Nicki Minaj is blaming fellow rapper Cardi B for her husband’s house arrest.
Last week, Kenny “Zoo” Petty (center) was ordered to serve 120 days on home detention for violating the terms of his probation by threatening Cardi B’s husband, Offset (left).

“Mr. Petty was recorded on video making threatening remarks towards a specific individual while in the company of someone with a criminal record,” the order reads. “This recent violation conduct raises concerns over Mr. Petty’s willingness to comply with the Court’s orders.”
An LA federal judge has ordered Nicki Minaj's husband, Kenneth Petty, to serve "up to" 120 days on home detention for "making threatening remarks toward a specific individual while in the company of someone with a criminal record."

The “specific individual” is Offset, pictured with his wife, Cardi B, in Paris in July.
Kenny, 45, plead guilty to failing to register as a sex offender in California. The judge let him off easy with a year on house arrest.
Within a year of coming off house arrest, Kenny is back in the house for 4 months.
On Thursday, an angry Nicki shared a cryptic message on Instagram Stories that appeared to target Cardi B.
She wrote: “Can’t call the cops every time you flop.” The post seemingly refers to Cardi’s new single with Megan Thee Stallion, “Bongos”, which has yet to crack the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Kenny’s thug behavior earned him a “Donkey of the Day” label by Breakfast Club co-host Charlamagne.
“You begging to go to prison,” Charlamagne said. “It’s incredible to me that all these street dudes have let the Internet make them forget street rules. Number one, you should’ve been let go of all the childish ways of the street, first and foremost. That’s number one. But number two, I remember a time where folks wouldn’t talk about any dirt over the phone. Now y’all recording yourselves in 4K and posting it online?”
