Did Drake and Nicki Minaj get married, or are they just using Twitter to faux-fulfill their fans’ dreams of a royal hip-hop coupling?
Young Money’s prince and princess tweeted each other on Friday afternoon (Aug. 27) about supposedly getting hitched, and their followers went into a re-tweeting frenzy when Minaj wrote, “Yes, its true. Drake and I tied the knot.”
Shortly afterward, Drake tweeted, “Please refer to @nickiminaj as Mrs. Aubrey Drake Graham and dont stare at her too long. She’s finally mine. :)”
Asked whether Drake and Minaj really did get married, a source close to both artists would neither confirm or deny the tweets, but alluded to them being a joke.
This isn’t the first time Drake has expressed marital affection for Minaj. On the track “Miss Me” off his debut album “Thank Me Later,” the Toronto rapper rhymes, “I love Nicki Minaj, I told her, I’d admit it/I hope one day we get married just to say we f***ing did it/And girl, I’m f***ing serious with it if you with it/’Cause your verses turn me on, and your pants are mighty fitted.”
