Nicki Minaj Confirms Relationship With Kenneth Petty

But fans are concerned because he is a convicted sex offender.

Nicki Minaj celebrated her 36th birthday all weekend long with photos showing just how hard the superstar can still party. But one picture in particular caught everyone’s attention and a number of fans are concerned about her safety and well being.

Last month, Nicki posted photos on Instagram with her pal Kenneth Petty, which of course piqued everyone’s interest in this new man. But on her birthday weekend, Nicki seemed to let everyone in on a big secret: they’re more than just friends now. The “Barbie Dreams” star shared videos and photos from her celebratory weekend, including one shot of Kenneth and Nicki being very cuddly.

Her comment accompanying the photo where she’s draped around him was elusive and intriguing. They’re both wearing gold shoes and appear to be quite comfortable in each other’s arms.

“Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happens?…it’s no secret…that both of us…are running out of time…,” she said.

The superstar appeared to have a fantastic birthday weekend in the photo series and videos that showed her riding on the back of a jet ski and soaking up the sun’s rays. She shared a video of party attendees serenading her with the “Happy Birthday” song as she sat smiling and laughing while someone presents her with a big cake full of sparkler candles.

Nicki also shared a photo of just Kenneth staring off into the distance. Fans flocked to Kenneth’s Instagram account where he shared the same photo of himself and Nicki embracing and positioned it as his account’s profile pic, but Nicki downplayed the move, saying that the account supposedly was fake. Still, it left people wondering if a romance was indeed brewing.

But many of Nicki’s friends are worried about this particular relationship for the superstar and Kenneth. He was arrested on Sept. 16, 1994, when he was approximately 16 years old by the New York City Police Department Sex Offender Unit. According to that state’s sex offender registry, Kenneth was convicted of first degree attempted rape and had used a knife/cutting instrument during the attack. He was sentenced to 18 months to 54 months in a state prison.

But that wasn’t his only brush with the law. According to In Touch Weekly, the music industry professional also was found guilty of manslaughter in 2006 and spent seven years in prison.

Hopefully Nicki enjoyed her big birthday weekend and continues to live life to its fullest. Happy birthday Nicki!
