Nicki Minaj’s Sex Offender Boyfriend Was ‘One Of Her First Loves’ From Years Ago…

This ain’t it, Nicki Minaj

The 36-year-old rapper has been courting controversy lately after it was publicly revealed that her new boyfriend, Kenneth “Zoo” Petty, is a registered sex offender previously convicted of attempted rape.

But that’s not all he is — turns out there’s a long history with Nicki here, too.

Petty, who first spent time in New York state prison in the late 1990s after being convicted of first-degree attempted rape back in 1995, goes back a LONG way with Minaj, all the way back to when the two were both growing up in Queens.

Per TMZ, Minaj first had a relationship with Petty when she was 16 years old, well before the fame and fortune… and she still calls him “one of her first loves” because of that nostalgic old connection.

Nicki clearly knows about Petty’s troubled past, and the whole registered sex offender/convicted attempted rapist thing — but per that source, she apparently believes so strongly in second chances that she’s willing to overlook all that and move forward with Petty.

That’s all good and fine, of course, until you realize it’s not just the rape conviction hanging over his head… Petty also copped a guilty plea over the shooting death of a man named Lamont Robinson back in 2002.

The charge in that case was originally supposed to have been second degree murder, but it was downgraded to manslaughter after negotiations — and, again, Petty owned up to it and did more than a decade of time for it. He was released in 2013 — all according to The Blast.

Look, second (and third… and maybe fourth…) chances are fine if you understand what you’re getting yourself into when you hand ’em out like this… that’s Nicki’s call, and she’ll have to answer for it as a public figure dealing with all this.

Just sayin’ it makes more sense that she’d be so forgiving now that we know these two have had chemistry together for a LONG time. Old love dies hard?!

What do y’all think about all this, Perezcious readers??? What’s Nicki doing?!

Bride-To-Be Forces Wedding Guests To Dress Based On Weight — Then Threatens To Throw A ‘Polygraph Party’ To Find Out Who Exposed Her!

Wedding planning can make even the most spiritually aligned people turn into complete sociopaths.

Like this bride-to-be (not pictured, definitely not Anne Hathaway from Bride Wars), who apparently demanded that her guests dress in bizarrely specific colorful outfits coordinated by their weight — and, after her dress code went viral, threatened to throw a “Polygraph Partyâ€� to determine which of her dear friends exposed her on social media.

In the now viral Facebook post, the unidentified woman shared with the guests to her 2019 Hawaii wedding a “very specific� dress code that she promised would “create an incredible visual effect� and make their synchronized dancing on the beach “really pop.� She added:

“Remember, the venue is extremely upscale, and we want to be looking our absolute BEST ladies and gents��please, if you look like trash, so will we.�

She proceeded to detail a dress code that listed everything on the fashion spectrum, from Burberry scarves to… soda hats.

Per the post, women between 100 and 160 lbs. were instructed to wear a green velvet sweater, orange suede pants, a Burberry scarf and Christian Louboutin heels; women over 160 lbs., however, were to wear ALL BLACK. As for the men between 100 and 200 lbs., a purple “fuzzy� jacket, a soda hat, black pants and glow sticks (?) would do; men who weighed more than 200 lbs. were to wear camouflage and black sneakers.

The post immediately went viral on Reddit, with users scratching their heads over what “incredible visual effect� this couple was even trying to pull off.

To make matters more tragic and hilarious, the bride-to-be eventually caught wind of her dress code being mocked by the internet. She then, of course, proceeded to write a follow up message to her guests to let them know how “crushed, betrayed, [and] saddened� she was.

She wrote that she would be hosting a “Polygraph Party� to find the social media “snitch� who betrayed her trust, adding that she and her fiance “bought a real polygraph test for $99 on Amazon� and were determined to find “the rat who did this.�

After the testing portion of the party, she said guests would be free to “celebrate with drinks and appetizers.â€� Anyone who is unable to attend the Polygraph Party is naturally “presumed guilty unless you can provide a valid excuse.â€� It’s also said she offered a $100 reward to anyone with intel on who might have snitched.

As for the social media snake, the bride-to-be claimed she would not retaliate — just “simply cut all ties and communicationâ€� and sh*t talk them for eternity.

Later explaining why the dress code was so important, the woman reminded her guests that she and her fiance were “certified spiritual healers� and that each color represented a belief they held dear to their hearts.

The black and camo outfits she assigned the plus size guests to wear, for example, “represents the aura of the devil that we must shoo away.â€� She allegedly said that beliefs like these — fatter people being the devil — were as sacred as the traditions that one would see at “an Indian person’s wedding.â€�

These remarks are so ridiculous, we’re honestly not sure if it’s some comedic genius portraying a bridezilla or the real deal. If it is real… we can only pray one of the guests is brave enough to post pics from this wedding.

P.S. Here’s a meme that’s going around because of it:

Thomas Markle Says Daughter Meghan Markle Is ‘Demanding But Never Rude,’ Even Though She ‘Won’t Speak To Me’

Embattled Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle is going through a few sustained weeks of bad press related to her supposed temperament and personality… and her dad sure isn’t making things much better.

That’s right! Thomas Markle is out speaking to the media again, and even though he probably believes he’s helping, he sure ain’t doin’ much to support his daughter during this little bump in the road.

Related: Are Meghan And Kate Middleton Still Feuding, Or What??

Speaking to The Mail On Sunday this weekend, Thomas revealed his surprise over the alleged feud and lasting rift between Meghan and Kate Middleton that’s been reported across the globe the last few weeks.

While admitting he hasn’t spoken to his daughter in months, Thomas told the outlet:

“I don’t recognize this person. The Meghan I know was always sweet, kind, generous. She was always demanding but never rude.”

He continued on, too, telling the publication that he made sure to bring Meghan up to appreciate those working behind the scenes — whether in show business, or around her in life:

“Meghan grew up on set. I taught her to have respect for the crew. They can make you look good or awful … I don’t pretend to know what she’s like now.”

Hmmm… this all could be kind of insightful, but that last part really nails it, doesn’t it?!

After all, the man openly admits he hasn’t spoken to his daughter in months, and it’s no secret that the pair hasn’t been close for a long, long time that goes back well beyond when they even were speaking a little bit…

So while recent reports may be somewhat out of character from the Meghan of the past, how could Thomas even know… anything at all?!

Related: Meghan & Prince Harry Soon To Enjoy New Digs!

He self-sabotages throughout that interview with The Mail, too, later revealing that he even hand-delivered a letter to Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, asking why he can’t reach his daughter:

“I even hand-delivered a letter to Doria asking her why our daughter won’t speak to me. I have sent several texts. Her number hasn’t changed and they haven’t bounced back. I’ve pleaded with her to pick up the phone. I wrote her a two-page letter and sent it by certified mail via her representative in Los Angeles. I asked her why she was believing the lies. I have made dozens of attempts to reach my daughter via text and letters, but she and Harry have put up a wall of silence. I have been frozen out and I can’t stay silent.”

We know that last part is true… **rolls eyes**

But seriously, Perezcious readers, what do U think about all this?! Thomas knows every time he speaks about Meghan, the world will listen… even when he has nothing insightful to say!!

Ugh!!!

Offset Just Tweeted That He Misses Cardi B — And Twitter Is DRAGGING Him!

Offset finally came to his senses, it looks like… but it may be too late!!!

Fighting Child Support Payments, Chief Keef Reveals He Actually Has NINE Kids!

Who knew Chief Keef had NINE children?!

The rapper was known to have five children, right up until he showed up in court this week to fight child support payments, where he revealed FOUR more new children in court docs!

Related: Tekashi 6ix9ine Allegedly Involved On Attempted Hit On Chief Keef

The four children — all from different mothers — are all under the age of five years old, and all the mothers are seeking child support from the rapper and (prolific) father, per TMZ.

Those new court docs are also revealing that Keef is supposed to pay each woman $564 a month in child support, beginning in January.

That might be difficult, though, considering the Love Sosa rapper claims he makes about $9,000 a month… while also having about $9,000 in expenses.

Hmmm…

What do U think about this little revelation, Perezcious readers?! That’s a lot of Christmas gifts to go buy!! Ha!!

Donald Trump’s Chief Of Staff, John Kelly, Will Be Leaving The White House This Month

After weeks and weeks of endless speculation, we finally have an answer…

John F. Kelly, the retired Marine general who became Donald Trump‘s unlikely Chief of Staff in the White House last year, is finally leaving his position after a tumultuous last few months trying to keep the President in control.

Related: Watch Donald Trump Get Lost… A LOT!

Trump himself made the announcement of Kelly’s imminent departure on the White House lawn on Saturday afternoon, telling reporters (below):

“John Kelly will be leaving — I don’t know if I can say ‘retiring,’ but he’s a great guy. John Kelly will be leaving at the end of the year.â€�

Hmm… Kelly has long been seen in some circles as the one person who (tried to) keep Trump in check and avoid the President’s poor instincts and bad impulses.

Now that Kelly will be gone by the end of the year, though… well, don’t be surprised if 2019 is as crazy (or crazier) than 2018, y’all!!!

Here’s Why Pete Davidson Blocked Ariana Grande On Social Media…

Pete Davidson doesn’t know Ariana Grande any more — at least as far as social media is concerned!

As we’ve been reporting this week, Pete has officially blocked Ariana on social media now nearly two months after the pair called off their engagement and ended their relationship.

Related: Tina Fey Just Wants To Be Involved!

But now, we’re learning more about what went into the alleged blocking, and why Pete decided to clear out his social media — and, in turn, his mind.

An insider just confirmed to Us Weekly that Davidson DID block the pop star, adding (below):

“Pete is trying to distance himself from her narrative for his health.â€�

Ahhh…

Pete hasn’t been shy about discussing mental health and self-care, of course — just the other day, he opened up in an alarming and very personal post about bullying and suicide.

Let’s just hope that the next few months are easier for Pete than the last few have been!
