Nicki Minaj says she saw the funny side of the stunt

Nicki Minaj has rejected DJ Khaled's proposal - but said she sees the funny side.

The rapper asked Nicki to marry him during an interview on MTV, despite the fact they aren't even dating and she wasn't present at the time. The American Idol judge sparked rumours she had accepted when she was pictured wearing the 10-carat diamond ring in public.

But Nicki told US radio station Hot 97's presenter Funkmaster Flex: "I was shocked just like the rest of the world.

"I was cracking up laughing with the rest of the world 'cause Khaled is a master at what he does....

"Khaled is my brother and Khaled was not serious with that damn proposal, ya'll. Please let it go. He was kidding.

"He's not attracted to me, he doesn't like me. We're brother and sister."

DJ Khaled produced the 500,000 dollar engagement ring to the cameras during an interview on MTV.

He declared: "Nicki Minaj, I'm going to be honest with you; I love you... I like you, I want you, I want you to be mine. Nicki Minaj, will you marry me?

"If 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 how serious this is to me."
