As Mstars JUST reported:
On Thursday (July 25), Nicki Minaj's YMCMB label-mate DJ Khaled professed his undying love for the "Monster" songstress on MTV News. The two rappers aren't even dating, but Khaled appears totally serious about the proposal... even flashing a $500,000 diamond engagement ring. The infamous record producer poured his heart out to the twerk beauty, exclaiming, "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." Do fans think Minaj will accept the marriage proposal? Or is the entire thing a huge publicity stunt, considering Khaled's new album "Suffering from Success" is due out sometime later this year?
In the middle of an interview with MTV News, DJ Khaled took the time to propose marriage to Minaj:
"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... Nicki Minaj, will you marry me?"
He then pulled out a 10 karat-radiant cut diamond ring in the video (valued at about $500,000, according to MTV).
Check out the full proposal here... where Khaled promises he'll love, respect, and take care of Minaj "forever."
Maybe Minaj's twerking skills in Busta Rhymes' "Twerk It" music video is what ultimately stole Khaled's heart:
Still... the shocking proposal's probably a prank. In his little "I love you" speech, Khaled mentions both rappers "suffer from success"... duh, the name of his new 2013 album!
But who knows... Khaled seems VERY serious... and fellow rappers including Rick Ross swear that he's NOT kidding!
Following the proposal (which Minaj has yet to respond to) Khaled posted on Instagram:
therealdjkhaled: "It is true!!! I hope Nicki will feel the same way and make the right decision... I spend a lot of time at the strip clubs and throw a lot of money at strippers and exotic dancers (oh baby baby...), but it is time I settle down and marry a wife. I love Nicki with all my heart... @NickiMinaj I hope you say yes... #SayYesNicki I am a genius and a winner, will you be my permanent stripper?"
therealdjkhaled: "Nicki Minaj... Will you marry me?"
therealdjkhaled: "New music... The song is called #Nicki... From my upcoming album #SufferingFromSuccess... I am stepping outside of the box for this one, as this is the first song that I rap the complete way through, with no help from other artists... 3 verses & hook all done by me... Produced by me... I worked hard to make this the best record of my career... It means so much to me, therefore I name it after the one I love... Official artwork."
Maybe a little too obsessive? Apparently DJ Khaled's efforts are even freaking Minaj out.
According to MediaTakeOut.com, the "High School" songstress is already engaged to longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels, and Khaled's proposal was just downright creepy.
She allegedly filed a restraining order against Khaled for recently stalking her in NYC... which would explain why she hasn't responded with "I Do" yet. Do fans believe Minaj would go to such extremes to keep her "Take it to the Head" collaborator FAR away?
