“We Lived In Fear”: Celebrities Who Had A Rough Childhood

- By

Nicki Minaj

Star Nicki Minaj grew up with a terrifying father who once tried to burn their house down with their mother in it.

In 2011, Minaj opened up about life as a young girl:

“All of my young and teenage early years we lived in fear that my mother would be killed by my father. It was ridiculous… It was very tough emotionally for me to have a parent who was an alcoholic and a drug addict… My father was violent – physically and verbally.”
