Nicki Minaj’s husband gets 1 year home detention over sex offence

Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty will be doing time for failing to register as a sex offender in California, but much to the feds’ dismay — he’ll be doing that time in the mansion where he and Nicki live.

A federal judge sentenced the 44-year-old on Wednesday, giving him 1 year of home detention, 3 years probation, and a $55,000 (Ksh 5.5M) fine. Petty entered a guilty plea back in September 2021.

According to TMZ, prosecutors inside the U.S. Attorney’s Office had argued home detention wouldn’t be punishment, because Nicki and Kenneth live in a luxurious multi-bedroom mansion in a gated Calabasas community.

They had recommended Petty get 15 months in prison and 5 years of probation, but the judge clearly disagreed with him getting that stiff of a sentence.

Petty was convicted of a 1994 rape in NYC where he served over 4 years in prison. When he moved to Cali with Nicki, he didn’t register on the sex offenders list and that’s when the feds busted him.
