KENNETH Petty is a music industry professional who made headlines for his relationship with Nicki Minaj.
However, in July 2022, the singer’s husband made headlines after he was sentenced to house arrest for failing to register as a sex offender.
Who is Kenneth Petty?
Petty, who is also nicknamed Zoo, was born in Queens, New York, on April 7, 1972.
The 50-year-old currently works in the music industry.
Petty has appeared in two of Minaj’s music videos, including Megatron and Hot Girl Summer.
Petty and Minaj’s story goes back to when she was just 16 years old.
The two knew each other before fame and even dated a long time ago, but they got married in 2019
When did Kenneth and Nicki have their baby?
Minaj announced that the couple was expecting on July 20, 2020, with a glamorous photo of her cradling her baby bump on social media.
She posted on Instagram: “I had the worst morning sickness ever. I also didn’t know morning sickness could last all day.”
The singer then gave birth to her baby on Wednesday, September 30, 2020, in Los Angeles, a source close to the couple confirmed to The Sun.
At the time, Petty had to get special permission to be present at the birth because it was outside of her curfew hours.
Who are Nicki Minaj’s previous relationships?
Before deciding to settle down and start a family, Minaj was linked to some high-profile celebrities in the past.
For over a decade, Minaj dated rapper Safaree Samuels before calling it quits in 2011.
In 2015, Samuels released a new song in which he came after his ex for their messy breakup.
“No one will love you like I do, 12 years on fire, I thought you’d have my son,” he sang.
After her breakup with Samuels, Minaj had an affair with Drake.
While both denied being romantically involved, Drake starred in his music video for the 2014 hit Anaconda, where she gave him a lap dance, Drake also didn’t hide the fact that he had a crush on her, adding to the rumors.
For two years, Minaj dated rapper Meek Mill.
After their split, she was also rumored to be dating rappers Nas and Eminem before reuniting with Petty.
