Minaj has built a whole career around being outspoken, particularly about the (mis)treatment of women in the entertainment industry. Most recently, her name has been in people's mouths after she called out the whitewashing of the MTV Video Music Awards. "If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year," she tweeted in a series of messages. "When the 'other' girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination. If I was a different 'kind' of artist, Anaconda would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well."

The fallout from the Remy Ma’s “ShETHER” diss track continues to resonate as the different parties named in the beef with Nicki Minaj speak out.

Hot 97 personality Ebro Darden was accused of sleeping with Nicki in the track, and he finally set the record straight during his morning show on Monday.

“I did not have sexual relations with that woman in any way, shape, or form,” he told Peter Rosenberg on Ebro in the Morning.

Ebro explained that he has  always had a professional relationship with Nicki, even though they do go out and party every now and then.

“I’ve never been alone with Nicki Minaj,” he said. “Ever. At a bar or with her friends or management. It was always work.”

He did, however, admit to grabbing her thigh at a party, though seemingly blaming her appearance as the reason.

“Remember when she came in that outfit? That Halloween party? We was all there. I definitely was like, 'Yooo.'”

The interview was definitely some form of damage control following the back-and-forth Ebro had with Papoose, Remy’s husband, on Twitter. 

On Sunday morning, Ebro tweeted that Remy's claims were a lie:

We have yet to hear a rap response from Nicki, who instagrammed photos from a videoshoot Monday.

We’re watching it all!
