Nicki Minaj’s Sex Offender Husband Permitted to Travel With Her on Tour


Nicki Minaj’s Husband Allowed to Travel With Her on Tour Despite Sex Offender Status

Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty has been granted permission by a California District Judge to travel internationally for Minaj’s upcoming Pink Friday 2 tour. The decision comes despite Petty’s status as a registered sex offender.

Quick Facts

  • Kenneth Petty, Nicki Minaj’s husband, has been granted permission to travel internationally for her upcoming tour.
  • Petty is a registered sex offender due to a 1995 conviction for attempted rape.
  • Despite potential restrictions, Petty’s motion to travel with Minaj was granted by a District Court judge.

Petty’s guilty plea to the attempted rape of Jennifer Hough in 1995, when both were 16, resulted in a four-year prison sentence and a requirement to register as a sex offender. In March 2020, he faced further legal issues for failing to comply with registration requirements, leading to house arrest, a fine, and probation.

Despite these past legal troubles, Petty’s motion to travel internationally with Minaj for her tour was approved by a District Court judge. The motion emphasized his necessity for accompanying the family, including childcare responsibilities.

While some have raised concerns about his status as a sex offender potentially restricting his entry into certain countries on the tour, legal experts suggest that exceptions or waivers may be possible in certain cases, depending on the legitimacy of his travel reasons.
