Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty’s harassment accuser speaks out

Jennifer Hough, the woman who accused Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty of rape in 1994, spoke out against the couple in a new interview Wednesday.

Hough filed a lawsuit in August against Minaj and Petty, accusing the couple of “witness intimidation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, harassment, assault, battery, sexual assault, and sexual harassment.

She alleged that Petty “intimidated” and “harassed” “Plaintiff [Hough] not to speak out concerning the rape she experienced at the hands of Defendant Petty,” while claiming Minaj also “threatened” “Plaintiff [Hough] to recant her legitimate claim that Defendant Petty raped her.
Petty was arrested that day for first-degree rape and later pleaded guilty to attempted rape. He was sentenced to 18 to 54 months in prison. When asked if justice had been served as a result, Hough tearfully responded: “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. So I don’t think I thought about if I got justice. I just knew that he did what he did and he went to jail and I had to leave my family, I had to leave my home and I had to move away.”

According to the Aug. 13 filing, “Plaintiff [Hough] has not worked since May of 2020 due to severe depression, paranoia, constant moving, harassment, and threats from the Defendants [Minaj and Petty] and their associates. She is currently living in isolation out of fear of retaliation.”

Earlier this month, Petty pleaded guilty for failure to register as a sex offender in the state of California. He was charged after he was arrested at a traffic stop in Beverly Hills in 2019 and police discovered he had not registered as a sex offender in the state when he moved there from New York three years prior. In March 2020, he registered with the California Megan’s Law database, which tracks local sex offenders in California, where he and Minaj currently live with their infant son, and had his charges dropped by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office. But he still faced federal charges from the Department of Justice, which the Sept. 9-dated plea deal addresses. Petty is now scheduled for sentencing on Jan. 24, 2022.
