Nicki Minaj Says DJ Khaled’s Proposal Was a Joke
When we told you about DJ Khaled's video proposal to Nicki Minaj last week, we acknowledged the possibility that it was all just a goof. Turns out that was the case.
Minaj called into Funkmaster Flex's radio show on New York's Hot 97 on Monday night to spill the beans that Khaled's viral video proposal, including a 10-carat engagement ring, was all just a joke.
"I was shocked just like the rest of the world, and I was cracking up laughing with the rest of the world, 'cause Khaled is a master as what he does," she said. "He's a DJ, hypeman, entrepreneur, all of those wrapped in one."
Minaj went on to reveal that the whole thing was a publicity stunt to hype up his forthcoming album Suffering From Success and the single "I Wanna Be With You," which features Minaj, Future and Rick Ross. "It was just another way for him to kinda give the world a glimpse on the feeling of this record," she said.
Finally, Minaj stomped on any possibility that there was romance between the two, saying, "Khaled is my brother and Khaled was not serious with that damn proposal, y'all. Please let it go. He was kidding. He's not attracted to me; he doesn't like me. We're brother and sister."
While Minaj dismissed it all on Monday, over the weekend Khaled was keeping the ruse alive when he called into DJ Felli Fel's show on Los Angeles' Power 106. "She might say yeah tonight or tomorrow, she might say yeah next year," he said. "What am I gonna do, give up? Never. I ain't never give up on nothing I do."
But after Minaj's interview he seemed to offer his seal of approval, tweeting, "Salute @NICKIMINAJ!!! …Bringing the excitement back to the game!"
