Nicki Minaj‘s husband Kenneth Petty is currently on probation, but he just got permission to travel overseas for the Pink Friday 2 Tour.

Per legal documents viewed by HipHopDX, on Monday (April 15), the 46-year-old applied “to travel out of the country with his family for his wife’s tour” for “various purposes, including childcare.”

According to Petty’s attorney, the feds took no position on the request, and Petty’s probation officer “does not oppose” it.

Court records reveal that Petty previously tried applying for the travel permission under seal, but the attempt to keep his request secret was rejected.

On Tuesday (April 16), Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald approved Petty’s request.

Petty’s criminal past has made headlines earlier this month after his updated photograph on the sex-offender registry surfaced online.

The image, which has been widely shared in the cyberspace, was recently published on the official website of California’s Megan’s Law, which is a federal mandate that requires authorities to make information available to the public regarding registered sex offenders.

The website lists Petty’s sex offender status along with personal details such as his date of birth, profile description and the reason for his conviction: “Attempted rape by force or fear.”

Petty’s sex offender status stems from a 1995 conviction for the first-degree attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl, for which he spent four years in prison. As previously mentioned, he was later slapped with three years’ probation and one year house detention after failing to register as a sex offender in California, where he and Nicki moved in 2019 before getting married.

Earlier this year, Megan Thee Stallion threw shade at Nicki Minaj on “Hiss” by rapping about Megan’s Law, igniting a bitter feud.

These hoes don’t be mad at Megan, these hoes mad at Megan’s Law/ I don’t really know what the problem is, but I guarantee y’all don’t want me to start,” she spit.

The law in question is named after Megan Kanka, a young girl from New Jersey who was raped and murdered in 1994 by a sex offender who wasn’t legally required to identify himself in the neighborhood at the time.

Megan was just seven years old when she was subjected to the horrific abuse by her neighbor Jesse Timmendequas after he lured her into his house. He was previously convicted of child molestation.

Her father, Richard Kanka, slammed Meg for using his daughter’s name in her beef with Nicki.
