Rumors swirled that Minaj married Petty in a civil ceremony recently. But she dismissed the rumors.

The couple initially dated when they were both teenagers in Queens, NY. He served seven years in prison for first-degree manslaughter and was released in 2013.

The couple hooked back up in 2018. They have been inseparable ever since.

Petty, who has a criminal record, came under scrutiny for carrying a loaded weapon during an Instagram Live video.

Many pointed out that the 41-year-old ex convict came off supervised probation just last year.
