Nicki Minaj Still Married Amid Rumors of Split with Husband

Nicki Minaj, Kenneth Petty

*Sources close to Nicki Minaj have slammed reports that the rapper and her husband Kenny Petty have called it quits after less than a year of marriage. 

We previously reported… according to Rhymeswithsnitch, one of Kenny’s friends reportedly spilled the tea about the split on Instagram Live. However, the friend apparently didn’t state the reason why Nicki and Kenneth’s marriage fell apart. 

Meanwhile, word on the curb is that Nicki found out Petty was creeping with their threesome partner without her, “and that was all it took for the marriage to come crashing down,” according to one Hollywood insider. 

Fans also noted that the rapper’s display name on Twitter/Instagram was changed from Mrs. Petty to the title of her latest single, “Yikes.”

But an insider tells Page Six, “Nicki Minaj is still with her man. It’s just business as usual for her highness as she prepares to release new music.”

As a teen, Petty was convicted of the attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl. He also previously served seven years in prison for first-degree manslaughter, which he pleaded guilty to. He was released in 2013.

Most recently, he was arrested back in November for not registering as a sex offender when he moved from New York to California.

Petty was released on $20,000 bond and ordered to register, as required by law.

The 42-year-old is awaiting his April 28 trial date. If convicted, Petty reportedly faces up to 10-years in prison.

When news first surfaced of his rape case, Nicki came to her man’s defense. “He was 15, she was 16. In a relationship,” she wrote on social media in 2018. “But go awf Internet. Y’all can’t ruin my life. Y’all can’t even run y’all own life. Thank you boo.”
