(AllHipHop News) Nicki Minaj's relationship has thrust her main man into the spotlight, along with his criminal record.
Nicki recently went public and acknowledged she was dating a man from her past, named Kenny "Zoo" Petty.
The rap star was the subject of intense criticism after Zoo's rap sheet hit the Internet and revealed he was registered sex offender
Zoo served four years in prison after he was convicted of rape at the age of 15. He also served over seven years in prison for shooting and killing a man back in March of 2002.
Now, the details surrounding his rape case are trickling out to the public, and they are very graphic and violent.
Cops say Zoo put what the girl believed was a gun to her back on a street in Queens, and then forced her up to his apartment.
That's when he overpowered her on the bed and raped her.
When the girl tried to escape, Zoo held a knife to the girl's stomach and continued to rape her. The teen managed to escape and Zoo was eventually hit with 5 felony charges.
He pleaded down to one charge - rape in the 1st degree - and was sent to prison.
None of this seemed to bother Nicki Minaj, but she did become flustered over reports surrounding her choice of man and even threatened to sue the host of Daily Mail TV.
