Nas and Nicki Minaj Break Up — and Here’s Why

Looks like it’s happily never after for rappers Nas and Nicki Minaj.

Despite pregnancy rumors, earlier today it was announced that hip-hop love birds Nas and Nicki Minaj decided to go their separate ways after about six months of dating. According to TMZ, Nas, 44, and Minaj, 35, made a decision to part amicably after work got in the way of their romance. Between the distance and their individual business ventures (Nas with his label and restaurant chain Sweet Chicks, and Minaj with her ongoing projects outside of music), they just couldn’t seem to make it work.

On the upside, according to sources, the two have no plans to trash one another and will remain respectful. We guess this is the first official Hollywood breakup of 2018. Yikes!
