If Nicki Minaj was trying to quash rumours that her relationship with Meek Mill was on the rocks then she may want to try a different approach. Amid ongoing reports that the pair had a heated argument about living together, the Anaconda singer has been flirting with the single lifestyle by showing off her curves in a series of Instagram posts.

The 33-year-old star shared three pictures of her posing in a yellow swimsuit, and another snap of her in a similar white emblazoned swimsuit hours after it was claimed that the couple's latest fight could turn their relationship into a "trainwreck."

A Hollywood Life report claimed that tensions between Minaj and the House Party rapper had reached boiling point. "There is definitely truth behind their fights, but they both live for it," a source told the celebrity gossip site, adding: "They know how to push each other's buttons and actually end up loving each other more after an epic yell fest."

The alleged fall out comes as Meek Mill's legal woes intensify. In February, the Philadelphia rapper, whose name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, was sentenced to 90-day house arrest after being found guilty of violating his probation, which stemmed from drug and gun charges in a 2008 conviction. Their argument is said to have stemmed from the fact that he wanted his partner to stay with him in Philadelphia during the stint, but she flat out refused.

The insider continued: "Now that Meek has 90 days in house arrest this will test everything," adding: "There relationship will flourish into marriage or be a complete trainwreck and they will break up. And it's all up to Nicki and if she wants to visit him or not, she is wearing the pants because Meek still wants it to be a thing."

Minaj started dating the Ambition hitmaker in December 2014 after splitting from long-time boyfriend Safaree Samuels. In April 2015, she sparked speculation that she was engaged after uploaded a photo of a diamond ring emotion on Twitter. But the 28-year-old Maybach Music star told Fader magazine that marriage was not on the cards just yet.

"It's definitely real, but ain't really time to get married yet. We're still learning each other, feeling each other out," he said.
