Is Nicki Minaj engaged to DJ Khaled? The rapper was spotted with a diamond ring on her finger over the weekend, leaving some to speculate that she said yes to the producer's bizarre marriage proposal.
Minaj wore a large diamond ring while leaving a restaurant in Beverly Hills. The rock was similar to the one DJ Khaled offered during his proposal, though Minaj's fans reportedly believe she has been wearing the ring for months.
Rumors of Nicki Minaj's possible engagement began when DJ Khaled filmed a video for MTV News. In the clip, the producer professed his love for the "Twerk It" rapper and asked for her hand in marriage.
"Imma be honest with you," he said. "I want to marry you. I'm here today at MTV. Nicki Minaj, will you marry me?"
Throughout the video, DJ Khaled held a ring box in his hand. At the end, he opened it to reveal a $500,000 rock from Rafaello & Co.
"I've been working hard to get this ring," he said. "I would have proposed to you last year. ... But, you know, things got better for me. I prepared for this day, so I went and got this ring."

Many immediately assumed that Nicki Minaj would not get engaged anytime soon. After all, the video seemed like an obvious publicity stunt. But DJ Khaled insisted that the marriage offer was legit.
"I want to marry her!" he said after the video went viral. "I was serious. She can take her time and think about it. At least she knows how I feel now."
Minaj has not publicly responded to this marriage proposal, but one report indicates that she was not amused. According to MediaTakeout, the rapper filed a restraining order against DJ Khaled after he made this video. The site also claims that Minaj is already engaged to her boyfriend, Safaree Samuels, which would explain the ring on her finger. MTO does not exactly have the best reputation, however, so take this rumor with a grain of salt.
As of now, there is no evidence that Nicki Minaj is actually engaged to DJ Khaled. But be sure to stay tuned for the latest updates.
