Nicki Minaj is officially Mrs. Petty.
The Trinidadian rapper confirmed via her Instagram page that she and her boo Kenneth Petty have officially tied the knot in a secret wedding. Nicki Minaj shared a short video clip showcasing some souvenirs like caps and cups with Mr. Petty and Mrs. Petty written on them. While she didn’t share any additional details about her wedding, she said enough to confirm that she is officially off the market. “Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10•21•19,” she wrote.
Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty dated when they were teenagers growing up in New York before she became a household name as one of the greatest female rappers to ever take up the mic. Nicky dated Safaree Samuels for 12 years before they called it quits in 2014 over allegations that she cheated on him with Meek Mill. She then dated Meek Mill for two years before they too called it quits for unknown reasons. Between 2016 and 2018, she has been linked to Nas and Race Car driver Lewis Hamilton.
Late last year, Nicki Minaj rekindled her relationship with her childhood sweetheart, Kenneth “Zoo” Petty. She received a lot of criticisms from her fans over their relationship, mostly because of Petty’s history of serving time behind bars for various crimes, including alleged rape and murder.
Nicki Minaj pushed back against the criticisms, saying that her happiness is all that matters to her and that Petty makes her happy. She also revealed that she would be getting married before dropping off her next album, which is slated for release sometime this fall. There are some folks who are saying that Nicki rushed to get married in response to her ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels getting married to Erica Mena. The two Love and Hip Hop stars tied the knot a few weeks ago, and Mena is currently pregnant with the couple’s first child.
