Nicki Minaj gets a swatting call claiming her 2-year-old son was being abused
Over the weekend, Nicki Minaj reportedly became the victim of a swatting call. This week, an anonymous caller told the police authorities that the rap queen’s 2-year-old son was being abused.
The prankster shared the false story with child services. Soon after, the Los Angeles Police Department sheriff’s deputies reached Nicki’s California mansion to check if everything was okay.
For those of you who are unaware, let us share with you, Nicki whose real name is Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty shares her 2-year-old son with her husband Kenneth Petty. She had a chat with the cops who showed up at her house located in California.
After meeting the toddler, whose real name is yet to be revealed publicly, the cops figured out that there were no signs of abuse. Although, a couple of hours later, the police authorities got another call. This time, the cops were informed about a fire at Nicki’s home. This report was also completely false.
At the moment, the Trinidadian-born rapper is taking some legal action against the people responsible for the prank calls.
What is Swatting?
The term ‘Swatting’ simply refers to the act of calling the police authorities or falsely reporting a crime in the hopes of a big response from the side of cops or a SWAT team. As a result of this, law enforcement officials show up at a specific location.
Some people usually do such pranks to pass their free time. Swatting ends up wasting time as well as resources that can be used for pursuing real crimes.
When did Nicki Minaj welcome her baby boy?
The Starships singer and her husband Kenneth Petty welcomed their son into the world in September 2020 nearly one year after they walked down the aisle. She lovingly calls her baby boy ‘Papa Bear.’ Later on, she told her fans that she went into labor after she “got out of the shower.”
At that time, Minaj said, “As soon as I started scooting over to [Petty] in the bed I just felt the water start coming out.” She went on to say that the “epidural didn’t hurt” and “took [her] ass right to sleep.”
During an earlier interview with Complex, Nicki spilled the beans on parenthood and she stated that she was “put here to be a mother.” She said, “I definitely will be married before I have my baby. I want to make sure I do it in that order. I’ve always felt like that since I was young; my mother always put that in my head.”
