The artist teased a relationship with a "white guy" on her song, "Barbie Tingz," and gave the rapper a shout-out in her latest feature for YG's "Big Bank," Billboard reported.

When a fan asked if she's dating Eminem on her Instagram page, Minaj responded with, "yes."


On "Big Bank," which released on Friday and features Big Sean and 2Chainz, Minaj raps, "Told them I met Slim Shady, bag the Em/ Once he go black, he'll be back again."

Eminem publicly addressed the rumors over the weekend, and responded to the fan comment on Minaj's Instagram post.

"Girl, you know it's true," he wrote, to which Minaj replied, "Babe, I thought we were gonna keep it on the low til the wedding. Yikes. I'll talk to you when I get home."

But according to CNN, it seems the rappers were playing a little joke.

During a Sunday concert in Boston, Eminem asked the audience, "How many of you want me to date Nicki Minaj?" Fans cheered.

"Well, god dammit, me too," he said. "Nicki, if you get this message, just text me later, we'll talk about it."

Minaj loved it. "Em, we need you on the #Queen album," she tweeted. "That's where our 1st date will be."
