Did they already tie the knot? Nicki Minaj ignited marriage rumors while opening up about her controversial relationship with Kenneth Petty on the new episode of her Beats1 show Queen Radio on Apple Music. The rapper nonchalantly called Kenneth her “husband” and fans want answers!
“Every night when I get out of the shower, my husband takes this really good lotion that we just bought, and he massages my feet, and rubs them, and he rubs each toe individually, and the heel, and the ball of my foot, and he does it all,” the rapper, 36, admitted. She may just be calling Kenneth her “husband,” but that didn’t stop fans from wondering if they secretly got married.
It looks like sparks are still flying between the lovebirds as Nicki recently posted a photo with her beau in France. “Bae out in Paris,” she captioned the snap with Kenneth, 40. The rapper made her romance Instagram official in December, after they celebrated her 36th birthday in Turks and Caicos.
Since then, Nicki and Kenneth’s relationship has continued to heat up. Back in January, Nicki posted a video of herself and Kenneth getting cozy in a hot tub. Then, on the February 2 episode of Queen Radio, she revealed that she’s known her beau for quite some time. “I’ve known [Kenneth] since I was 14,” Nicki said. “There’s a different level of passion and friendship with him.”
Nicki has faced some backlash for being with Kenneth due to his past. According to Radar Online, he was arrested on September 16, 1994, by the New York City Police Department Sex Offender Unit for having “sexual intercourse” with a 16-year-old female. Kenneth was allegedly about 16 years old at the time. In April 1995, he was convicted of attempted rape in the first degree for the incident. Despite his legal troubles, it looks like Nicki is happy with him and their relationship.
