Drake & Nicki Minaj Exchanging Sweet Messages After Rihanna Breakup [Report]

Drake has been rumored to be “infatuated” with Nicki Minaj ever since splitting with Rihanna earlier this month, and now new reports are claiming that the twosome have been sharing some sweet messages in the wake of Drake’s recent split.

According to reports, Nicki was on hand to send Drake some love for his 30th birthday on October 24 and allegedly sent the “Hotline Bling” rapper a message telling him that she “loves” him to celebrate his big day.

“Drake’s having a bomb weekend and is certainly feeling the love for his birthday,” a source revealed to Hollywood Life, alleging that some the rapper’s rumored past and present love interests have been sending him messages to celebrate his milestone birthday.

“[Drake’s] phone’s been blowing up with ‘happy birthday’ wishes from many of his past lovers,” the site’s insider alleged, claiming that Nicki and tennis star Serena Williams have both sent Drake happy birthday messages.

“Nicki sent him a sweet birthday message telling him she loves him and that she can’t work to work with him again,” the site’s insider claimed of Minaj, but alleged that Drake has had radio silence from Rihanna after the two split earlier this month.

“[Drake] ain’t heard from Rihanna yet. He thought she would have at least hit him with a long message,” Hollywood Life’s source claimed, adding that Drake still has high hopes that Rihanna may still get in contact with him, despite the couple’s breakup after dating exclusively for the past few months.

Drake is yet to confirm reports suggesting that some his love interests have been sending him sweet messages to celebrate his birthday, though it sounds like Minaj’s message probably isn’t a sign that she and Drake could soon be a couple, despite the recent slew of dating rumors swirling around the two.

According to an insider who spoke to Hollywood Life, despite reports that Drake is “infatuated” with Nicki and is now waiting out her romance with Meek Mill to make her his girlfriend, Minaj reportedly has no plans to collaborate with the rapper outside of the studio.

“Nicki Minaj loves Drake. Thinks he’s sexy and they will make more music together in the future and they are tight,” a source told the site as the dating rumors swirled, but admitted that Minaj has no plans to start dating the rapper anytime soon.

“[Nicki’s] not ready to get down on an intimate level. Not now anyway,” the Minaj insider noted as the Nicki and Drake dating rumors hit the headlines. “For one, she’s with Meek [Mill] and even though they have problems, they’re good.”

Drake has yet to officially confirm reports claiming he’s looking to start dating Nicki following his breakup with Rihanna, though he hasn’t exactly made a secret of his affections for Minaj over the past few years.

Back in 2010, Drake first professed his love for Minaj in the track “Miss Me,” where he told the world in the song’s lyrics that he “loves” Nicki and even wants to marry her.

“I love Nicki Minaj, I told her I’d admit it/I hope one day we get married just to say we f*****g did it,” Drake rapped of Minaj on the track according to Genius.com. “Girl I’m f*****g serious, I’m with it if you with it.”

Drake has since continued to gush over Nicki on numerous occasion, even suggesting that he’s looking to start dating her in a 2011 interview with The Daily Beast where he revealed that he believes Nicki is his perfect woman.

“If there’s any woman in my life that’s the ideal woman for me, it’s definitely Nicki,” Drake said of dating Minaj five years ago. “Nicki is somebody I could spend my life with because I think we understand each other.”
