Reports from Meghann Cuniff indicate that the husband of the rapper is requesting a federal judge’s consent to join his wife on an international trip.

Despite being under probation for failure to register as a sex offender in Los Angeles, Petty informed the court of his necessity to travel with his wife during her Pink Friday 2 tour to assist with childcare.

RadarOnline has also obtained the legal documents that reveal the desire of Petty, as conveyed by his attorney, to accompany his family on his wife’s tour for childcare and professional reasons.

According to the motion filed, “Mr. Petty and Mrs. Petty believe Mr. Petty must accompany the family on the tour for various reasons, including childcare. The proposed travel dates are from April 17, 2024, to July 14, 2024, involving visits to several nations including Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Austria, Ireland, Switzerland, and Romania.”

The lawyer representing Petty concluded the statement with,

The application has been communicated to the authorities, who have remained neutral. Mr. Petty’s probation officer has no objections to the travel request.

The restriction on Kenneth Petty’s travel without judicial consent originates from his 1995 conviction for first-degree attempted rape of a 16-year-old. After serving a 4-year prison sentence, he was directed to register as a sex offender upon release.

Following their marriage in 2019, Nicki Minaj and her spouse relocated to California. A few years later, Petty faced legal charges for failing to register as a sex offender in his new state of residence. Apart from the registration requirement, the court imposed a 3-year probation period.

Petty also recently completed a 120-day home detention term due to probation violation related to public threats made towards Cardi B’s husband, Offset.

As of April 16, the decision on Petty’s plea to travel with his wife for the tour is pending.
