Nicki Minaj is officially a married woman but with some pretty contingent stipulations on her new marriage to Mr. Petty. According to reports and social media posts, Minaj-Petty married Petty recently but did not confirm full dates and details.
Let’s take a walk down history lane for the newly minted half-criminal couple. At the age of 16, Petty was convicted of rape in connection to the case of a young woman whom he led with a “circular object” aimed at her back while being led down a block in Queens. This occurred in 1995. According to court documents — the woman claimed that Petty then led her inside of a home nearby that block and raped her against her will.
Petty was charged with rape and spent four years in prison for that particular incident. He was also forced in 1999 to go on the sexual offender registry in America. Being on the sex offender registry means… Petty will never be able to have kids with Nicki and if she gets pregnant he is legally not allowed to see them.
In case it couldn’t get any worse, Petty also has a 2002 manslaughter charge on his record for the fatal shooting of Lamont Robinson that year. He was formally charged in 2006 and spent 7 years of a 10-year sentence behind bars. He was released in 2013.
- He won’t be able to see his kids if he and Nicki have them.
- He won’t be able to pick them up from school as sex offenders in America aren’t allowed anywhere near schools.
- He won’t be able to attend their birthdays.
Happy nuptials to the troubled couple.
