Nicki Minaj’s husband says he can’t legally attend the birth of the couple’s child if it happens after the curfew the government placed him on due to his criminal case. So, he is asking them to ease the restrictions so he can be there for his famous wife!
According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Kenneth Petty is asking a federal judge to change his current ‘release conditions’ after he realized if Nicki gives birth after hours, he would not be allowed to accompany her to the hospital.
As you know, Nicki is due to give birth in the next few months.
According to the filing, Petty is also asking the judge to sign off on him traveling with Nicki for work reasons because he is currently her manager.
“Mr. Petty is currently employed as a manager for his spouse, Nicki Minaj. His employment requires periodic domestic travel as well as periodic work outside of his curfew hours,” the filing reads.
It continues, “Mr. Petty is also expecting a child. He has been advised that his current release conditions will not permit him to attend his child’s birth, should it occur outside of curfew hours. Mr. Petty submits the proposed modification so he can work and attend his child’s birth.”
At this point, a judge will still need to sign off on the request before Nicki’s hubby is clear to travel and attend the birth if it happens after curfew.
But, according to his lawyer, federal prosecutors have already agreed to allow it. “I have spoken to AUSA Sarah Gerdes. She does not object to the instant request. I have also spoken to Pretrial Services Officer Gregory Kwon. He informed me that Pretrial Services does not object to the instant request.” his lawyer said in the document.
As we reported, Nicki just revealed she was pregnant while the couple visited Trinidad in February for a concert. So, she is about 6-7 months along.
Nicki Minaj’s husband was indicted after failing to register as a sex offender after moving to the state of California from New York.
According to reports, Minaj’s husband was pulled over by Beverly Hills Police Department in November, and during the traffic stop, officers realized he was a registered sex offender in New York state but had not registered in California, which is required.
Petty was reportedly convicted in 1995 for first-degree attempted rape, and served almost 4 years in a New York state prison and was required to register as a sex offender.
