Love may be in the air for ‘Queen’ creator Nicki Minaj, but the rapstress is being royally served helpings of criticism thanks to the unveiling of her new boyfriend, Kenneth Petty.
Why the cause for pause? He’s a registered sex offender. Details inside:
Shortly after Minaj revealed the pictures above on her official Instagram page, Internet hounds began sniffing for info on the mystery man. Their findings concluded the man featured – Petty (who also works in the music industry) – is a registered sex offender due to offenses stemming from the early 90s.
As the word made its round, the Grammy nominee – fed up with the chatter – opted to clap back:
Petty, 40, is not only a registered sex offender in New York, but was also reportedly convicted on manslaughter charges in 2006.
