Nicki Minaj is currently living her best life. The rapper recently announced that she and her husband Kenneth Petty are expecting a baby. This has been on Nicki’s list of goals for some time now. Unfortunately, after her announcement, fans raised a few concerns about her husband and his sordid past. “Ain’t the baby daddy a big pervo or something?” asked one follower. While some fans were confused others backed up the statement. Nicki married Petty in an intimate and secret ceremony back in the Fall of 2019, but their wedded bliss was short-lived.
News quickly broke that Petty was not a good guy. He was arrested and served time for a few crimes. He was involved with the rape of a girl when he was 15-years-old, he later plead guilty to a manslaughter charge for the murder of Lamont Robinson, who was gunned down. He was then on a supervised release program from 2013 to 2018. While Petty has a bit of a sketchy past Nicki let her fans know he wasn’t a bad guy, he just got wrapped up in bad things.
Fans still had a few valid questions for Nicki about her future plans when it comes to kid-friendly activities and the access or lack thereof that he will have. “How’s a convicted pedophile do anything with their child? They can’t go to school playgrounds ugh ?.” That’s right, the 42-year-old soon to be father is technically a convicted pedophile. Another follower commented attempting to clarify the odd situation that Petty found himself in at 15. “Nicki’s husband was setup by his girlfriend’s parents. He was 15 and she was 16 and they didn’t approve so they pressed charges against a child.”
Not many people were buying this, and it even sparked a debate amongst Nicki’s followers. Some wanted to know who the pickup and drop off duties would fall on seeing as Petty legally can’t be around children. Fortunately, the 37-year-old mom to be has never cared about what the haters had to say. Nicki announced her pregnancy early this week with four gorgeous photos showing off her bump. She labeled the first photo #preggers as she posed in a yellow curly wig and a bikini adorned in flowers. Nicki cradled her bump lovingly in all the photos.
In the second picture, she showed out in a blue wig styled in a top bun, she calls herself “chubble!!!” the third pic she poses on a baby pink couch (gender reveal?) and thanks to her fans for their support. “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes. ?” Nicki saved the best for last a beautiful “Virgin Mary” type photo shot by super photographer David LaChappelle. The “Queen” is overjoyed and clearly is not concerned with the hate her husband is getting.
