Another week, another Nicki Minaj headline. And, as is becoming an increasing reality, the latest relates to those in her immediate circle. Specifically husband Kenneth Petty.
Full story below…
According to TMZ, Petty has been arrested by US Marshals on an indictment for failing to register as a sex offender.
After re-igniting his relationship with Onika, Petty moved from New York to Los Angeles in July 2019.
And that, it appears, is where his present troubles started.
As widely reported, Petty has a 1995 conviction for first-degree attempted rape, for which he served a four year term in prison. He was required to sign the sex offenders register in New York – which he did.
However, he’s accused of not doing the same in LA upon making the move.
A discovery that was made by Beverly Hills police when they pulled him over for a traffic stop last November.
It’s not immediately clear what happened between then and now. But he turned himself into Marshals today, where he was formally arrested and charged. He was released on $20,000 bond.
Petty now faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
