Nicki Minaj threatens to sue ‘Daily Mail TV’ host

For a report on her new boyfriend, who is reportedly a registered sex offender in New York state.

Nicki Minaj has been taking heat from her fans and the media lately over her new boyfriend, Kenneth Petty, who is apparently a registered sex offender in New York state. The rapper has gone to bat for Petty, and yesterday threatened to sue Daily Mail TV host Jesse Palmer for reporting on the story.

“You better have a good lawyer,” Minaj addressed Palmer on Instagram. “You just lied on me on [national] TV & now you’re being sued. You better be able to back up what you just said about me with FACTS.” She then added a hashtag, “#Defamation.”

She continued on Twitter:


Though the Queen rapper never specified what Palmer actually said, Deadspin points out that the host (and former football player) was indeed reporting on Petty and her fans’ concern that Minaj is dating a registered sex offender.


Will Minaj actually sue the quarterback-turned-TV host? It’s anyone’s guess.
