Nicki Minaj is ‘Gearing Up’ for Marriage
Yesterday, Nicki Minaj released a new episode of Queen Radio—something she hasn’t done in a while—and casually revealed that she and her BF Kenneth Petty are gearing up to get married. She said on the show, ‘We did get our marriage license…I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness. It was so hard to get to a happy place. Now that I’m there, I don’t want to compromise that for anyone or anything.’
And while it’s great that Nicki has found her happiness and all, can we, uh, talk about Kenneth? As those of us dedicated to celeb news might already know, he’s an, er, controversial figure as a registered sex offender with at least two convictions to his name.
Last December, Nicki helped clarify the sex offender thing, by saying that he was 15 and the woman involved was 16, and the two of them were in a relationship at the time.
However, he went to prison for almost four years, and then, several years later, he was convicted of first-degree manslaughter, for which he served seven. And if you’re wondering how these two met, well, Nicki and Kenneth dated when they were younger and (obviously) reconnected.
According to Nicki’s Insta, they have officially been dating since December, however, Kenneth got a pretty huge neck tattoo dedicated to Nicki that same month, which seems to suggest that they were dating way before that, but kept their relationship private. (And here I’m just going off of the fact that if I was going to get a neck tattoo for a partner I would probably want to have been dating them for a while, right?).
