Nicki Minaj recently shared some information about her upbringing in an interview with Nightline that hurt some feelings, particularlythose of her father.
In the television interview, Nicki spoke about her father describing him as an abusive addict and claiming that she wanted to "kill him" when she was a younger.
According to TMZ Nicki's father has spoken out since the interview and is heartbroken by what he called the exaggerated allegations.
As reported by TMZ:
Nicki Minaj's father is completely torn up over the rapper's recent comments -- that she wanted to "kill" him when she was a child -- and now, he wants the world to know he's not some violent monster.
In case you missed her recent "Nightline" interview, Nicki went OFF on her dad Omar -- describing the guy as a drug addict and alcoholic who often threatened to kill her mother ... once even burning down their house.Nicki 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."
But family sources tell TMZ, Nicki's anecdotes are grossly exaggerated -- Omar admits he had anger issues when she was a child ... but insists it NEVER reached the point Nicki described in her interview.
Sources tell us, Omar never knew Nicki felt this way about him -- and he's absolutely crushed she decided to air her grievances in the media.
Humm, this sounds like a case of who said what. Regardless of whether or not the accused incidents happened, one thing that is confirmed is that both parties are hurting.
