Nicki Minaj isn't shy about letting the world know she's head over heels for her new boyfriend Kenneth "Zoo" Petty.

On Sunday (Dec. 23), the "Barbie Dreams" rapper shared several photos of herself alongside romantic sand drawing professing her love for Petty. "-- Ken -N- Barbie --," she captioned the pictures.

The couple made their relationship Instagram official a few weeks ago. Since then, they've let everyone know just how crazy they are for each other. On Friday, Minaj shared a video showing a large tattoo of her first name, Onika, on Petty's neck.

“Did ya tat hurt zaddy? -- his first tat- frontin like it didn’t sting -- #Onika #HeavyOnIt ---- #SuperSleezy 〽️----” she captioned the video. Watch the clip below.

Minaj's relationship with Petty drew some controversy after news surfaced that he's a registered sex offender in New York and was convicted of manslaughter in 2002.
