Wendy Williams Slams Nicki Minaj For Marrying Kenneth Petty


Wendy Williams had a lot (and I mean A LOT) to say about Nicki Minaj's marriage.

While wrapping up the latest episode of the Wendy Williams Show, the talk show host unleashed her unfiltered thoughts about Nicki's husband, Kenneth Petty — who was recently arrested for not registering as a sex offender in California — and the legendary rapper's decision to marry him.

"Well apparently the way this show is going today, we did not have enough time to get to Nicki Minaj's [husband]," Wendy said before teasing one of the "Hot Topics" for Wednesday's (March 11) show. "But let me tell you something Nicki. That's going to be my first story tomorrow and I'm going to lead with this: You should've never married him because now you've ruined everything about what your brand could be."

"Again, you are never going to stand a chance when you are with a man who pulls a knife at rape point. A registered sex offender, you are never going to stand a chance with the public," Wendy added. "There's only one thing worse than touching children and pulling knives and that's murder. By the way, he did go to jail for manslaughter. Oh, I think I just did the story. No, get to digging. There's more on it. Everybody get to digging. Get to digging."

Kenneth recently registered as a sex offender in the state of California after he was arrested for failing to do so last week.

He is set to return to court next month for the federal case and he has to wear an ankle monitor until then, TMZ previously reported.

Kenneth's sex offender status stems from April 1995 when he was convicted of first-degree attempted rape. He reportedly used a sharp object when he tried to force his female victim to have sexual intercourse. Kenneth was 16 at the time and so was the victim. He served nearly four years in prison for the crime.

After being released, Kenneth was arrested again; this time for first-degree manslaughter. He went on to serve another seven years in prison before being released in 2013.

When news of Kenneth's criminal history first surfaced, Nicki came to her husband's defense on social media, writing, "He was 15, she was 16. In a relationship. But go awf Internet. Y'all can't ruin my life. Y'all can't even run y'all own life. Thank you boo."
