Nicki Minaj is Now the Richest Female Rapper of All Time

“You can be the King but watch the Queen conquer.”

Nicki Minaj on “Monster”

Nicki Minaj has reached a new milestone in her career. The “Moment For Life” rapper is now the wealthiest female rapper of all time her net worth surpassed the $100 million mark. The historical feat broke on the Young Money’s Twitter account with the hashtag, #QueenTingz within the caption.

Minaj first broke onto the scene in 2009 with Lil Wayne’s Young Money, after years grinding between New York and Atlanta. After 11 years in the game, she has revolutionized and raised the standards for female rappers in the game. Throughout her career, Nicki Minaj has released 4 albums. Each of her four studio albums has been certified platinum or more, including her most recent release, Queen.

Despite a retirement announcement, the “Yikes” songstress dropped a new single earlier this year.

Aside from her music catalog, Minaj has ventured into a number of business endeavors and endorsements. Back in 2012, she reportedly earned $12 million from judging Season 12 of American Idol. She is one of the co-owners of Tidal, along with Jay-Z, Beyonce, Kanye West, Alicia Keys and more. Her collaboration with MAC, Pepsi, Adidas and most recently Fendi have all contributed to the net worth of Young Money’s first lady.

Nicki Minaj’s Address Shared when Her Husband Registers As Violent Sex Offender in California

It is the law. There is no way around it. There is no one above it. Kenneth Petty, the husband of rap superstar Nicki Minaj, is acutely aware of this reality. Especially after last week’s incarceration.

Petty was arrested in California last week for failing to comply with Megan’s Law, legislation that requires sex offenders to register in the state where they lay their heads. Under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, offenders are legally required to update registration in “each jurisdiction they reside, are employed, or attend school.” Failure to properly register and update personal information within a jurisdiction is considered a federal offense and can result in fines and a maximum 10-year prison sentence.

To be clear: Every person that has been criminally convicted of a sex crime is required to “register” online and disclose their current address to protect would-be victims. 

Unfortunately, for him and his new wife, registering means that your address is public information. And Petty registered on the Megan’s Law website.

The website lists the Beverly Hills address of the “Superbass” superstar. While you are protecting and saving some victims, fans argue that they are putting someone else in jeopardy.

In the profile, you learn a few things about Petty. One can find out his height, weight, hair and eye color, ethnicity and what he has actually been convicted of. The crime? He has been convicted of “ATTEMPTED RAPE BY FORCE OR FEAR.” 

Nicki can’t seem to catch a break or shake herself from sexual predators. Her brother, Jelani Maraj was recently sentenced to 25 years for raping his stepdaughter. Her husband is registered as a Level 2 sex offender, according to the Department of Justice’s website. According to Newsweek, he was convicted for attempting to “rape of a 16-year-old girl in 1995, during which he allegedly used a “knife/cutting instrument” to coerce her into sex. Petty was delivered an 18- to 54-month prison sentence. However, he only spent nearly four years behind bars before he was released in January 1999.”

Newsweek also reports that “in 2006 he was locked up on first-degree manslaughter charges from when he accidentally shot and killed a man named Lamont Robinson in 2002. He spent seven years in prison for that crime, however, he was placed on a supervised release program from 2013 to 2018.”

Nicki Minaj’s Husband’s California Sex Offender Case Thrown Out, Still Facing Federal Charges

Earlier this week, Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, was arrested for failing to register as a sex offender in California. As of yesterday (Mar 7), the case against him was dropped.

A representative for the district attorney’s office stated that “The case was dismissed today because he is facing a similar charge in federal court.”

Petty had moved from New York to California in July 2019 and failed to register in California within five days of moving. According to New York State’s Sex Offender Registry, the offender must notify the Division of Criminal Justice Services within ten days of any change of address. Petty was pulled over in Los Angeles in November 2019 for failing to register and was arrested. He was later released on a $20,000 bond.

Petty’s sex offender status stems from a 1995 case where he was convicted of first-degree rape of a sixteen-year-old girl. He was sixteen at the time and served four years in prison.

When Petty was arrested a few days ago in LA on March 4th, he was also indicted by the Federal Government as well. Despite the local charges being dropped, if convicted on the federal level, Petty faces up to ten years in prison.

Petty will be required to wear an ankle monitor and will have a curfew. He also has to give up his passport and cannot travel outside of Southern California.

BREAKING: Nicki Minaj’s Husband Kenny Petty Arrested By U.S. Marshals + Placed In Federal Custody

Nicki Minaj's Husband Kenny Petty

Young Money’s biggest Barbie might need to hire the best lawyers money can buy. New reports claim Nicki Minaj‘s husband Kenny Petty has landed in federal custody.

Big Facts

According to reports, U.S. Marshals arrested Petty on Wednesday on a serious indictment. The rap star’s hubby reportedly failed to register as a sex offender after moving from New York last year.

Kenneth Petty was in federal custody Wednesday — we’re told he turned himself into the Marshals. According to court docs, he’ll face a judge later today. Petty moved to California in July 2019, but according to law enforcement he got pulled over in Beverly Hills in November and that’s when his legal troubles started. We’re told Bev Hills PD made a traffic stop on November 15 and determined Petty was a registered sex offender in New York state but had not registered in California … as required. (TMZ)

High-Key Details

After being arrested and posting $20,000 bond in November 2019, the Los Angeles County District of Attorneys charged him for failing to register as a sex offender in California.

It appears he still didn’t check in after that because now the feds are in on the case. He was indicted in federal court for the same thing … failing to register. As we’ve reported, Kenneth’s rap sheet includes a 1995 conviction for first-degree attempted rape. He served almost 4 years in NY state prison for the crime and was required to register as a sex offender. If convicted on the federal charge for failure to register, Kenneth faces up to 10 years in prison. (TMZ)

Wait, There’s More

Last Thursday, Nicki shared a boo’d up shot alongside Petty. She also captioned it with some dicey words about the Internet’s infatuation with him.

Before You Go

Finally, Onika recently shared footage of herself and Kenny on a private plane. In the footage, Nicki Minaj’s husband is shown chilling in the background.

Nicki Minaj’s Husband Arrested for Failing to Register as a Sex Offender

Kenneth Petty, the husband of Nicki Minaj, is in federal custody on an indictment for failing to register as a sex offender. Petty turned himself in to U.S. Marshalls, TMZ reports.

Petty will see a judge later today. The report states Petty was pulled over in Beverly Hills in November 2019, which kickstarted his current legal issues. During the November 15 traffic stop, Petty was found to have registered as a sex offender in New York State but did not in California although it was required. He was arrested, charged with failing to register as a sex offender and released on a $20,000 bond.

After that incident, he did not correct the issue and now it has become a federal case, indicted on the same charges.

Petty was convicted in 1995 for first-degree attempted rape and served nearly four years in prison in New York. If convicted, Petty faces up to 10 years in prison.

Just last week, Nicki Minaj sent a message out to media, rappers and fans about her husband after a video of him in Trinidad during carnival hit online showing Petty push away someone reaching for Minaj. Nicki would apologize on her husband’s behalf before letting off her message.

“My husband be all over the blogs & he don’t even know it,” she said. “No social media to see y’all talk about him more than y’all talk bout these rappers dats out here doin the most for y’all attention… I could never comment on a regular man this much.”

She would double down on the statement on Instagram stating: “Rappers would kill for this attention chile.”

Nicki Minaj Declares $25,000 Donation to St. Judes Home for Girls in Trinidad

Nicki Minaj knows how to give back to places where it matters. The newly wedded rapper recently paid a visit to the St. Jude’s Home for Girls in her native country, Trinidad and Tobago, and not only served a wealth of inspiration but declared she will extend the young ladies at the school with a helping hand by way of a $25,000 donation.

“I wanna thank you for your work with the girls,” Nicki told the St. Judes personnel. “I wanna thank you for giving them hope and inspiration and they’ve even given me hope and inspiration being here today. And I wanna donate $25,000 to help the girls.”

Not only will the “Yikes” rapper be granting a generous donation, but she also plans on gifting the community’s youth with a recreational center, an idea she envisioned during the 2020 trip to her native land.
“I came to get ideas and you guys gave me a lot of great ideas on creating a building here in Trinidad where young people can go to and have recreational fun.”

Nicki spent a considerable amount of quality time with the young girls of St. Judes Trinidad with a peep talk touching on topics like career and relationships. She warned the adolescents about their bonds with young boys, giving them the early game on how to present themselves as secure young ladies.

“One thing I learned about love is that anybody that really loves you is willing to wait,” she said. Anybody that’s forcing you or pressuring you into anything does not love you.”

She continued, “One of the things I realized as well is you think for some strange reason that these boys are so amazing and they’re so this and they’re so that and that you ain’t gonna find nobody else, but you will.”

Nicki Minaj Petty Apologizes for Her Husband at Carnival

Oh, Ken Petty? That ain’t nothing… He really just don’t be knowing.

It must be hard being Nicki Minaj’s husband. People always grabbing at her and while most of them just want to show love… you never know who the cooky person with ill intentions might be. There are plenty of examples. Think Selena. Nipsey Hussle. Pop Smoke. Martin Luther King, Jr. Malcolm X. They get in close spaces and they can jam you up, so who blames a loved one for being on high alert.

Even at carnival.

The two are on a float this year at the Trinidad and Tobago carnival and everyone is enjoying their time on the floats, in costume, music pumping and behinds are jiggling. Nicki Minaj Petty shares a Trinidadian heritage, but her hubby…. not so much.

A Trini singer named Iwer George grabs Nicki to get close in the party. But Kenneth Petty, the “Anaconda” singer’s husband was like hold your horses.

In a video shared on social media, he seems to have pushed his arm away from his new bride. Fans responded almost in disgust, and one person even wrote on Instagram, “come again ….tell petty loosen up a bit.”

While we expected Nicki aka the Clap Back Queen to jump in and get buck, she actually was able to tap into some emotional maturity and de-escalate the whole situation with her witty humor and charm, “Oh gawd. Allyuh like sh*t eh? I go cuz all yuh real fkn stink yuh know?” she wrote. “He don’t understand anything about our culture. I apologize on his behalf. He’s always in security mode. All love. Love my country to death. Love my ppl to death. Period … I should’ve told him it’s a very comfortable family atmosphere. He’s never been to a carnival in his life. Not even in Brooklyn babe.”

The couple does look good…

But why he so hot (like in so many clothes)… and why he so mad…
