Cardi B and Nicki Minaj’s husband’s husbands Offset and Kenneth ‘Zoo’ Petty are embroiled in a legal battle in which the latter was handed a 120-day house arrest sentence.
On Wednesday, the Central District of California Court ordered Kenneth to strap on a home-monitoring device and serve about four months of house arrest for threatening Offset via social media on September 16 – according to THR.
The 45-year-old Queens native’s public threats – which included ‘you gonna be planning your funeral p****’ – violated the terms of his probation stemming from failing to register as a sex offender in the state of California in 2020.
Petty – who was joined in the viral video by group of men – previously served a combined 11 years in prison for raping a 16-year-old girl in 1995 and shooting a man to death in 2002.
‘We gonna get you n****. We know where you at, what’s up? Let’s go. Let’s talk, p**** a** n****,’ the so-called ‘music industry professional’ taunted outside a Manhattan hotel.
‘Nobody hiding around here man. We outside. We ready, n****. I run this s*** n**** keep playing with me. Let’s play man, y’all wanna play? It’s all fun and games until we wanna play too…That whole gang can suck a d***…Up North I had you scared boy!’
The 31-year-old Georgia rapper reportedly responded at the time with a video implying Kenneth was broke: ‘I’m getting off a jet. He’s funny.’
On Wednesday, Offset (born Kiari Cephus) was too busy celebrating his sixth wedding anniversary with his ‘beautiful, gorgeous, pretty’ 30-year-old Grammy-winning wife at one of their three mansions.
Meanwhile, Petty’s 40-year-old Grammy-nominated wife took to Twitter on Wednesday to scoff: ‘You really gotta catch me while I care.’
On September 30, Nicki (born Onika Maraj) and her manager-turned-husband will celebrate the third birthday of their son nicknamed ‘Papa Bear.’
Minaj was only 16 when she first met Kenneth, and the couple celebrates their fourth wedding anniversary on October 21.
