Nicki Minaj is all over TV, radio and magazines, but has managed to keep her personal life private... but recently got emotional while discussing her break-up with longtime boyfriend ScaffBeezy.

During an interview with Angie Martinez this week, she reflected on her relationship.

"My relationship was based off of love," Nicki said. "And there still is nothing but love there. This is not some person I picked up off the street. This is somebody I grew up with. Like I don't even know how I'm gonna function without that person in my life. I've never lived my life as a famous person without him."

As the discussion continued, Nicki broke down in tears. "I don't think people realize it's not just a relationship or breakup. That was a humongous part of my life," she explained. "It is something that I am dealing with publicly and it's not easy. I'm also not gonna joke about it or try to disrespect him and try to act like he didn't mean the world to me and still doesn't mean the world to me. I'm just figuring it out."

She also admits that her career drove them apart. "If I wasn't a rapper, we would have children, be married, and be living happily ever after. And that's what we're both sad about because we know that this sh*t is what did it."

Nicki also addresses the single "Bed Of Lies," which many believe to be about ScaffBeezy. "I wasn't broken up when I was writing a lot of these songs," she revealed.
