Is Nicki Minaj set to marry record producer DJ Khaled? Reports suggest that may be the case, after the 30-year-old female rapper was spotted wearing a diamond on her ring finger over the weekend.
DJ Khaled, who Minaj most recently worked with for rapper Busta Rhymes’ song, “Twerk,” recorded a video message for the curvy artist last week, and it aired during “MTV News.” The 37-year-old said, in part, "Nicki Minaj, I’m at MTV, I’m going to be honest with you; I love you. I like you, I want you, I want you to be mine," he said in the video. "Only reason I'm not telling you this face to face is because I understand that you're busy.
I feel like you need a man like me in your life … we got the same symptoms, we’re both suffering from success. [If] you gotta take your time and think about it, I understand, but I know I have to be here today to let you know how serious I am and how serious this is to me." He then asked for her hand in marriage, and showed off a reportedly $500,000 massive 10-carat diamond ring.
While it was perceived to initially be a publicity stunt, DJ Khaled later stated that he is quite serious about the proposal, though it has been rumored that Minaj is dating her hypeman, Safaree Samuels.
While Minaj never publicly responded, on Saturday she showed off a huge ring after eating at Crustation Restaurant in Beverly Hills. She also wore a shirt that read, “Love Dirty.” Later, she posted a picture of herself wearing the shirt, showing off only the part that read “love” along with the caption, “It’s all u need [sic].”
