Nicki Minaj announced on Thursday that she will be retiring to start a family.
In news that disappointed many of her longtime fans — who she affectionally refers to as Barbz — Minaj said in an emoji-laden tweet, “I’ve decided to retire & have my family.”
“I know you guys are happy now,” she said.
The rapper also urged her supporters to “keep reppin me, do it til da death of me,” a nod to her 2012 “Girl on Fire” collaboration with the singer Alicia Keys.
Representatives for Minaj did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed News’ request for comment. But the rapper’s tweet with met with skepticism since she has been known to pull an elaborate ruse from time to time.
