A Los Angeles federal judge has ordered Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, to serve “up to” 120 days in house arrest for “making threatening remarks toward Offset, Cardi B’s husband.
Kenneth Petty has consequences to pay for his remarks toward Offset.
According to an order signed by Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald. “Petty, who also goes by Zoo and is a convicted sex offender, “was recorded on video making threatening remarks towards a specific individual while in the company of someone with a criminal record. This recent violation conduct raises concerns over Mr. Petty’s willingness to comply with the Court’s orders.”
Court reporter extraordinaire Meghann Cuniff pointed out on Wednesday night that “The individual is Offset, Cardi B’s husband.”
It’s not clear as to what Petty said about Offset on social media that got him the punished with house arrest. However, one of his associates tagged Cardi B in a threatening Instagram Stories post over the weekend, writing, “@iamcardib we ain’t ya average Queens n****as Big Dawg s**t.”
In a video, Petty said he was looking for Offset. He also warned that he would be “planning your funeral” soon.
A string of surfaced DMs between Petty and Offset also went viral on social media. “Where you located,” Offset asked in one of them. “You n***as old ash in female business with no money for war. Don’t post me either since you a gangsta right.”
“I’m outside gangster,” Petty wrote in one reply. “Shut the fuck up n***a. You ain’t get no get back for dem n***as killing your people try me if you want p***y.”
