In several interviews dating back to her early days, Nicki Minaj has always insisted that she had a tough upbringing having to deal with a drug-addicted father who was abusive. During Nicki’s recent promo run for Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, she stopped by Nightline and during that interview, she revealed that she wanted to “kill” her father when she was a child.
Nicki said, “I wanted to kill [my dad]. I used to wish he was dead … ‘We were afraid for my mother’s life because whenever he would have a real bad outburst he would threaten to kill her.”
Nicki also told a story about her father almost burning down their house.
Well, according to TMZ, Nicki’s father Omar is very upset by the accusations and says that she is grossly exaggerating. Omar admits he had anger issues when she was a child … but insists it NEVER reached the point Nicki described in her interview. Omar never knew Nicki felt this way about him — and he’s absolutely crushed she decided to air her grievances in the media.
Sounds to me like Nicki’s dad still can’t admit to some of the things he did while he was on drugs and alcohol.
