Married Nicki Minaj After Dating Less Than A Year

Kenneth Petty had known Nicki Minaj since his high school days and even dated for a while. But, a serious relationship between the two developed only around December 2018. To showcase his love for Nicki, Kenneth also inked a tattoo featuring Nicki Minaj's name on his neck in December 2018.

The duo was together for nearly a year before getting married in a low-key wedding ceremony on 21 October 2019. Though the details of the wedding haven't surfaced in public, Nicki has openly flaunted her 17-carat diamond ring- which cost Kenneth a massive $1.1 million. Earlier, Kenneth and his wife had gotten their marriage license in June 2019.
