Tuesday, Mar 8, 2011 10:55AM
Less than 24 hours after a Nicki Minaj pregnancy rumor hit the Internet, a representative from the Barbie's camp has stepped forward to kill the speculation.
According to a Minaj rep, the Young Money star has not followed the footsteps of new moms like Alicia Keys or Keyshia Cole.
MediaTakeOut published a rumor that the performer told executives at Young Money that she was expecting a baby. But a rep for Minaj tells Gossip Cop she's "NOT pregnant." Chalk up yet another totally wrong rumor for "MediaFakeOut." (Gossip Cop)
The pregnancy rumor circulated buzzed online yesterday.
On Monday, popular urban gossip blog MediaTakeout reported the rap diva is expecting a child with hype man SB, Safaree. The top story claimed that a "ROCK SOLID insider at Young Money" told them the Harajuku Barbie was pregnant by her hype man and longtime friend. The insider continued to say that the "Right Thru Me" singer and Safaree were dumb for making this decision so early in her career, and that the Grammy nominated rapper called a meeting to inform the YM heads of her current condition.

In late February, the Young Money star talked about not pursuing love at this point in her career.
"I have no romance in my life at all, and it's not important to me right now. I have love for people who are on my team that I see every day and for my family, that's what makes me do what I do. I also have love for people that I interact with. If I have too much of the romantic love, I feel like it will distract me. Right now I feel like a robot." (BET)
Last January, Minaj publicly revealed being a single lady on the market.
"I'm proud that women, female rappers that come in this game after Nicki Minaj can see that, you know what? There is a chance for you to sell just as much as the boys and to be recognized. And you don't have to feel like, because you're a female rapper, you going to not be recognized. And so for that alone, I'm proud. I'm happy...Yes. I'm single and ready to mingle [laughs]." (E!
