Wendy Williams Shades Nicki Minaj’s Husband & Brother For Being Sex Offenders

Kenneth Petty and Jelani Maraj have both been convicted of sex-related crimes.

(AllHipHop News) While most of the celebrity news media was mainly just congratulating Nicki Minaj on her recent supposed nuptials to Kenneth “Zoo” Petty, Wendy Williams went a different direction with the story. The daytime talk show host took shots at Minaj’s cosmetic enhancements and reminded her audience of Petty’s past criminal convictions.

“Can you imagine a burgeoning belly with these burgeoning hips? I mean, the plastic of it all. She’s gonna have a big belly and she’s short and she’s got the boobs and the hips,” said Wendy about Nicki Minaj. “I don’t know what [Petty] does for a living. I just know that he did time in jail… he’s a sex offender. Well, she’s no stranger to that because her brother’s in jail for sex offending.”

The TV gossip queen continued, “Well, first-degree manslaughter. Now, [Petty] served seven years in prison, and he’s also a sex offender. Is a manslaughter a killer? Okay, so he’s a killer and a sex offender. Well, Nicki, congratulations.”

Petty, 41, is a level two registered sex offender in the state of New York after being convicted of attempted first-degree rape with a knife in 1995. In 2006, he pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter for a 2002 shooting death and served seven years in prison for that offense. 

Minaj’s brother, Jelani Maraj, was found guilty in Nassau County, New York of sexually assaulting his then 11-year-old stepdaughter on multiple occasions. State Supreme Court Justice Robert McDonald denied a motion to have the conviction overturned. Maraj is facing life in prison. Sentencing in that case is scheduled for November 18.
