The 37-year-old producer released a video on MTV, apparently proposing to the "Starships" singer.
“I want to be honest with you. I love you. I like you. I want you. I want you to be mine,” he said.
“The only reason I’m not telling you this face to face is because I know that you’re busy...You need a man like me in your life that’s gonna take care of you and respect you,” he said. “You gotta take your time and think about it, I understand... but I know I have to be here today to let you know how serious I am and about how serious this is to me.”
“I want to let your fans know, my fans know, my family, your family, that I wanna marry you. I been working hard to get this ring... Nicki Minaj... will you marry me?”
Khaled then produced a 10-karat Rafaello & Co. ring worth around $500,000.
There haven't been any reports of Minaj and Khaled dating, and while Minaj hasn't responded to the proposal -- or is it a publicity stunt? -- she has tweeted a link to the video.
