Um, Nicki Minaj just called her boyfriend, Kenneth Petty, her "husband," and we need answers!
Following her "Nicki World Tour" stop in London, the 36-year-old rapper opened up about her relationship on a 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,” she explained.
While Nicki didn't seem to blink an eye when she called Kenneth her husband, fans were instantly confused by his status change, given the two only went public three months ago. Not to mention, Nicki has not so much as hinted that she was even engaged.
As fans know, the "Good Form" rapper went Instagram public with Kenneth in December. However, her "I just made it official" joy was short lived as she was bombarded with criticism of her 40-year-old beau. Fans began slamming him over his troubled past, citing his registered sex offender status (he was convicted of first-degree attempted rape in April 1995) and his previous conviction of first-degree manslaughter, which he served seven years in prison for, as a cause for them to split.
Nonetheless, Nicki backed her man, addressing his past on Instagram following the backlash. "He was 15, she was 16... in a relationship," Nicki responded to a fan's comment, referencing Kenneth's rape conviction. "But go awf, Internet. y'all can't run my life. Y'all can't even run y'allown life. Thank you boo." The Queens native also posted two photos of her and Kenneth with the caption: "Oh they wanna talk? Let's give'm sumthn to talk about. *Shania voice*."
Since then, Nicki hasn't stopped gushing about her relationship with Kenneth, detailing NSFW facts about their sex life (she said they have sex three to four times a night), and posting romantic photos of each other all over her social media. However, Nicki hasn't mentioned an engagement and/or wedding. So, it seems safe to assume that someone who has been so public with their relationship, would have shared if they got engaged or married, right?
