It was all a prank! Nicki Minaj and Drake took to Twitter to announce a sudden marriage this past Friday (August 27).
Drake raised eyebrows when he rhymed, "I love Nicki Minaj, I told her I'd admit it/I hope one day we get married just to say we f*cking did it." While Nicki has previously downplayed Drake's crush, she initiated the prank on Twitter.
“U scurred? @drakkardnoir u ready to make the announcement or wha?” Nicki Minaj tweeted. Drizzy, who rhymes about wanting to marry Nicki on his latest single, "Miss Me," replied, "Baby I am never scared. PROUD is more the word I would use. Please refer to @nickiminaj as Mrs. Aubrey Drake Graham and dont stare at her too long. She’s finally mine.” Nicki promptly confirmed, “Yes, its true. Drake and I tied the knot.”
The next day, Nicki tweeted, "Dear Barbz, My husband Drake and I have decided to have our marriage annulled. We'll maintain joint custody. Luv, HB."
While Drake and Nicki's followers immediately caught on to the prank, news of their supposed union quickly spread all over the internet. The story got enough traction that Drake's rep felt the need to publicly deny the rumor.
