Incarcerated rapper Remy Ma has shot down rumors she had an affair with singer Nicki Minaj, insisting she is "not gay".
The 28-year-old hip-hop star - real name Reminisce Smith - married rapper Papoose in jail shortly after she was convicted of assault, weapons possession and attempted coercion for shooting Makeda Barnes Joseph in the abdomen during a fracas in July, 2007. She has been dogged by persistent rumors of an affair after a video surfaced online last year allegedly showing Minaj declaring they had a relationship.
But Remy Ma is keen to set the record straight, calling a Connecticut radio station on Tuesday, February 23 to clear up the rumors. She told the Jenny Boom Boom show, "I'm not gay, how would I have sex (with) Nicki Minaj? No, I never had sex with Nicki, anybody. I've never done girls ever in my life and I never would."
"Actually, that video came out years ago. I was home; actually, when it first surfaced, and I don't know who that is. I don't even know what the logic was behind that. As far as (what) Nicki (is) like as a person, I'm cool with her. Like, when she was coming up, she used to go to my parties and I used to go to her parties and we was cool (sic). I've never had a problem with her."
