Who’s Nicki Minaj boyfriend Kenneth Petty? Wiki Bio

Kenneth Petty is best known for being the boyfriend of Nicki Minaj – he was born in Queens, New York City USA, on 7 April 1978, so under the zodiac sign of Aries and holding American nationality. His profession is not known, but he is a sex offender, and has been convicted of manslaughter.

Childhood and education

Kenneth grew up in a rather bad neighborhood, and started criminal activities at a very young age. He is trying to stay away from the media’s attention so not a lot is known about his family – his parents have allegedly been involved in criminal activities as well; they have two more kids besides Kenneth.

Kenneth attended high school in Queens, and was somewhat of a bad boy there – he was the kind of a person nobody wanted to mess with. He met Nicki Minaj there, and the two began dating long before she became the most popular female rapper in the entire world. It is not known whether or not Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend has managed to matriculate from high school.

Kenneth’s career

It is not known what kind of career Kenneth has built for himself throughout the years. He worked several jobs after quitting school so he could be able to buy his drugs and financially support himself – he is known to be smoking weed on a daily basis, while he hasn’t mentioned if he uses other drugs or not.

He and Nicki Minaj broke up as soon as he left high school, and didn’t begin dating again until more than 20 years later in 2018. Kenneth was ‘working the streets’ throughout the years, selling weed and possibly other narcotics as well. While he was arrested numerous times on various charges, in 2006 he was convicted of first-degree murder, and sentenced to spend seven years in jail. He left prison in 2013, and while some people believe that jail changed him and how he is no longer involved in criminal activities, others believe that he is the same man he was before.

Kenneth has tried making his way into the rap industry, as he was influenced and motivated by his girlfriend Nicki Minaj, but he didn’t make it and has apparently given up on this idea.
