Nicki Minaj hopped online on Sunday to open up about an abusive relationship in her past, and encouraged her fans to support women they know who are in toxic relationships.
“When u see a woman in a toxic relationship, rather than laugh & say mean things, try to offer sound advice from your heart & root for her to learn her worth. We’ve all been there. I saw my parents fight & argue non stop & never divorce, so I thought this was normal behavior…” she wrote.
“I rlly used to think love had to hurt. So I could never look down on anyone else. We are merely human. It’s not easy to leave. Especially in the world of IG where all ppl want to do is post relationship goal pics for clout & attention. A man should make you feel safe, not afraid,” she continued. “I remember being so afraid to speak cuz I never knew when that person would be in a particular mood and I could maybe say one wrong thing that would get me hit.”
Fans online were wondering who she could be talking about, with Safaree and Meek Mill, who are the most recognizable exes of the rap star.
But Nicki did not name any names.
“If you wouldn’t let a man treat your mother, your sister or best friend like that b/c you LOVE them, then you wouldn’t let a man treat YOU like that b/c you love YOU,” she concluded the series of tweets. “This isn’t about judging. We judge too much. Lift them up.”
