Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill have apparently broken up.

Minaj tweeted on Thursday,: "To confirm, yes I am single."

Minaj added that she's focusing on her work and looking forward to sharing it soon.

Mill and Minaj were one of hip hop's most prominent couples. They frequently performed together and could be seen courtside at NBA games.

In 2015, she testified on Mill's behalf in a Philadelphia court in an effort to keep him out of jail over probation violations and promised to keep Mill in line. A defence lawyer also said at the time the couple was seriously discussing marriage.

So far, Mill hasn't commented on the split.
