Who is Jennifer Hough?

Jennifer Hough is the alleged victim who first made news when Nicki Minaj’s husband Petty apparently tried to rape her back in 1995. The latter was convicted of first-degree attempted rape. After the case opened, Minaj’s husband ended up in jail for four years. He was also ordered to register as a sex offender. Petty was later also charged for not registering for which he took a plea deal.

What does Jennifer Hough’s lawsuit allege?

Jennifer Hough’s lawsuit filed on August 13 in New York claims that it all started when Minaj and Petty began dating in late 2018. Minaj allegedly tried to get in touch with her around March 2020 after the latter’s hubby got arrested for not registering as a sex offender in California. The 38-year-old female emcee apparently tried to convince Hough to take back her accusation against Petty. According to TMZ, Hough refused to do so she for which she “suffered an onslaught of harassing calls and unsolicited visits."

It is also revealed that Minaj then allegedly tried bribing her by reaching out to Hough's brother and offering a $500K payment in exchange for a statement recanting her rape allegations against Petty. Hough in her lawsuit claims that she began to panic and felt unsafe as she was being harassed at home. Hough was allegedly also offered another bribe of $20K which came with an alleged threat to her safety. Hough then reportedly moved out of her house in August 2020 and has failed to work since May 2020 as a result. It is also believed that Nicki Minaj addressed the controversy in her song ‘Fractions’ where she rapped a line about it, “Accusations on them blogs and they all fictitious.”
