Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill are not engaged. That’s right, the giant diamond Meek gave Nicki is not an engagement ring, and the couple is not getting married. In April, rumors started spreading about wedding bell plans between Nicki and Meek, after Nicki posted a photo of the “massive rock” on Instagram.
The Twitterverse went into a frenzy over the ring.

The rumors rolled on for awhile, with fans wild to spot Minaj and her ring out with fiance Mill. At the time, a source told E! News that it was true love for Nicki and Meek.
“Both Meek and Nicki have been spending amazing quality time together lately and have gotten extremely close these past few months. It may seem like it all is happening very quickly but Nicki and Meek are in this 100. They truly love each other.”
The weekend after the ring first appeared, Nicki was at Coachella where her friend Drake was performing. Drake brought Nicki on stage to congratulate her, and although he didn’t say why, the audience was sure Drake was congratulating Nicki on her engagement to Meek.
“We family forever. Congratulations and all that, I just want to give you a hug.”
Minaj’s ring was there for everyone to see. In fact, at 15 carats and $500,000, it was hard to miss!
But all is not as it appears. Nicki and Meek are together all the time, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be husband and wife any time soon. Meek Mill recently did an interview with Will Stephenson for The Fader. Will and Meek went out for seafood and ran into fellow rapper T.I., who immediately began talking about his engagement to Nicki.
“I ain’t engaged,” Meek says sheepishly, but T.I. isn’t having any of it.
Later, Mill went further in his explanations
“It’s definitely real, but it ain’t really time to get married yet. We’re still learning each other, feeling each other out.”
That may be the simple truth of the matter, but Meek’s grandmother still thinks they’re engaged! She didn’t see it on Twitter or Instagram, but when the news was covered on television, Meek’s grandmother knew it was true.
“Whatever she sees on TV, she believes.”
It’s not just grandma who wants to see Nicki and Meek make it work long term.
Meek and Nicki so corny but I love how they live for each other 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
