During the latest episode of her Apple Music show Queen Radio, Nicki Minaj called her boyfriend Kenneth Petty her husband, and it immediately sent the marriage rumors into overdrive. Now, fans want to know if the Anaconda rapper really did secretly tie the knot.
“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,” she said. “It’s just so sexy.”
Insiders tell TMZ that even though Minaj and Petty are very much in love, and she called him her husband, the couple has not gotten married.
According to the outlet, after dating for just a few months, Minaj and Petty are talking marriage, but they haven’t gotten that piece of government paper just yet. And, TMZ is also reporting that Petty’s past problems with the law aren’t an issue for Minaj.
Petty has a conviction history that includes first-degree attempted rape and manslaughter. But, he treats Minaj like a queen, and for her, that’s what matters.
The couple may have just started dating a few months ago, but they have known each other for a long time. They actually met when they were children and grew up in the same neighborhood.
Despite multiple attempts from the media to pick apart the relationship – as well as his criminal past – insiders say that Minaj couldn’t care less about what people say, and she is more than happy to show off their relationship on social media.
This past weekend, she gave her fans on Instagram a reminder of just how far back she and Petty go. Minaj posted two old photos – one of her and one of Petty – and she revealed she has been crushing on him for a long time.

When we were younger I liked his nose & he liked that tooth sticking out my mouth. 😩 I hated having to smile cuz I didn’t want anyone to see it 🤦🏽♀️😂 he still brings that tooth up all the time. He says he misses it. Should I get that tooth back y’all? 😭 the original Kirsten Dunst. ☺️
She told fans that when they were young, she liked his nose and he liked “that tooth sticking out of my mouth.” Minaj explained that she hated to smile because she didn’t want people seeing it. Now, the rapper says that Petty still brings the tooth up all the time, and claims to miss it.
“Should I get that tooth back y’all?” she asked.
Nicki Minaj has had major dental work to fix her smile, so if she is considering bringing back the tooth, it must be true love.
