Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty sentenced to one-year house arrest




Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty has been sentenced to three years probation and one year of house arrest for failing to register as a sex offender.

Kenneth was required to inform authorities when he moved due to an attempted rape conviction from 1995.

But the 44-year-old admitted failing to do this when he relocated to California with Nicki Minaj in 2019.

He’s now been sentenced and fined $55,000 (£46,000), according to the US Attorney’s Office.

Under US law, registered sex offenders have five days to update their details if their residence changes.

Petty had previously pleaded not guilty to this at a 2020 court appearance, but changed his plea last September.

At his latest hearing prosecutors said house arrest was not tough enough, and urged the judge to give Petty further prison time.

In the hours after the sentencing, Nicki Minaj posted a picture on Instagram of her husband and son.
