Nicki Minaj rejected Drake and didn’t give their one-night stand much meaning.
Drake publicly declared his love for Nicki Minaj. He stated, “Me and Nicki have a really playful relationship,” in a 2010 interview with MTV. I was on tour when… When I first laid eyes on Nicki, I genuinely fell in love. She was wearing a snapback hat with the word “Minaj” on it. She used to put that on every day. She rapped so coldly and was like a theatre student.
The two rappers slept together just once. For Nicki, it never signalled the start of a relationship, but a source told Media Takeout that Drake was extremely hurt by it. He must have believed that they would date or have some other type of relationship.
George Shelley, who later came out as gay, rejected Selena Gomez.

Selena did visit London shortly after, and during an interview with Capital FM, she admitted that, despite her playful tone, she was actually quite offended that George didn’t call. George came out as gay a few years later, so perhaps that contributed in some way to his resistance.

Niall had the opportunity to respond with a witty clapback, telling The Project Show, “Katy, please stop treating me badly. She now looks for any opportunity to patronise me and start making up lies about me. All I want to do is be your friend. She is not that much older than him, he added.
