The last few days have been up and down for Nicki Minaj. The music superstar hosted the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards and won Best Hip-Hop for “Super Freaky Girl” at the September 12 ceremony.
However, the drama involving her husband quickly overshadowed Nicki Minaj’s success at this year’s VMAs. Kenneth “Zoo” Petty started arguing with Cardi B’s husband Offset online.
This online feud apparently started after one of Kenneth Petty’s associates threatened Cardi B and Offset in a video. In response, Offset reportedly sent the man a direct message, which sparked more reaction from Petty.
As the story of the animosity spread, online commenters criticized Kenneth Petty for possibly inciting violence and incriminating himself. Others brought up the fact that Petty was convicted of attempted forcible rape in 1995.
This led to conversations on social media about Nicki Minaj’s marriage to a registered sex offender. Even Cardi B alluded to Kenneth Petty’s criminal history of sexual abuse as a reaction against a troll who attempted to spread a false narrative about her father.
It seems Nicki Minaj doesn’t want to appear bothered by the tension surrounding her partner. The forty-year-old Queen The album’s creator uploaded photos of herself, Kenneth Petty, and their son to her Instagram page on Monday (September 18).
Nicki Minaj and Cardi B have been feuding for years. Footage of Cardi throwing her shoe at Minaj at a 2018 New York Fashion Week event brought the deep-seated hostility to the forefront. Since then, the two rappers have engaged in dissensions both subliminal and direct.
