According to TMZ, Petty sued the State of New York and its Criminal Justice Services division in August to have his name removed from the New York's Sex Offender Registry, claiming he never got the chance to legally challenge certain aspects of his sex offender status.
The same day he entered his latest plea, Petty's wife revealed she was pulling out of Sunday's MTV VMAs, despite never having been on the confirmed list of performers in the first place. She did not say why.
When a fan asked on Twitter if she would be performing, she retweeted the post and replied: "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."
Childhood friends Minaj and Petty started dating in December 2018, announcing they had officially married the following October. They share a one-year-old son — nicknamed "Papa Bear" — whose named they have not yet revealed.
