Hold up — is Nicki Minaj pregnant with Kenneth Petty‘s baby? That’s exactly what some fans are saying about the “Chun-Li” rapper and her sex offender boyfriend after she posted a video on her Instagram Story drinking pickle juice.

“Pickle juice for breakfast,” she wrote on a snap of herself holding the jar.

People quickly began commenting, wondering if there was something the 36-year-old wasn’t telling them. “Is she [trying to] insinuate that she’s pregnant?” one person asked, while another pleaded, “She better love pickle juice and not be pregnant.” A third chimed in, “B—h knew him for 12 minutes and she pregnant.”

According to Radar Online, Kenneth was arrested on Sept. 16, 1994, by the New York City Police Department Sex Offender Unit for having “sexual intercourse” with a 16-year-old female, according to New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services documents obtained by the outlet. Kenneth, who is now 40 years old, was about 16 years old at the time. In the original record of his conviction, Kenneth, who is 5′ 9″ and weighs 170 pounds, used a “knife/cutting instrument (e.g., ax, ice pick, screwdriver, switchblade, Kung Fu stars, cane sword, etc.)” during the attempted rape.

He was convicted of first-degree attempted rape on April 5, 1995, and he was sentenced to 18 to 54 months in prison. But that wasn’t Kenneth’s only conviction. In 2006, the music industry professional was found guilty of manslaughter and he spent seven years in prison. He was released in 2013.

So… could it be that Nicki is gearing up to give birth to his child? Only time will tell. But there’s at least one skeptic. “Y’all really falling for this [bull—t]?” they fumed. “This cry for attention?”
