Nicki Minaj may be known for her chart-topping hits and glamorous lifestyle, but it’s her love life that has really caught our attention. Amongst all her celebrity romances, there’s one that stands out — the epic reunion with her high school flame, Kenneth Petty.
After years of being apart and a few entanglements in between, these two lovebirds were finally able to find their way back to each other! Their love story began when they were just 14 years old, and fate brought them together again after breakups with other partners. Now, they are happily married and proud parents of a beautiful baby boy.
A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Ella "Bands" Rodriguez
A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, born Artist Dubose, is a famous rapper from the Bronx, New York. He gained mainstream recognition with his debut album, "The Bigger Artist," which included hit singles "Drowning" and "Say A." He further rose to fame by collaborating with other notable artists, such as Cardi B and 6ix9ine.
His love life has been nothing short of a soap opera drama. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and longtime girlfriend Ella "Bands" Rodriguez have been putting on a show of love-and-hate since 2016, with social media serving as their stage. Ella is also involved in the music industry. Unfortunately, after a lot of drama and two kids later, they decided to call it quits in 2021.
Rev Run and Justine Jones
Rev Run, the iconic DJ and rapper who has blessed us with decades of music, tied the knot in '94 with his soulmate Justine Jones. Rev Run had three kids from his previous marriage and went on to have two more with his Justine. Tragically, however, one of them passed away soon after she was born, so the couple decided to adopt a baby girl.
As if that weren’t inspiring enough, both Rev Run and Justine have seen incredible success in their own rights. From Reverend Run becoming an actor and ordained minister (yes you read that right!), to Justine launching her own line of jewelry as well as having acting credits on some popular shows, these two have become a respected power couple.
Tyga and Avril Lavigne
In what many consider to be quite an odd match, the emo queen Avril Lavigne and famous rapper Tyga recently became a couple. The Canadian singer that rose to fame at age 16 with her chart-topping debut album “Let Go” is still a prominent figure in the music industry – and now one-half of a power couple.
Even though there had been rumors, Lavigne and Tyga confirmed them by sharing a passionate kiss in 2023 at a party thrown for actress Hunter Schafer by the fashion brand Mugler at Paris Fashion Week. We hope ex-wife Blac Chyna has no hard feelings about it all.
Timbaland and Monique Idlett
Famous rapper, songwriter, and music producer Timbaland was born in Virginia in 1972; he started his career as a DJ and worked his way up to producing chart-topping hits for world-famous artists like Justin Timberlake, Aaliyah, and Missy Elliott. In 2008, he married his longtime sweetheart Monique Idlett, who is also an entrepreneur and music executive.
In fact, Monique oversaw doing PR for the rapper for five years until it turned into a love story, and two years later, they tied the knot. Monique is now the CEO of her own tech venture capital firm and works alongside Timbaland on several projects. Despite hardships, this couple has stayed strong and have a beautiful daughter together.
