Nicki Minaj has been flaunting her new BF all over the gram with pics from their romantic getaway for her 36th birthday.
As it turns out, the pair have a long history together... parts of which Nicki was trying to keep under wraps.
Kenneth Petty is actually an old flame from when Nicki was just a16-year-old living in Queens.
After some digging, it turns out this guy has a pretty shady past, serving time for manslaughter and is also a registered sex offender convicted of attempted rape.
Nicki is reportedly aware of Kenneth's troubled past, but she's confident he's matured since his time in prision. 'Nicki believes in second chances and has faith he'll be good to her.'
Nicki is now finally speaking out about the situation, and let's just say she seems...upset. The rapper responded to a commenter who came to her defense on Instagram, hitting back at everyone else in the process.
He was 15, she was 16 … in a relationship," she replied. "But go awf, Internet. Y’all can’t run my life. Y’all can’t even run y’all own life. Thank you boo.
