The two Cash Money Records stars had hip-hop fans buzzing on Thursday, July 25, after Khaled appeared on MTV in an awkward video clip professing his “love” for Nicki. Khaled even asked the voluptuous female rapper to marry him, presenting a 10-karat diamond ring from Rafaello & Co. But no one seemed to take the Miami-based superstar’s proposal too seriously.
At least, it didn’t seem like anyone was taking him seriously.
But according to HipHop365, Nicki didn’t think the stunt was sweet or cute or funny.
The Young Money first lady has allegedly responded to Khaled’s affections by filing a restraining order in her home state of New York. According to FOX News, this is just the latest in a series of incidents where Khaled decided to show his love for Nicki. The DJ reportedly sent her flowers and various packages before. And he has unexpectedly shown up at her shows all across the country, according to reports.
A day after his proposal stunt, Khaled posted a screenshot of Nicki from his music video for “Take It To the Head” along with the caption “Beautiful.”
There is some skepticism about the restraining order claim, however. Some outlets are wondering if the whole thing is a YMCMB-concocted publicity stunt. Back in 2010, Minaj and fellow label star Drake engaged in a playful hoax where they pretended to be marrying each other.
Nicki Minaj hasn’t publicly spoken about DJ Khaled or the proposal video.
