Trouble begins for Nicki Minaj. In 1995, a certain Jennifer Hough was confronted by Kenneth Petty who tried to rape her. Convicted of attempted rape in the first degree, he has since been obliged to register as a sex offender. A constraint to which he has also recently not complied according to the information of this Friday, August 13 from the American news site TMZ. More than two decades later, the young woman points to Nicki Minaj, the wife of her attacker, accusing him of harassment. Explanations.
According to documents cited by our colleagues across the Atlantic, the rapper and her husband would have “directly and indirectly harassed and threatened” Jennifer Hough, forcing her to silence about the attempted rape of which she was the victim. The latter deplores “an emotional distress”, caused by their actions, at the end of the year 2018, when Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty began their relationship. Still according to Jennifer Hough, the interpreter of Starships would have hammered that his beloved would have been accused “wrongly”, adding that the victim would have even retracted his accusation. What Jennifer Hough categorically denies. Worse still, in March 2020, the international star would have even offered the young woman to offer her a trip to Los Angeles with her family, in exchange for the retraction of her accusation of attempted rape against Kenneth Petty.
Did Nicki Minaj offer money to silence the victim?
When she declined Nicki Minaj’s invitation, Jennifer Hough and her entourage allegedly “suffered an attack of harassing calls and unsolicited visits.” The rapper is said to have even sought to contact Jennifer Hough’s brother in order to offer him a payment of $ 500,000 in exchange for, once again, the retraction of his charges of attempted rape. Alleged acts that could cost the rapper and her husband dearly: bribery is illegal across the United States.
