Since 2010, Nicki Minaj has been one of the biggest names in music. This span of time has seen her become the most-successful female rapper of all-time. Rising to levels of success does come with backlash.
Nicki Minaj has faced heat from other rappers, since 2017. In 2019, Nicki married Kenneth Petty, an old boyfriend. Almost immediately, women began speaking out, and Jennifer Hough accused him of raping her, winning in court, and Petty had to register as a sex offender.
Jennifer Hough also sued Nicki Minaj, accusing her of witness intimidation. When the lawsuit arrived, Nicki and her team failed to reply, immediately. By the time they did respond, much time had passed.
Now, Nicki’s legal team is speaking, calling the delay in responding an “innocent mistake.” They go onto call Jennifer Hough’s lawsuit “frivolous.” In addition to asking her to drop the suit, they accused Hough of using this lawsuit to gain publicity from Minaj’s name.
