DJ Khaled Proposes to Nicki Minaj on MTV

Producer asks for rapper's hand in marriage with $500K ring.

Published July 26, 2013

DJ Khaled is sprung on Nicki Minaj, and he wants the world to know. 

The world-famous producer and rapper popped the question to Minaj in front of millions of MTV viewers on Thursday, complete with a $500,000 radiant-cut diamond ring.

"Nicki Minaj, I'm at MTV. I love you. I like you. I want you. I want you to be mine. I'm here at MTV because it's a worldwide network," he said via video. "Only reason I'm not telling you this face to face is because I understand that you're busy. Ima be honest with you, I wanna marry you."

Just when viewers thought Khaled's video was a prank, he pulled out the rock. "Nicki Minaj, will you marry me? We got the same symptoms, we both suffer from success. You out there touring, you're out there hustling, you're out there making music and you're out there winning. And I understand."

He continued, "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," he explained. "If you have to 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. I want to let your fans know, my fans know, my family, your family, that I want to marry you."

Nicki has yet to comment on the Suffering From Success producer's proposal, but we imagine her man Safaree Samuels has a lot to say about it.
