Earlier last week DJ Khaled made a very bold move and decided to propose to label-mate Nicki Minaj on national TV . . . or so we thought. Days later DJ Khaled deemed it was all just a “joke.” Despite the fact that DJ Khaled pulled out a gorgeous 10-karat diamond sparkler valued at about $500,000 it was no way Nicki Minaj would have said yes to this man.
Sitting in front of cameras at the MTV studios, DJ Khaled poured his heart out to Nicki.
I’m gonna be honest, I love you, I like you. I want you, I want you to be mine. I’m at MTV because it’s a worldwide network and I’m not telling you this face to face because I understand that you are busy. I’m [gonna] be honest with you, I wanna marry you. Nicki Minaj, will you marry me?
Khaled also claims that he originally wanted to propose Nicki last year during the music video shoot for his song “Take It to the Head” but things have gotten far better for him since then and he was able to prepare for this day.
We got the same symptons. We both suffer from success (hence his forthcoming album title). You’re out there touring. You’re out there hustling. You’re out there making music. And you’re out there WINNING. I understand. That’s why I feel like you need a man like me in your life that’s gonna take care of you and respect you.
[If] you gotta take your time and think about it, I overstand, but I know I have to be here today to let you know how serious I am and how serious this is to me.
Days later DJ Khaled put the idea of marriage to rest and told everyone it was just a joke. Ironically, Khaled’s album Suffering From Success drops September 24th. In a recent interview with Richmond radio host TT Torrez, DJ Khaled admitted he made the proposal video in an effort to promote his new record “I Wanna Be With You” featuring Nicki Minaj, Future, and Rick Ross.
We be so busy making these big hits, I wanted to come with a dope plan to present the next smash record. What’s the saying? ‘Women’s best friends is diamonds?’ I’m just gonna add that diamond to one of my pinky rings or one of my necklaces, you know what I’m saying? You know, I love diamonds too.
SMH ! Watch the proposal HERE
