Nicki Minaj met her latest man Kenneth Petty, who went to prison for attempted rape and shooting a man, while handing out free turkeys in Queens.
According to the New York Sex Offenders database, Petty was convicted of attempted rape on April 5, 1995. Court records obtained by TMZ reveal that Petty was 16 at the time and his victim was a 16-year-old girl. The records also show that he used a sharp object when he tried to force the girl to have sex with him.
He served almost 4 years in New York state prison for the crime. He is now classified as a level 2 sex offender, indicating that he has a “moderate risk of repeat offense.”
Nicki herself admitted to her boyfriend’s crimes. On an Instagram photo of herself and Petty, she responded to a commenter: “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. Thank you boo.”
It’s nice to know that Nicki has always had impeccable taste in men.
According to source Nicki has known Petty for years and considers him one of her first loves. As I stated above, Kenny went to prison in the 90s for attempted rape and is also a registered sex offender, and he got out of prison in 2013 after serving 7 years for repeatedly shooting another man to death.
Nicki believes he’s changed and is no longer the rapist killer he used to be.
