While accepting her Female Music Artist of 2018 award at the E! People’s Choice Awards, Nicki Minaj, not so subtly, addressed Michael B Jordan — suggesting he might later disrobe her of her Donatella Versace outfit.
This led to rumors that Nicki Minaj may be dating the Creed star. Nicki Minaj has been previously linked to Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton and she had been in relationships with rapper Meek Mill and Love and Hip-Hop cast member Safaree.
Michael B Jordan’s dating life has been under intense scrutiny in recent weeks and months with the actor being forced to debunk rumors about his dating preferences.
While it is more likely that Nicki Minaj is crushing on the 31-year-old actor than that they are already dating, fans are hopeful that the two will eventually become a power couple. Many Nicki Minaj fans took to Twitter to react to the Chun-Li rapper publicly hitting on Jordan, who played Erik Killmonger in Black Panther.

Nicki also took home the People’s Choice Album of 2018 award for her album Queen. Michael B. Jordan was yet to respond to Nicki’s callout at the time of writing.
The actor is currently on a promo tour alongside Sylvester Stallone for Creed II, which will be the eighth installment in the Rocky film series.
So are Nicki Minaj and Michael B. Jordan dating? Probably not but fans certainly approve of the public flirting.
