Nicki Minaj has once again stirred another controversy that is currently raging on social media.
The Queen of rap is not new in the game of controversy because it seems like the she thrives on and feeds on it these days.
She has a way of fetching scandals involving bunch of misbehaviors with criminal records, ranging from man slaughter,racism, homophobic, peadophile, rape etc to herself.
When Nicki uploaded picture of her new boyfriend on Instagram. People did a background check on him, to find out who he is, because he’s relatively unknown to many.
It was discovered that he was an Old friend named Kenneth Petty from Queens, NY.
It turns out that Kenneth Petty father of 5, was convicted of first-degree attempted rape in April, 1995 when he tried to force a 16-year-old girl to have sex with him by using a sharp object. He spent four years in NY State Prison, and when he was eventually released he ended up in jail again for seven years for first-degree manslaughter after he shot a man named Lamont Robinson “with a loaded handgun multiple times”. He was released in 2013.
Here are some of his mugshots
Kenneth Petty is a level two registered sex offender, he is classified as being a ‘moderate risk of repeat offence‘, and as a result will remain on the register for life.
You will recall that she made insulting and stigmatising comments against sex workers. Queen album also had some homophobic and racial slur engraved in it. She supported XXXTentacion, who abused his ex-girl friend, collaborated with 6ix9ine, a rapper who pled guilty to the use of a child in a sexual performance this year and is currently awaiting trial for racketeering charges, conspiracy to commit murder, a charge of armed robbery and illegal possession of a semi-automatic rifle (while he was on probation for his previous charge of filming himself with a naked 13-year-old girl).
When 6ix9ine’s team announced that his upcoming debut album, “Dummy Boy,” is delayed until further notice. Minaj, was set to appear on the album, took to Instagram to confirm the news and share her support for Daniel Hernandez aka 6ix9ine
“For reasons beyond music, the record company will hold off on putting his project out for now,” Minaj wrote. “Danny, I love you and am praying for you, your Mother, daughter & her Mom during this time.”
When fans pointed their disapproval, the rapper took to her Instagram comments to defend Kenneth. She wrote, “He was 15, she was 16… in a relationship. But go awf, internet. Y’all can’t run my life. Y’all can’t even run y’all own life.” Since the news broke, Nicki Minaj has turned off Instagram comments and posted a picture with caption “I’m as tick as peanut”
Meanwhile fans are not taking any if that easy, as they have moved to Twitter to express their disapproval.

“imagine working hard for over a decade to secure yourself as the queen of rap, then having it all stripped away because you wanted to date a convicted felon with five children that you met at a turkey giveaway.
He ended with “rest in peace nicki minaj (2008-2018)”
Another disappointed fan wrote;
“I have fought, defended and stood by Nicki Minaj for so long. I’m sorry, at this point it’s just not worth it. She is just – wow. She really loves rapists and pedophiles. Disgusting. I just cant be part of that anymore.”
Mason Elije wrote, you remember her?
“I think Nicki Minaj is at a point in her career where she’s tired, tired of opinions and tired of trying to make people happy so she’s being a rebel and living how she wants.”
