Nicki Minaj's husband's attempted rape victim claims the rapper's associate threatened her by flashing guns and sending a message so scary she was forced to call the police.
As Radar previously reported, Kenneth Petty's victim – Jennifer Hough – filed a lawsuit last month against the rapper and her spouse, claiming they both "directly and indirectly intimidated" her by pressuring her to not speak about the attempted rape charges against Petty, which resurfaced last year when he was arrested for failing to register as a sex offender in California.
The attempted rape – for which Petty was convicted and served time – occurred in the mid-1990s.
In her filing, Hough claimed that the couple and their associates "threatened" and "harassed" her in an alleged attempt to get her to "recant her legitimate claim that Defendant Petty raped her."
According to a new report, Hough says the harassment has only gotten worse.
Minaj and Petty allegedly sent a childhood friend/associate known as "Black" from their neighborhood in Queens, New York, to negotiate with Hough.
"Black" supposedly offered Hough $20,000 in cash to withdraw her claims against Petty so that his name could be removed from the National Sex Offender Registry.
When she refused, Hough said she was contacted by various private detectives and attorneys, some of whom she said threatened her. She claims she was offered up to $500,000 but declined.
Last month, Petty struck a plea deal and accepted one charge of failing to register as a sex offender. Shortly after that, "Black" allegedly sent Hough a disturbing direct message on Instagram.
"Case is over now…Jon Wayne tv coming soon tell that b---h she will be expose case over now 20k huh…u know u don't f--ked uped [sic]…Jon wayne tv…you lying ass b---h, 20 thousand," "Black" allegedly sent Hough along with a video that ended with a photo of two guns and the caption, "Be safe out here lol.."
Hough said she was so scared that she filed a police report and has once again had to move to another state out of fear of being found and killed.
She is suing Minaj and Petty for witness intimidation and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
The case is ongoing.
