Right by her side! Nicki Minaj shared a cozy photo with fellow rapper Meek Mill on Monday, Feb. 2. 

The "Anaconda" performer, 32, posted an image via Instagram of herself cuddling up to the Maybach Music Group performer as he kisses her on the cheek and embraces her. 

In the snuggly shot, Minaj wears an oversized plush blue coat with black detailing over a black top with distressed jeans. Wearing her dark hair sleekly pulled back and sporting chic winged eyeliner, she gives a slight smile as the "FYM" rapper gets affectionate with her.

Born Robert Rahmeek Williams, Meek Mill looks stylish in a pair of red pants paired with royal blue shoes, a white T-shirt, chains, and a black leather jacket.

While Minaj shared the intimate picture without a caption, fans quickly took the shot as proof that the two performers are dating. There was speculation for weeks that they were a couple, after Minaj shared earlier photos with Meek and the two were reportedly spotted holding hands earlier this week. 

Minaj, who worked with Meek on two tracks off of her recent album The Pinkprint, addressed the rumors in a radio interview this past December. 

"We're friends," she said to Power 106 FM at the time of the Philadelphia-raised rapper. "We're friends, he's dope, shout-out to him." 

The rumors followed Minaj's earlier split from her longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels. After dating for 11 years, the pair called it quits last year and the breakup inspired much of Minaj's latest album. She has yet to address Twitter's latest frenzy of her supposed coupling with Meek Mill.
