Hidden Hills Residents Demand Nicki Minaj’s Eviction Over Safety Concerns
In Hidden Hills, tensions rise as residents express their concerns over the arrival of music icon Nicki Minaj and her husband, Kenneth Petty, a convicted felon.
A petition has been circulating online, attracting hundreds of signatures from locals who are urging the couple to leave the prestigious neighbourhood.
Initiated by Hidden Hills resident Beverly Bardan, the petition highlights the main issue: Kenneth Petty’s status as a registered sex offender.
Petty’s conviction dates back to 1995 in New York, where he was found guilty of attempted rape, resulting in a prison sentence exceeding four years.
Recently, Petty filed legal documents to update his address on the Megan’s Law website, causing alarm among neighbours.
In December of last year, Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty purchased an extravagant mansion in Hidden Hills.
However, it is worth noting that Kenneth is currently serving one year of home detention in California for failing to comply with sex offender registration requirements.
Beverly Bardan, the petitioner, expresses her concern that the presence of Nicki and Kenneth in Hidden Hills may adversely affect property values and jeopardize the safety of the community.
She actively encourages fellow neighbours to inform residents about Petty’s background and urges them to sign the petition, emphasizing the need to “show that you are against sex offenders in our Hidden Hills neighbourhood!”
Titled “SAY NO TO SEX OFFENDERS IN HIDDEN HILLS,” the petition gained significant traction following Nicki Minaj’s acquisition of her $19.5 million estate. Over the past few days, it has gathered over 100 signatures, bringing the total to 862 and continuing to rise.
Hidden Hills has become a sought-after enclave, attracting numerous celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Kris Jenner, Will Smith, and Jada Pinkett Smith.
With the arrival of Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty, the community finds itself grappling with the delicate balance between maintaining exclusivity and addressing valid safety concerns raised by the residents.
