LOS ANGELES, July 30 (UPI) -- U.S. hip-hop artist Nicki Minaj says DJ Khaled was "just kidding" when he announced on MTV last week he wanted to marry her.
"I want to be honest with you. I love you. I like you. I want you to be mine. I'm here at MTV because it's a worldwide network and the only reason why I'm not telling you face-to-face is 'cause I understand that you're busy," the Miami radio host said in his high-profile proposal.
Minaj fueled rumors that she accepted his offer of marriage by not immediately addressing the speculation, then wearing a sparkly ring on her left hand during the weekend.
However, she insisted Monday Khaled's offer of marriage was all a joke.
"I was shocked just like the rest of the world and I was cracking up laughing with the rest of the world 'cause Khaled is a master at what he does," MTV.com quoted Minaj as saying.
"Nobody in my real life took it seriously. Everybody just hit me like: 'LOL. Yo, Khaled is crazy.' Khaled is my brother and Khaled was not serious with that damn proposal, ya'll," she said. "Please let it go. He was kidding. He's not attracted to me. He doesn't like me. We're brother and sister."
