Nicki Minaj‘s new boyfriend served four years in prison for sexual assault, and the alleged details of the crime, and his actions, are truly horrifying.
According to court records from Kenny Petty‘s 1994 rape case, obtained by The Blast, the 16-year-old victim explained to cops a terrifying situation in which she was allegedly abducted and violently raped by Petty.
The female victim told police that on September 16, 1994 in Queens, NY, she was walking down the street when Petty came up behind her and “placed a hard circular object” against her back and “made a clicking sound.” The victim believed Petty had a handgun against her body, and he instructed her to “keep walking.”
The two walked to an address down the street, and she claims Petty forced her upstairs into his bedroom by pushing her from behind with what she believed to be a handgun.
Once inside Petty’s room, the victim claimed he “laid his weight on top … pinched her sides and squeezed her neck causing her to sustain bruises and pain.” She then claimed Petty “forced his penis” into her vagina.
The victim claims she tried to escape, but Petty “brandished a knife” and held it against her stomach, telling her “she could not leave.” The victim claims she eventually struck Petty with a plastic bottle and escaped.
She reported the incident to police, and that same day they responded to Petty’s home and arrested him. Police claim he questioned, “what am I being arrested for,” while claiming, “I didn’t do anything.”
When the girl was brought up, Petty told police he had not seen her that day, but then claimed he had seen her at the bus stop and had a conversation with her. He says after speaking with the girl, he just went home and fell asleep, but also admitted he had slept with the girl before.
Petty was charged with 5 crimes, rape in the 1st degree, sexual abuse in the 1st degree, unlawful imprisonment in the 2nd degree, assault in the 2nd degree and criminal possession of a weapon in the 4th degree.
He later pled down and was convicted of attempted rape in the 1st degree, and served 4 years in prison. Petty is still a registered sex offender, and must regularly check in for updated location information and photos as a warning to the public.
Minaj has staunchly defended her new boyfriend, and even spoke on the rape, claiming “he was 15, she was 16 … in a relationship,” adding, “But go awf, internet, y’all can’t run my life. y’all can’t even run y’all own life.” It’s unclear if Minaj knows all the details and allegations of the crime.
As we reported, the rape sentence wasn’t Petty’s only hard time, as he also served 7 years over the shooting death of a man.
