Wearing approximately six tons of jewelry, Nicki Minaj stopped by Ellenfor an interview which airs today. However, the 64 rings on Minaj’s 10 fingers couldn’t distract the eagle-eyed DeGeneres from noticing that she wasn’t sporting the diamond ring that boyfriend Meek Mill gave her for her birthday.
“First of all, that’s not an engagement ring,” Minaj says. “I have two rings from this boy that likes me. And he said that that’s my second ring and if I get a third ring, that would be the engagement ring.”
First of all, Nicki Minaj has said this exact same thing before. And second of all, Nicki Minaj already has three rings from Meek Mill.
In an interview with Billboard, Minaj said she received her first ring from Meek on her 32nd birthday in 2014. Then there was a yellow diamond in April of last year. Thirdly, Meek gave Nicki the biggest ring yet for her 33rd birthday last December.

Minaj also speaks about the pressures of a public relationship and essentially declares that she’ll be, from here on out, self-identifying as single. They’re gonna need to tone this down a bit then:
“I don’t even want to say I’m in a relationship anymore because I think when people hear that, they go to, like, the mean place,” Minaj says. “For instance, Valentine’s Day passed and I didn’t put up my Valentine’s Day gift on Instagram and people said, ‘They’re not together’ … Meanwhile we were really in bed all day.”
