TMZ reports that Minaj has known Petty since they were teenagers and is “confident he’s matured.” According to the outlet, they first dated when she was 16 years old and living in Queens, New York City. She’s also referred to him as “one of her first loves.” Sources tell TMZ they still have “great chemistry” despite all the time and relationships that have passed since they first got together.

Back then, Kenneth was getting into all kinds of trouble in the streets. Eventually he was charged with killing a man in 2002.

Kenneth plead guilty to first-degree manslaughter in the shooting death of a man named Lamont Robinson and served seven years in prison after being sentenced to 10.

Petty is a level two registered sex offender in New York, which means he’s considered a “moderate risk of repeat offense” and will be required to register as a sex offender for life.

According to online records from the New York Division of Criminal Justice Services, Petty was convicted in April 1995 of attempted rape in the first degree for an incident that occurred in September 1994 involving a 16-year-old girl. He was sentenced to 18 to 54 months in prison, but it is unclear how much time he actually served.

Kenneth was released in May 2013, and had been on supervised release for five years, where he stayed out of trouble completely. 

Since being released in 2013 - Kenneth has transformed himself into a successful entertainment executive.
