ICYMI: Lawsuit Against Nicki Minaj Issued by Her Husband’s Sexual Assault Accuser is Dropped

Nicki Minaj's husband kenneth petty

Nicki Minaj was sued for harassment by the woman, Jennifer Hough, who accused her husband, Kenneth Petty, of sexual assault. According to TMZ, the suit is now dropped and Nicki’s legal team will now take aim at the woman to cover the legal fees.

The lawsuit was voluntarily dropped by Hough and no financial settlement was reached. The lawsuit for harassment against Petty remains.

In response, Minaj’s attorney, Judd Burstein, called the suit a shakedown and was aiming for a settlement since the start. Burstein wrote Hough’s lawyer, Tyrone Blackburn in an email, “In my view, your conduct in pursuing this case against Nicki represents the worst of our legal system: bottom-feeding lawyers who pursue frivolous actions against a celebrity assuming that they will be paid off if they throw enough dirt.”

He added, Minaj paid over $300,000 in legal fees. Hough stated Minaj attempted to pay her into changing her story about a 1995 attempted rape committed by Petty.

Minaj hasn’t issued a statement, simply opted to post a unicorn emoji.

Spotify’s RapCaviar Unveils Murals of the Mt. Rushmore of 2010s Rap ft. Drake, Nicki Minaj, J. Cole, and Kendrick Lamar

Mt. Rushmore of 2010s Rap

Last summer, Spotify’s Rap Caviar sparked the debates of the Mt. Rushmore of 2010s Rap. In the end, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, J. Cole, and Nicki Minaj received the honor.

Spotify has collaborated with local visual artists to create bespoke murals in each of the musicians’ hometowns to commemorate their reign. Starting today, passers-by in Toronto, Los Angeles, Raleigh, and New York should be on the lookout for these ‘Mt. Rapmore’ works of art.

Each mural was constructed in the likeness of each legend, hand-painted in areas close to each artist’s heart by Jeks One, Luke Pollard, Jacob Rochester, and Anderson Bluu.

Fans will be asked to scan a Snapcode when they visit the murals, which will question them what “their mood is today,” before shuffling through the artists’ discographies and arriving on an album that suits their mood, which fans can listen to straight on Spotify.

“When the initial Mt Rushmore of 2010s Rap viral moment happened, we knew it had become so big that it deserved a physical installation in the real world,” says Carl Chery, Spotify’s Creative Director & Head of Urban Music, adding “Nicki, Cole, Kendrick, and Drake came of age at the beginning of the 2010s, setting the tone for hip-hop in the streaming era, and now 12-years later they are each legends in their own right and pillars of the genre.  These murals are a celebration of their contributions, and we hope their locations in each artists’ hometown is meaningful to them and their fans.”

You can see the mural below and where you can find them in the rapper’s hometowns below.

Nicki Minaj Denies Being Gang Affiliated to Judge

Nicki Minaj's husband kenneth petty

Last year, Nicki Minaj and her husband Kenneth Petty were claimed to be gang members by Petty’s rape accuser, Jennifer Hough. According to All Hip Hop, Minaj denied the accusations to Judge Eric Vitaliano.

“I was quickly surrounded by my fans, particularly in this instance because my pink Rolls Royce was in the direct sightline of apartment buildings across the street from where I had stopped,” Minaj said. “While my husband and I recognized a few friends and acquaintances from the neighborhood that night, including Rico Danna, an artist whom I intend to sign to my label, none of them belong to any gang. Further, we did not plan to meet anyone in advance because we had not planned to stop there. Once I came out of the car, the news traveled quickly, and people just showed up.”

Minaj would add, “Neither I, my husband, nor anyone I knew made any “gang” signs that night. I did not mention [Hough] or this case that night. Nor did I hear anyone, including my husband, mention [Hough] or this case that night.”

Kenneth Petty and Nicki Minaj are currently battling a $20 million lawsuit. In a November court date, attorney Tyrone Blackburn, representing Jennifer Hough, presented the judge with a video, stating the two are affiliated with the Makk Balla Brims Blood gang of Queens, New York.

“[Kenneth] Petty and Maraj were both in this district, in Jamaica, Queens, New York. As seen on an Instagram live video currently up on Maraj’s Instagram page, both Maraj and Petty were seen associating with members of the Makk Ballers set of the Bloods Gang. Petty and Maraj are both members of this gang,” Blackburn said.

According to AllHipHop, the faction has been labeled the most dangerous criminal organization in New York, very organized and heavily involved in drugs, guns, and rap.

Blackburn added, “Shortly after Petty and Maraj are spotted with their gangster colleagues, a member of the gang posted a death threat to Ms. Hough on Twitter, stating: ‘Jennifer if you see this, the Makks are coming to get you.’”

Hough states Petty and Minaj recently offered her $500,000 to recant her story of being raped in 1994. PEtty accepted a plea deal to the charge in 1995 and spent four years in prison.

In September, PEOPLE states the 43-year-old pleaded guilty during a virtual hearing on Thursday with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California and now faces a max of 10 years in prison with a lifetime of supervised release.

According to PEOPLE, the sentencing will be on Jan. 24, 2022.

nicki minaj

Nicki Minaj was feeling festive this holiday season gifting the RHOP kids’ with designer accessories for Christmas. Nicki is a huge fan of the Bravo TV series Real Housewives of Potomac. She made a surprise appearance as guest co-host on the season 6 reunion show.

Solidifying her relationship with members of the cast she showered the kids of Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon, and Ashley Darby with Gucci gifts.

Gizelle Bryant shared a video of her three daughters excitement receiving their Gucci purses from the “Super Bass” rapper.

“I’m SPEECHLESS! So I’ve never bought my girls high end bags because I always wanted to keep them HUMBLE,” wrote Gizelle. “Always felt like humility and gratitude is way more important than stylin and profilin for children. So for their 1st @gucci bag to be gifted by the MEGA ICON SUPERSTAR @nickiminaj for Christmas is PRICELESS! Nicki my kids are screaming thru the house. You have made their YEAR! Thank you for being so sweet, this is beyond special!!”

Ashley Darby also revealed her gifts from Minaj, giving her praise for surprising her two sons with Gucci outerwear.

“Thank you for our adorable matching Gucci hat and scarf, @nickiminaj!!! So kind and thoughtful of you to think about the babies this holiday season, we appreciate you! #rhop #auntienickiforthewin.”

Gizelle’s partner in crime and fellow cast mate Robin Dixon also shared Gucci gifts from the “Moment 4 Life” rapper to her two sons. Minaj sent Robin’s school age boys Gucci wallets with a couple Benjamin’s tucked inside.

“These are some lucky and blessed boys!!! Thank you @nickiminaj for creating a truly awesome “moment for life” for Corey and Carter!!! We love you for life Queen.”

Karen Huger and Candiace Dillard did not take to social media to showcase any gifts from the mega star. While Wendy Osefo uploaded a video that she received gifts for her three children but was currently out of the county traveling.

The one housewife that felt some type a way about being left out was Mia Thornton. Thornton’s children didn’t receive anything from Minaj due to a small misunderstanding that was sorted out over several post and an apology from Thorton to Minaj on social media.

Glad to see Nicki Minaj take the high road.

Nicki Minaj Defends Jesy Nelson Amid Blackfish Claims

Jessie Nelson and Nicki Minaj

Jesy Nelson may not be getting an invite to the cookout. While many have shown the singer love after the release of her Nicki Minaj collab titled, “Boyz,” others seem to have a hard time accepting the singer’s features, claiming that the singer is black fishing and faking a “blaccent.”

This wouldn’t be the first time that Nelson was accused of black fishing, the singer previously responded to the claims in August, in an interview with The Guardian, sharing that her intention is not to offend anyone.

“I would never want to offend anyone, and that was really upsetting,” she stated. “I wasn’t aware that’s how people felt.” Nelson then begins to say she never noticed the negativity until after her departure from the band, Little Mix.  “The whole time I was in Little Mix I never got any of that. And then I came out of (the band) and people all of a sudden were saying it,” she stated.

“I wasn’t on social media around that time, so I let my team (deal with it) because that was when I’d just left. But I mean, like, I love Black culture. I love Black music. That’s all I know; it’s what I grew up on. I’m very aware that I’m a white British woman; I’ve never said that I wasn’t,” she continued.

Nicki Minaj also chimed in on the discussion to defend Nelson from claims that she is trying to portray that she is black by comparing Nelson to the Kardashians. Check out what Nicki had to say below.
