Nicki Minaj Vows To Get Married In Next 80 Days
Nicki Minaj said Monday she will marry Kenneth “Zoo” Petty in the next 80 days.
“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,” Minaj said on her radio show. “From that time, you have 90 days to get married. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days.”
The 36-year-old rap star said the couple will wait a bit longer to throw a wedding fit for a queen.
“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,” she explained. “We’ll do the big wedding later.”
It will be the first marriage for Minaj, whose real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She previously had a 14-year relationship with rapper Safaree Samuels and dated Meek Mill for two years.
Minaj and Petty went public with their relationship last December and Minaj found herself defending it because Petty is a registered sex offender. (“He was 15, she was 16 … in a relationship,” she wrote on social media. “But go awf, Internet. … Y’all can’t run my life.”
On Monday, Minaj said she is looking forward to getting married. “I’m very happy about that,” she said, “because my baby makes me so happy.”
