Rumor Has It Nicki Minaj Is Allegedly Dating A Registered Sex Offender...

The female rapper and a convicted rapist?

Just last week, Queens-bred femcee Nicki Minaj was spotted sporting a new rumored beau and a huge rock that spun the rumor mill among the Barbz out of control. Since then, it appears that someone unearthed some dirt on the mysterious suitor seen with the rapper. According to Bossip, his name is Kenneth “Zoo” Petty, a 40-year-old father of five, who also is a convicted rapist.

His criminal past and mugshots are public record. Petty was convicted of first-degree rape of a 16-year-old girl in 1995. However, the story doesn’t end there. It’s also been revealed that just a week prior to him being spotted with the “Barbie Dreams” emcee, he was in a relationship with a woman named Noelle. In a since-deleted tweet, an user under the handle, “Arii_Safarii_” said, “The 40 year old bum rapist with 5 kids that @NICKIMINAJ is f**king real name is Kenneth "Zoo" Petty... Every one in QUEENS knows Noelle and Kenneth were just together before Nicki came to pass out Turkeys.”

  • According to Ari, Petty’s girlfriend slid into Nicki’s DMs to expose Petty and his scheme to secure the bag.

  • The allegations had Nicki's minions shook...

  • As of now, the dating rumors are mere speculation.
