Nicki Minaj's husband, Kenneth Petty, has been sentenced to four months of house arrest after violating his probation by posting threatening videos on social media.
The Central District of California issued the order, stating that Petty had made threatening remarks in the company of someone with a criminal record. The probation officer recommended house arrest to closely monitor his activities and restrict his movement.
The court hopes that this will encourage Petty to reflect on his actions and reevaluate his status in the community.
This incident also violated Petty's three-year probation order, which began in July 2022 when he failed to register as a sex offender in California.
A petition was circulated by residents who wanted the couple removed from the area due to Petty's sex offender status. Over 500 people signed the petition after Petty updated his address on the Megan's Law website. Hidden Hills is home to many high-profile celebrities, including Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Will Smith. Overall, Petty's violation of probation has led to a four-month house arrest sentence.
Additionally, this incident adds to the ongoing feuds and controversies surrounding Minaj, Cardi B, and Petty. The couple has also faced neighborhood backlash due to Petty's sex offender status.
