Nicki Minaj’s Husband Ordered to Be on House Arrest for Offset Threats
UPDATE (Sept. 21):
Cardi B has weighed in on Nicki Minaj's husband's current legal situation.
On Thursday (Sept. 21), blogger Ken Barbie commented on a tweet from legal reporter Meghan Cuniff, which seemed to shut down rumors that Offset filed a report against Kenneth Petty for threatening the rapper, which led to him violating his probation.
"THANK YOU! Because they’re definitely trying to flip the narrative like this man didn’t do what he did on Instagram and tag every blog in it," Barbie tweeted. "Be mad at him and HIS friends"
ORIGINAL STORY (Sept. 21):
Nicki Minaj's Husband Violates Probation With Offset Threats
On Wednesday (Sept. 20), federal judge Michael W. Fitzgerald signed off on an order to place Kenneth Petty under up to 120 days of home detention due to his part in a recent viral video of multiple men threatening Offset.
"Mr. Petty was recorded on video making threatening remarks towards specific individual while in the company of someone with a criminal record," the motion, which was obtained by XXL on Thursday (Sept. 21), reads. "The recent violations [of] conduct raises some concerns over Mr. Petty's willingness to comply with the court's orders. As such, the probation officers believes placement in the Location Monitoring Program will effectively allow for closer monitoring of Mr. Petty's activities, limit movements, provide a sanction for his non-compliance and hopefully encourage him to reflect upon and reevaluate his current status in the community."
"Kenny Petty shall participate for a period of up to 120 days in a home detention program which may include electronic monitoring, GPS, Alcohol Monitoring Unit or automated identification system and shall observe all rules of such program as directed by the probations officer," the motion continues.
In March of 2020, Petty was indicted for failing to register as a sex offender in California. He struck a deal with prosecutors in August of 2021 and pleaded guilty to failing to register the following month.
XXL has reached out to Nicki Minaj's team for comment.
