Kenneth Petty, the husband of Nicki Minaj (37), has registered with the state of California as a sex offender. TMZ reports this. Petty was arrested last week because he had not yet done so, while it is mandatory in a conviction.

“So make it what you want but nobody can turn my life upside down”

Nicki’s husband was convicted in New York in 1995 for attempted rape. According to Minaj, things were different. “He was 15, she was 16. They had a relationship. So make it what you want, but no one can mess up my life,” the rapper said more than a year ago.

The case came to light when Petty was arrested in November for a traffic violation, and the duty officer found out that he was registered as a sex offender in New York but not in California.
