ABOUT THE FATHER
Petty was required under law to register in California after moving there from New York in July 2019 but failed to do so. On November 15, 2019, he was pulled over by Beverly Hills Police for failing to sign his name in the registry. On March 4 this year, Petty was arrested on March 4 by U.S. Marshals on an indictment for the same and was later released on a $20,000 bond, according to the Sun.
He also pleaded guilty to the first-degree manslaughter following the fatal shooting of a man named Lamont Robinson on April 27, 2002, according to the criminal complaint from the Queens County District Attorney. According to the complaint, Petty shot Robinson “with a loaded handgun (sic) multiple times thereby causing his death”. He was originally charged with murder in the second degree. However, after he struck a manslaughter deal with prosecutors, in 2006 he was sentenced to 10 years in prison, of which he served seven.
Petty was released from prison in May 2013 and had been on supervised release for five years up until May 2018.
After she began dating him, Minaj slammed fans who criticized Petty’s past. “He was 15, she was 16… in an exceeding relationship. Y’all can’t even run y’all own life,” Minaj said in December 2018, the identical month during which TMZ broke the news that Petty and Minaj were together since they are children.
Long before her rapping career took off, Minaj and Petty, whom she prefers to call by his nickname ‘Zoo’ were a thing when they both were still living in Queens. Minaj was 16 years old at the time.
Minaj went public with the news of her marriage on October 22, showing off gifts of matching “Mr. and Mrs.” mugs along with “Bride” and “Groom” caps in a video. “We’ll definitely do the paperwork portion of the marriage, but the actual wedding, I don’t know,” she told The Shade Room. “You know when you’re a little girl and you want this big beautiful wedding, and I used to think I was one of those girls, I always wanted the fairytale. But then the things that used to matter to you don’t matter as much.”
