To the fans of Nicki Minaj who were expecting her to pull an energetic and thrilling performance at the 2021 MTV VMAs, sorry for the disappointment because she isn’t performing, neither is she pulling up any surprise performance at the awards show. And now, some fans think she has pulled out of the MTV VMAs performance over her husband, Kenneth Petty‘s legal issues. Kenneth has become one of Nicki’s problems and until she gets rid of him, she might keep pulling out of such performances and events.
It appears that the man Nicki Minaj has taken and gotten married to is giving her more problems and messing up her peaceful life than she thought. Kenneth Petty is currently battling with the law over his refusal to register as a sex offender after moving and joining his wife, Nicki Minaj in California in 2019. Kenneth thought he could be smart and outsmart the law but that never happened as he’s now facing up to ten years in federal prison if found guilty on the next court hearing in January 2022. So you see, Nicki Minaj is obviously not a happy wife at the moment, and the thought that her husband could be put behind bars for years is probably what led to her pulling out of the 2021 MTV VMAs performance.
US Weekly reports that if Kenneth Petty is lucky and finds favor in the eyes of the Judge, he could be handed as little as five years of supervised release and a $100 court assessment fee but if not lucky, of which I think he won’t, he could be handed a maximum sentence of ten years in federal prison and a lifetime of supervised release and a whopping $250,000 fine or “twice the gross loss resulting from the offense”. Kenneth Petty is really in a mess and it’s my wish he’s handed the minimum sentence because of the love I’ve got for Nicki Minaj.
Aside from the above problem hanging around the neck of Kenneth Petty, the couple has also been sued by Jennifer Hough — Kenneth’s attempted rape victim over claims that the couple threatened and harassed her to change her rape allegation story. There could be other reasons why Nicki Minaj has pulled out of the 2021 MTV VMAs performance but these two problems are definitely among a couple of reasons behind her pull out. Nicki is probably not a multitasker. She cannot be performing at the MTV VMAs and at the same time thinking of how to get her husband out of the grips of the law. She wants to stay focused on the legal matters hanging around their necks.
The public never knew that Nicki Minaj was billed to perform at the 2021 MTV VMAs until she responded to one of her curious fans on Twitter who asked her whether she’s performing at the MTV VMAs or not. Nicki responded and let everyone know that she isn’t performing at the VMAs and then thanked television producer Bruce Gillmer in her response tweet. Also, she said she would explain why she has pulled out another day.
Nicki reponded: “I just pulled out. I’ll explain why another day. But I love those guys at MTV. Thank you Bruce. I love you so much. Next year we there baby.”
Two legal issues chasing Nicki Minaj and her husband but let’s hope these legal matters are settled by early or middle of next year so that Nicki can pull a great performance at the 2022 MTV VMAs. If not, then she’s likely to also pull out next year, that’s if organizers of the VMAs would bill her to perform.
