The 44-year-old, who pleaded guilty to failing to register last year, was also ordered to pay a $55,000 fine, in addition to spending three years on probation and a year in home detention.

“We appreciate and respect the Court’s decision granting the defense request for probation and home confinement,” Petty’s attorneys Michael Goldstein and Hagop Kuyumjian said in a statement.

Petty was arrested in March 2020 after he was ordered to register as a sex offender in California in November 2019 and failed to do so.

Prior to striking up a romance with Minaj, 39, he was convicted of attempting to rape a 16-year-old girl in 1994. He was required by law to register as a sex offender in New York.

However, Petty moved out of the state in October 2019 after marrying Minaj – whom he shares a son with – that same year.

In a September 2021 appearance on “The Real,” Jennifer Hough – who was the 16-year-old girl Petty allegedly raped – spoke out about the alleged 1994 incident.

Hough claimed Petty approached her at a bus stop, pulled a knife on her and led her to a house, where the alleged incident took place.

“I knew what he wanted,” Hough alleged. “He pushed me down on the bed, we wrestled for my clothes.”

After allegedly escaping and making her way back to school, Hough told her side of what happened to security and Petty was arrested that day.

Minaj has stuck by Petty’s side and defended him on various occasions.

Addressing the incident via Instagram in 2018, Minaj wrote, “He was 15, she was 16 … in a relationship. But go awf, [sic] internet, y’all can’t run my life. y’all can’t even run y’all own life.”

KanyiDaily recalls that in 2020, Nicki Minaj officially become a mother after welcoming her first child with husband, Kenneth Petty.
