Nicki Minaj defends new beau Kenneth Petty – Nicki Minaj’s rumoured new boyfriend, Kenneth Petty, is a registered sex offender.
Nicki Minaj’s rumoured new boyfriend, Kenneth Petty, is a registered sex offender — but she wants her critics to lay off. According to the NYPD Sex Offender Unit database, Petty was convicted in 1995 for the attempted first-degree rape of a 16-year-old girl in an incident that occurred in 1994, when he was 16, reports People.com.
The Bang Bang rapper took to Instagram hours after their new relationship made headlines. “Oh they wanna talk?” she captioned a series of pictures that show her straddling Petty in one shot and her nearly naked in bed with him in a second picture. Nicki also responded to a commenter who defended Petty. “He was 15, she was 16, in a relationship (sic),” Minaj replied, adding “But go awf, Internet. Y’all can’t run my life. Y’all can’t even run y’all own life. Thank you boo (sic).”
