With 'The Pinkprint' album set for release this week (Dec. 16), Nicki Minaj is making the promo rounds to discuss the project. The conversation quickly turned to her love life when she sat down to talk with Power 106's 'Big Boy's Neighborhood' in Los Angeles.

The rapper has been linked to Meek Mill recently -- he appears on 'Buy a Heart' and 'Big Daddy' on ‘The Pinkprint’ -- and Big Boy addressed the rumors in a hilarious way, so as not to upset her.

She addressed the collaboration before clearing the air on if there's a romance brewing between the two. “He had his people send me both of those songs for 'The Pinkprint’... because he thought he was going to be home in time [from jail] to be on ‘Favorite,'” Nicki said. “When he realized he wasn’t, his people reached out and said, 'You know Meek wants to give you a couple songs to choose from. He sent me five songs and I chose ‘Buy a Heart’ and ‘Big Daddy.'”

Big Boy then turned up the heat and asked Nicki how she felt about turning down the chance to appear on more songs from “her man.”

After a few laughs, Nicki got serious and shut down any rumors that she and Meek are an item, saying, “We’re friends, he’s dope. Shout out to him.”

Well, there you have it. Nicki may not be with Meek, but she's apparently a single woman since ending her relationship with Safaree.
