Are they dating or not? This is the burning question fans are asking ever since Nas and Nicki Minaj were spotted getting super cozy at the rap veteran's 44th birthday party on Wednesday night (Sept. 13). According to a source, the answer is yes, they are dating.

An insider has told E! News that Escobar and the Queen Barbz are indeed dating, but they are taking things slow. In fact, they have been dating since May.

"Nicki is not the type to date around," said the source. "They are still getting to know each other."

On Thursday (Sept. 14), Nas' actually birthday, the rapper-entrepenuer posted a photo on his Instagram page of himself with Minaj at his party with the caption, "Virgo Season With my Real One From Queens!" Minaj also posted a picture with Nas on her IG account. "The legend himself...#EscobarSeason," she wrote.

Rumors have been circulating that Nas and Nicki have been dating since May. The rumors were further fueled when Nicki played coy during an appearance on Ellen.

“He’s dope. He’s the king. He’s such a king,” she told Ellen. “He is the king of Queens and I’d like to think I’m the queen of Queens...well, he’s a rap legend, so let’s just say I have a lot of respect for him and you know, he’s kind of cute, too.”

When Ellen asked Nicki if they had any sleepovers, she admitted that she and Nas have had “sleepovers,” but they haven’t done “the nasty.”
