After less than a year of dating, the "Barbie Tingz" rapper took to Instagram late Monday night (October 21) to announce she and Petty are finally married. Minaj broke the news with a revealing video, which showed the newlyweds' "Mr. and Mrs." mugs and white baseball caps with "Bride" and "Groom" embroidered on them. Without giving too many details about her low-key nuptials, the "Super Bass" star instead captioned the clip with, "👰🏽🤵🏽😢🙏🏽🎀 Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10•21•19," making reference to her married name.

As Barbz and Kenz know, it was only a matter of time before Minaj and Petty would tie the knot.
You can call, the recording artist revealed during the August 12 episode of her "Queen Radio" show that the lovebirds had already registered for a marriage license. "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,” Minaj dished during the broadcast.
"[We] filed for the marriage license and 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," she explained. "That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days." What's more, the "Hot Girl Summer" emcee previously hinted she'd be "married before my album comes out, but will have my wedding after the album comes out."
Minaj and Petty have been dating since 2018, and became Instagram-official last December. Despite what fans have had to say about her hubby's criminal past, the "Megatron" lyricist has held firm to her love for her man since they became a duo.
Congrats, Nicki and Kenneth!
