Nicki Minaj is officially married to Kenneth Petty.

The news would be far more exciting were it not for the fact that Petty is a convicted rapist and murderer.

“We did get our marriage license,” Nicki said in a podcast interview over the summer.

“I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness. It was so hard to get to a happy place. Now that I’m there, I don’t want to compromise that for anyone or anything.”

“I have to work on my album and I have a lot to focus on that I don’t want to do the big wedding now. We’ll do the big wedding later," the rapper continued.

"I’m very happy about that because my baby makes me so happy."

On Monday, Nicki took to Instagram to reveal that she and Petty had finally gotten hitched.

Petty has served time for manslaughter and attempted rape.
