Nicki Minaj defends new boyfriend over past attempted rape conviction

Nicki Minaj has come out in defense of her new boyfriend Kenneth “Zoo” Petty who was convicted of attempted rape in the past.

Kenneth is a registered sex offender in New York. He was convicted in April 1995 of attempted rape in the first degree for an incident involving a 16-year-old girl in September 1994, according to online records from the New York Division of Criminal Justice Services.

According to The Blast, he also pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in the shooting death of a man named Lamont Robinson in 2002.

Confirming her relationship with Kenneth, the rapper took to Instagram to post a series of photos from her 36th birthday and Kenneth features in quite a number of them.

In one photo, she’s straddling him while another shows her wearing nearly nothing while in bed with him.

In another photo, she captioned “Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happens?…it’s no secret…that the both of us…are running out of time,” quoting Adele’s “Hello.”

Nicki responded to a fan in the comments, writing, “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.”
