Rapper Rick Ross and 22-year-old girlfriend Lira Mercer (@Lira_Galore) are engaged. She revealed on Thursday, Sept. 17. Rick Ross, 39 that the answer is “YES!” After she was presented with a massive 11-carat diamond ring worth a whopping $350,000. Although the two may have only been together for a few months, Ross reportedly took Lira to Rafaello & Co. jewelry store in New York City, where he presented her with the emerald-cut diamond ring, along with a wedding band crafted from six-carat diamonds. Following the proposal, the newly engaged couple reportedly celebrated with a chicken satay dinner at Red Stixs restaurant.


The exciting news comes just a couple months after Rick’s string of run-ins with the law. Lira was “by his [Rick’s] side” throughout his arrests, perhaps that’s why he was so eager to lock things down. Trouble brewed for Ross this year when the “Super High” rapper was pulled over in Fayette County, Georgia on June 10 for a window tint violation. However, when Rick was asked to step out of his car, police claimed he stunk like weed, so they charged him with a misdemeanor marijuana charge. Rick was the apprehended again in Georgia on June 24, and charged with counts of kidnapping, aggravated battery and aggravated assault. His bodyguard was also arrested and named as a suspect in the case. The pair allegedly got into a fight with the man working on Rick’s home. Cops arrived at the rapper’s residence in the early morning and arrested him for an incident in which he allegedly “pistol-whipped” a man working on his home earlier that month. Ross’ future wife posted about her sparkling new ring via Snapchat, and followed up with several stills of the sparkler on Instagram the next morning.
