DJ KHALED: Proposes to Nicki
DJ Khaled might say "no new friends," but he apparently doesn't feel the same way about spouses. He just released a video in which he, with a straight face, proposes to YMCMB affiliate Nicki Minaj.
He says in the clip -- apparently recorded at MTV's studios -- “I want to be honest with you. I love you. I like you. I want you. I want you to be mine. 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. 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."
Khaled then reveals a 10-karat radiant-cut ring, which MTV News has estimated is worth a half-million bucks.
Though there haven't been any reports suggesting that Khaled and Minaj are even dating, she did twerk on him in the video for Busta Rhymes' new single, "Twerk It."
