(AllHipHop News) Besides facing criticism for the lyric video to her single “Only,” Nicki Minaj has other issues mounting as well. According to Radar Online, the Young Money rapper suffered a huge drop in her credit rating after her social security number was mistakenly leaked.
Apparently, a website forgot to redact the private information when a 2003 booking report for Minaj (born Onika Maraj) was published earlier this month.
A New York City Police Department’s booking photo showed that the then 20-year-old Queens native was arrested for the misdemeanor charge of criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree. Nicki’s #SSN becoming public has apparently led to other people using the information.
“Nicki’s credit score dropped almost 100 points soon after, because there were many inquiries into her financial records,” a source told Radar. “The credit reporting agencies, detecting a lot of irregular activity, immediately notified Nicki’s camp.”
The source added that Nicki may have to get another social security number and the situation has been very stressful for the “Anaconda” performer.
While dealing with this financial problem, Nicki continues to move forward with the release of her third studio album. The Pinkprint is scheduled for release on December 15. She recently dropped the LPs’s fourth single “Bed of Lies”
