Nicki Minaj burned the internet on Friday when she seemed to confirm to an Instagram fan that she and Eminem were together – but according to a new report, it was just a joke.
Minaj, 35, tapped Eminem on YG's new single "Big Bank" (which also features Big Sean and 2 Chainz), that she met "Slim Shady" and "as soon as he turns black, he's back "
" I met Slim Shady, got an EM !!! ", she wrote on Instagram and headlined her video post.
It did not take long for a follower to ask Minaj, "You're Eminem?" Minaj simply replied, "Yes." 1

This might explain why Eminem (n. Marshall Bruce Mathers III), 45, got involved with the joke – answer to Minaj's statement, "Girl, you know it's true."
"Babe, I thought we would keep it low until the wedding," Minaj told the rapper. I'll talk to you when I get home. "
The exchange between Eminem and Minaj, who jokingly jokes about social media, came months after Eminem Vulture had said that he did not had been much dated.
"It's tough, I have had some dates since my divorce and nothing has changed so much that I wanted to make it public," he said. "Dating just is not where I am lately."
Eminem, who was previously married to Ex Kim Scott, later said that he mainly uses Tinder to meet women. Occasionally, he breaks out of the digital realm and seeks love in the real world.
"I also went to strip clubs," he admitted. "What can I say, going to strip clubs was like meeting some girls, it was an interesting time for me."
