Kenneth Petty will be joining his wife, Nicki Minaj, on the international leg of her Pink Friday 2 World Tour after all.

Petty, who’s currently on probation and house arrest, asked a judge for permission to travel out of the country with his wife “for various purposes, including childcare,” which, at first, had no position from the judge. However, according to Legal Affairs And Trials reporter Meghann Cunniff, a judge greenlit Petty’s request on Tuesday (April 16).

“Defendant Kenneth Petty (‘Mr. Petty’), by and through counsel, hereby applies to the Court for an Order allowing him to travel out of the country with his family for his wife’s tour and her professional purposes,” the filing states. “Mr. Petty and Mrs. Petty believe Mr. Petty is necessary to accompany the family on the tour for various purposes, including childcare.”

In addition, the filing lists all of the international countries that will be visited including: Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Austria, Ireland, Switzerland, and Romania.

“The Government has been notified about this application and takes no position. Mr. Petty’s probation officer has been notified of this application and has no objection to the travel request,” it continued. The motion also notes that upon approval, Petty will provide his probation officer with a travel itinerary, stay in contact with authorities, and check in with Los Angeles County once he returns.

The Pink Friday 2 International leg begins April 17 in Montreal, QC, before concluding July 12 in London.

Aside from being a court-registered sex offender, Petty was placed on house arrest last year when he violated his probation by threatening Cardi B’s husband Offset on camera. The two had a rift following the 2023 MTV VMA’s, which Minaj hosted and Cardi attended.

In a court order filed in September of last year, the New York native was summoned to 120 days of home monitoring. His violation includes “making threatening remarks to a specific individual while in the company of someone with a criminal record.”

The specific individual was the former Migos rapper.
