, Nicki Minaj and Drake have a "complicated" relationship — after all, they've broken up twice — but a source close to the pair revealed his feelings towards her may be deeper than fans realize. Unfortunately, it's the rappers' strong friendship that has kept them from taking things to the next level.
"Drake loves absolutely everything about Nicki; he idolizes her," the source said. They're "like family, like brother and sister," the source continued.
Another source told Hollywood Life that the "Love the Way You Lie" singer is still affected when her on-again, off-again relationship with Drake ultimately ended for good.
