While Nicki Minaj may not be married to Kenneth Petty just yet, her latest stage costume certainly seems to suggest otherwise. The rapper, 36, often refers to her boyfriend as her “husband” on social media, but according to sources close to the couple, the duo haven’t tied the knot just yet. But the “Starships” singer’s latest Instagram from the European leg of her tour makes it clear she’s more than ready to walk down the aisle. The pop star showed off a new costume featuring a short white veil, white sequin-paneled bodysuit and matching sheer tulle skirt while backstage at her Zurich show on Wednesday. “On stage, it’s all smiles,” Minaj captioned the shot. “Under the stage, it’s laser sharp focus. Don’t panic.” The couple made things Instagram-official back in December, and immediately faced backlash after it was revealed that Petty is a registered sex offender who was convicted for the attempted rape of a 16 year old girl as well as manslaughter. Earlier this month, he also pleaded guilty to aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. Neither of these charges has fazed Minaj, however, who wrote in an Instagram comment last December, “But go awf, internet, y’all can’t run my life, y’all can’t even run y’all own life.”
What do you think? Is it time for Nicki Minaj to settle down?
