A Twitter exchange between rappers Drake and Nicki Minaj has some gullible fans believing the entertainers got married.
Meanwhile, their skeptical friends point and laugh.
Friday evening, Drake tweeted, "Please refer to @nickiminaj as Mrs. Aubrey Drake Graham and dont stare at her too long. She's finally mine. :)"
On her Twitter account, Nicki Minaj wrote, "Yes, its true. Drake and I tied the knot."
Never miss a local story.
While gullible tweeters ate up the news, many fans accepted a more likely explanation: publicity stunt.
After the exchange, Billboard.com reported, "Asked whether Drake and Minaj really did get married, sources closes to both artists would not confirm or deny the tweets but alluded to them being a joke."
Drake and Nicki Minaj belong to Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment label.
