The relationship has been somewhat of a polarizer for Minaj’s fans, some of whom have expressed reservations about Petty and his well-documented past.

However, ever one to march to the beat of her own drum, the femcee is doing things on her own terms.

      Congrats Nicki. Why marry up when u can marry trash? A murderer and ra pist is trash in my little opinion!

  2. Jasmine The Real Princess October 22, 2019

    Wishing her a speedy divorce (no pre-nup I hope ) and a few miscarriages

      Just to let you know that vile darkness that you just spewed will come back to bite you. Never wish death or pain on someone

    Happy for them. Haters can stay the hell away.

    NICKI MINAJ IS A DESPERATE, INSATIABLE, OBNOXIOUS, MISGUIDED, INSECURE BIRD. Nicki makes impulsive decisions that stem from her series of irrational, left field thoughts. She has completely lost her way artistically & is now using this marriage as a cushion for the rigid edges of her tortured soul. It’s sad & incredibly PATHETIC.

  5. Only Facts October 22, 2019

    He’s going to take all her money the second she has his baby. I’m sure she didn’t get a prenup. He’ll want half of everything and become an executive producer on Queef Radio. Watch.

  6. Tyty October 22, 2019

    She likes men she can emasculate. He has no job or life other than following behind her. Either his a b**** or he has a plan in store for her. No way a s** fiend and murderer would just marry a woman like Nicki for “love”.

  7. Yolanda October 22, 2019

    Is it coincidence that Nicki and Safaree got married month(s) apart? It’s troubling that Nicki struggles to articulate what Zoo means to her. It’s cool to start off as friends, but did they keep in touch during the years Nicki was dating Safaree, Meek, and Nas? Otherwise, he should feel like a stranger. She said that he could care less about the industry and limelight, but his face is always in the camera. Attention everyone, the sin is in the fornication, not having a baby. Don’t let dem hypocritical christians lead you to believe you must get married in order to have a baby.

      @Yolanda – “She said that he could care less about the industry and limelight, but his face is always in the camera.” — She makes him appear with her. Just as she did in one of her videos that he wasn’t interested in appearing in.

  8. CHINA October 22, 2019

    She needs to Go Away. Have a Baby. Find some new “sons” to rap about. Its Lizzo/Cardi/Megan’s time to shine. BYE B_ITCH

    • Kenny October 22, 2019

      Cardi career is almost over

      • Dc October 22, 2019

        Cardi album still on billboard charts and currently recording second album who tf are you to say someone career almost over y’all damn haters pathetic

      • You tried October 22, 2019

        DC the hypocrite yet you come on here everyday to bash Nicki and down play her career and Others

  9. Yolanda October 22, 2019

    Well, at least we’re not talking about her brother, who is scheduled for sentencing in November.

  10. MessyBoots October 22, 2019

    Hahahaha… every article I’ve seen of this news do not gloss over his criminal background. In fact they shade her. I find this from E News is especially funny…

    “Still, their love has not been without controversy. Petty is a registered s** offender in New York and reportedly was convicted of attempted r*** in 1995. TMZ reports he spent four years in prison and was sentenced again in 2006 after pleading guilty to first-degree manslaughter. He was released in 2013.

    Following backlash from fans, Minaj defended Petty in the comments section of a December 2018 Instagram post, stating “He was 15, she was 16 … in a relationship. But go awf Internet. Y’all can’t run my life. Y’all can’t even run y’all own life. Thank you boo.”

    Congrats boo! ????

    • You tried October 22, 2019

      Not condoning r*** but it’s said that her mother did not line him and when she found out that her daughter had been with him she claimed r***. Can’t defend his other history though.

  11. L’ORANGE October 22, 2019

    They both abused drugs. As a result, it impaired your mind. Nicki and her husband are lost souls

  12. TruthfullySpeaking8272 October 22, 2019

    Officially the most TOXIC entertainer in history. And her fanbase make her worst and worst being whole YES MEN. They want her to be perfect and flawless so bad when she’s far from it, they stay slaving her to the studio to pump out 263528282829 songs/features a year for a decade while real artists with timeless music took breaks to better themselves mentally and build a family. Nicki will never be happy because shes an insecure greedy FAME W**** and it will be the death of her. Barbz’ infatuation + Nicki wanting the most without humility is the perfect recipe for disaster. Just watch! ?

    • MessyBoots October 22, 2019

      Isn’t it weird how Nicki Minaj brother is serving life behind bars for the continuous r a p e of a child, her new husband also was convicted of r a p ing a child, her best bud Tekashi was also convicted of, wait for it, molesting a child! And the cherry on the cake is the fact she refers to herself as “Roman zolanski” after paedophile Roman Polanski! A very sick human being to idolize.

      • D October 22, 2019

        This ?

      • Swirly October 22, 2019

        Nicki certainly has a disturbing pattern of coddling p*********.

  13. Just Sayin’ October 22, 2019

    Hope she is happy now. Hope when she has his baby and her dumb ass ends up paying child support and spouse support. Sis better save them Fendi cheques cause she going to need them to support this bum and his child.

  14. Truth October 22, 2019

  15. King Khia October 22, 2019

    And another L…

  16. Barb #1 October 22, 2019

    I don’t know why people make such a fuss about his criminal past? He has paid his debt to society. You should keep that same energy for all the celebs who have a criminal past…

    • Jasmine The Real Princess October 22, 2019

      No we won’t. Flopnika is a p*** supporter

    • TruthfullySpeaking8272 October 22, 2019

      Have that same energy for Remy when y’all call her a felon, hypocrite. Barbz are soo dumb.

  17. Kurtz October 22, 2019

    If they were to start a family, would he even be allowed 100 feet near his children or their future schools? I mean he is a registered s** offender. Nicki is gross, desperate and miserable. Best of luck sis!!!!

    • Glass house October 22, 2019

      Registered at 16 because his girlfriends mom hated him and claimed r***

      • Swirly October 22, 2019


        Nicki has a pattern. It’s clear as day. Keep your head in the mud if you please.

  23. High Price October 22, 2019

    It would of been so cool for her to do like a 3 or 4 episode reality t.v special. But filmed in super high quality! Nicki Minaj has been acting so bootleg. From the rollout of her Queen album, up until now. Stuff with no thought process. I know marriage is “sacred” and all but you are “Nicki Minaj”. People would have LOVED to see her on TV. Like fox 8 or NBC. And I bet her show would’ve been the highest rated each night! Smh. A behind the scenes look into Nicki Minaj’s life? Actually hearing and watching her soon to be husband articulate himself? Probably seeing her home and family and real friends? Smh. What a waste.

    But Congratulations though.

  24. lucy fur October 22, 2019

    i hope there’s no prenup and he dumps her and takes it all

  25. only facts October 23, 2019

    I’m just waiting for the day one of the new rap girls says to Nicki, what Nicki said to Lil Kim in 2009/10: “”Every time you in the news, it’s ’cause you gettin’ at somebody! Where’s your music? Put your music out, and when I see your name on Billboard, that’s when I’ll respond to you. Other than that, goodbye.”

  26. I Hate blaccc n whyyy y’all not sht October 23, 2019

    Lucky man
