Nicki Minaj’s Husband’s Sexual Assault Victim Speaks On Her Harassment Claims Against The Couple: I’m Tired Of Being Afraid
As previously reported, Jennifer Hough, filed a harassment lawsuit earlier this year against Nicki Minaj and her husband Kenneth Petty. According to Jennifer Hough, Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty have been harassing her in an attempt to make her recant her claims that Petty raped her when they were teenagers. Hough also says that the alleged intimidation she’s receiving from the couple started after Petty was arrested in California for failing to register as a sex offender in the state.
While chatting with the ladies of The Real, Hough became emotional as she explained everything she’s gone through because she refuses to shy away from her truth. When asked why she is publicly speaking up now Hough said,
“I’m tired of being afraid. I feel like the actions that were taken in regards to this whole situation have put me in a different type of fear at my age now. And it was wrong and I don’t want to be afraid anymore. So the only way not to be afraid is to continue to speak up.”
According to reports, Petty initially denied the rape allegations. However, he was charged with first-degree rape and pleaded guilty to attempted rape, for which he served roughly four years in prison. When asked if she feels that justice was served Hough replied,
“I don’t think I thought about justice per se because I was still blaming myself. I thought it was something that I did or didn’t do.”
While crying she added,
“I had to leave my family, I had to leave my home and I had to move away. So yeah, I never really gave it much thought.”
During her interview, Jennifer Hough shared that Nicki Minaj has contacted her asking her to take back the claims she has against her husband.
“In March of 2020 [Nicki Minaj] called me and she said that she got word that I was willing to help them out in a situation that I didn’t understand what she was referring to. She offered to fly me and my family to L.A.”
“I turned it down and I told her ‘woman to woman this really happened.’ And I hadn’t spoken to her since.”
When asked how has Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty been harassing her Hough explained,
“With them sending people to negotiate numbers as far as money is concerned with family members. Nicki is the one who personally reached out to me. She’s, you know, in regards to helping her – helping them in this situation. And then the threats that I received because I kept saying no to every offer [and] to every suggestion.”
“The last incident was when one of their associates put $20,000 on my lap and I still kept saying no. The last message I received was that I should have taken the money because they’re gonna use that money to put on my head.”
