Nicki Minaj ‘swatted’ by callers claiming her son was abused

Nicki Minaj fell prey to a “swatting” scheme this week when an anonymous caller falsely claimed that her 2-year-old son was being abused. The culprit contacted child services, leading to the Los Angeles Police Department sending sheriff’s deputies to Minaj’s California mansion, according to a law enforcement source as reported by TMZ. The hitmaker of “Super Freaky Girl,” who has a son with husband Kenneth Petty, spoke to the officers at her home. They concluded that there were no signs of abuse after examining the toddler, whose name has not been disclosed publicly. However, a few hours later, another caller phoned in to report a fire at Minaj’s house. It was soon discovered that the rapper had been “swatted,” and the phone calls were false. Minaj, 40, is now pursuing legal action against those involved in the prank.

“Swatting” is the act of calling the police or falsely reporting a crime in the hopes of a large police response, or even a S.W.A.T. team, showing up at a specific location. The prank wastes time and resources that could otherwise be used for pursuing real crimes. Minaj’s son, whom she affectionately calls “Papa Bear,” arrived in September 2020, almost a year after she wed Petty, 45.

The musician went into labor shortly after she “got out of the shower,” she told her fans in a Twitter post, three months after giving birth. “The epidural didn’t hurt” and “took [her] ass right to sleep,” said the “Queen Radio” host. In May 2021, she shared a rare video of her adorable mini-me beginning to walk.

The “Starships” singer previously opened up about parenthood, telling Complex that she was “put here to be a mother.” “I definitely will be married before I have my baby. I want to make sure I do it in that order,” she said. “I’ve always felt like that since I was young; my mother always put that in my head.”

Nicki Minaj was reportedly the victim of a “swatting” attack this week after an anonymous caller falsely told police her 2-year-old son was being abused.

The prankster contacted child services, which led to Los Angeles Police Department sheriff’s deputies showing up at Minaj’s California mansion, a law enforcement source told TMZ Sunday.

The “Super Freaky Girl” hitmaker, who shares her baby boy with husband Kenneth Petty, spoke to the officers at her home.

After examining the toddler, whose name has yet to be revealed publicly, they determined there were no signs of abuse.

However, a few hours later, another caller phoned 911 to report a fire at Minaj’s house.

It was soon apparent that the rapper had been “swatted,” and there was no truth to the bogus phone calls.

The “Super Bass” rapper, 40, is now pursuing legal action against those involved, the outlet also reported.

PandaUSA has reached out to reps for Minaj but did not immediately hear back.
