Nicki Minaj has been dominating social media over the last week after rereleasing her 2009 “Beam Me Up Scotty” mixtape, which included additional tracks. This came after taking a social media hiatus for a few months causing fans to become anxious for the hip-hop legend to finally put out some new music. Now Nicki is taking to social media to release some family photos and videos as well. The latest is a throwback photo with her husband, Kenneth Petty, from 2020.
Fans Love New Nicki Photo With Kenneth Petty And Their Son
Last fall, Nicki also gave birth to her first child. On Thursday evening, a photo surfaced of the two together with their son from what appears to be during Christmas time last year. Kenneth is seen with a sharp blue suit and Nicki is sporting an outfit which screams royalty. Their son is seen in an all-white comfortable onesie, which signaled that he was heading for bed soon.
Nicki And Kenneth Have Been Married For Almost Two Years Now
Nicki and Kenneth are definitely in love. The two ended up officially getting married in October of 2019 after finally reconnecting in 2018. During that time, Nicki confirmed the marriage on her Instagram feed by posting hats that read “bride” and “groom” along with “Mr.” and “Mrs.” Prior to that, Nicki took to her Queen Radio to reveal that the two had gotten their marriage license, which confirmed they would be newly weds very soon.
Kenneth Received Backlash Due To Criminal History
Despite Nicki showing that she is very much happy with Kenneth in this marriage, it was a rocky road leading to this point. Kenneth still receives criticism on social media due to his criminal history. Last February, he was arrested after again failing to register as a sex offender in California. He is listed as one in his home state of New York. This dates back to a 1995 conviction for first-degree attempted rape. Kenneth ended up serving four years in prison.
Nicki’s ‘Beam Me Up Scotty’ Mixtape Is Putting Up Big Numbers
As Nicki continues to enjoy family life, her music is making some power plays as well. With the success of the rerelease of the “Beam Me Up Scotty” mixtape last week, it is heading for a number two debut on the Billboard 200 chart. This would fall just behind J. Cole’s “The Off-Season” album. “Beam Me Up Scott”y was led by new tracks such as the highly anticipated “Fractions” along with “Seeing Green” featuring Drake and Lil Wayne.
