Nicki Minaj's love life has had its ups and downs, but now that she's finally found the man she wants to spend the rest of her life with, she wants to make sure her fans don't make the same mistakes with love that she previously made.
On Sunday (September 1) the "Welcome to the Party" rapper took to Twitter to give her followers advice on how to deal with toxic relationships based off her personal experiences. "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," she began. "We’ve all been there. I saw my parents fight & argue non stop & never divorce, so I thought this was normal behavior."
Nicki then directly addressed her fans, calling them "beautiful souls," and gave her top five rules for love. "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," she wrote. "I rlly used to think love had to hurt. So I could never look down on anyone else. 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."
Nicki went on to add that she remembers "being so afraid to speak cuz I never knew when that person would be in a particular mood and I could maybe say one wrong thing that would get me hit. So the diff you see in me now is that feeling when a woman feels lifted up, safe, appreciated & unconditionally loved."
"But I first had to learn how to love MYSELF. 🙏🏾 if you wouldn’t let a man treat your mother, your sister or best friend like that b/c you LOVE them, then you wouldn’t let a man treat YOU like that b/c you love YOU," she continued.
Nicki concluded her Twitter message with words of hope, writing, "This isn’t about judging. We judge too much. Lift them up. 🙏🏾."
Last month, Nicki hinted that she and her boyfriend Kenneth Petty are married when she changed her Twitter name to "Mrs. Petty." Fans were shocked by the move as it came just days after the 36-year-old rapper confirmed that she and Kenneth are set to tie the knot in "about 80 days."
