​ ​ ​ ​

Nicki Minaj just announced she will no longer be performing at this year's MTV Video Music Awards. The announcement comes shortly after reports that her husband Kenneth "Zoo" Petty pleaded guilty for failing to register as a sex offender in California.

All the deets inside...

Sorry Barbz! Nicki Minaj is no longer set to perform at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards ceremony, set to go down this Sunday.

A fan tweeted the QUEEN raprtress about performing at this year's show, which will be held inside Brooklyn's Barclays Center, and she announced she decided to pull out of performing. As for the reason? She said she'll explain another day. However, fans can expect her to hit the stage at the VMAs next year.

“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,” the "Seeing Green" raptress tweeted.

News of the 38-year-old Young Money emcee pulling out of the VMAs comes on the heels of reports about her husband Kenneth Petty's sex offender case. Just recently, the husband to the NYC raptress pleaded guilty during a virtual court hearing on a charge of failing to register as a sex offender in California.

You'll recall, Kenneth "Zoo" Petty, 43, struck a plea deal with the feds last month. However, he could still end up behind bars.

Mr. Petty agreed to plead guilty to one count of failing to register as a sex offender in California. In return, the feds will reportedly seek a sentence towards the low end of the guidelines. The maximum sentence allowed for the crime is 10 years in prison and a lifetime of supervised release.

His sentencing is scheduled for January 24, 2022, so he'll be home with Nicki and "Papa Bear" for the holidays.

In March 2020, Mr. Petty turned himself in to police after he was pulled over by police for a traffic stop in November 2019. Cops ran his name and realized he was a registered sex offender in New York, but failed to register in California after he moved there in 2019 with his wife.

Kenneth was convicted of first-degree attempted rape in 1995. According to reports, he served nearly 4 years in NY state prison and was required to register as a sex offender.

The rape victim has been vocal about allegedly being harassed and intimidated by Nicki and folks in her camp. She recently spoke out about an alleged recent threat on her life, claiming one of their associates threatened her with guns even after she filed a new lawsuit against them.
