Nicki Minaj sat down with Ellen DeGeneres for an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing today. Ellen wasted no time getting Nicki to discuss her love life immediately asking her where her engagement ring was. The 33-year-old rapper quickly shot down the rumors clearing up that the ring in question, given to her by her beau Meek Mill was not an engagement ring.
“I have two rings from this boy that likes me … and he said that that’s my second ring and that if I get a third ring that that would be the engagement ring.”
Nicki then went on to divulge that she might be retorting back to saying she’s single like she did in the past. She credits the negativity and the assumptions people make and throw their way as the reasoning.
“I don’t even want to say I’m in a relationship anymore. I think when people hear that they go to, like, the mean place. I used to say, ‘I’m not in a relationship’ even though I was in a 12-year relationship. And then now I feel like just going back to that and saying, ‘you know what? I’m single.’ “
Of course as soon as the world got word that Nicki said she was “single” social media went straight for Meek Mill’s mentions. Nicki of course wasn’t here for any of it and took to Instagram to set everyone straight.
As to whether or not wedding bells are in the near future for her and Meek the verdict is still out.
“I don’t know. We’re still figuring each other out.”
