Following his marriage to Minaj, he was then arrested for a third time after failing to register as a sex offender in California, where he moved to with his wife.

Under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, offenders are legally required to update registration in “each jurisdiction they reside, are employed, or attend school.”
