Nicki Minaj’s Husband Placed On House Arrest Following Threats Directed At Offset


Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, has found himself back in prison, albeit in a different form. Petty has been put on home detention for up to 120 days due to his threatening behavior towards Offset on social media. This violation of his federal probation has led to a judge ordering Petty to be placed on house arrest for a period of four months to closely monitor his activities.

Key Takeaway

Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, is placed on house arrest after making threatening remarks towards Offset on social media. This violation of his federal probation has resulted in a four-month period of close monitoring of his activities.

The incident began when Petty posted a video on Instagram in which he, along with two associates, made threatening remarks towards Cardi B’s husband, Offset. The video showed the trio standing across the street from an NYC hotel where Offset was believed to be staying. The menacing behavior caught the attention of authorities, leading to this legal action.

Offset responded to the incident by posting his own video on social media, showing himself laughing outside his private jet, which was clearly nowhere near the hotel. While Offset seemed to find the situation amusing, the authorities took it very seriously.

As a result, Petty is now subject to house arrest, during which his activities will be closely monitored. There is also the possibility that he may be required to wear an electronic GPS ankle bracelet, although this has not been confirmed yet.

Petty’s legal troubles are not new, as he has a history of convictions for attempted rape and attempted murder. He has previously served two prison sentences. In 2022, he was sentenced to three years probation for failing to register as a sex offender in California.

It remains to be seen how this latest legal setback will impact Nicki Minaj and her ongoing relationship with Kenneth Petty. Petty’s actions on social media have had serious consequences, emphasizing the importance of adhering to the terms of probation and avoiding threatening behavior.
