Nicki Minaj has had a pretty interesting year.
She has a new man in her life and yes, she confirmed it but a lot of her fans aren't happy about it because of his past.
His name is Kenneth Petty and he's a registered sex offender. Petty pled guilty in 1995 to the attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl. In case you were wondering, Nicki Minaj is very aware of this.
She jumped in the comments to defend her man explaining, "he was 15, she was 16 ... in a relationship. But go awf, internet, ya'll can't run my life. y'all can't even run y'all own life."
According to TMZ, Minaj and Petty have known each other for a very long time. They apparently started dating at 16 and sources say Minaj believe that Petty has matured since his prison day. She is believes he deserves a second chance to prove himself. Petty was apparently one of Minaj's first loves, hopefully it works out for them.
