With a last name like Petty, of course Nicki Minaj locked down her boyfriend, Kenneth Petty. For the iconography at least! The rapper has been talking about settling down for months (her Twitter name is already Mrs. Petty), and it looks like they went and made it official. She posted a video on Instagram showing off Mr. and Mrs. mugs with bride and groom baseball caps. The caption laid it all out: “Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10•21•19” In the comments, Christina Aguilera, Naomi Campbell, La La Anthony, and more congratulated her.
Minaj obtained a marriage license back in June, according to TMZ, but told Queen Radio listeners in August that she was getting it renewed and was set to be married in about two months. Looks like that fairy tale came true. She and her new husband were young loves who reunited after years apart. In between, Minaj became a world-famous rapper and Petty was convicted for manslaughter and attempted rape. Now that they’re together, Minaj is only looking toward the future. “But go awf, internet, y’all can’t run my life,” she wrote in an Instagram comment defending her relationship last December. “Y’all can’t even run y’all own life.”
We would be curious about whatever love songs Minaj is cooking up, but she says she’s retiring from music for a while to start a family. A bunch of little Pettys running around? But the Barbz are right there.
