It’s less than a week into 2017 and there’s already been a celebrity break up. Yes, Nicki Minaj has officially split from her boyfriend Meek.

The ‘Bang Bang’ singer revealed her new relationship status on January 5, telling her fans:

To confirm, yes I am single. Focusing on my work & looking forward to sharing it with you guys really soon. Have a blessed New Year. Love u.

There had been speculation prior to Nicki’s tweet about the couple’s relationship. The pair, who have collaborated on hits such as ‘Buy a Heart’ and ‘Bad For You’, got together in the early months of 2015 although they had been friends since 2009.

It was clear that Minaj was having doubts about her relationship with Meek last year when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. 

The rap diva claimed she was single, even though it was public knowledge that she was with Meek at the time.

‘I don’t even want to say that I’m in a relationship anymore, because I think when people hear that, they go to like the mean place.’

It didn’t seem all bleak in their relationship though.

Rumours circled that the American hip hop artist had actually proposed to Minaj, with her even admitting that he used to call her his fiancée and joked her next ring would be her engagement ring.

It’s not clear what the exact reason for the split is, or whether the pair are still on amicable terms.

It does seem however that Nicki is ready to take on single life. A past interview with Marie Claire revealed just how much she believes in women being strong and independent.

You have to be able to know that you need no man on this planet at all, period,” the star added. “He should feel that, because when a man feels that you need him, he acts differently.

Nicki is carrying on 2017 as a single lady and ready to release some more chart-topping hits.
