The 33-year-old rapper and her 28-year-old boyfriend, fellow hip-hop artist Meek Mill, sparked engagement rumors in April when she revealed a 15-carat yellow heart-shaped sparkler surrounded by a double halo of tiny diamonds. Speculation the two plan to wed mounted further this week when Minaj showed off a birthday present he gave her, a ring made up of a clear, enormous diamond set in a single halo on an eternity band.
“He and I are not engaged,” Minaj told Billboard magazine, which features her on Dec. 19 “Year in Music 2015” issue, posing topless. “But he said he would like to give me three rings before we get married. My birthday’s coming up, and he better get the new one, because he got [the first one] for my last birthday,”
