Nicki Minaj and her husband Kenneth Petty are being sued by Jennifer Hough, Petty's alleged rape victim, who has claimed that Nicki and Kenneth have harrassed her and threatened her to not speak about the incident. As a result, she has suffered emotional distress. According to Allhiphop, Petty was convicted of first degree attempted rape in 1995 and this is why he has to register as a sex offender.
In new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Hough alleges that the harassment started after Petty and Minaj began dating in late 2018. Minaj defended Petty and claimed Hough had recanted her story, which she denies.
In March 2020, after Petty was arrested for failing to register as a sex offender, Hough claims Minaj tried to get her to recant her rape claims by offering to fly her and her family to L.A. Hough rejected the offer and within days, she and her family “suffered an onslaught of harassing calls and unsolicited visits.”
