Nicki Minaj Dated Her New Boyfriend Back When She Was 16-Years-Old

Kenneth Petty isn’t a new entity in Nicki Minaj‘s life. According to TMZ, Nicki and Petty were an item back when she was 16-years-old and living in Queens. It’s reported that she feels comfortable with his sex offender status because she believes he’s changed his life since being imprisoned.

Petty is said to be ONE of Nicki’s first loves and it’s pretty obvious that she is fully invested in his newfound maturity. Onika took to Instagram recently to defend her beloved’s previous rape conviction.

“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.”

TMZ also reports that back in 1995, Petty was 16 years old and forced another 16-year-old girl to have sex with him by threatening her with an undisclosed sharp object. He subsequently served 4 years in prison. In 2013, Petty was sentenced to another 7 years in prison for manslaughter after shooting a man.

It said that Nicki and Kenneth still have lover’s chemistry and those around her say they haven’t seen her this happy in years.
