More tunes coming at you throughout the show, but for now our top stories. Both Nicki Minaj and Ryan Hurd are coming to the defense of their spouses. Let’s break it down. Nicki Minaj is responding after her husband, Kenneth Petty, was placed under house arrest for 120 days following a series of social media posts allegedly showing him violating his probation. Nicki seemed to respond to the drama on her IG stories writing “Can’t call the cops every time you flop, just saying,” along with a string of laughing emojis. The house arrest came after Nicki’s husband was recorded on video making threatening remarks to a specific individual while in the company of someone with a criminal record according to a Central District of California court order.
Ryan Hurd is coming to his wife Maren Morris’s defense after the singer released “The Bridge” and announced her departure from country music. Ryan took to IG to support Maren, writing “She deserves to be celebrated, not just tolerated.” He also hit back against those who have criticized his wife, writing in part, “I’m so sick of watching my wife get the sh*t kicked out of her by the internet. I’m sick of every talking head having some kind of stupid opinion about what she says. It’s the same every time. Why are you surprised when she calls out something racist or homophobic? I’m sick of people getting rewarded for it.” He continued his support of her final country project, “To me ‘The Bridge’ is beautiful and so rock and roll. She deserves a little sunshine for the burden she has carried for every artist and fan that feels the same way.”
