Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, is behind bars according to reports. As of today (March 4th), Kenneth Petty is in federal custody. According to reports he was arrested by US Marshals for failing to register as a sex offender.
According to reports, in 1995 the rapper’s husband was convicted for first-degree attempted rape. He was required to register as a sex offender and ultimately served almost 4 years in NY state prison.
Reportedly, issues over him not properly registering may have begun last year. Reportedly, he got pulled over for a traffic stop in 2019 in California. At this time, he was residing in California, having moved from New York and it was discovered that he had not registered as a sex offender. Registering as a sex offender is required. At this time, he was reportedly arrested and released on bond, but he was charged with failing to register.
It is reported that he did not register and was indicted in federal court for not registering. Kenneth Petty turned himself into the Marshal and will see a judge at some point.
Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty began publicly dating in December 2018.
She filed for a marriage license in August 2019. She announced their official marriage on October 21. She hyphenated her husband’s last name to hers upon marriage, becoming Maraj-Petty.
She has yet to comment publicly on the situation.
