Jennifer Hough, the woman who filed a lawsuit against Nicki Minaj and her husband Kenneth Petty, has come forward to share the details of allegations of being raped by Petty in 1994 and the subsequent intimidation and harassment from the couple.
Speaking on Wednesday’s episode of The Real, Jennifer, who appeared on the talk show alongside her lawyer, Tyrone Blackburn, discussed the lawsuit she filed in August.
The lawsuit, Hough alleged that an associate of Minaj and Petty attempted to bribe her with money to recant her account of alleged 1994 rape, when she and Petty were both 16.
Hough claimed that she received a call from Minaj in March 2020. “She said that she got word that I was willing to help them out in a situation,” Hough told the show’s hosts. “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 haven’t spoken to her since.”
It is worthy to note that Petty was charged with first degree rape and ultimately pleaded guilty to attempted rape, for which he served more than four years in prison. For recently failing to register as a sex offender in California, he now faces 10 years in prison.
Now Hough addresses the sad drama. Watch her:
