Nicki Minaj’s mother was wary of Meek Mill
Rapper Nicki Minaj has said her mother was not happy when she began dating boyfriend Meek Mill following split from Safaree Samuels in late 2014 after 12 years of relationship.
The star, 32, said the women in her life, including her mother, Carol <g data-gr-id="39">Maraji</g>, were initially wary of the 28-year-old rapper because they feared he would break her heart, reported Female First.
“My mother only knows Meek from what she sees in public, in the media. She’s met him now, but she just wants to make sure he’s a nice guy. She’s overprotective of her daughter. I’ve only had three boyfriends in my whole life. I’ve never dated around.
“I don’t have a whole lot of experience in that department so my mother and my family were very like, ‘What?’ This is a big <g data-gr-id="108">step,</g> because they’ve only known one thing for over a decade. “Even my pastor, who’s like a second mother, was scared.
Those women were scared for me because when I love someone I really let them in, and I really let my guard down, and I think it’s only natural for a mother to just you know, she just wanted to make sure I wasn’t rushing into anything.”
