Nicki Minaj has claimed that her father is the reason for her ‘abrasive’ character after witnessing his violence attitude towards her mother when she was a child.
In her upcoming Queen documentary, the 35-year-old rapper revealed how her father’s behaviour towards her mother contributed to her own personality.
An emotional Nicki said: ‘I remember when my mother would let my father be violent with her, and she always brings up this story.’
Spreading her arms wide, she added: ‘As a little girl, I would stand in front of my mother, and go like this.
‘That’s why I’m like, maybe some people would describe me as abrasive, or b**chy or whatever, because I vowed from that age, no man would ever be with me and call me out my name, treat me like that … And then all of the sudden, that was my life.’
Also discussing her own abusive relationship, she disclosed how it caused her to lose self-confidence.
She said: ‘Who was I going to inspire when I had nothing in me to give? I let one human being make me so low, that I didn’t even remember who I was.
‘I was scared to get in the studio. I didn’t believe in myself.’
Nicki who is rumoured to be dating Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton, recently admitted that she would like to get married first before having a child.
She explained: ‘I’ve got to get married first, then I’ll have a child. I might be closer than people think actually. I love children. I’m not going to put that off for much longer.’
