Cash Money has got dramerzzz all in the streets over this bizzare DJ Khaled/Nicki Minaj love…thing. It’s Monday and I have a college degree so that’s get a rundown of the probably fake love life two people I’ve never met.
July 25th: DJ Khalad proposes to Nicki Minaj by way of a video on MTV
Yeaaaah. The video consists of him being being loquacious and looking to the side a lot while he flashes a gaudy diamond ring and tries to convince us that this isn’t a really late April Fool’s joke.
“I wanna be honest with you. I love you. I like you. I want you. I want you to be mine,” he said. His seemingly genuine sincerity is what made the whole thing that much more awkward.
DJ Khaled goes on to explain that reason he’s not proposing to Nicki face to face is because he understands that she’s busy…. CONVENIENT EXCUSE, EH? Needless to say, proposing through a video on MTV.com doesn’t exactly bleed with authenticity. We all had a good chuckle at DJ Khaled’s expense and moved on with our lives. OR SO WE THOUGHT.
July 26th: Dj Khaled posts this picture of Nicki Minaj on his Instagram
With a caption that reads: “Beautiful.” So, that’s a little weird. It really just seemed like he was trolling us–trying to keep this charade in the news for as long as possible. (Although, his album doesn’t drop until September, so I probably would have held off on this for a bit.) During this same time, Rick Ross gave a radio interview and expressed his support for the engagement. Shut up, Rick Ross.
July 27th: It is reported that Nicki Minaj filed a restraining order against DJ Khaled
Since the proposal, DJ Khaled had been running around saying that he was never going to give up on his relationship with Nicki.
Now, on a real level for a minute, that kind of “I’ll never give up on her” bullshit is predatory and not cute. In general, I feel like it’s pretty clear when something is a romantic gesture of devotion and when it’s just plain stalking. If you want to wait for her, fine, but do it from your couch.
If no other part of this story is true, I hope to Beyonce that this is true. It’s the only thing that makes you stop and consider that this might be real because who runs around filing legal restraining orders for a publicity stunt? However, can you even file a restraining order off of one incident that happened over the Internet? Lolz @me because this is probably definitely a lie.
July 27th: That evening, Nicki is seen out wearing a giant ring on her left hand
Hmmmm that’s not making sense. Although, if someone just really wanted to give me a stupid expensive diamond ring, I’d probably take it. It should be noted, however, that if DJ Khaled actually bought that half a million dollar ring like he claims he did, it would be quite a bold move for someone with a $10 million net worth. Just sayin.
This ring situation was the peak of the weirdness. But wait, OH NEVER MIND. Nicki has been seen wearing that same gaudy-ass rock since July 4th.
July 25th-27th: Drake curls up in bed with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s and the first season of Grey’s Anatomy
BECAUSE HE LIKED NICKI FIRST AND THINGS NEVER WORK OUT FOR HIM AND IT’S JUST NOT FAIR. Probably.
July 28th: DJ Khaled posts this picture to Instagarm
Bragging that “bosses” don’t get restraining orders. If nothing else, my main takeaway from all this is that everyone involved in this mess is deeply confused about how our legal system works.
July 29th: I throw up my hands
Guys, this is stupid. That is my conclusion. Is this most likely orchestrated, faux-drama that’s being fanned by both Nicki Minaj and DJ Khaled? Probs. Would it be absolutely hilarious if it turned out to have even a kernel of truth to it? Definitely. Am I thinking about this too much? YOU DECIDE.
