According to reports, Nicki and Nas quietly broke up a few weeks ago largely due to distance issues.
There were recent reports Nicki was pregnant, but we’re told there’s no truth to that. Both superstars will be getting back to strictly biz, we’re told — Nas focusing on his record label and his chicken and waffles joint, Sweet Chick. We’re told they respect each other, and there won’t be any trash talking — but, on the other hand, we’re also told they won’t be hanging out as friends either. (TMZ)
A few months ago, buzz developed about Nas’ ex-wife Kelis wanting social media to stop dragging her into the Nicki dating coverage.
