The Queen of rap has officially found her king!
Nicki Minaj married her high school sweetheart, Kenneth Petty earlier this week. The two met when they were sixteen and just rekindled their old flames less than a year ago. Although Minaj has referred to Petty as her “husband” in posts for a while now, the two just officially tied the knot.
Minaj posted a video to instagram showcasing matching Mr. and Mrs. mugs and baseball hats with “Bride” and “Groom” embellished on them. She kept the caption simple stating her new name and the date, “Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10-21-19”.
On an August episode of her Queen Radio show, Minaj shared how she obtained a marraige license and that she would be married in 80 days. She explained, “We still had to pick it up and I was traveling, by the time I came back, we had to renew it again…From that time, you have 90 days to get married. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days.”
While there was no big ceremony and party yet, Minaj says you can expect to see something after her new music releases. She told her radio show, “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…We’ll do the big wedding later.”
While we wait for the Queen’s new music we can’t wait to see pictures of the newly weds on instagram!
