When your name is Nicki Minaj, everything you do creates headlines. For the last week, people have been up in arms because of the identity of her new boyfriend. Minaj and Kenneth Petty have been dating for a few weeks but they recently went Instagram official. Fans were quick to notice that she was dating a registered sex offender in New York as Petty has spent time in prison for sexual assault and murder. Minaj's relationship status has always been under a microscope with her most famous former beaus being Meek Mill and Safaree Samuels. Nicki and Meek remain on rocky terms and it appears as though the Queen may have just sent subliminal shots at her ex-boyfriend.

She wrote on Twitter: "You NEED your ops. Therefore you’ll never be the man. You’re a son. A man stands on his own [two feet]." While this could really be interpreted as an "if the shoe fits" situation, many are responding to the tweet by suggesting it could be about Meek. If it is indeed about the Championships rapper, the cryptic tweet starts to make sense. Meek's first-ever Top 10 record on the Billboard charts will be "Going Bad," a track that features Drake. Nicki may be telling Meek that without a feature from the 6 God, he would not have seen the same success with his album.

Of course, she could also be referring to something else altogether. However, their history is leading many to believe that the subs could be for the Philly rapper.
