When Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty started going out, people were pretty worried that he would end up breaking her heart, or worse, due to his reputation. But despite the initial concerns, it looks like Nicki and Kenneth are in for the long run and not only this, but the female emcee’s friends are also warming up to him! One new insider report explains how Petty managed to win Nicki’s close ones over!
As you may remember, a few months ago when Minaj made her new relationship Instagram official, even fans expressed disappointment and worry due to Kenneth’s past!
After all, the man was convicted for manslaughter and also for attempted rape in the first degree back in 1955.
One source tells HollywoodLife that ‘When Nicki and Kenneth first got together there was a lot of backlash. No one really knew what to think of him, and a lot of people in Nicki’s life were worried. But Nicki wasn’t fazed. She knew she wanted to be with him and didn’t care what anyone had to say.’
Now, a few months later, ‘everyone in her life is starting to come around, Kenneth is winning everyone over. The way he treats Nicki, the way he looks at her — it’s obvious how much he loves her. And he’s so protective. She has plenty of security, but when they’re out in public together, Kenneth acts like her own personal bodyguard. He’d take a bullet for her, he’s a hundred percent devoted to Nicki.’
Minaj has been very open about her relationship with Petty, gushing over him and just how happy he makes her every time she gets the chance to do so!
Have you started to warm up to him yet or do you still think Petty is bad news for Nicki Minaj?
