So it turns out Nicki Minaj isn’t engaged after all.
The Anaconda star unveiled her huge diamond sparkler on her ring finger last month after dropping heavy hints across her social media that she was set to wed her new beau, hip-hop artist Meek Mill.
But Mill has just given an interview to Fader magazine saying that in fact, they’re not engaged at all. Say what!?
‘It’s definitely real,’ he told the magazine about their highly publicized relationship. ‘But it ain’t really time to get married yet. We’re still learning each other, feeling each other out.’
‘I ain’t engaged’, he confirmed when probed by his interview, rapper T.I.
So far, NIcki has remained quiet on the matter, but she did take to Instagram last night to post a cryptic wedding-related picture as her response. And it’s hilarious.
Sharing a photo of a happy couple saying ‘I do’, Nicki sassily captioned the image: ‘When you recognize you found a QUEEN… Don’t ever let her go.’ Burn. Subtle message to her man, perhaps?!
The couple were spotted in Miami earlier this month, with fans pointing out that Nicki was rocking a rather large hunk of bling on her left hand.
It seemed that the female rapper was enjoying the speculation, as she took to Twitter the following day to post a series of teaser emojis – yup, a ring, a heart AND a diamond – followed by the caption, “I’ll post it later”.
Sure enough, the pop sensation, who is currently touring, took to Instagram to share a close up snap of the jewellery in question.

You can see why you wouldn’t miss it! The heart shaped piece of ice has been estimated to cost around $500,000. Wowza.
The 32-year-old split from her long term partner Safaree Samuels back in 2014, after dating for 12 years. She was first linked to Meek Mill back in December, but at first they denied that they were together.
Meek Mill, real name Robert Rahmeek Williams, finally admitted his true feelings for Minaj in the spring issue of XXL Magazine, saying: “Yeah, that’s my baby right there.”
He went on to confess, “I’m like, ‘I don’t really hold hands, but like, I’ll hold hands with you.’ She know that.”
Neither party have confirmed the engagement, but all signs point to an upcomming celebrity wedding.
After all, with a ring like that, it would almost be rude not too…
