*A recent petition calling for Nicki Minaj and her husband, Kenneth Petty, to move out of their posh Hidden Hills neighborhood appears to be an elaborate troll job from a Cardi B fan, according to TMZ.
The change.org petition thought to be from Hidden Hills resident Beverly Barden, began circulating online late last week. It encouraged neighbors to contact the Hidden Hills Community Association with any complaints about the couple, since Kenneth is a registered sex offender. His conviction in New York of attempted rape in 1995 landed him in prison for more than 4 years.
But when TMZ contacted the HHCA, an official told the outlet they were unaware of the petition, or of a resident named Beverly Barden. TMZ noted: “We’ve checked and there is no public listing of a Beverly Barden in Hidden Hills, and when ya think about it … the name does seem like a play off the Bardi Gang, the name Cardi’s fans use.”
TMZ also dug up a December 2022 tweet linking to the change.org petition, which came with the message: “We, as nicki antis, can turn the residents of Hidden Hills AGAINST Nicki and her pedo husband moving in, hurting her assets in the process.”
The petition, titled “SAY NO TO SEX OFFENDERS IN HIDDEN HILLS,” was tweeted out just days after Nicki and Kenneth purchased their Hidden Hills mansion for $19.5 million in December. Kenneth is currently serving one year of home detention for failing to register as a sex offender in California.
The way Beverly seems to see it … the mere presence of Nicki and Kenneth in Hidden Hills would hurt home values and create safety concerns.
Beverly is encouraging Nicki’s neighbors to warn residents about Kenneth … and she wants folks to sign the petition to “SHOW that you are against sex offenders in our Hidden Hills neighborhood!”
At least 862 had signed the petition by the time TMZ discovered the tomfoolery behind it.
