Nicki Minaj and her controversial beau Kenneth Petty don’t look like they’re cooling off any time soon, after starting the new year off with a rather steamy hot tub video. The Chun-Li rapper and her former jailbird bf packed on the PDA for New Year’s Day, with the star getting her feet kissed and toes licked in a playful Instagram post. Grinning from ear to ear, the 36-year-old even gets picked up and swayed around before enjoying a skyline view and tossing her head back in pure bliss. The loved-up couple’s displays of affection certainly didn’t go unnoticed by the artist’s loyal Barbie fans, with the video picking up over three million views in just two hours online.

Leave her and Kenny tf alone, She starting 2019 HAPPY.’ While another fan wrote: ‘@nickiminaj ugh I love them’ This isn’t the first time that the couple have gone public with their affection for each other after Minaj marked her love for Kenneth in the sand and he permanently marked his love for the rapper on his neck. The star is even said to be thinking about settling down with the 40-year-old and having children according to reports from Hollywood Life. A source revealed that: ‘Nicki has had babies on the brain for a while now. ‘She does want kids and she’s getting to that place where she’s really ready. She’s clearly falling very hard and fast for Kenneth so he may be the lucky man to father her child.’ Could we be hearing the pitter-patter sound of tiny stilettos in 2019? The couple’s recent relationship hasn’t come without some controversy though, with Kenneth reported to be a level two registered sex offender, which means he is a moderate risk of repeat offence. He was placed on the register after a 1995 conviction for attempted rape in the first degree over an incident that occurred with a 16-year-old girl and served between 18 to 54 months in prison. In 2006, Kenneth also pleaded guilty to first degree manslaughter over the shooting death of a man named Lamont Robinson four years earlier. He was released in May 2013 and was under supervision until May this year. However, the childhood friends-turned-lovers don’t seem to be phased by any hate and wished the Queen’s 97 million followers: ‘BLESSINGS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL.
