Nicki Minaj & Nas Spark Romance Rumors with ‘Sweet’ Date

Nicki Minaj is fueling Nas romance rumors by posting a “Sweet” and simple photograph.

On Tuesday (May 10), the Generous Queen shared a flick, which features Nas beside her with his arm around her. “Only KINGS recognize QUEENS,” she wrote. “@sweetchicklife has the best food…congrats @nas.”

Nicki’s caption was in reference to Sweet Chick, Esco’s restaurant chain, which has two locations in New York and one in L.A.

But Nicki and Nas weren’t dining at Sweet Chick alone. Producer Statik Selektah also shared a selfie from the table with the caption: “Dinner with Nas & Nicki.” Minaj can be seen in the background, holding an Emmy.

Meanwhile, Nas didn’t share a photo from Sweet Chick at all. Instead, he posted a pic Pearl’s, another New York eatery. “Just had Pearls with some folks from The NY Times,” he wrote. “Crusin up the block for a night cap b4 the stu yeeaaaa.”

While their relationship is unclear, that didn’t stop Twitter from giving them a nickname, NasNika, which became a trending topic.

This isn’t the first time Nicki and Nas have fueled dating rumors. Back in 2012, Esco appeared as Minaj’s love interest in the music video for her Chris Brown-assisted single “Right By My Side.”

In any case, both Nicki and Nas are expected to drop albums this year. It will be Esco’s first release since 2012’s Life Is Good and Minaj’s first since 2014’s The Pinkprint.
