DJ Khaled Proposed to Nicki Minaj on MTV... No, for Real

The rapper had a special message -- and a 10 karat ring! -- for his collaborator

Nicki Minaj has won the hearts of many, but no one expected this! In a video message revealed to the world on MTV, rapper DJ Khaled has asked for Minaj’s hand in marriage! Check out the crazy proposal below:

So why does this have the entertainment world buzzing? Well for starters, the two have not even been rumored to be romantically linked -- and there’s no record of them dating. While the two stars have collaborated on several songs together, their relationship doesn’t seem to go much further than that.

In the MTV video, Khaled says, “The only reason I’m not telling you this face-to-face is because I know that you’re busy. ... You need a man like me in your life that’s gonna take care of you and respect you,” he adds. “You gotta take your time and think about it, I understand, but I know I have to be here today to let you know how serious I am and about how serious this is to me.”

Could this be one big publicity stunt? Or did Minaj’s twerking in the new Busta Rhymes music video make Khaled fall in love? The thing is, this isn’t even the first time Minaj has had a rapper randomly propose to her. In 2010, Young Money rapper Drake proposed to his good friend and label mate in his song, "Miss Me" -- and then the rappers pranked fans when Minaj accepted his proposal on Twitter. But unlike Drake, it doesn’t look like Khaled is joking -- especially since he proposed with a 10-karat, radiant-cut diamond ring from Rafaello & Co., valued at about $500,000!
