Kenneth Petty, the 41-year-old husband of Trinidadian rapper Nicki Minaj, is now officially listed as a sex offender in the US state of California on Monday (March 9), following his arrest last week.

Petty is listed in the California Department of Justice’s database – his offense is entered as “attempted rape by force or fear.”

Petty, who had just returned with his wife from Trinidad Carnival, was placed in federal custody last Wednesday (March 4) for failing to catalogue himself as a sex offender in California following his move from New York, where he is already registered.

The man, convicted in 1995 of attempting to rape a 16-year-old girl, reportedly turned himself in.

The mugshot, released by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), shows Petty with sullen eyes in a black shirt.
