Kenneth Petty, the husband of renowned artist Nicki Minaj, has been sentenced to 120 days of house arrest following the issuance of threatening messages towards Offset, the husband of fellow rapper Cardi B. The incident gained attention after a viral video showcased Petty in the company of an individual with a criminal record, during which he made menacing remarks towards Offset and boldly suggested a physical confrontation.
A court order, filed in the Central District of California on Wednesday, stipulated that Petty must undergo home monitoring due to his involvement in a series of messages directed at Offset that were shared on various social media platforms on September 16. These messages were deemed threatening, leading to the legal action taken against Petty.
The news of Petty’s house arrest has sparked a flurry of discussion and debate among Twitter users who support both Offset and Kenneth Petty. A particularly popular tweet that humorously alludes to Offset having the last laugh has garnered significant attention and amusement from numerous individuals.
Fans of Nicki Minaj have expressed their disappointment, believing that she should not have been associated with Kenneth Petty in the first place, and is now dealing with the repercussions of his actions. The sentiment among some Twitter users is that Minaj is left to “clean up his mess.”
Adding to the discussion, a prominent Twitter user remarked on the situation, stating, “What’s truly disheartening is that Cardi B and Offset did not engage with Nicki Minaj’s husband. A federal judge simply observed the immature behavior online and ordered him to remain confined to his home for three months.”
