Nicki Minaj & Husband Kenneth Petty Being Sued For Intimidating Sexual Assault Victim

Nicki Minaj and her husband, Kenneth Petty, are facing legal woes.

The 42-year-old musician and Kenneth, have been accused of bribery by a woman who Kenneth had sexually assaulted in 1994.

Filed by Jennifer Hough in a federal court in Brooklyn, the lawsuit alleges that Nicki and her associates have repeatedly reached out to her and to her family, trying to get her to issue a statement denying that the sexual assault occurred.

Via Variety, Jennifer is also stating that one associate of Nicki‘s in particular came to her house and offered her $20,000 to sign a document recanting the allegation. Nicki apparently also offered to film a video for Jennifer‘s daughter’s birthday.

In the court documents, Jennifer is also looking to hold Kenneth accountable for the 1994 sexual assault, using the New York State Child Victims Act. The act, signed into law in 2019, opened a two-year “lookback window” allowing victims of child sex abuse to file lawsuits that otherwise would fall outside the statute of limitations.

The deadline to file such lawsuits is Saturday, and the New York courts have been flooded with such claims in recent days. Another lawsuit using the same act was filed earlier this week.

The sexual assault case had resurfaced in 2018 when Nicki began dating Kenneth. Nicki then went on national radio claiming that he had been “falsely accused” of the crime.

Jennifer claims that she has been offered even more to recant her statement about the sexual assault, and revealed that she’s had to move three times in the space of a few months, and changed her phone number.

The lawsuit accuses Kenneth of sexual assault, and both him and Nicki of witness intimidation and harassment.

The intimidation claims first came to light earlier this year, and Jennifer is now taking legal action.
