Nicki is finally speaking out about the ordeal, speaking with Hot 97's Funkmaster Flex on July 29. "I was shocked just like the rest of the world," the former American Idoljudge said. "I was cracking up with the rest of the world 'cause Khaled is a master at what he does."
Funny thing is, Khaled insisted to Us Weekly over the weekend that he was, in fact, serious about his proposal. "I want to marry her! She can take her time and think about it. At least she knows how I feel now." So what is this, a giant prank?
This weekend, while out in Beverly Hills, Nicki was photographed wearing a massive diamond ring, but she insisted that the whole thing was an elaborate publicity stunt. "It was just another way for him to kinda give the world a glimpse on the feeling of this record. Nobody in my real life took it seriously," Minaj continued. "Everybody just hit me like, 'LOL. Yo, Khaled is crazy.'"
The proposal left many questioning if Nicki and Khaled had even been dating, and the answer to that, according to Nicki, is a resounding NO!
"Khaled is my brother and Khaled was not serious with that damn proposal, ya'll," she added. "Please let it go. He was kidding. He's not attracted to me, he doesn't like me. We're brother and sister."
