The rappers engaged in a war of words via Twitter on Wednesday, February 5. Minaj began the argument by letting her 20.5 million followers know that Meek liked one of her photos recently. The “Megatron” rapper referred to her ex as “bad built face a–” and accused Meek of being “obsessed” with her. She then mentioned that he has been adding in his two cents about her marriage to Kenneth Petty, even though the “Dreams and Nightmares” artist hasn’t been with her in years.
In her rant, Minaj then went on to accuse Meek of abusing her and several of his female family members during their relationship. She also shared that he should “move on” from her, especially since the rapper is currently dating business owner Milan Rouge Harris.
Meek spoke out against Minaj’s tweets and said that she shouldn’t be concerned about what he has been up to. He also wrote that his ex has a negative personality and is using his name because “ya bag getting low.” He also denied his ex’s accusations of abuse and claimed that she should be focused on her brother, Jelani Maraj. The rapper’s brother was recently sentenced 25 years to life in prison after allegedly sexually abusing his then-stepdaughter.
“You sad you willing to crash your man because you losing now and everybody in the industry know you a bad person!” Meek tweeted. “You been knew your brother was raping that little girl that’s why I got away from you!”
Minaj responded to Meek by saying that he was using the “alleged rape” to deflect from the fact that he did abuse her when they were together. She also retweeted several fans who joined her in accusing her former boyfriend of the abuse.
Several Twitter users saw the exchange and decided to discuss it on the popular platform. Many were engaged in the fight, while others felt the rappers’ argument was unnecessary.
“This Meek & Nicki Argument On Twitter Childish & Entertaining At The Same Time!” one user said.
“Stop bringing your relationship battles to twitter. Y’all letting a million people into y’all PERSONAL BUSINESS. None of y’all win by this. Meek & Nicki stop,” another person said.
According to Hollywood Life, Minaj and Meek dated between the years 2015 and 2017. Once the two ended their relationship, Minaj secretly married Petty in October 2019.
The social media exchange comes not long after Meek and Petty were reportedly involved in an altercation in late January. TMZ wrote that Meek stared at Minaj and Petty while they were at Maxfield boutique in West Hollywood. That alleged action resulted in a shouting match between the three in the middle of the store.
