DJ Khaled Proposes To Nicki Minaj
DJ Khaled proposed to fellow rap star Nicki Minaj on Thursday on MTV, and even had a ring on hand.
Khaled, who isn’t known to be dating Minaj, made a heartfelt appeal to the “Right Thru Me” singer to take his hand in marriage. “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.
“We got the same symptoms, we’re both suffering from success,” he continued, referencing their hectic schedules. “[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."
His serious proposal of marriage included a serious rock – a 10-karat radiant diamond valued around $500,000, according to MTV. Opening up the ring’s box, he peered sincerely into the camera and asked, “Nicki Minaj, will you marry me?"
Khaled and Minaj are both on the YMCMB label aka Young Money Entertainment & Cash Money Records aka Young Money Cash Money Billionaires. The label, founded by Lil Wayne, also includes Drake, Lil Twist and Mack Maine. Both Minaj and Khaled are featured on Busta Rhymes “Twerk It” single, and recently were together for the music video shoot.
In the past, Minaj has been linked to both Lil Wayne and Drake. Though she’s never been rumored to have a relationship with Khaled, she’s certainly all over him in the “Twerk It” video. She hasn’t publicly commented on the proposal, but did retweet a link to the video on her Twitter page.
