Nicki Minaj is officially retiring.
“I’ve decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now,” the “Starships” rapper, 36, tweeted. “To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, in the box- cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE ♥️.”
It was not immediately clear whether or not the post is serious, a plea for attention, or even an act of spite toward unspecified haters.
As for the family aspect, she said on her Queen Radio show that she and boyfriend Kenneth Petty will be married “in 80 days.”
Nicki Minaj has had a rough year. Variety broke the news in April that she had parted ways with longtime managers Gee Roberson and Cortez Bryant.
She also got into a widely reported altercation with Cardi B. During New York Fashion Week last fall that saw the younger rapper trying to physically attack Minaj. Minaj later called the incident “mortifying and humiliating.”
However, Minaj has been active with guest appearances in recent months, most recently appearing in Megan Thee Stallion’s “Hot Girl Summer” clip, which dropped on Tuesday.
