It looks like Nicki’s new boyfriend has a bit of a record hunty…and by record we mean he’s served some HARD time for some pretty hefty charges. The gag IS—it seems like Nicki could care less!
The “Good Form” rapper confirmed her relationship over the weekend, with a new mystery man she’s been seen out with. After posting a few headless pics she finally posted this pic of the two of them while on vacation for her 36th birthday:
Well it seems her loyal fans, the Barbz are NOT here for this relationship. According to The Blast, the man, Kenny Petty was not only convicted for attempting to rape a 16-year-old girl (he’s now a registered sex-offender btw), but he ALSO spent time behind bars for shooting another man. She took to her IG page and posted a video of the two on BAE-cation chillin on a jetski to let people know she’s not on her Ella Mai—AKA she ain’t trippin.

The short version is: Petty pled guilty to first-degree manslaughter in the 2002 shooting of a man named Lamont Robinson who later died in the hospital. He was originally charged with second degree murder, but cut a plea deal and the charge was brought down to manslaughter. In 2006, he plead guilty and was sentenced to 10 years, of which he served seven. He was released on supervised release in May of 2015, for five years which ended this May.
He was also reportedly convicted of attempted in rape in the first degree in 1995 and was sentenced to 18 to 54 months in prison, but it’s unclear how much time he ended up serving.
Nicki posted another pic of her and bae a few hours ago and well…she’s trying to set the record straight. Apparently he was 15 and the girl was 16. Again this was back in 95′. In the words of Nicki “Ya’ll can’t run my life. Y’all can’t even run y’all own life.” BLOOP BLOOP.
