Congratulations are in order for Nicki Minaj.
The 36-year-old rapper married her love Kenneth Petty on Monday. The “Super Bass” star announced the news via Instagram.
“Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10•21•19,” she wrote on the social network. She also posted footage of some “Mr.” and “Mrs.” mugs and matching “bride” and “groom” hats.
Many of Minaj’s celebrity pals congratulated her on the major milestone.
“Congrats queen!” Christina Aguilera wrote in the comments section.
“Congratulations to you both on your beautiful union,” added Naomi Campbell.
The “Anaconda” artist hinted she was getting ready to tie the knot after picking up a marriage license with her main man in July. She also recently told E! News’ Justin Sylvester that she wanted a particular pastor to conduct the ceremony.
“We’ve gotten our marriage license, but there’s a particular pastor who I want to officiate and so she was just made available as of today,” she said last week. “She told me that she’s available within the next week, so we could be married in the next seven days.”
The two sparked romance rumors near the end of 2018. However, it wasn’t long before they started hinting that they were ready to take the next step. Just a few months later, Minaj started referring to Petty as her “husband.” She also changed her Twitter name to “Mrs. Petty.” He even appeared in her music video for “MEGATRON.”
Some of Minaj’s followers expressed concern over the relationship. Petty is a registered sex offender in New York. According to the state’s Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, he also served time in prison after being convicted of manslaughter. Still, Minaj defended Petty.
