Meek Mill plants a kiss on Nicki MinajInstagram

Nicki Minaj sent the internet into meltdown after appearing to announce her engagement to Meek Mill after just two months of dating, but it looks like the Young Money rapper was simply baiting fans and having fun with the media.

The Super Bass hitmaker's mother Carol Maraj aka the closest person to her, has confirmed that her daughter is not preparing to walk down the aisle.

Speaking to celebrity news site Bossip.com at the Dress for Success Worldwide gala in Manhattan, where she was being honoured for her work with victims domestic violence, she said: "I talk to my daughter everyday, and she said she was not engaged."

Minaj first sparked rumours that she is set to tie the knot when she uploaded a photo of her and her new beau captioned "Miami Nights" and wrote on social media: "I wish every night could feel like last night."

After eagle-eyes fans noticed the ring on her finger, the Pinkprint hitmaker sent her Barbs into a frenzy by posting a diamond ring emotion on Twitter, teasing "I'll post it later" before finally unveiling a heart-shaped rock on her wedding finger.

Minaj went public with the Maybach Music star in February by sharing a snap of her partner planting a kiss on her cheek. Although there was no caption, she looked very pleased with the PDA.

In 2014, Minaj split from longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels after 12 years of dating. After their messy break-up, Samuels has had all his tattoos of Minaj either erased or covered up with new ink. Minaj told her Twitter followers she was "single and ready to mingle".

During a recent interview on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, Samuels hinted that Minaj preferred the single life.

"If that's who she decides to move on with, it is what it is," he said. "I'm not mad, I'm not bitter because if I wanted to make it work, I could've made it work."
