With Nicki Minaj's upcoming nuptials, we have decided to take a trip down memory lane and review all her ex-boyfriends. The 36-year-old rapper has dated several other famous male rappers before she finally met her match. 


It's unclear if Nicki and Eminem actually dated, though Nicki referenced Eminem on a song called Big Bank. When a fan asked if she was dating 'slim shady' she replied 'Yes'. Nicki states that her first date with Eminem was at the studio. OMG!!!!!!!

On the other hand, during a concert, Eminem told the audience "Nicki let’s do this! I’ma tell you something about Nicki that she don’t even know. We go together." *shocked and confused* 

When Nicki saw a clip of the video she responded " I am extremely and utterly afraid of him."


Drake and Nicki never officially anounced that they were dating. However, there have been several questionable moments. For example, they joked about being married to each other. In fact, Nicki gave Drake a lap dance in her Anaconda music video. Although both rappers have stated multiple times that they have 'love' for one another, they insist that they are 'family'.


Nicki and Nas never confirmed that they were dating. But, when asked about her relationship with Nas on The Ellen Show, Nicki blushed really hard but simply said that they were having "sleepovers." They also posted similar pictures on instagram and Nicki was invited to Nas 44th birthday party (as pictured). The couple split in January 2018 after the relationship had run its course. 

Meek Mill

Nicki was very open about her relationship with Meek after he outed their relationship via Instagram. In 2015, Meek posted a picture of the pair together with this caption "Find a woman that you think is strong enough 2 help you takeover the world! #richatheartandatpocket #imlucky." Once the couple went public with their relationship, they started posting pictures of each other. *how cute is that?*

Meek even bought her a giant heart shaped ring that Nicki wore on her ring finger. Fans started speculating that she was engaged. However, two years later, the couple broke up. 

Safaree Samuels

Nicki and Safaree dated for 12 years and their relationship was mostly private. Towards the end of their relationship, their breakup became messy and very public. The pair officially split in 2014 after they accused each other of cheating, lying and stealing and using each other for clout. This argument took place in a very private setting... Twitter.

In 2015, during an interview with The Breakfast Club Safaree explained why the relationship ended. e said: "I just got to the point where the respect wasn't there. Everyone around her works for her, you know? So it got the point where it was like, I'm your man. I'm who you go to sleep with every night. I'm who you wake up with every morning. And it got to the point where I was being treated like an employee, instead of like her man." The couple might have had marriage on their mind as they were both spotted wearing matching rings on their ring fingers. 

Current Beau: Kenneth Petty

Nicki is currently dating 40-year-old Kenneth Petty and the two have filed for a marriage license. The pair officially started dating in December of 2018 but have actually been childhood sweethearts. *Awwwwww*

Fans have been concerned about their relationship as Kenneth was convicted of rape and manslaughter. He has also served time in prison. Nicki admitted that she initially hated him when they were teenagers. She told her followers: "Facts but we were like this about each other since we were very young kids in the hood. He was on my body b4 the big ol’ booty. B4 the fame & fortune. Fought my bf cuz I wouldn’t be his girl. He was always a lil brazy. But anyway, timing is everything".

We hope Nicki has finally found happines and we wish her the best of luck.
