Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill dating
New Couple Alert? Meek Mill plants a kiss on Nicki Minaj Instagram

Nicki Minaj may have only just split from her longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels, but don't expect the rapper to stay at home crying into her pillow.

The 32-year-old Anaconda singer has reignited speculation that she is dating fellow hip hop star Meek Mill after the couple were pictured cuddling up.

In a snap posted on Instagram, the Young Money star is shown getting kissed on the cheek by her rumoured new beau. Although there is no caption, she looks very pleased with the PDA.

The Hollywood couple first sent the rumour mill into overdrive in January when they were spotted cuddling at a Philadelphia nightclub. Although their famous friends including Wale and Rick Ross were present, Minaj only had eyes for her tall, dark and handsome fella.

And it looks like fans are already convinced that they are the next hip hop power couple.

One person that won't be giving his blessings is Samuels.

After their messy break-up, Samuels has had all his tattoos of Minaj either erased or covered up with new ink. Minaj told her Twitter followers she was "single and ready to mingle".

During a recent interview on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, Samuels hinted that Minaj preferred the single life.

"If that's who she decides to move on with, it is what it is," he said."I'm not mad, I'm not bitter because if I wanted to make it work, I could've made it work."

He added, "He don't owe me nothing. He's not the childhood friend I grew up with."

Aside from her turbulent love life, it has been a hectic few months for Minaj. She scored her first number one single in the UK for Bang Bang, her collaborative track with Jessie J and Ariana Grande, hosted the MTV Europe Music Awards and released her highly-anticipated third album, The Pinkprint.
