Nicki Minaj’s ring picture sparks rumors she and Meek Mill are engaged

Is Nicki Minaj engaged to fellow rapper Meek Mill? If not, she's using all of her social media and emoji power to mess with people's heads.

Minaj, 32, posted the photo below on Wednesday afternoon, captioning the shot (of a diamond-encrusted ring anchored by what appears to be a massive yellow diamond in the shape of a heart) simply with symbols for happiness, love and diamonds. Only hours before, she'd tweeted diamond, diamond ring and heart emojis with the tease "I"ll post it later."

She was also wearing a ring on that finger in a Tuesday Instagram post of herself walking in Miami with Mill, 27. "Those Miami nights," she wrote.

Minaj and longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels broke up toward the end of 2014 after 12 years together.

In December, Mill got out of prison, where he'd been since July for violating probation on a 2009 drug and gun conviction. Since then, the two have been getting plenty cozy.

He'll join the "Anaconda" singer on the North American leg of her Pinkprint tour this summer.
