Nicki Minaj’s Husband Kenneth Petty Sentenced to One Year of House Arrest for Failing to Register as a Sex Offender

NICKI Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty has been sentenced to a year’s house arrest for failing to register as a sex offender.

Petty, 44, who was jailed in 1995 for the attempted rape of a teenager, was also sentenced to three years’ probation and fined $55,000, California prosecutors said.

He could have been sentenced to up to ten years for the crime, but will instead serve his sentence at home.

Petty — Minaj’s childhood sweetheart and the father of her child — was set to re-register after moving from New York to LA in 2019.

But the police stopped his car months later and found out that he was not registered in the state.

He was arrested in March 2020 and initially denied wrongdoing and was released on $100,000 bail.

In August 2020, Petty sued to get his name off the New York sex offender registry, claiming someone else had signed the papers while he was in prison.

And when he was out on bail, he had to apply for special permission to be at the birth of his child because it would have breached his curfew.

But in September, he changed his plea to guilty at a retrial in California.

Petty must register as a sex offender after being convicted in 1994 of attempting to rape a 16-year-old girl with a knife.

His victim, Jennifer Hough, sued Petty and Minaj last year, accusing them of harassing her and threatening to keep her quiet.

She also gave an emotional TV interview detailing the brutal attack and said she was “tired of fear”.

Petty served four years behind bars and was later re-incarcerated in 2006 for first-degree murder.

Minaj – who first fell in love with him as a 16-year-old in Queens – rekindled her romance with him after his second release from prison.

He then appeared in the music videos for her hits Megatron and Hot Girl Summer.

Fans criticized the star for being with a convicted sex offender.

But she replied, “Fuck you, Internet. you all can’t control my life You can’t even control your own life. Thank you boo.”

After secretly marrying in 2019, Nicki shared the news in an Instagram video featuring Bride and Groom mugs and baseball caps.
