Nicki Minaj Says She's Not Engaged to Meek Mill: 'I Don't Even Want to Say I'm in a Relationship'
By Rachel McRady
It used to be that gigantic diamond rings equaled a trip down the aisle, but not for Nicki Minaj! The Pinkprint rapper, 33, opened up about her relationship status with Meek Mill during a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday and it’s not as simple as you’d think.
After Minaj received not one, but two enormous pieces of finger candy, the “Starships” emcee insists she’s still not engaged.
“First of all, that’s not an engagement ring,” she said. “I have two rings from this boy that likes me. That’s not my engagement ring though. He said, that’s my second ring, and he said if I get a third ring, then that’s my engagement ring.” Maybe that’s how all engagements should work?
When the curious host asked if Minaj was ready to get engaged, the GRAMMY winner wasn’t quick to answer.
“You know, I don’t know,” she admitted. “We’re still figuring each other out. In fact, I don’t even want to say I’m in a relationship anymore, because I think when people hear that they go to a mean place… Now, just going back to saying, you know what, I’m single.”
Single? Not so much. But Minaj insisted it was for the best after fresh rumors came out of the couple’s split on Valentine’s Day when she didn’t post a picture of her presents on Instagram.
“Meanwhile, we were really in bed all day on Valentine’s Day,” she teased, adding that she received three wonderful gifts from her man.
Minaj received her second ring in December, posting a photo of the bling online. In a recent interview with Nylon, she revealed that Meek Mill will occasionally call her his “fiancée,” which she quickly puts a stop to.
“Honestly, you know what, he and I are just two souls right now, just passing through the universe and I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Minaj told DeGeneres. “And I’ve just learned over the years to just let things be and come and go as they’re going to come and go.”
