Nicki Minaj testified in court on Thursday on behalf of her boyfriend, the Philly rapper known as Meek Mill.

Mill, whose real name is Robert Williams, has been accused of not only altering his court-approved travel schedule on numerous occasions, but submitting a urine sample deemed suspicious.

His legal woes stem from a 2008 conviction on drug dealing and gun charges, for which he was sentenced to 11 to 29 months in prison. However, he served no more than a few days before he was released on parole back in 2009. Under the conditions of his release, he was sentenced to five years of probation, the Los Angeles Times reported.

In 2014, the court revoked his freedom and sent him back to prison for four months after he violated the conditions of his parole multiple times.

Testifying in the Philadelphia courtroom, the 33-year-old Minaj stated that her boyfriend isn’t perfect, but he doesn’t do drugs and he didn’t fake the piss test.

While she didn’t make any wedding or engagement references–rumors sparked by diamond rings that Entertainment Tonight was quick to dismiss–she did say that her 28-year-old boyfriend is “just getting accustomed to being an adult.”

Since I’ve come in his life, I think I’ve been working on that a little bit (…) He’s just getting accustomed to being an adult.

Adding more fuel to Minaj and Meek’s rumored engagement, Meek’s lawyer, Frank DeSimone, was quoted by TMZ as having told the judge during Thursday’s hearing that Nicki “would not marry a criminal or a bum.”

Back to Meek’s legal issues, TMZ reports that legal documents show that Meek gave a urine sample to a lab technician that turned out to be cold water and told the tech that it appeared to be water because he had just consumed a substantial amount.

Minaj, who was born in Trinidad and Tobago, was sworn in under her birth given name, Onika Maraj. In her testimony on Thursday, she referred to meek as a person who “can be irresponsible” while noting that he “doesn’t have a lot of structure” in his life.”

He doesn’t have a lot of structure. He can be irresponsible.

In an interview with Billboard, “Anaconda” rapper outright dismissed rumors of her engagement to Meek while simultaneously fanning the flame as she stated that they’re “not engaged” but he did say that “he would like to give me three rings before we get married.”

He and I are not engaged. But he said he would like to give me three rings before we get married.

The first ring, which sparked rumors upon its arrival, dropped in April. The second one arrived last week on her birthday, December 8.
