How Long Have They Been Together?

Ms Minaj has been single for a time now after splitting from previous boyfriend Meek Mill in 2017.

Kenneth’s Convictions

Nicki’s new relationship has gained a lot of negativity in the press and on social media due to Petty’s past.

According to The Sun Petty was convicted of attempted rape in 1995 and served around four years in prison. He is now listed as a registered sex offender in the state of New York.

Kenneth also served seven years in prison from 2006-2013 after being convicted of manslaughter.
