Nicki Minaj Deletes Twitter Account, Talks Painful Childhood
She's rarely in the media for her personal life, but Nicki Minaj's latest interview on ABC's"Nightline" has people talking.
The "Super Bass" singer - who just deleted her Twitter account after a recent spat with some fellows posters on the social network - sat down with Juju Chang earlier this week and dished on everything from being compared to Lady Gaga to her ever growing fan base - but, what caught everyone's attention the most was her honesty about her painful childhood.The 29-year-old told that her father was a crack addict and would have outbursts, explaining, "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."
During the interview, Chang informed viewers that Minaj's father has been clean for years and that the singer has forgiven him, but now family is speaking out to tell people his side of the story.
Sources have spoken to TMZ, saying that, although her father Omar admits that he had anger issues as a child, he never reached such a violent point, adding that Nicki's claims are extremely exaggerated.
The sources also add that Omar now and always has loved his daughter and he's devastated that she shared these unknown feelings in the media
