With her online and in-person behavior, lagging album and concert ticket sales and the company she keeps, this hasn’t been Nicki Minaj’s best year.

Sadly, it seems to be getting worse.

After the “Queen” rapper posted a picture of her and a mystery man on social media last week, the Internet sleuths got to inspecting and found out that her new Bae may be Kenneth ‘Zoo’ Petty, a registered sex offender.

According to Hollywood Life, it appears that Petty, 40, was convicted of raping a 16-year old girl back in 1995 when he was a teenager. The father of five is also currently on the sex offender registry list.

This week, even more pictures and video of the couple have been surfacing online. Take a look:

Nicki has yet to confirm that she is dating Petty, but has been tweeting a lot lately.

We’re not sure what she is referring here specifically, but Black Twitter had a lot to say about her dating game.

Lord, what happened to the rumors that she was dating Lewis Hamilton? Can we just go back to those days?
