However Minaj has been widely criticized for becoming engaged to convicted felon Kenneth “Zoo” Petty. 

The “Megatron” artist slammed critics who have cast doubt on her life choices during her Queen Radio show. 

“When a person is with a n**** that loved them before they had a dime in their pocket?” the Grammy nominated artist said.

“How do you not understand that? How do you not understand happiness versus clout? How f***ing dare you talk about lowering standards,” the Barbie Dreams artist went on to say.

Minaj insisted she was happy Petty is not famous in his own right.

Her beau’s criminal rap sheet is disturbing to say the least. One of his felonies includes the attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl in 1994 when he was 16.

He went to prison for almost four years for the crime and was registered as a level two sex offender in New York.

He has also been arrested for manslaughter for his involvement in the deadly shooting of a man.

Petty grew up in Queens, New York just like his girlfriend Minaj. It is where the pair first met before Minaj hit the big time.

They began a relationship when she was only 16 and he was 21.

New York’s age of consent is 17.

The “Anaconda” rapper suggested she was engaged to Petty on her verse on Chance The Rapper’s song, “Zanies And Fools.”

She also changed her Twitter name to Mrs Petty in August and often refers to him as her ‘Ken to her Barbie’.

Minaj also sparked rumors she was pregnant by Petty on the track.

“He the Clyde to my Bonnie, ’bout to walk down the aisle and be a mommy,” she raps
