'My husband is not armed': Distraught Cardi B begs Beverly Hills police ...

Cardi B had to be physically restrained on Saturday as she pleaded with police in Beverly Hills to release her rapper husband Offset, who had been detained on suspicion of waving a gun at supporters.

'That's my husband! Why are you pointing a gun at him?' she yelled, as she was held back by a friend.

The rapper appeared on the scene in her new black Rolls Royce and looked on as Offset argued with officers next to his orange Jeep.

Offset, 28, is heard telling the officers who ask him to step away from the car: 'I'm not going nowhere.'

His wife then shouts: 'Let me record this.'
