Rapper Nicki Minaj is the newest Mrs in town after saying I do to Kenneth Petty.
Nicki has previously used the nickname hubby to describe Petty in the past and now it’s official that the ‘Super Bass’ rapper, 36, has finally married Petty, 41.
Minaj announced the exciting news on Monday (21.10.19) with a video on Instagram, showing matching “Mr. and Mrs.” mugs and black and white baseball caps that had “Bride” and “Groom” written across the front.
As reported by The Sauce, in an episode of her Queen Radio show, Minaj revealed that she had filed for a marriage license and would be married in “about 80 days.”
“We still had to pick it up and I was travelling, by the time I came back, we had to renew it again,” she explained. “From that time, you have 90 days to get married. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days.”
Even though she made it official, Minaj still had music priorities to attend to. “I have to work on my album and I have a lot to focus on that I don’t want to do the big wedding now,” she said at the time. “We’ll do a big wedding later.”
Minaj and Petty have been dating since 2018, going Instagram-official with their relationship in December of that year.
Since then, the two have been hot and heavy on social media, posing in photo after photo together. Petty even debuted a new tattoo of the rapper’s birth name, Onika, weeks after they went live with their love.
In June 2019, Petty starred with Minaj in her newest music video, for the song “Megatron.” The video featured Minaj and Petty in a hot tub as she sang, “I f— him like I miss him / He just came out of prison” — a line that fans interpreted as reference to Petty’s criminal record (He is a registered sex offender in the state of New York and served time in prison for manslaughter after being convicted in 2002).
Many fans have expressed concern over Petty’s criminal past, but Minaj doesn’t appear to care about the criticism.
