Despite the controversy hovering around Nicki Minaj’s new relationship with a convicted rapist, who is also a murderer, the rapper is reportedly planning on getting married and starting a family with him.
Sources close to the “Queen” rapper told TMZ that Nicki and Kenneth Petty have already had the marriage and baby talk after only a couple months of dating.
One of the insiders added that Nicki is serious about the prospect of marrying Kenneth and having his kids because she believes he’s that good a man and doesn’t care about past crimes.
Kevin ‘Zoo’ Petty was convicted of 1st-degree attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl in 1995. He served between 18 and 54 months for that crime, and he is a registered sex offender in New York.
He also served time for killing a man in 2002. He pleded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in the shooting death of a man named Lamont Robinson in 2002.
The complaint claims that on April 27, 2002 at 12:30 AM, Petty shot Robinson multiple times. Robinson was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
Authorities originally charged Petty with 2nd-degree murder, but his lawyer got the charge reduced to manslaughter in a plea deal.
Petty pled guilty to the manslaughter charge in exchange for a 10 year prison sentence in March 2006. He was released from prison in May 2013 after serving 7 years. He was on supervised parole for 5 years, until May of this year.
