Minaj also gushingly added: “I’m very happy about that because my baby makes me so happy.”

Back in June, Minaj let fans know that the two had obtained a marriage license.

“We did get our marriage license,” Minaj told Queen Radio at the time.   

“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.”

But the Anaconda artist has been widely criticized for becoming engaged to convicted felon Kenneth “Zoo” Petty. 

Minaj has come out swinging against fans who have cast doubt on Petty.

“When a person is with a n**** that loved them before they had a dime in their pocket?” she proclaimed on her show. 

“How do you not understand that? How do you not understand happiness versus clout? How f***ing dare you talk about lowering standards,” the Megatron star added.

Minaj insisted she is happy Petty is not famous in his own right.

However her beau’s criminal rap sheet is disturbing to say the least. One of his felonies includes the attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl in 1994 when he was 16.

He went to prison for almost four years for the crime and was registered as a level two sex offender in New York.

In response to naysayers on Instagram, Minaj replied: “He was 15, she was 16 … in a relationship. But go awf Internet. Y’all can’t run my life. Y’all can’t even run y’all own life. Thank you boo.”

He fiancé has also been arrested for manslaughter for his involvement in the deadly shooting of a man. Petty grew up in Queens, New York just like his girlfriend Minaj. It is where the pair first met before Minaj hit the big time.
