And just what is Nicki Minaj upset with Wendy Williams over, you ask? Well, you must have been watching Wendy’s “Hot Topics” segment of her show where she recently went in on Minaj and her new husband, Kenneth Petty. You can check out what both Nicki and Wendy had to say via the player above.
The bottom line is that Williams openly mocked Minaj’s relationship with Petty, who she described as a “killer” and a “sex offender.” Petty’s past criminal history is a point of concern for some of the Barbz (and clearly Wendy), but Nicki has since made it quite clear that “she’s not afraid to retaliate by using her haters’ dirty laundry as a weapon,” reports E!.
So, the retaliation has begun. The first move was made by Nicki on her Queen Radio podcast. She called Wendy “demonic” and “vicious” and then took aim at her scandalous split from Kevin Hunter.
“It’s not about doing your job,” Minaj said. “There are people who report the news and there are people who do it with an evil intent in their heart, viciousness. And I pray for you because I know you’re hurting and I know you must be sick and humiliated.”
Lord Child, Madame Minaj was just getting started. She added:
“I didn’t know that in our society, you have to be plagued by your past. I didn’t know that people can’t turn over a new leaf. I didn’t know that your viciousness and evilness was this deep-rooted.”
The rapper then spoke on the rumors that Kevin was unfaithful to Wendy and even welcomed a baby with another woman during their marriage. And damn, she came with it!
“When a woman isn’t really being loved at home, the viciousness is a different type,” Nicki said. “So I really wanted to pray for you today, because look at where you are now in your life. Look at what age you are. You’re sat up there being vicious all this time, and paid for that man’s mistress all these years. You paid for her shopping sprees, you paid for her hotels, you probably even paid for her GYN bills, you paid to have that baby delivered, hoe.”
“How you doin’, stupid?” she added, making light of Wendy’s signature catchphrase. And nope, it didn’t end there. Nicki concluded the rant by saying …
“I know we’re human first, we’re human before we’re celebrities, we’re human before we’re personas. And I know you must have gone through a lot. But you are demonic, and that’s why this stuff unfolded. If I were you, I would go and pray, ask for forgiveness. You can report the news—people do it all the time—without the level of viciousness and trying to play dumb and doing all this nonsense.”
And with that, Minaj was done. Now, in case you don’t have the specifics about M Minaj and Petty, they got married in a secret/private ceremony in LA in October. The reality is that he is a registered sex offender in New York and reportedly was convicted of attempted rape in 1995. Minaj has defended Petty, saying the attempted rape charge stemmed from a consensual relationship in his teens.
