Nicki Minaj oh so casually dropped a bomb on the latest episode of Queen Radio—that she and her man, Kenneth “Zoo” Petty, are ready to get married. They even got a marriage license! All that’s left is to keep a keen eye out for the wedding date. Until then, who is the guy who gets to call himself Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend? They’ve been dating for a whole minute, and it looks like he’s going to be around a while. A good enough to reason to take a look at this Kenneth Petty wiki.

Kenneth Petty Is a Registered Sex Offender

Kenneth “Zoo” Petty was born on April 7, 1979 and hails from Queens, New York. Nicki Minaj revealed she’s dating him in 2018, but her fans think he’s bad news due to his sex offender status.

Petty has a disturbing criminal history, including the attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl in 1994. He went to prison for almost four years for the crime and was registered as a level two sex offender in New York, indicating that he is at moderate risk of committing the crime again.


But that’s not the only thing that has raised a few brows among the Barbz. Petty has been arrested several times over the years, including for first-degree manslaughter after he shot a man. He served seven years for the manslaughter charge.

Last year, Minaj defended her boyfriend on the attempted rape charges in an Instagram comment writing: “He was 15, she was 16 … in a relationship,” she replied. “But go awf, Internet. Y’all can’t run my life. Y’all can’t even run y’all own life. Thank you boo.”

Minaj and Petty Used to Date in Their Teens

Nicki Minaj made her relationship with Petty Instagram official in December 2018, around the time the felon began sporting a huge neck tattoo dedicated to her. It seemed like they had been dating for a while before taking the next step. It’s not known how long they were together before making their romance public, but their relationship isn’t exactly new.


According to several reports, pre-fame Minaj, who is about four years younger than Petty, dated him for a while when she was 16. Minaj has since had very public relationships with Safaree Samuels, Meek Mills, and Nas.

They rekindled their relationship and it looks like it’s serious. Minaj is keen to tie the knot with Petty, as she revealed on Queen Radio that they got a marriage license.

“We did get our marriage license,” the former American Idol judge said. “I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness. It was so hard to get to a happy place. Now that I’m there, I don’t want to compromise that for anyone or anything.”

Petty also stars in the very explicit music video for Nicki Minaj’s newest song, “Megatron.”
