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 our sources, 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.
