Nicki Minaj and Rihanna Fighting Over Drake? Rumors of Dating Conflict Emerge

Rihanna and Nicki Minaj have never had the best of relationships, although they have been civil with one another until now. However, if recent rumors in celebrity magazines are to be believed, the pair are currently in the middle of a feud, with many claiming that Drake is the one at the center.

According to OK magazine, a source claims that Minaj is not happy with how Rihanna is treating Drake.

Drake and Rihanna have had a very public on-and-off relationship, and the couple's latest fallout allegedly upset Drake a lot.

A source to OK magazine has said, "Drake has been really down since Rihanna dumped him. She really broke his heart. Nicki wants to call Rihanna out on it. She's very protective of Drake."

The source also claimed Minaj "wants Rihanna to get off her pedestal."

Drake and Rihanna were previously dating but split up in May, but the reason for the split is still unknown. Some at the time claimed that Rihanna is not yet ready to settle down.

Minaj has never been someone to back away from a confrontation; fans will remember how at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, she ordered Rihanna to "sit the **** down" when the singer tried to hug the rapper after losing an award to her.

Minaj is known to have a friendly relationship with Drake, and some are saying it is their history together that makes her more sensitive to how Rihanna is treating him.

Minaj once said in an interview, "One day, I will run away with Drake and get married, but right now it's just a fantasy."
