RIHANNA fans weren’t too happy as she posed with Nicki Minaj, her son, and the rapper’s husband Kenneth Petty despite his sex offender past.
Kenneth was sent to prison in 1994 after he was convicted of attempted rape.
Nicki, 38, took to Twitter share to share various photos alongside the Umbrella hitmaker.
In the snaps, Kenneth, Nicki, and their son, who turns one soon, sit on a couch next to Rihanna, 33, and her boyfriend A$AP Rocky.
In another photo, Nicki poses without Kenneth or her son, as she smiles near Rihanna and other members of the Fenty founder’s family.
“Rih’s family was just as beautiful & down to earth as her,” Nicki captioned, adding, “Caribbean Girls Run It.”
The Anaconda rapper also posted a photo of just her and Kenneth, 43, with their baby boy.
Despite the happy photos, fans weren’t too elated at all about Rihanna posing with Kenneth, as they made their opinions known in the comments section.
One person wrote: “Oh no Rihanna on the chill with Nicki and her rapist husband…oh no,” while another added, “Not Rihanna in a pic with Nicki’s rapist/sex offender husband.”
They kept pouring in, as one chimed in, “Rihanna really out here taking pictures with Nicki’s sex offender husband…”
Others compared the situation to Kanye West hanging out with DaBaby despite his recent homophobic comments.
They wrote: “Hey all those people mad at Kanye for having Dababy at his show – Hope y’all feel that way about Rihanna being around Nicki husband.”
KENNETH’S SHOCKING CRIMES
All the chaos comes due to Kenneth’s lengthy criminal record, including serving an 18 to 54-month sentence for attempted rape.
The music industry professional was arrested and later convicted for committing “sexual intercourse” with a 16-year-old on Sept. 6, 1994 – later learned to be a woman named Jennifer Hough.
The Sexual Registry suggests he used a “knife/cutting instrument” during the attempted rape.
Last month, Kenneth sued in order to get his name off New York’s Sex Offender Registry, claiming someone else had signed the documents while he was in prison.
Kenneth filed papers against the state’s Criminal Justice Services division to clear his name from the registry because he claims he wasn’t able to plea his case back in October 2004 while he was serving out a prison sentence.
He argued the “Kenny Petty” signature on documents agreeing to appear for a registry hearing is a forgery.
Kenneth was arrested back in 2020, by US Marshals after he failed to register as a sex offender when he relocated to his new home of California a year before.
It doesn’t stop there, as Nicki and her man are now being sued for allegedly harassing the woman who accused him of rape in 1994.
Kenneth also spent seven years behind bars after being found guilty of manslaughter in 2006.
He pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter following the deadly 2002 shooting of a man named Lamont Robinson.
He was released in May 2013 on supervised release for five years until May 2018.
