Nicki Minaj says she's retiring. The “Starships” rapper, 36, took to Twitter on September 5 and shared the shocking news. However, fans are skeptical about her reason for the sudden announcement, and speculate that it may be due to pregnancy.
“I’ve decided to retire & have my family,” the “Super Bass” singer tweeted on September 5. “I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, X in the box – cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE.”
Fans responded to the sudden retirement announcement, and speculated that the rapper is pregnant. “Plot twist she is three months pregnant now,“ one follower chided.
“I smell pregnancy,” another wrote. “FINALLY SHE ABOUT TO HAVE A BABY” an excited fan commented.
Slide 4: This announcement isn’t the only reason fans think Nicki is expecting. On June 27, she appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and joined the host for dinner at Red Lobster. She clarified that she didn’t drink any liquor in a candid tweet for her fans.
The “Anaconda” singer also responded to a fan’s suggestion for baby names in January, and said that they already picked out some names.
The news comes not long after wedding rumors sparked in August when Nicki changed her name on Twitter to “Mrs. Petty” after obtaining a marriage license to boyfriend Kenneth Petty. When Nicki will get married and start her family remains a mystery.
