Nicki Minaj Just Compared Her Husband to Prince Harry
After a three-month hiatus, following her marriage to her childhood sweetheart, Kenneth Petty, Nicki Minaj has returned to the spotlight in a big way. From the release of her new single, “Yikes” to a slew of new Instagram photos, and her return to Queen Radio, it’s clear that Minaj has something up her sleeve.
Unfortunately, The Pinkprint rapper’s return hasn’t been all about music and her career. In the last month, she’s had several confrontations with her ex, rapper Meek Mill. In January, the exes got into a verbal spat at a Hollywood clothing store where Petty also found himself in the mix.
More recently, the pair were engaged in a vicious Twitter war, with Minaj claiming that Mill always has something nasty to say about her husband. Now the Queen rapper just explained why she thinks Petty is just like Prince Harry.
Who is Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty?
Minaj wed Petty on October 21, 2019, in a super-secret wedding. Though the duo has never shown the public any photographs of their big day, the rapper shared a small glimpse of her wedding with a caption that read, “Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10•21•19.” Unfortunately, not everyone is happy about Minaj’s choice in a husband.
Though Petty and the rapper dated when they were younger, before Minaj was famous, Petty has a hair-raising criminal history. In 1994, Petty was convicted for attempted rape. A “knife/cutting instrument” was reportedly wielded during the attack. The survivor in question was a 16-year-old girl and Petty is still a registered sex offender as a result.
Then in 2006, Petty was convicted of manslaughter. He shot someone “with a loaded handgun (sic) multiple times thereby causing his death.” He served 7 years in prison. Now, people are uncertain about Petty’s motives with Minaj.
Nicki Minaj is constantly defending her husband
When people question Petty’s character, the “All Things Go” rapper defends him. In her recent Twitter feud with Meek Mill, she accused him of constantly attacking her husband. She tweeted, “Trigger fingers turn to #TwitterFingers.” She then accused Mill of being a “bad built face a** obsessed with the Queen.” She added he had been, “tweeting bout my man for a year now. Talking bout he went to my page to see him but he was blocked.”
In the past, Minaj also clapped back at Wendy Williams for her remarks about Petty. “I didn’t know that in our society, you have to be inaudible by your past,” she said on Queen Radio. I didn’t know that people can’t turn over a new leaf. I didn’t know that your viciousness and evilness was this deep-rooted. I understand now. When a woman isn’t really being loved at home, their viciousness is a different type. But I really wanted to pray for you today because — look at where you are now in your life.”
Nicki Minaj compared her husband to Prince Harry
With the return of Queen Radio — Minaj was eager to get into Megxit. She compared Prince Harry sacrificing the life he’s always known for Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, to something her husband would do.
“I do want to get into something. Who thinks it’s good that Meghan Markle left the UK with her husband…Kudos to Harry,” she said. “This is what I love about my husband. Real men always say ‘a happy wife a happy life.’ That’s what real men say. That’s so attractive. It turns me on. Put your woman first. What happened with Princess Diana, we don’t need a rerun…you know how much I love Princess Diana. If you’re being bullied in the media, and you’re sick of the s–t, and all you wanted was to marry the man you love…then get the f–k out of there.”
