*Nicki Minaj may not have found her happily ever after with husband Kenny Petty, as rumor has it the two have called it quits after less than a year of marriage.

Fans have also pointed out that the rapper’s display name on Twitter is no longer Ms. Petty, as she has changed it to the title of her latest single.

According to Rhymeswithsnitch, one of Kenny’s friends reportedly spilled the tea about the split on Instagram Live. However, the friend apparently didn’t state the reason why Nicki and Kenneth’s marriage fell apart. 

Meanwhile, word on the curb is that Nicki found out Petty was creeping with their threesome partner without her, “and that was all it took for the marriage to come crashing down,” according to one Hollywood insider.

The “Queen” rapper has not confirmed or denied reports about splitting with her hubby, who is a registered sex offender.

Petty’s status stems from his conviction of first-degree attempted rape in 1995.

When news first surfaced of his rape case, Nicki came to her man’s defense. “He was 15, she was 16. In a relationship,” Nicki wrote on social media in 2018. “But go awf Internet. Y’all can’t ruin my life. Y’all can’t even run y’all own life. Thank you boo.”

Petty previously served seven years in prison for first-degree manslaughter, which he pleaded guilty to. He was released in 2013.

Petty was arrested back in November for not registering as a sex offender when he moved from New York to California.

He was released on $20,000 bond and ordered to register, as required by law.

The 42-year-old is awaiting his April 28 trial date. If convicted, Petty reportedly faces up to 10-years in prison.

Internet mischief-maker Jake Paul also put on a show at the weigh-in — dressing up like a Super Saiyan from “Dragon Ball Z” … and warning his opponent Nate Robinson to not let his kids watch the fight, because it will scar them for years to come.

36-year-old Nate is a former NBA star and 3-time NBA Slam Dunk contest champion. He said he’s fighting 23-year-old Paul to prove he’s still an elite athlete.

Here’s more via TMZ:

The fight is set to go down Saturday night at Staples Center in L.A. — the weigh-in took place at a nearby hotel.

Everyone at the weigh-in site was required to undergo COVID testing — including our TMZ photog, who was also mask’d up and keeping his distance.

As we previously reported, both Mike and 51-year-old Roy have made it abundantly clear they will be trying to take each other out from the opening bell of their 8 round exhibition (available on PPV via cable and satellite, and PPV streaming at Triller).

The event is going to be insane — with performances from huge stars like Lil Wayne, French Montana, YG, Wiz Khalifa and more.

Barack Obama - The Breakfast Club1 - Interview-for-Promised-Land-Memoir

*(Via UrbanHollywood411) – Former President Barack Obama continued his book tour Wednesday (11-25-20) with a conversation on The Breakfast Club about his record on supporting the Black Community, Joe Biden winning the election and Latinos who voted for President Donald Trump.

While discussing his record-selling memoir “A Promised Land” with hosts Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee, and DJ Envy, Obama addressed criticism that he didn’t do enough for African Americans while he was in the White House.

“I understand it because when I got elected, there was so much excitement and hope. And I also think that we generally view the presidency as almost like a monarchy. In the sense of, ‘once the President is there he can just do whatever he needs to get done and if he’s not doing it then it must be because he didn’t want to do it,’” he told the three radio hosts.

He then said he “had the statistics” to prove his accomplishments.

“By the time I left office, you had seen three million African Americans have health care that didn’t have it before. You had seen the incarceration rate, the number of Black folks in prison, drop for the first time in years… You had seen Black poverty drop to its lowest level since 1968. You had seen Black businesses rise, you had seen Black income go up,” Obama said, adding that “millions of Black folks were better off” when he left office.
