Welcome to ‘Love Life Lowdown’ where we take a look at which lucky guys have gotten the chance to date rap ‘Queen’ Nicki Minaj.
Back in 2002, the hip hop superstar met fellow artist Safaree Samuels. Things turned romantic between them in 2004, and they were together for more than a decade, sparking numerous engagement rumours along the way. Shortly after celebrating their 10 year anniversary, though, they reportedly got into a huge fight that turned physical, with Minaj grabbing a baseball bat and chasing Samuels out of the house.
A few months later, Nicki’s longtime friend Meek Mill got out of prison. Almost immediately fans began to speculate about their relationship. The two denied things for a long time, but by April of 2015 had confirmed that they were an item. In early 2017, though, the diva announced she was single again.
After a fling with rapper Nas, and rumored hookups with stars like Drake and Formula 1 racer Lewis Hamilton. In December of 2018, Minaj went public with the news that she’d reunited with one Kenneth Petty. Who she’d dated back when they were teens. Despite a bit of controversy as Petty spent time in prison and is a registered sex offender. The pair tied the knot in October of 2019, with Nicki announcing the news on Instagram. By uploading a video to her page of matching “Mr” and “Mrs” coffee mugs and “Bride” and “Groom” baseball hats. In the caption, she revealed her new full married name to be “Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty”. Congratulations to Nicki and Kenneth!
