NEW YORK, NEW YORK - FEBRUARY 12: Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty attend the Marc Jacobs Fall 2020 runway show during New York Fashion Week on February 12, 2020 in New York City.

Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, wants his name off of the New York’s Sex Offender Registry; he claims that he never had a chance to fight the charge, according to new legal documents obtained by TMZ.

Petty is suing the State of New York and its Criminal Justice Services division to have his name removed from the sex offender’s registry, because he claims he never got notice of a hearing about it back in October 2004 while he was incarcerated, per TMZ.

According to the legal documents obtained by the outlet, the hearing offered an opportunity to challenge the risk level assigned to him, and he was categorized as a level 2 sex offender at the time but Petty claims he never actually got the hearing notice due to an address mishap.
