Nicki Minaj and her husband Kenneth Petty are being sued and it’s by the woman he was convicted of attempting to rape in 1995.

According to TMZ, Jennifer Hough is alleging she is being intimated and harassed by The Pettys. Both directly and indirectly.
In formal papers filed, she claims she was threatened and advised to not speak about the incident. She says this caused her emotional distress.
In docs, Hough asserts that the drama began when Minaj and Petty reignited their relationship in 2018. Specifically, when Minaj allegedly made comments about how Petty was “wrongfully accused.”
Hough claims the rapper suggested she had denied the rape claims – something she insists she hadn’t.
Furthermore, Hough says that in March 2020 – following Petty’s arrest for failing to register as a sex offender – Minaj allegedly called her and offered to fly her and her family Los Angeles. This, allegedly in exchange for assisting Petty by recanting her rape claims.
According to Hough, when she denied the alleged offer, she and her family “suffered an onslaught of harassing calls and unsolicited visits” within days. She claims Minaj had folk reach out to her brother and offer a $500,000 payment in exchange for a statement withdrawing her rape allegations against Petty.
Hough also alleges in the filing that Minaj sent layers to her home to pressurize her into recanting; a development she says left her feeling panicked and unsafe. She ultimately moved from her home in August 2020, which she asserts was as a result of the worry.
She’s suing Minaj and Petty for intentional infliction of emotional distress, harassment, and witness intimidation. Additionally, she is suing Petty for sexual assault tied to the conviction in 1995.
