SOHH Whatcha Think: What If Amber Rose's Pics Were Really Sent To Nicki Minaj's Boyfriend?

Now let's not act like this is an absurd theory. One thing you have to love about celebrities is the initial denials and "clarifications" shortly down the road. Just like Amber Rose said she had only been with Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa over the past couple years...and then admitted she hooked up with NFL star Reggie Bush in-between. Let's take a closer look...

For starters, while I may not like to agree with Media Take Out's often direct and obnoxiously-presented "facts" via their unnamed sources there seems to be a legitimate argument you can make. If memory serves me correct, Amber Rose and Nicki Minaj were the closest thing to BFF's in 2009 and 2010, all the way up to December of last year...when these now-exposed graphic photos were allegedly sent. Think back and you can recall multiple instances we saw them together:

Keep in mind, those videos all stem from either mid/late 2009 up until last summer. From the "Massive Attack" music video to Rose attending Minaj's Complex Magazine video shoot and saying she's with her "Barbie Forever" Nicki Minaj, these two appeared inseparable. To add more fuel to my argument, Minaj even credited Rose for getting her hooked up with Kanye West.

"Well I was great friends with Amber Rose when they were dating and she had recommended me to him for his album and finally I guess he relented [laughs]," Minaj said of meeting West. "One day I got a call from her and she said Kanye wanted me to come down to Hawaii and record for the album. He told me I could pick what I wanted to be on. I heard the beat for 'Monster.' I fell in love with it and that's how the 'Monster' verse happened...When it came to me putting my album out, I was like 'I can't have an album without Kanye. He has to be a part of it.' He's become my mentor, he gives me advice, he hits me, takes random pictures off-line and says 'Oh this is a good picture of you.' He's really into fashion so he's a good person to have a well-rounded conversation with." (RWD Mag)

Since the December 2010 interview, the two have been seen hardly together. Sure, Minaj's massive Pink Friday success could have had something to do with it along with Amber Rose falling in love with Wiz Khalifa, so hanging out time may have been slimmed down. However, things still seem a bit fishy. Even with Rose's denials, it seems strange these two have not been as close as past times. Until I am proven, yes proven, differently, I must side with MTO's assertion suggesting these pics sent to Minaj's boyfriend Safaree ultimately divided them.

Maybe time will tell otherwise, but the more important question we all should be asking is "why" did Rose even get this graphic in the first place?
