Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Music superstars Nicki Minaj and Nas have reportedly split after eight months of dating.
Sources told TMZ the couple called it quits "a few weeks ago" after the relationship fizzled out. Minaj and Nas living in different cities was said to have played a role in the breakup.
Word of Minaj and Nas' split follows rumors Minaj is pregnant with her first child, although insiders denied the 35-year-old rapper is expecting. MTO News had reported Tuesday that Minaj discovered she was pregnant over Thanksgiving.
Minaj's ex-boyfriend Sarafree Samuels was among those to react to the stars' reported split. Samuels commented on an Instagram post from The Shade Room about the breakup, which the website later shared.
"Yup we've both been having bad luck in this department..." the 36-year-old rapper wrote, appearing to reference his own split from Alexis Skyy.
Minaj and Nas were first spotted in April following Minaj's split from Meek Mill. Meek Mill said in an interview with Power 99 Philadelphia radio station in July that his breakup with Minaj was a "loss."
"Breaking up with anyone you love is a loss. Period," the rapper said.
