However, the day time legend couldn’t let Onika leave her set without addressing some rumors from social media. Last March, she hit up the Paris Fashion Week, and had an eye-raising outfit with her left breast exposed for us to al enjoy. With Ellen throwing subtle flirtations, she transitioned to asking whether or not she was dating hip-hop icon, Nas. Watch more from the conversation above, where she explains their briefly relationship, that involves sleepovers.
Nicki Minaj sat down with Ellen recently to discuss the relationship rumors between her and fellow Queens emcee, Nas.

Nicki was not hesitant to say that Nas “Is so dope,” “Is a King” & “Cute,” all while blushing and becoming obviously giddy during the interview. Ellen pushed the topic and asked Nicki if her and Nas had any “Sleepovers” yet, which Nicki confirmed that she has slept over Nas’ house.
Nicki did point out that she has taken a year of celibacy because she “hates men,” but would possibly make an exception for the Illmatic emcee.
