Nicki Minaj Responds to DJ Khaled’s Proposal

Last week the the internet went nuts after DJ Khaled proposed to Nicki Minaj via MTV because they both were “suffering from symptoms of success.” On Monday (July 30), clarity on the purpose of his impromptu proposal were made once he dropped his newest song, “I Wanna Be With You”, pushing her to break her silence on the matter.

“I was shocked just like the rest of the world and I was cracking up laughing with the rest of the world ’cause Khaled is a master at what he does,” Minaj said. While she hasn’t talked to Kiss The Ring rapper about the prank yet, the Minajesty creator made it clear that they would not be taking a walk down the aisle anytime soon. “Nobody in my real life took it seriously. Everybody just hit me like, ‘lol, yo, Khaled is crazy.’ Khaled is my brother and Khaled was not serious with that damn proposal, ya’ll,” she said. “Please let it go. He was kidding. He’s not attracted to me, he doesn’t like me. We’re brother and sister.”

All has been blown off as a promotional stunt to draw people into the duo’s new track which also features Rick Ross and Future. —Kandice L. Lawson
