Love is in the air over at the Maybach Music Group camp. With Meek Mill now booed up with Nicki Minaj, the MMG head honcho, Rick Ross, is following suit as he is engaged to stripper-turned-actress Lira Mercer.
After serving some time in jail, it looks like Ross is ready to settle down. Mercer, who goes by Lira Galore on social media, hails from Texas and was formerly linked to Drake. According to Miss Info, she quietly announced the big news on Snapchat, posting a photo of her huge engagement ring with the caption "YES!" and "When it's real, you just know."
It seems as Mercer's had her eye on the rapper for a while as she tweeted back in 2012 that she wanted to marry the MMG boss.
