Ming Luanli, an upcoming rapper, recently spoke openly about her estranged relationship with her older sister, Nicki Minaj, on the We In Miami podcast.

Nicki Minaj’s sister has come forward with claims that she faced relentless bullying as a result of the rapper’s lack of support for her career.

In addition to discussing her music career, inspirations, dating, and more, the 18-year-old revealed that she was bullied as a child because of her connection to the music icon.

“I used to be bullied a lot for it because people used to say, ‘Oh, if this person was your sister. Why didn’t she do this for you? Why didn’t she do that for you? And at a young age, you don’t know how to answer questions like those,” Ming Li disclosed.

Ming Li also clarified that she doesn’t want to be known because of her famous sister but wants to make a name for herself through her talent.

“I never needed her to help me reach my goal. I just needed her to see that I could do it. She could be proud of me without having to think that I needed to have the easy way to the top.”

She stated that, despite having the same father and different mothers, they were “never close.”

“I’ve never called her Nicki, by her name, at all. Calling her Nicki always felt weird. I’ve always called her Onika, too,” she admitted. “But we were never close, but we had a good bond. She was always, like, busy. She is busy and stuff like that, I will be doing my sh*t, too. But at the end of the day, I know that I still love her; she still has love for me, and I’m still proud of her.”

The New York native also remembered when people realized she was related to Nicki Minaj.

“In elementary, middle school, high school, the moment people knew who I was, it was either like they would ask me about my sister or ask me, like, just weird things that’s gonna make me feel uncomfortable,” she recalled. “At the time, I felt not only attacked, I felt vulnerable. I felt like I was by myself.”

The 18-year-old also revealed that she was into girls when she was 13 years old because she first kissed a girl in seventh grade.
