Minaj made a splash after attending carnival in Trinidad and Tobago earlier this year with husband Kenneth Petty.

Petty created a stir after he was captured on video allegedly elbowing soca star Iwer George while he was performing with them on a music truck.

Minaj also produced a Carnival video for 'Pound the Alarm' in Trinidad in 2012. 

Minaj grew up in St James but moved to Queens in New York City at the age of five

Minaj said she and Petty were once childhood sweethearts when she lived in Queens, New York as a child. 

Minaj and Petty were married in October 2019.
