Nicki Minaj On Her Father: “I Wanted To Kill Him...”
Nicki Minaj has spoken frankly about her childhood, telling The Daily Star that her father was often abusive towards her mother, causing Nicki to fear for her life. The 29-year-old admitted: "We hated him." The family were living in Queens, New York, when the outbursts occurred...
The Young Money star opened up, saying: "We were afraid for my mother’s life, because whenever he would have a real bad outburst he would threaten to kill her. I wanted to kill him. I used to wish he was dead."
Nicki’s parents are still together, but the 'Starships' artist said that witnessing her parents arguing so violently traumatised her - thus impacting the way she feels about relationships now.
She added: "You know, when you see your mother going through that you think, 'I’ll never do that when I get older.' I always put my foot down with men. I let them know, 'I’m not going to submit to you.'"
