According to TMZ, Petty is a registered sex offender.

A day after making it Instagram official, the rapper continues to flaunt her relationship with Kenneth "Zoo" Petty, a registered sex offender in the state of NY. In April 1995, the 40-year-old was convicted of first-degree attempted rape and served roughly four years in a NY state penitentiary.

After pleading guilty to the manslaughter charge in 2006, Petty served seven years of a 10-year sentence. He was, at the time, 16, and was sentenced to between 18 to 54 months in state prison and served nearly four years in a New York State prison. He was reportedly released in 2013, and likely went on being closely supervised for five more years.

In the pics, Nicki is seen wrapping her arms and leg around Petty. At the end of their trip, she posted photos of Petty along with a defiant caption.

Doctors managed to deliver the baby in an emergency Cesarean section after the attack and were fighting to stabilize him. In recent months, Abbas has threatened to abrogate agreements between the Palestine Liberation Organization and Israel.

"I hate to say it, but after #NickiMinaj defended her brother (sex offender) and 6ix9ine (sex offender), I can't honestly say I'm surprised to hear she's now defending her new boyfriend- another sex offender". Petty's trial lasted for several years.

Another social media user echoed the same disappointment.

Whether you're a fan of Minaj's or not, her affiliation with someone with a violent criminal history is enough to make anyone concerned.

"He was 15, she was 16 ... in a relationship", she commented. Y'all can't even run y'all own life.
