Nicki Minaj shocks fans by announcing her retirement from music

The rapper wants to "start a family"


Nicki Minaj has shocked fans by announcing her retirement from music.

The 36-year-old rapper, who has released four studio albums, revealed the news on Twitter.

She tweeted: “I’ve decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now.”

“To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, ❌ in the box- cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. ✅ Love you for LIFE ????♥️????.”

The Tobago-born singer, who released her most recent album ‘Queen’ last year, later apologised to her fans for announcing her retirement so abruptly.

After a fan tweeted, “Can u please just address this retirement thing. You never left us so hurt your entire career,” Nicki replied, “I’m still right here. Still madly in love with you guys & you know that.”

She added: “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 ♥️????.”

Nicki now plans to start a family with her rumoured husband Kenneth Petty.

Her relationship with Kenneth has caused a lot of controversy since they first went public with their romance in December.

The 40-year-old is a registered sex offender in New York, and was convicted of attempted rape in the first degree in April 1995.

According to reports, Kenneth served four years in prison, and he also served 10 months in prison back in 2006 – after pleading guilty to first-degree manslaughter.
