North Philadelphia native and rapper Meek Mill is on the market, ladies.
His girlfriend, rapper Nicki Minaj, said in a tweet Thursday that she is single.
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🎀— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) January 5, 2017
Mill, 29, whose real name is Robert Williams, has had an interesting year and a half. He got into a long, public feud with Drake that led to several diss tracks and accusations from both. He served three months on house arrest earlier in 2016 after violating parole. Tragically, in September, his cousin was killed in a South Philadelphia shooting.
The ups and downs haven't stopped Mill from making music, however. In October, he released the Dreamchasers 4 mixtape.
Now, Mill will have a breakup as writing material. Mill and Minaj started dating in early 2015, but both were seen celebrating New Year's Eve in Miami, sparking breakup rumors that were confirmed with Minaj's tweet, the New York Daily News notes.
