Nicki Minaj's Dad

Gutted She Wanted to 'Kill' Him

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.

We're told her father still loves Nicki very much ... and always has.

Well there are quite a few rumors and accusations going around about how SHE treats people around her. If what she says about her dad is true, you would think she would be more mindful about not treating people like trash.

I use to like Nicki Minaj when she FIRST came out a while back. Now, not so much. She's turned into a complete freak show. I have also heard that she is a complete nightmare to be around or work with. I think she has also accused her boyfriend or ex boyfriend of the same things too... She's a total weirdo.

Is her father Trinidadian?
I never saw the interview, but the father has a point. This did not have to be aired publicly. He admits to anger issues, but not the drugs and the alcohol abuse. Sad.

Sure guy. Abusers NEVER think it's as bad as what other people say. And this makes you a classic abuser.

S***bags never take responsibility.


Met with the very same tactic once "outing" abusers.

"Grossly exaggerated, crushed, love more than anything."

Meanwhile someone who's achieved despite her upbringing/horror.

Is twice punked -

They don't call me "The Sociopath Whisperer" for nothing.

"Meanwhile the accused Batterer(s) has issued a strong Denial and shrugged his/her/their shoulders to the ninth degree."


"Me?!" cried they...


Read any textbook - this is classic abuser mentality/tactic.

Next he'll sue her citing public humiliation/libel.


-Then he'll write a book about his-cherished-daughter.


-For his book tour he'll buy six new grey/blue Brooks Brothers suits.


-Going out of his/her way -


-and to appear meek/pathetic (anothing classic textbook abuser pattern/trait).


In other words he'll try to cash in.


On Nicky Minaj's nightmare.


Been there - done that.


It's almost funny now - that they all do the exact same thing - the exact same way - using the exact same language.


You'd think they'd read a few textbooks about themselves first -


Try to vary or change the tactics up.


The dude is Bozo the Clown, trusteth.


She's telling the truth about him - trusteth.


If anything she's minimizing what he was/did.


Kids don't lie.
