Is Nicki Minaj Engaged?

Nicki Minaj's fanbase is buzzing, and the Barbz all have one question: Is Nicki Minaj engaged? The rapper sparked rumors earlier this week after fans noticed the star was flaunting some significant bling on a certain finger in a recent Instagram post.

On November 26, Minaj posted two photos with an as-yet-unidentified "mystery man." In the second snap, the rapper shows off a massive sparkler on her left ring finger.

Naturally, fans were quick to pick up on the star's well-placed bling, and the post was soon flooded with a flurry of speculations about Minaj's massive sparkler.

"The ring what's up with the ring? What's going on?" asked one fan. "Ain’t that the engagement finger though...." speculated another, while yet another fan cut to the chase, commenting, "So you engaged now?"

While Nicki has yet to address any of the engagement speculations, the comments have continued to blow up. While all eyes were on the ring finger bling, fans also couldn't help but wonder about the mystery man posing alongside the star. 

"Who is this man Nick?" asked a fan. "Who is this new gentelman [sic] caller your [sic] about to make famous because he's blessed to be in such exclusive photos with you?" inquired another. 

While some fans speculate the unnamed mystery man may be Minaj's new beau — "Is that bae Nicki?" asked one commenter — others assume the potential engagement ring has other origins.

"Sis let me see that ring finger real quick? Did Lewie give that to you?" asked a fan, referencing the recent romance rumors linking Minaj to Formula One race car driver Lewis Hamilton that surfaced earlier this fall. The two first sparked dating rumors back in September when they were caught cozying up together during New York Fashion Week, and Minaj later posted snaps of the pair on a getaway in Dubai.

Meanwhile, other fans noticed a resemblance between the rapper's new rock and the diamond sparkler she wore while dating Meek Mill.

Indeed, this is far from the star's first brush with engagement rumors. Minaj and Meek Mill were the frequent subject of engagement speculations throughout their two-year relationship, which ended in 2017. 

Back in 2015, Minaj seemed to confirm an early round of Meek Mill engagement rumors in an Instagram post showing off a yellow heart-shaped diamond ring.

However, by 2016, Nicki, who had received yet another rock from Mill, was denying engagement rumors. "He said that my third ring would be my engagement ring. But sometimes he calls me his fiancée, and I'm always trying to stop him, like, 'Nope! I ain't got that third ring yet!'" Minaj told Nylon in April 2016. 

Obviously Nicki Minaj deserves at least three engagement rings. So even if the rapper's latest bling is a gift from a new bae, Minaj's potential new suitor still has at least two more rings to go.
