Kenneth Petty, the husband of Nicki Minaj, has been ordered to serve 120 days of home detention after violating the terms of his probation by posting clips on social media that appeared to threaten Offset.
In a court order filed Wednesday in the Central District of California, Petty was ordered to undertake home monitoring after he “was recorded on video making threatening remarks to a specific individual while in the company of someone with a criminal record.” The specific individual mentioned in the order is Offset, and the clips relate to a series of messages Petty aimed at the rapper that appeared on social media Sept. 16.

The filing states that Petty’s 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.”
Petty agreed to the modification terms and waived a personal appearance before the court. Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald ordered Petty to serve up to 120 days of house arrest.
