The previous convictions of 28-year-old Kempson, who killed Millane in December 2018, also came to light when his identity was leaked.
Kempson raped another British tourist eight months before his attack on Millane.
He took the woman on a Tinder date in April 2018 before taking her back to his motel room in Auckland, a city on the country's North Island.
The woman had initially kept the attack a secret, but after reporting the day Kempson was charged, she went to the police to report what had happened.
Kempson was eventually sentenced to three and a half years in prison for rape last month. The case was not made public at the time.
Shortly after Kempson was named on Monday, the Guardian reported on some of the remarks made in court when this earlier conviction was pronounced.
The newspaper reported that Judge Geoffrey Venning said in a New Zealand Supreme Court: “Your mother turned you down; This could help explain your attitude towards women. "
The victim also reportedly said in a statement read in court that she "cried and screamed" with flashbacks about the rape.
"Every time I went to sleep I saw your eyes pop out of your head and stare at me angrily," she said.
The victim described how she checked three times after the attack that the door of her house was locked in the evening, but also how she recovered with the help of her partner.
According to the Guardian, part of her statement read, “I'm not scared. I am strong. I'm not alone. I am loved
"I can look forward to my life so much and I won't look back. You no longer have any power over me."
In a second separate trial earlier this year, which has just been released, Kempson was convicted of terrorism against his girlfriend in 2017.
The previous two convictions mean that Kempson is serving 11 years concurrently with the minimum sentence of 17 years for Millane's murder.
