After the VMAs, Cardi B shared a vague tweet that hinted there may have been some tension during the show, which was hosted by Nicki Minaj. “I don’t hesitate at all,” she wrote.
Petty and some of his associates later held this position. Petty then warned Offset, without directly naming him, that he needed to consider “planning your funeral.” In the video, with a slightly veiled threat, a different man says, “Don’t let us off the set, n***a.”
Offset responded by posting a video of himself disembarking from his private jet. “We’re getting off the jet… (they’re) standing outside,” offset laughed. Petty attempted to further escalate the situation by sharing alleged DMs between himself and Offset, who asked where he was “located” at one point.
“I’m an outsider gangster,” Petty wrote. “Shut the fuck up you idiot. You get no payback for killing your own people. If you want bullshit then try me.” Offset did not respond to the apparent reference to Takeoff’s murder, but he criticized Petty for “talking nonsense about a woman”.
After a long period of wandering, Petty was ordered to house arrest for up to 120 days.
“Mr. Petty was recorded on video making threatening comments toward a specific individual while in the company of someone with a criminal record,” the order signed by Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald said. “This recent violating conduct raises concerns over Mr. Petty’s willingness to comply with court orders. As such, the probation officer believes that placement in the location monitoring program will effectively provide close monitoring of Mr. Petty’s activities.” “, limit his activities, provide a sanction for his non-compliance, and hopefully encourage him to consider and re-evaluate his current status in the community.”
Last year, Petty was ordered to one year of home confinement and three years of probation after failing to register as a sex offender in California.
