Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth ‘Zoo’ Petty has been sentenced after making online threats against Cardi B’s husband Offset.
Both Minaj, 40, and Cardi B, 30, have been embroiled in a feud for years which has spilled over and led to a legal situation between their husbands.
Petty, who is a registered sex offender, was filmed on Instagram Live making an array of threats against the Migos rapper.
In the clip, Petty, 45, appears to be standing on an empty street outside what is believed to be Offset's hotel in New York City at around 4.00am in the morning with a couple of unidentified friends of his. Watch the video below:
A handful of videos from the Instagram Live made the rounds across social media on Friday (15 September).
In one of the videos, Petty, who shares a son with Minaj, can be heard saying: "Plan that vacation, you gonna be planning your funeral p***y! We out here to talk, right? Let's talk, but you know we ain't talking, though."
Shortly after Petty's video made its rounds across the internet, Offset appeared to have responded on his own social media accounts.
The Grammy-nominated musician, who shares two children with the 'Bongos' rapper, filmed himself leaving his private jet, seemingly unbothered by the beef as he laughed at Petty and his 'broke' entourage for attempting to wait outside his hotel for him.
On Wednesday (20 September) the Central District of California Court ordered Petty to wear a home-monitoring device and serve 120 days of house arrest for threatening Offset on social media.
Petty has a long rap sheet - he previously served a total of 11 years in prison for the first-degree attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl in 1995 and for manslaughter in 2002.
In July 2022 Petty was sentenced to three years probation after pleading guilty to failing to register as a sex offender in the state of California in 2020.
Minaj and Petty will celebrate the third birthday of their son nicknamed 'Papa Bear' on September 30. The little boy's real name has not been made public.
The 'Super Freaky Girl' rapper was only 16 when she first met Petty and the couple will celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary on October 21.
