After going on Instagram Live to threaten Offset, Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty violated the terms of his probation and has thus been placed on house arrest for 120 days.
The footage showed Petty out on the streets of New York at night surrounded by some of his associates. Rumors claim that the video was taken outside of the hotel Offset and Cardi B were staying at that night, but there has yet to be solid evidence of that. While on Instagram Live, Petty says to the camera “Sturdy, n****a. What’s poppin? Where n****as is at, man? Huh? Plan that vacation but we’re planning your funeral, p*ssy.”
Offset later took to his social media to show his followers that he is not phased by the drama. The video of the rapper included him laughing and walking off of a private jet while saying, “I’m getting off a jet, he’s funny. F*ck these n***as talkin’ ‘bout? These n***as broke! We hoppin’ off jets. Y’all n***as standing outside talkin’ ‘bout ‘outside.’ Extremely broke!”
Despite Offset being seemingly unbothered by the beef Petty served up in his Instagram Live Story, the courts saw the violation of his probation and took action against Petty. Petty had received 3 years of probation and 1 year of house arrest last July after moving into a California neighborhood which he failed to register as a sex offender. The sex offender status was slammed on Petty in 1995 along with his 4 year sentence to prison for attempted rape of a 16- year-old girl.
The court claims that Petty was under direct violation of his probation by threatening another individual. The court document was posted to Twitter yesterday, showing the court’s request for house detention.
It specifically said “Mr. Petty 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. As such, the Probation Officer believes placement in the Location Monitoring Program will effectively allow for closer monitoring of Mr. Petty’s activities, limit his movements, provide a sanction for his non-compliance, and hopefully encourage him to reflect upon and reevaluate his current status in the community.”
The document further specified that Petty did not appear in court or try to fight the request for home detention by stating: “the supervisee and the defense counsel consent to modification and waive a personal appearance before the Court.” LA Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald signed off on the document yesterday afternoon.
