    Nicki Minaj's husband has been granted permission to accompany her on tour overseas

    The 'Super Bass' singer is out on the road on her 'Pink Friday World Tour' and on Tuesday (16.04.24), District Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald lifted a restriction that will allow Kenneth Petty to travel internationally from now until 14 July while still on probation for failing to register as a sex offender


    Documents obtained by People magazine stated: "[Petty] shall keep his probation officer updated with the details of his travel itinerary as needed. At the conclusion of the travel, [Petty] must return to Los Angeles and must check in with his probation officer upon returning.

    "Mr. Petty must also provide an itinerary to his probation officer prior to travel and follow all directives of the probation officer."

    His lawyer added in a statement: "The order granted by the court speaks for itself."

    Kenneth - who has a three-year-old son with his wife - had requested the exception on Monday (15.04.24) in order "travel out of the country with his family for his wife's tour and her professional purposes."

    The filing added: "[Petty] and [Minaj] believe [Petty] is necessary to accompany the family on the tour for various purposes, including childcare", noting the schedule included stops in Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Austria, Ireland, Switzerland and Romania.

    According to the documents, the government took "no position" after being notified of the request and his probation officer had "no objections".

    In April 1995, Kenneth was jailed for four years and level two registered sex offender in New York after being convicted of attempted rape in the first degree for an assault the previous year of a then-16-year-old girl.

    In March 2020, he was arrested again after failing to register as a sex offender when he moved to California from Miami, to which he pleaded guilty and posted $100,000 bail.

    In July 2022, he was sentenced to a year of house arrest and three years of probation, as well as given a $55,000 fine.
