It always seems like celebrities have daddy issues, and it’s no different with Nicki Minaj. While on Nightline recently, Nicki blasted her father, calling him a drug addict and an alcoholic who was abusive to her mother and even threatened arson against them.
She said, “I wanted to kill [my dad]. I used to wish he was dead…We were afraid for my mother’s life because whenever he would have a real bad outburst he would threaten to kill her.”
According to TMZ, Nicki’s claims are quite the exaggerations. Though her pops did have plenty of anger issues, it was never to the extent that Nicki alleges. Her dad, Omar, also had no clue she felt this way until she said it publicly, which “absolutely crushed” him. You know, I’m not gonna make any judgements of what’s real and not real because abusers often have a warped sense of reality and the damage they inflict. Like fifty billion other things, I guess we’ll never know. All we do know is that Nicki’s laughing all the way to better things–whether she’s cray-cray or not.
