Let us take you through a timeline of Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill's relationship, from their flirty tweets back in 2010 to their official status today.
It's never been clear exactly when the too first hooked up, or even when they first became friends. But the first public interaction between Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill was on Twitter in 2009. A year later, they were regularly joking around with one another.
Five years later, it kind of paid off.
Meek rapped; "I love Nicki Minaj, I swear ya'll I admit it/ I hope one day I can f**k her just to say I f**king hit it."
Meek tweeted that he was impressed with Nicki's performance.
Which explained the photos of the two of them in the studio together!
In December 2014, not long after her split, Nicki stopped by the Ryan Seacrest show where she spoke about the Meek Mill rumours. She said, “Let me clear this up: I am SINGLE. People are just assuming these things and I don’t know why. This is my friend. I’m just hanging out. We don’t look at each other like that at all!” Picture: Instagram
Nicki addresses Meek as Rahmeek, his middle name, in their 'The Pinkprint' collaboration. She raps on the song (which was probably written whilst she was still with her ex); "Cause it's too much, and it's too clutch/ Who wants rumors of the two of us/ But when you're away I can't get you out of my mind/ But what if I met the one and you're wasting your time".

Vogue asked: "People are saying that you two are dating. Is he a part of the fun you’re having?" and Nicki replied: "Sometimes we hang out, and when we hang out, we have fun. [laughs] This is what I want to say about him: People think for some strange reason that we just started becoming friends recently. We’ve been friends for a very, very long time, and he’s been around for a lot of things that I’ve gone through. And that’s all I’ll say about that."
The rapper announced to a 20,000 strong crowd that he managed to bag Nicki because he's from Philly!
And everyone in the audience wore Meek Mill masks, which creeped Nicki out a bit. Picture: Instagram
Yet, they still wouldn't admit that they were a couple! Picture: Instagram
Meek Mill and Nicki will get some real time together as he joins her for the North American leg of her 'The Pinkrint Tour' later this year. Picture: Instagram
He shared this photo on Instagram and wrote; "Find a woman that you think is strong enough 2 help you takeover the world!" The hashtags he used to accompany the image include 'richatheartandatpocket' and 'imlucky.'
They may have only been dating a matter of months, but earlier this year it looked like Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill were engaged. The 'Anaconda' rapper posted a series of tweets and Instagram posts (including one of a ring) that certainly suggested they were set to tie the knot. Weirdly, just weeks later the couple said they weren't engaged. Are they playing us all?
For months, Meek Mill and Drake went in on each other in a series of tweets and freestyles... Drizzy even rapped on 'Back To Back' "Is that a world tour or your girls tour?" (in reference to Meek supporting Nicki's 'The Pinkprint Tour.') Nicki, who is labelmates and good friends with Drake, stayed very quiet on the situation. Picture: Getty
"To confirm, yes I am single," the female rapper tweeted. "Focusing on my work & looking forward to sharing it with you guys really soon. Have a blessed New Year." Picture: Instagram
