May however, Minaj did admit on Ellen DeGeneres’ show that she has been for sleepovers at Nas’ home. However, she stressed that “We didn’t do the…” – implying they haven’t had sex.
“I’m celibate. I might make an exception to the rule for him, because he’s so dope”.
