According to new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Petty was just cleared by a judge in California to have his bail restrictions loosened to allow him to leave his residence, eve after hours.
The judge ordered Petty to remain on “location monitoring” but will have ‘not residential restrictions’ which means he can leave the house whenever Nicki goes in to labor!!

*Nicki Minaj’s husband can’t legally attend the birth of their first child due to his criminal case. So he’s asking a judge to ease the restrictions so he can accompany his wife to the hospital.

Minaj’s husband Kenny Petty was convicted for first-degree attempted rape 25 years ago in New York. He served four years behind bars and upon release, was ordered to register as a sex offender in the state. He failed to re-register when he moved to California last year with his wife.

He’s filed legal documents asking for a judge to change his pretrial release conditions to allow him to be present. He is worried about the release conditions in the event she gives birth after his curfew hours. He also requested to be able to travel with Nicki on business trips as her manager. In the court documents he filed, he said the U.S. Attorney’s Office and pretrial services office aren’t against his request.
“Mr. Petty is currently employed as a manager for his spouse, Nicki Minaj. His employment requires periodic domestic travel as well as periodic work outside of his curfew hours,” the filing reads.
It continues, “Mr. Petty is also expecting a child. He has been advised that his current release conditions will not permit him to attend his child’s birth, should it occur outside of curfew hours. Mr. Petty submits the proposed modification so he can work and attend his child’s birth.”
According to Petty’s lawyer, federal prosecutors have already agreed to allow it.
“I have spoken to AUSA Sarah Gerdes. She does not object to the instant request. I have also spoken to Pretrial Services Officer Gregory Kwon. He informed me that Pretrial Services does not object to the instant request.” his lawyer said in the document.
