It comes as no surprise but DJ Khaled has stepped forward to say his marriage proposal to Nicki Minaj was nothing but a joke but rather a “dope plan” to present his latest single,”I Wanna Be With You.”
“The proposal, I was just having fun with it,” DJ Khaled says in an interview with Virginia radio station Power 92.1. “I just wanted to show love and bring some excitement for my fans to connect with the record…I just wanted to tap into the emotion of the record.”
“I Wanna Be With You” the new single features Nicki Minaj, Future and Rick Ross.
“I was joking,” he says. “I was having fun. We be so busy making these big hits, I wanted to come with a dope plan to present the next mass record.”
Even though the proposal was fake, the ring sure was not. Will he be getting rid of it? Don’t bet on it.
“What’s that saying?” DJ Khaled says of the ring which is stated to be worth $500,000. “‘Women’s best friends is diamonds?’ I’m just gonna add that diamond to one of my pinky rings or one of my necklaces. I love diamonds too.”
