The harassment lawsuit filed against Nicki Minaj by her husband Kenneth Petty's alleged rape victim, Jennifer Hough, has been dropped. According to documents obtained by People.com, it was removed “without prejudice,” meaning claims can be refiled at any time, while the claims against her husband are still live.
The lawsuit claimed that Minaj and her husband, tried to threaten the woman into recanting her accusation of rape.
It also accused the couple of intentional infliction of emotional distress and alleged sexual assault and battery. The incident took place in 1994 and Hough was a minor at the time. Petty was convicted and spent four years in prison.
