Nicki Minaj Marries Kenneth ‘Zoo’ Petty

Rapper Nicki Minaj, 36, and Kenneth “Zoo” Petty, 41, are officially husband and wife!

On Monday, Nicki announced that they were married by posting an Instagram video of Mr. and Mrs. mugs with bride and groom caps.

Minaj referenced her new name with the caption, “👰🏽🤵🏽😢🙏🏽🎀 Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10•21•19.”

In August, Nicki revealed that they would be getting married soon since they filed for a marriage license. On her Beats 1 “Queen Radio” show, she said, “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.”

She noted that they weren’t going have an elaborate wedding. Minaj explained, “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.”

The pair, who have known each other since they were teenagers, have been dating since last year. They made it Instagram official in December.

Since then, Kenneth has become a regular fixture on her Instagram.

Nicki has also clapped back at the criticism over her relationship with Kenneth, and earlier this year, Nicki sparked marriage rumors when she called Kenneth her “husband.” She said on her radio show, “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.”

Nicki is mixing business with pleasure, even having Kenneth star in her music video “Megatron.”

Before she dated Kenneth, Nicki was linked to Lewis Hamilton and Eminem.
