Why did Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill split up? The "Anaconda" rapper confirmed Thursday morning that she and Mill are no longer together. The announcement came as Soulja Boy declared his love for Minaj on Instagram.
"To confirm, yes I am single," Minaj tweeted. "Focusing on my work & looking forward to sharing it with you guys really soon. Have a blessed New Year. Love u."

Minaj's tweet came just days after TMZ reported that the rappers didn't spend New Year's Eve together. They both performed and partied in separate Miami clubs on Dec. 31. Mill also partied without Minaj on Dec. 30 and Jan. 1. And they reportedly spent Christmas apart, as well.
In fact, rumors have been swirling for weeks that Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill split up. Back in November, Minaj posted a series of memes that many thought were evidence of a fight with Meek Mill. One of them read, "Never help an ungrateful person get on their feet. It's like telling a wolf that you're a sheep." Mill then replied under the post, "That’s why (I) make sure I stand on my own and was M’d up when I met you."
A short time later, Meek Mill posted another cryptic meme hinting at relationship problems. The meme read, "Some of y'all need to learn how to enjoy your man's company instead of picking fights with him 24/7." Mill then added next to the photo, " Be lit & not in misery ..... I just wanna win and ball with my lady not be drilled... that's the only that keep my functioning!!! on my A GAME...This give me motivation!"
Then, last month, the Meek Mill split rumors intensified when Nicki Minaj quoted the lyrics to Beyonce's "Best Thing I Never Had" on Instagram. "Thank God u blew it. Thank God I dodged the bullet. I’m so over u. Baby good lookin out," Minaj wrote. Meek Mill temporarily deleted his Instagram a short time later, further convincing fans that he and Nicki Minaj had split for good.
But now that Minaj and Mill are done, fans are wondering just how long she will stay single. Around the same time she posted her tweet, Soulja Boy declared his love for Minaj with the Instagram post above. He also posted several pictures of him and Minaj together.
Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill were first linked in late 2014, and it wasn't long before things got serious. The rap couple moved in together in August. Minaj and Mill even faced (false) engagement rumors several times over the past year. And just a month before Minaj confirmed the split, Mill posted a sexy photo of Minaj on her birthday.
