Are Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill Engaged?
by Hilary Braaksma
She was pretty upfront about her feelings.
On a recent Ellen appearance, Ellen asked Nicki about her engagement ring from rapper-boyfriend Meek Mill, and Nicki was quick to shut down the rumors.
“First of all, it’s not an engagement ring,” Nicki said. “I have two rings from this boy who likes me.”
Minaj went on to explain that the rings are just tokens of affection from Meek, and nothing more. She did say, however, that if she gets a third ring “that will be [the] engagement ring.”
When Ellen asked Nicki how she felt about the prospect of getting engaged, Nicki was pretty upfront in saying that she’s not even comfortable talking about her relationships publicly anymore, specifically because they end up going to a “mean” place. Nicki talked about the rumors that flew on Valentine’s Day when she didn’t post any pictures of her gifts from Meek—people were saying that the couple didn’t spend the romantic holiday together, and that Nicki had been crying all day. The reality was that the two spent the entire day in bed together, enjoying their privacy.
“It just made me realize that no matter what, no matter how great your life is, you can’t even impress people. You just have to do you and make yourself happy, and forget about trying to get everyone’s approval,” Nicki said. “It’s better just to keep those things sacred. So now I don’t really care to say, ‘I’m in a relationship,’ or ‘I’m engaged,’ or whatever.”
At this point, it sounds like even if Nicki and Meek did get engaged, we wouldn’t be the first to know. And can you really blame them?
