According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, is asking a court for permission to travel out of the country so he can join her on tour in Europe. He says he’ll be needed overseas.

Perry isn’t just looking to globe-trot with Nicki for fun—on the contrary, he says it’s necessary to join her on the European leg of her “Pink Friday 2” world tour for several reasons, mainly to provide childcare for their son.

The start date he lists for the anticipated travel schedule is April 17, 2024 … and he says there will be stops in Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Austria, Ireland, Switzerland, and Romania.


Petty says he plans to return to the U.S. by July 14, 2024, right after the tour wraps up, hoping for a green light to join his wife. According to the court documents, his probation officer hasn’t objected to his travel request. However, if Kenneth’s request gets approved, he’ll likely need to provide the officer with a detailed travel itinerary and check in once he’s back.

As previously reported, Kenneth is currently serving three years probation for failing to register as a sex offender in California. If a judge doesn’t sign off on the request, Perry will not be joining his wife on her world tour.
