[Blind Gossip] This singer is showing off a huge new ring. While she has not confirmed her engagement, she has not denied it either.
A close friend of hers explains what is going on in her relationship. “[Her Ex] didn’t like the fact that she worked all the time. He kept telling her that she needed to chill and take vacations. [Her New Boyfriend] lets her work as much as she wants to. That is such a different attitude to her that she believes that’s what people in love do.”
So… are they engaged or not?
“When she broke up with [Ex], she told all her friends [about the breakup] a week before it was public. She hasn’t said boo to us about getting engaged to [New Boyfriend]. I think she’s just playing with the whole ring thing. She just loves the attention.”
Her Ex Boyfriend:
Her Current Boyfriend:
Singer: Nicki Minaj
Her Ex Boyfriend: Safaree Samuels
Her Current Boyfriend: Meek Mill
When Nicki Minaj started flashing a HUGE heart-shaped diamond ring in April of 2015, the natural assumption was that she was engaged to her new boyfriend Meek Mill.
Like Beyonce and her annual pregancy trick (see Teasing Time) Nicki Minaj loves for you to think she’s engaged!
She wasn’t. She let the speculation run for a month before she admitting that she was not engaged to Meek Mill.
By the way, we don’t know if Meek Mill bought her the ring, if she bought it for herself, or if it was on loan from a jewelry company (Yes, they do that in Hollywood in return for promoting their wares).
A few months later, Nicki Minaj sported a new, square-cut diamond ring on her ring finger. Surely, THIS time, she was engaged!
Nah. Same stunt, different day.
Months later, she finally admitted, “He and I are not engaged. But he said he would like to give me three rings before we get married.”
So the first couple of rings were for “fake engagements” and the next one could be for a real engagement… or another fake one. Whatever. Like her friend said, “She just loves the attention.”
The funniest headline of that time? “Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill Not Engaged, Look to Beyonce and Jay Z for Relationship Advice.”
Ha ha ha! Fakers looking to other fakers for advice.
More interesting than her fake engagements with Meek Mill, though, is Minaj’s real court case with her ex-boyfriend, Samuel Safaree! Yes, she was supposedly engaged to him, too.
From USA Today:
Nicki Minaj reveals lawsuit from ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels
As if Nicki Minaj’s relationship with her current boyfriend Meek Mill hasn’t been dramatic enough, she’s now being sued by her ex.
Minaj revealed in a late-night tweetstorm Tuesday that her ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels filed a lawsuit against her, claiming he was physically and emotionally abused during their relationship.
“LEAVE US ALONE!!!!!! PLEASE!!!” she tweeted, claiming that she caught Samuels stealing from her but declined to prosecute, and that Meek Mill also contacted her ex asking him to stop.
While Minaj doesn’t specifically name Samuels as the “poor excuse for a man” in her tweets, there’s little doubt who she’s referring to — the two exes have publicly sparred in the past, dragging one another in interviews and on social media.
Last year, reports emerged claiming Samuels was readying a lawsuit against Minaj, saying he planned to request a multi-million payout for his involvement in three of her albums — Pink Friday, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded and The Pinkprint — and several of her singles.
Drama, drama, drama! Since Nicki is such an attention-seeker and stunt artist, it’s difficult to know who is telling the truth. We’ll wait and see what happens with the law suit.
Congrats to Lisako for being first with the correct response!
