Nicki Minaj’s husband accuser, Jennifer Hough, finally speaks up after she filed a lawsuit against the couple in August 2021.
Hough accused the couple of “witness intimidation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, harassment, assault, battery, sexual assault, and sexual harassment.”
In an interview with The Real, where Jennifer Hough made an appearance with her lawyer Tyrone A. Blackburn, she said she was tired of being afraid.
“I feel like the actions that were taken in regards to this whole situation put me in a different type of fear at my age, and it was wrong. The only way not to be afraid is to continue to speak up,” she said.
Recalling the time that Petty raped her, Hough mentioned that it was before school that year. She encountered him at a bus stop, where he put ‘an object’ in her back and forced her into a nearby house.
“I knew what he wanted,” Hough explained. “He pushed me down on the bed, we wrestled for my clothes.” She said after Petty was done with her, he stood up, went to the nearby mirror and said: “I’m the man, I’m the man.”
The harassment suit filed against Minaj, 38, and Petty, 43, states that the duo intimidated Hough “directly and indirectly”, pressuring her to not speak about her 1994 rape charges against Petty after the case became public knowledge on social media.
Still speaking with The Real, Hough revealed that an associate of Minaj and Kenneth Petty came to her home and put $20,000 in her lap in exchange for her silence.
She went on to reveal that she declined the offer and later received a message from the associate stating that she “should’ve taken the money because they are going to put that money on my head.”
According to the suit filed on 13 August, “Plaintiff [Hough] has not worked since May of 2020 due to severe depression, paranoia, constant moving, harassment, and threats from the Defendants [Minaj and Petty] and their associates. She is currently living in isolation out of fear of retaliation.”
Nicki Minaj and her husband, Kenneth Petty, got married in October 2019, and they have a son together.
