Nicki Minaj took everyone by surprise when she announced that she’d be retiring from the rap game, including Queen Latifah.
Just a few days ago, Nicki Minaj announced on Twitter that she’d be stepping away from the mic in order to pursue a family. Nicki is 36-years-old, and from the looks of it, things are starting to get pretty serious with her new boyfriend Kenneth Petty. Nicki and Petty are rumored to be getting married soon after news broke that they filed for a marriage license.
After making the announcement, Nicki, who changed her Twitter name to Mrs. Petty, apologized to her Twitter fans for such an abrupt announcement. It was no way to break the heavy news to her loyal fanbase, so she promised to talk about it more on her “Queen Radio” show.
“I’m still right here. Still madly in love with you guys & you know that. In hindsight, this should’ve been a Queen Radio discussion & it will be. I promise u guys will be happy. No guests, just us talking about everything. The tweet was abrupt & insensitive, I apologize babe”
