Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty was arrested earlier these month for failing to apply as a sex offender in the state of California.
As part of his release conditions, he is denied internet access. According to Tmz reports Petty has now filed legal documents begging a judge to lift the ban. Prosecutors have already signed off on the request and now it’s up to a judge to provide the final decision.
Petty pleaded not guilty for failing to register as a sex offender but still has a curfew in place. He’s also required to wear an ankle monitor until his court date next month and stay put in Southern California.
TV host Wendy Williams called out the rapper for marrying someone with such a past, also accusing him of tarnishing her image.
“Well apparently the way this show is going today, we did not have enough time to get to Nicki Minaj’s [husband],” she said. “But let me tell you something Nicki. That’s going to be my first story tomorrow and I’m going to lead with this: You should’ve never married him because now you’ve ruined everything about what your brand could be.
“Again, you are never going to stand a chance when you are with a man who pulls a knife at rape point. A registered sex offender, you are never going to stand a chance with the public. There’s only one thing worse than touching children and pulling knives and that’s murder. By the way, he did go to jail for manslaughter. Oh, I think I just did the story. No, get to digging. There’s more on it. Everybody get to digging. Get to digging.”
