Is Nicki Minaj safe? With all the hoopla surrounding what's been occurring with her now husband Kenneth Petty, she might have been better off sticking it out with Meek Mill. Their relationship in comparison to what she's dealing with now seems like a walk in the park. It's understandable that with Petty she probably feels comfortable and trusting because of their history. This is common for celebrities to stick with those they knew from the beginning because weeding out those who want to use you, versus those who genuinely like you, is a challenge.
