Nicki Minaj Opens Up About Her Previous Abusive Relationship

The star uses her own experiences to offer advice and support to fans.

Nicki Minaj took to Twitter today, opening up about a past abusive relationship in a series of 5 tweets that addressed her personal experiences. The Grammy Award-winning rapper also advised her fans to offer “sound advice” to those who are currently in toxic relationships, rather than passing judgment.

“When u see a woman in a toxic relationship, rather than laugh & say mean things, try to offer sound advice from your heart & root for her to learn her worth. We’ve all been there,” she said. “I saw my parents fight & argue non stop & never divorce, so I thought this was normal behavior…”

She continued on and said:

“I rlly used to think love had to hurt. So I could never look down on anyone else,” she confessed. “We are merely human. It’s not easy to leave. Especially in the world of IG where all ppl want to do is post relationship goal pics for clout & attention. A man should make you feel safe, not afraid.”

She also listed out signs for her followers indicating how you can tell if you or someone you know may be in an abusive relationship:

“Dear all of you beautiful souls. A man who loves you does not:

1. Humiliate you on social media
2. Beat you
3. Cheat on you
4. Call you out of your name/put you down to lower your self esteem due to his own insecurities.
5. Hide his phone, passwords, where abouts, etc.”

Minaj is currently in a relationship with Kenneth Petty and according to Entertainment Tonightthe rapper shared on her Queen Radio last month that she plans to marry Petty:

“[We] filed for the marriage license and we still had to pick it up and I was traveling, by the time I came back, we had to renew it again. From that time, you have 90 days to get married. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days. I have to work on my album and I have a lot to focus on that [so] I don’t want to do the big wedding now. We’ll do the big wedding later. I’ll be married before my album comes out, but will have my wedding after the album comes out.”
