Petty, 42, is currently free on bond as he awaits trial for failing to register as a sex offender in California after he and Minaj, 37, moved to the state last summer from his native New York, where he was convicted of attempted rape of a minor in 1995.

The terms of his pretrial bond release require Petty to stay in California and obey a curfew. But he sought permission to travel with his wife on business, serving as her manager, so he can be present when the "Starships" rapper goes into labor in a few months.

According to TMZ, Petty had the terms of his release amended on Friday, July 31, enabling him to travel with Minaj "periodically on business trips as her manager," which will ensure he is present when she goes into labor.

Other pretrial conditions will stay in place, meaning Petty can't use illicit substances and will continue to wear an ankle monitor.

He was granted access to the internet and social media apps in March.

The news comes days after Minaj confirmed rumors suggesting she is expecting the couple's first child by sharing photos from a fun maternity shoot.

The couple tied the knot last October.

A post shared by Barbie (@nickiminaj) on

She previously sparked pregnancy speculation in early May, when she tweeted, "No throwing up. But nausea and peeing non stop. Omg what do u think this means guys????"

Minaj then teased she would be sharing a baby bump photo "in a couple months", adding: "The world ain't ready yet" and she asked fans for tips on the size bra to wear to fit her swollen boobs.
 

The "Anaconda" hitmaker has had motherhood on her mind for years. Back in 2014 she told Complex magazine, "(I fear) I'll become so consumed with work that I'll forget to live my personal life to the fullest. If I'm done with my fifth album and I don't have a child by then, no matter how much money I have, I would be disappointed, as a woman, because I feel like I was put here to be a mother..."

She added, "I definitely will be married before I have my baby. I want to make sure I do it in that order. I've always felt like that since I was young; my mother always put that in my head."

Minaj and Petty tied the knot in October 2019.

Remember the hackers who attacked a New York City law firm that represents bold name celebrities and pro athletes?

The hacker group, which calls itself REvil, hacked into the computer network at the prestigious law firm owned by Allen Grubman earlier this year.

They threatened to leak dirt on celebrities and politicians, such as President Trump, if they didn't receive ransom money by a certain date.

Well, the ransom wasn't paid, so the group posted a new message on the dark Web saying it will "auction" off the dirt it allegedly has on LeBron James, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, and others starting at $600,000 per star.

The group also threatened to auction off information on the Democratic Party, Sean Combs's Bad Boy Records and other companies for $1 million per company.

The group claims to have information pertaining to the Democrats bribing celebrities and sexual harassment by top politicians.

The group wrote: "Bribery celebrity's [sic] by the Democratical [sic] party, sexual harassment by top politicians, envy of celebrity’s for each other ... all of that is waiting for you in files of Grubman company."

It isn't clear which media outlet or blog has that kind of cash in today's economy to pay for dirt on washed up rappers (Nicki) and pro athletes who are nearing retirement (LeBron).

Rapper Nicki Minaj is loving her life as a married woman and an expectant mother.

The "Starships" hitmaker married Kenneth Petty last year and, even though they've had their ups and downs, Nicki is very satisfied being married.

Nicki gushed over her husband during an interview with Lil Wayne on his "Young Money Radio with Lil Wayne" podcast on Apple Music on Friday.

She also seemed to confirm rumors she is pregnant with her and Kenny's first child.

"I didn't think it would be as refreshing and calming as it is," she said. "Even if you're not married, when you have someone that feels like your soulmate or someone who understands you, it just makes you feel like you're on top of the world."

The "Megatron" star's fans speculated that she could be pregnant, as she concealed her belly in many scenes in her latest music video for the song "Trollz" with troubled rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine.

Last month (May20), fans asked Nicki outright if she was expecting a child, to which she quipped back: "The world ain't ready yet."

Did you really think Jay-Z would let Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj beat his wife, Beyonce, to the top of the Billboard chart?

Doja and Nicki made history this week when their remix "Say So" raced to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, easily defeating Beyonce and newcomer Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage" remix.

Billboard is now investigating an anonymous tip that Doja and Nicki may have purchased illegitimate streams from fans outside the US.

Tweets have surfaced about fans using VPN's (Virtual Private Networks) to make it seem like they are in the US when they are not.

If true, @DojaCat & @NickiMinaj's long awaited #1 will be taken from them and removed from the charts, making Beyonce and Megan No. 1.

Coincidentally, Jay-Z was accused of falsifying streams for his TIDAL streaming app.

Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj pulled a huge upset over Beyonce and Megan Thee Stallion by beating them to the top of the Billboard chart.

The duo scored their first number one on the Billboard Hot 100 with their remix "Say So".

Neither artist has ever topped the chart before and their collaboration kept Megan Thee Stallion and Beyonce's remix "Savage" from reaching No. 1.

Doja Cat's track wasn't even in the top five a week ago, but Minaj's remix dropped on May 1st and led to a surge in sales.

Minaj dropped a scathing diss about Beyonce that pushed "Say So" out ahead of "Savage".

"Why you talkin' 'bout who body fake? With all them fillers in your face, you just full of hate. That real ass ain't keep your nigga home. Now you're lookin silly, that's word to silicone..."

Speculation ran rampant that Nicki was dissing either Beyonce or talk TV guru Wendy Williams in the remix. But Nicki cleared the air by taking to Instagram and posting: "The line ain't about Wendy tho #SaySoRemix."

In other music news, The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" falls to three on the new Hot 100, while Drake's "Toosie Slide" and Roddy Ricch's "The Box" round out the top five.

Meanwhile, Drake has tied Madonna's record for the most Hot 100 top 10s of all-time with "Pain 1993", which features Playboi Carti. The track debuts at No. 7 on the new Hot 100 countdown and becomes his 38th top 10 track.
