DJ Khaled proposes to Nicki Minaj

(PIX11) — DJ Khaled sent Nicki Minaj a wild video message proposal via MTV and a massive rock — especially wild because there are no reports of them ever dating.

In the video, he professes his love to her saying, “I want you, I want you to be mine. We have the same symptoms — we both suffer from success … you out there hustling, I understand. That’s why I feel like you need a man like me in your life.”

Khaled explains he’s proposing via MTV because he realizes Minaj is busy, and he wants all their fans and family to know.

“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.”

Khaled and Minaj are both on the same record label Young Money — they have worked on hits together such as “All I Do is Win,” “Take It to the Head” and most recently, “Twerk It.”

Minaj is reportedly dating Safaree Samuels, and has yet to publicly respond to the proposal. However, we do know she has seen it — she did retweet a link to the video on her Twitter.
