A Not So Pleasant Minaj À Trois
By: Alyssa Naumann
Everyone hates the awkward run in with their ex for obvious reasons. That run in got even worse for Nicki Minaj after seeing her ex, Meek Mill. The two ran into each other at Maxfield, a high-end clothing store in West Hollywood. Nicki was with her husband, Kenneth Petty, who ended up in a screaming match with Meek Mill. Nicki’s reps say that Meek Mill instigated the confrontation by giving Nicki a death stare as soon as she entered the store.
The glaring look from Meek Mill led to the screaming match, where Kenneth and Meek Mill yelled at each other calling one another a “p***y n***a.” It was also heard that Nicki yelled “you can’t get over me!” to Meek Mill. While Nicki and her reps side of the story is that Meek Mill started the argument and he is still obsessed with Nicki, Meek Mill claims that the couple approached him in the store, starting the fight. However, with more sources backing Nicki and Kenneth, the odds are leaning in their favor.
With the fight going public, people have been looking into some of Meek Mill’s lyrics, to see if he is really still “obsessed” with Nicki. In one song, Meek Mill raps “This s**t beyond me, you was supposed to be my Beyoncé, now you this n***a fiancé?!” Of course, most of Meek Mill’s fans assume these lyrics are about Nicki moving on. He later denied it on Twitter, saying he is on his 6th girl in the past 2 years and to let him live.
Meek Mill and Nicki broke up in 2017, due to communications problems according to an E! News source. The insider said that the couple fought on and off, sometimes about some topics that really upset Nicki. While at the time there was speculation of the two getting back together in the future, Nicki clearly seemed to have moved on now. The rapper married Petty in October of 2019, after just a short time dating.
During Nicki and Petty’s time dating, Petty’s criminal history came out. He is registered as a Level 2 sex offender on New York State’s Sex Offender Registry. At 16, Petty was convicted of attempted first-degree rape for just under four years. In 2006, he went back to prison for first-degree manslaughter, serving seven years. When Petty’s criminal history blew up, Nicki backed him up on Instagram, so the couple must have already talked about Petty’s past.
Nicki has moved on from Meek Mill and now seems happy with her new husband. With Meek Mill expecting his first child with his girlfriend Milano Di Rouge, you would think he too has moved on from his old relationship with Nicki. The death stares and screaming match from this past weekend doesn’t make it seem like he is past Nicki though.
