Nicki Minaj’s Husband Kenneth Petty Has Been Given 1 Year Of House Arrest For Failing To Register As A Sex Offender
It’s no secret that Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth “Zoo” Petty has a, for lack of a better term, unsavory character biography. Okay fine, let’s cut right to the apple core – the man was once convicted of first-degree attempted rape and second-degree assault when he was a teen, and later pleaded guilty to manslaughter as an adult (those would be two separate incidents). Kenneth’s past has followed him around, literally. He registered as a sex offender in the state of New York, where he lived and where the assault took place back in 1994. But when he moved to Los Angeles with Nicki, his wife of a little less than three years, he failed to register as a sex offender in his new home state. California decided to punish Kenneth for his lack of accountability, and it’s entirely appropriate that his nickname is Zoo, because Kenneth is about to spend the next 12 months isolated in a climate-controlled human habitat.
Last week, we learned that there was trouble on the set of Aziz Ansari’s directorial debut film, Being Mortal, due to a complaint of “inappropriate behavior.” That’s pretty vague and could literally mean anything. Harassment? Bullying? Picking up a watering hose and pretending it’s a dick to get laughs from the crew? Well, it turned out, we discovered the Who of the situation much quicker than the What, when it was revealed the complaint was lodged against Bill Murray. Now we’re finding out the What, and what 71-year-old Bill allegedly did to get his ass bounced from the set was that he allegedly wouldn’t keep his hands to himself. Color me shocked that it was sexual harassment, and not verbal of a side of physical.
Warner Bros. decided it was time to hold the most dreaded board room meeting known to CEOs – the damage control conference – and discuss what has been going on with their Fantastic Beasts star Ezra Miller. Is that the type of meeting that has bagels and coffee, or is that more of a “lonely lukewarm carafe of tap water” kind of thing? Definitely the second.
Remember last year when, out of nowhere, Adele’s Instagram account threw up a picture of herself in a Jamaican flag bikini top and her hair in Bantu knots, all in celebration of the Notting Hill Carnival, and the internet asked, “Who is running Adele’s Instagram page???“. As it turns out, the answer is that it was probably Adele running it at the time. But she doesn’t run it anymore, thanks to a one-time picture post that had her people frantically scrambling to think of a new password and lock her out.
Last month, Virginia Giuffre filed a federal civil lawsuit against Prince Andrew, the man she has accused of sexually abusing her numerous times as a minor while in various residences belonging to the late Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. Andrew has done everything possible to avoid getting served with Virginia’s lawsuit. And he continues to evade process servers. He’s reportedly hiding out at his mummy’s lovely country home in Scotland. If avoiding Virginia’s lawsuit counted as work, Andrew would easily be the hardest-working royal.
Yesterday Chrissy Teigen emerged from her self-imposed internet hiatus to offer up a broad, sweeping apology, via Medium.com, to all the people she hurt with her mean tweets. This was a few weeks after Chrissy made a public apology (private apology still pending) to Courtney Stodden for bullying them online when they were a minor. If Chrissy was hoping her most recent apology might get some of her lost deal back, well – not so fast Chrissy. Because former season 8 Project Runway contestant Michael Costello has recently opened up about his alleged experience with Chrissy, and it’s not a good look.
