Nicki Minaj’s ‘fiancé’ drops bombshell: Nicki Minaj Meek Mill, In early April, engagement rumours ran rampant when Nicki Minaj was pictured with a massive yellow diamond heart ring on THAT finger after boyfriend Meek Mill spent an estimated $750,000 on the custom created gift.
But speculation the rapper proposed is seemingly false according to the 28-year-old star, who recently told Fader magazine: ‘I ain’t engaged.’
Meek – real name Robert Rahmeek Williams – presented his 32-year-old beloved with the 15 carat canary sparkler after only three months of dating despite never publicly confirming nor denying their relationship status.
In the latest June 30 issue of Fader, Meek spoke openly about his romance with Nicki.
‘It’s definitely real,’ he said of his feelings for the Night Is Still Young lyricist.
‘But it ain’t really time to get married yet. We’re still learning each other, feeling each other out,’ he continued.
And much like the confusion felt by fans, close friend and fellow rapper T.I. shared a conversation between him and Meek with the publication.
‘You never asked her, “Will you be my girlfriend?” But she is your girlfriend,’ he asked the rumoured fiance. ‘You may not have asked her, “Will you marry me?” But you are engaged.’
Everyone from Drake to even Meek’s own grandmother has congratulated them on the engagement allegations.
On April 15, Nicki surprised her fans and followers with a photo of what appeared to be an engagement ring on her left hand.
Diamond expert Lewis Malka estimated the dazzling diamond could be worth in the region of $750,000.
He told DailyMail.com, ‘Nicki has a fancy yellow heart-shape central diamond, set in the increasingly-popular double halo design, with white diamonds in platinum.I wouldn’t have thought this cost anything less than $750,000.’
Previously for the Spring 2015 issue of XXL magazine, Meek gushed about his love for Nicki.
‘Yeah, that’s my baby right there. S*** real,’ he shared. ‘Yeah, I tell her that. I’m like, “I don’t really hold hands, but like, I’ll hold hands with you.” She know that.’
‘Like, I don’t really do things, but certain people make you do certain little stuff and it be like, “S***, I don’t care.” They can catch me in the pictures doing anything nowadays, holding an umbrella for Nicki, you know what I’m saying?’
Adding: ‘I got the girl that I wanted, not what they wanted, you know what I’m saying? What I wanted.’
While Meek appears to be taking things slow, Nicki has adamantly made it known that she wants to build a family and a life with a special someone.
