The relationship has reached tattoo status.
Nicki Minaj and her new boyfriend Kenneth Petty have the Barbz at attention. Minaj appears to be very much in love with her new sweetheart, which caused the world to dig deeper into his history. After it was discovered that Petty had spent time in jail for manslaughter, the Barbz collectively raised their eyebrows. Soon after, it was revealed that Petty was also a sex offender, and that was the last straw for many of Minaj's fans. They rose up to challenge their idol, but she calmly and smoothly swatted away all the negative energy. You can't help who you love, right?
Nicki Minaj took to social media on Friday to show off just how much her man really loves her. After fixing her hair in selfie mode for a few seconds, Minaj turns the camera on Petty's neck. There, bright as day, is a fresh tattoo that says "Onika" in red and black ink. Onika Tanya Maraj is Nicki's government name. Relationship tattoos are considered bad luck in several circles, but it appears neither Minaj nor Petty are superstitious. Safaree also got a tattoo of Nicki while they were dating, but he had the lengthy arm piece covered up after the breakup.
