The two had made their relationship official in December. Fans then saw Minaj changing her Twitter name to Mrs. Petty in August.
“I’ve decided to retire and have my family,” she tweeted in September. “I know you guys are happy now.”
Petty was convicted in 1995 of attempted rape in connection with a September 16, 1994 incident in which a woman said he ‘placed a hard circular object’ as she walked down a Queens street, leading to believe he was armed, according to The Blast.
Petty’s accuser said she led her to a home and into a bedroom and had sex with her by force, and threatened her with a knife when she tied to leave. He spent four years in prison in connection with the incident and was also placed on the sex offender registry.
