Nicki Minaj Marries Suddenly Because Wedding License Was About to Expire, Bigger Celebration to Follow: Report
Nicki Minaj reportedly tied the knot with Kenneth Petty, but apparently they've got plans for a much larger celebration.
According to a report TMZ published on Wednesday (Oct. 23), the Young Money rapper got married quicker than expected due to the fact that her wedding license was set to exceed its 90-day limit. Since the license expires at the end of this month, the couple was married at a private ceremony in Los Angeles with only their immediate family members and a pastor present.
Despite the quick ceremony, the Pettys are expected to have a grand celebration at a later date. According to the source, Nicki and Kenneth will shoot for a small wedding ceremony, a church service and then a huge reception. As of this report, a date for the party has not been confirmed.
The clarification comes after Nicki confirmed her marriage to Kenneth Petty in an Instagram post. On Monday night (Oct. 21), Nicki posted a video that seemingly confirmed that the pair finally said "I do." The brief clip shows the 36-year-old boasting two sets of matching trinkets. One is a mug with "Mrs." inscribed on it while the other holds "Mr." along with a pair of hats with "bride" and "groom" written in cursive.
Nicki Minaj, who toured Europe earlier this year, first confirmed their plans to be married back in August when she told her fans that they got a marriage license on an episode of Queen Radio.
XXL has reached out to Nicki's camp for comment.
