Social media has been dragging Nicki Minaj for her history of supporting alleged sex offenders. Tired of the misinformation, she’s speaking out to defend her man.
When Nicki was spotted with a new man on her arm, everyone wondered who he was. We were all sure, despite their dismissal, that Nicki and Lewis Hamilton were together. Instead of choosing the handsome millionaire Formula 1 driver, Nicki is riding with a convicted sex offender with a violent past. Talk about crying in a Nissan instead of a Phantom.
Nicki! You in danger, girl!
Kenneth Petty, Nicki’s new beau, is a registered sex offender convicted of attempted rape. Insisting its a complicated situation, Nicki says it stems from Petty dating the victim and her mother not approving. Arrested and charged with first-degree rape in April 1995, he and the victim were both 16.
In court documents obtained by RadarOnline, Petty used a “knife/cutting instrument” during the attempted rape. Carrying a sentence of 18-54 months, it’s unclear how much time was served. Even worse, Petty was charged with murder in April 2002 and was released in May 2013.
Nicki claims Petty is an old flame from her teens, but it’s unclear how much time they had together considering he’s spent so much of his life behind bars.
Who Said Dat?
Chinese Kitty, a castmate of Love & Hip Hop Miami, recently did a radio interview. But it wasn’t the interview that made waves, it was her IG Live segment afterward. Believing the cameras and mics were no longer recording, the crew began sharing celebrity details, mainly about Trina, Nicki, and Meek Mill.
While talking about her friendship with Nicki, a woman off-camera said to Chinese Kitty:
“I have a question: was that during the time she was covering? Because she had an issue with her butt shots? Oh, I know her.”
Chinese Kitty then starts laughing and the woman continues:
“My girlfriend, Renee that dates Adrian Broner the boxer, we all know one another. Meek, we know everybody. We all are friends. So Nicki Minaj had a problem with her butt shots, and you know about that story. So for a while she couldn’t have sex with Meek and that’s why she felt so insecure that he was f*cking somebody else. And that’s facts!”
When it comes to who that somebody was, Trina’s name came up, leaving her feeling some type of way. Not wanting to be a part of the drama, Trina let us know to keep her name out of our mouths PERIOD.
Go awf, sis! But did you notice she didn’t deny it? Whatever the case, Kitty felt like she needed to make amends with the Diamond Princess and apologized.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Share News of the Loss of Their Unborn Child
Early Thursday morning Chrissy Teigen and John Legend let the world know of the loss of their unborn child. In a heartfelt and heartbreaking post to social media, Teigen described her and husband John Legend’s “deep pain you only hear about.” She went on to talk about how the couple does not typically name their children “until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before (they) leave the hospital,” but somehow they fell on the name “Jack.”
The heartbreaking news comes just days after first being admitted to the hospital for what she described as heavy bleeding. However, two days ago, she assured fans that both her and baby were healthy and doing well. Teigen, no stranger to social media, continued to engage her following, giving brief updates along the way, when shortly after midnight she shared photos of her and John in the hospital cradling their newborn in the immediate aftermath.
While her husband has remained largely unproblematic and scandal-free, Teigen has been the frequent target of scathing criticism – much of which is completely valid. From her ridiculing Black hair, to her seemingly mocking intimate partner violence when she referenced Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez’s incident, Chrissy Teigen has been the focus of such harsh vitriol that she has threatened to quit social media altogether on multiple occasions. Sharing such personal news with the world may come as a surprise to many.
Overwhelmingly, however, the internet’s response has been positive and embracing. Celebrities and non-celebs alike have offered words of support to the couple as they go through this difficult time. See both the model’s post and the heartwarming responses to it below.

Actor Chadwick Boseman, best known for his role as King T’Challa in the box office smash “Black Panther” passed away from colon cancer Friday.
The actor was first diagnosed with stage 3 cancer in 2016, but remained active in his career with much of his work being released post-diagnosis. A statement from his family confirmed that he continued to work despite his cancer progressing, befitting a man who brought America’s first Black superhero to the silver screen.

The tributes continue to flood in as news of his passing continues to ripple through. Read the official statement from his family below.

Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV.
A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.
It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.
He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side.
The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
When White Privilege Isn’t Enough to Get Into USC: Lori Loughlin Sentenced to 2 Months in Prison
Actress Lori Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison today for her role in the college admissions scandal. If you haven’t followed the 10-month-long saga, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, a fashion designer, plead not guilty to a bribery charge in a college admission scam back in 2019… Because white privilege just isn’t what it used to be.
The two later plead guilty to paying William Rick Singer, the mastermind, $500,000 to guarantee their two daughters a spot at the University of South Carolina.
Loughlin’s sentence came several hours after her husband’s five-month sentence. According to the US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Giannulli’s five-month sentence also came with a whopping fine of $250,000 and 250 hours of community service.
“[Giannulli] engaged more frequently with Singer, directed the bribe payments to USC and Singer, and personally confronted his daughter’s high school counselor to prevent the scheme from being discovered, brazenly lying about his daughter’s athletic abilities,” US Attorney Andrew Lelling of Massachusetts said in the memo released on Tuesday. “Loughlin took a less active role, but was nonetheless fully complicit, eagerly enlisting Singer for a second time for her younger daughter, and coaching her daughter not to ‘say too much’ to her high school’s legitimate college counselor, lest he caught on to their [fradulent activity].
