Nicki Minaj adopts married name on Twitter


Nicki Minaj has fuelled ongoing rumors suggesting she recently wed fiance Kenneth Petty by changing her name on Twitter.

The rapper has informed her 20 million Twitter followers her account name will be Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty from Friday (August 16, 2019).

The change comes days after reports suggested the couple had tied the knot quietly in Los Angeles after obtaining a marriage license in New York.

Earlier this week, Minaj told listeners to her Queen Radio show that she and Petty would be married within 80 days.

“We filed for the marriage license and we still had to pick it up and I was traveling, by the time I came back, we had to renew it again,” she said. “From that time, you have 90 days to get married. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days. I’ll be married before my album comes out, but will have my wedding after the album comes out.”

She added, “I’m very happy about that because my baby makes me so happy.”

The Megatron hitmaker and Petty have been dating since December (2018).
