"Why are you pointing a gun at him," she can be heard shouting. "No. No. Let me record it. No. No. No. No [inaudible]. This is crazy, this is crazy. He’s not armed. My husband is not armed," according to the Daily Mail.
Offset released a statement about the rally incident, Billboard reported.
"Artist and Philanthropist Offset was detained by the Beverly Hills Police Department following an attack by aggressive Trump supporters," it read.
"He was released shortly thereafter.

The footage emerged after the Migos star shot a video he posted to Instagram Live, showing officers at his video after they pulled him over.
The clip shows cops ordering him to turn off his engine and step out of the car, which the rapper refused to do.
When one of the police officers says Offset was “waving guns at people,” he claims that Trump supporters used a flag to strike his car.
Offset, whose real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus, utters various defiant and threatening statements during the livestream.
The 28-year-old rapper tells police, “You told me to put my hands up, I'm not doing that. There's 25,000 people on my livestream. You're gonna get sued publicly.”Offset drove by a Trump rally in Beverly Hills, California Credit: Instagram Police asked Offset to turn off his engine and get out of his car, but the rapper refusedCredit: The Mega Agency
When an officer tries to reach into Offset’s vehicle and open the door, the rapper says, “You can’t do that! It’s not legal!”
“I'm gonna sue the s**t outta you. Y’all know who I am?” he added.
During his Instagram Live, Offset also says, “I'm a f**king celebrity, do you know who I am? I'm Offset from Migos.”

Another video seen by the Daily Mail shows Trump supporters waving flags at Offset as cops handcuff him.
Offset appeared to have been detained, but Beverly Hills police Lt. Max Subin told CBSLA that reports that the rapper was arrested are “inaccurate."
However, Cardi's cousin Marcelo Almánzar, 20, was arrested on felony suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon and carrying a loaded firearm in public, reports say.
A Trump supporter reported that a car with two men in it pointed a gun at them, cops said – but "the victim of the crime did not desire to press charges for the pointing of the weapon."
Cardi did an Instagram video of her own on Saturday showing herself sitting in the back of a Rolls Royce driving through Beverly Hills.
Cardi B says, “I don’t like this!” as she passes the same Trump rally.
It was not immediately known if she was in the same car as Offset.
Bystanders recorded other videos of Cardi B at the scene.
