Nicki Minaj assNicki Minaj’s “assets” have long been a topic of discussion in hip-hop circles, since she broke onto the scene with her mixtapes nearly four years ago.

As her profile in music rose, her backside seemed to become more voluptuous. The question that has always been asked is: is her ass real? Or is it fake?

One celebrity, who has also dealt with similar questions, recently claimed that it was definitely fake … because Nicki admitted it to her.

“I read that it wasn’t. I thought that she came out with it. I heard it from her,” Ice-T’s wife, Coco, said in an interview with Perez Hilton.

Sensing that she may have said too much, Coco quickly backtracked. “Okay I don’t know… We’re not even going to go there anymore. You know, what I say about a lot of stylists that work with me… They work with me, they touch my body, they’re doing stuff all day long. So they’re doing that same thing to Nicki Minaj and they’re saying a little bit different,” she continued.

While Nicki has never publicly addressed the interest in her backside, she previously told the New York Post that she’s amazed people even care.

“People will pick anything to talk about, and that happens to be the thing at the moment. I love being a conversation piece,” Nicki told the paper.

Coco has been making her rounds, doing press in support of her new E! reality show, “Ice Loves Coco”, which airs on Sundays at 10:30 p.m. EST.
