Nicki Minaj's fiance Kenneth Petty may be in a world of trouble. Yesterday, Kenneth went on Nicki's Instagram Live, and appeared to flash a handgun.

In the below image, you can see that Kenneth appears to have a handgun in his pocket. And the gun appears to have an extended magazine on it.

This is a HUGE problem for Kenneth, because he is a convicted felon, and as such - it is a federal crime for him to be in possession of a firearm.

Here's the image that's gone viral:

Kenneth Petty had a number of run-ins with the law in the past. He was a well known NY gangster for years, but he is believed to have changed his ways, and left crime behind.

Here are some of his mugshots, from his days in the streets:

Ever since the screenshot showing the alleged gun leaked, both Nicki and Kenneth have been going viral on all social media platforms.

According to Hollywood Life:

The rapper, who recently changed her Twitter display name from “Ms. Minaj” to ” Mrs. Petty”, revealed in late June that the couple obtained a marriage license. “I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness,” she said on her Queen Radio show. “It was so hard to get to a happy place. Now that I’m there I don’t want to compromise that for anyone or anything.” 

In the August 12 episode of her Queen Radio show, Nicki explained that since she was traveling, the pair had to “renew” their marriage license. “From that time, you have 90 days to get married. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days,” she said, leading fans to believe that the two may be married by the end of October.
