"Khaled is my brother," rapper said.

Khaled, who's reportedly still married to a woman credited as his "spiritual advisor," made a video plea for the YMCMB Barbie through MTV last week. Turns out it was all a "joke" (aka publicity stunt) to promote his new single, "I Wanna Be With You," featuring Minaj.
Proposing was Khaled's way of raising anticipation for the track off his upcoming Suffering From Success release.
Judging by his words, the proof was always there. "We got the same symptoms, we both suffering from success," Khaled said in the video accompanied by a $500,000 10-carat engagement ring.
Pretty much everybody assumed the Miami dweller was being facetious. "Nobody in my real life took it seriously," Minaj told Funkmaster Flex Monday (July 29). "Everybody just hit me like, 'LOL. Yo, Khaled is crazy.'"
The Queens native sees Khaled as a "brother" and nothing romantic. "Khaled was not serious with that damn proposal ya'll," she added." Please let it go. He was kidding. He's not attracted to me. He doesn't like me. We're brother and sister."
Being a female rapper in a male-dominated industry has blurred the lines between Minaj and her platonic list of "brothers" before. Drake was first to pop the question three years ago, once in song, and again on Twitter.
Minaj happily accepted, but the "Twitter marriage" ended a day later.
