US rapper, Nicki Minaj confirms to her over 106million followers on Instagram that she is now Mrs Petty, after a secret wedding with boyfriend, Kenneth Petty.
Nicki Minaj taking to her social media page on Monday, posted a video to Instagram breaking the news to her fans that she is now married to Kenneth Petty, as the video shows matching Mr and Mrs mugs as well as black and white baseball caps with “Bride” and Groom” written across the front.
The “Megatron” rapper displayed her new name and the apparent date of the ceremony, Minaj captioned the post: “Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10•21•19.”
She added the bride, groom, ribbon and prayer emojis.
Minaj, 36, and Kenneth Petty, 41, reportedly started dating last year and became Instagram official in December. She had said back in August that she will be getting married in 90 days, and counting backwards, it seems she has kept to her promise.
Although fans are not in support of her relationship with Kenneth Petty, given his criminal records, especially that where he was convicted of attempted rape in 1995, and later spent seven years in prison for manslaughter. But the rapper seems not to care about all the drama, as she has gone ahead with the marriage.
Also, some fans see her relationship with Kenneth Petty as her lowing her standard, after previously dating Drake, Safaree Samuels for 12 years,before their bitter split in 2014. She then dated Meek Mill after rumored surfaced claiming that she was cheating on Safaree with the Philly rapper. They dated for about two years before parting ways. She then dated Nas for a few months.
In her response to all the critics, she has said this about her relationship, saying:
“When people say things about who I’m with, about ‘Oh my God, you lowered your standards and you should’ve been with this and this man,’” Nicki said.
“It’s so sad to me that you hoes are so readily available to sell your pussies to the highest fu**ing bidder that when people find real love, and when a person’s with a ni**a that loved or liked them before they had a dime in their fu**ing pocket.
Also contrary to popular opinion, Nicki Minaj in one of her radio interviews had confirmed that Kenneth Petty and herself had dated back in the day when both of them were teenagers, long before she got her big break as a rapper signed to Young Money/Cash Money.
“How do y’ all not understand that? How do y’ all not understand happiness vs. clout?”
“I’d rather be with a ni**a that I really know is ’bout that motherfu**in’ life and they ’bout to play with none of you fu**ing ni**as or bitches, and that loved me before I had anything, before I had a dime to my name, before my name was Nicki,” Nicki continues. “So how fu**in’ dare you?! Talk about lowering standards, excuse me?” she had said.
Since she posted the video on her Instagram page, she has been getting congratulatory messages, from fans and celebrities alike on becoming Mrs Petty.
