Minaj shared a photo of him last week in her Instagram stories, however his face was not revealed. Her Barbz immediately discovered that the man was “Zoo Bang.” And surprisingly, her fans are not happy with her new man. Zoo Bang was allegedly convicted of rape in the first-degree in 1995 and has mugshots all over the web.

According to the Blast.com:

“Officials note that the offense was “sexual intercourse” and that Petty used a “knife/cutting instrument.” He was sentenced to between 18 and 54 months in a state prison, but it’s unclear how much time he actually served. It’s also noted that he has an identifiable scar on his forehead.”

Her loyal fans believe that Zoo Bang is “just a friend and the two are just working on her music video together.” Check out the video and pics below:
