Nicki Minaj is facing backlash from fans after posting a picture with rumored boyfriend Kenny Petty on Instagram Sunday.
According to The Blast, Petty is a registered sex offender who was convicted for the attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl.
In the photo posted by Minaj, the 36-year-old “Barbie Dreams” rapper has her leg wrapped around her beau with the caption, “Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happens…It’s no secret … that both of us … are running out of time.”
According to the NYCPD Sex Offender Unit database, Petty was convicted in 1995 for attempted rape in the first degree for an incident that occurred in 1994. Per the database, cops noted that the offense was “sexual intercourse” and that a “knife/cutting instrument” was used as a weapon during the crime. He was sentenced to 18 to 54 months in prison, but it is unclear how much of that time Petty actually served.
One fan wrote on Twitter, “Nicki Minaj deadass dating a CONVICTED r*pist…this y’all queen of rap?”
Minaj’s brother Jelani Maraj is a convicted child rapist. She also worked with rapper Tekashi69, who previously pled guilty in a sexual misconduct case that involved him posting video online of a 13-year-old girl involved in a sex act.
Another commenter pointed out the link between Minaj and the three men, writing, “So Nicki Minaj continues to promote her ‘relationship’ with the convicted CHILD RAPIST Kenneth ‘Zoo’ Petty👀 …. when is she ever gonna learn?! She loves and supports 3 pedophiles now!! She’s a lost cause!”
