Will Kenneth Petty be the ultimate doom for the acclaimed Queen of Rap?
Nicki Minaj married her childhood friend, Kenneth Petty, in 2019. The pair welcomed a son together, nicknamed “Papa bear,” the following year. Everything seemed sunshine and rainbows until Kenneth Petty refused to file as a sex offender while moving to California.
Jennifer Hough is the woman who accused Kenneth Petty of rape back in 1994. Kenneth Petty was sixteen years old during this time, and he did serve four years in jail. Even though prison time was served, all rapists have to register on the sex offender registry. According to Jennifer Hough, she was offered close to $20,000, by a friend of the Petty’s, for Hough to recant her story. Hough alleges that she was never contacted directly by Nicki Minaj, but she did speak to her.
Hough is suing Kenneth Petty for many things, but mostly witness intimidation. According to Hough, she was raped by Kenneth Petty on her way to school. Petty had a knife on him, and he pressed it against her back. Kenneth Petty raped the victim in a non disclosed house.
The plaintiff, Jennifer Hough claims that she has not worked in 2020 thanks to Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty. She has allegedly suffered paranoia, depression, and harassments from Minaj and Petty. During the interview on The Real Daytime, Hough sat with her lawyer to talk about the case.
Nicki Minaj has discussed the situation on her social media and podcast, but she never revealed the identity of Hough. On the other hand, many Nicki Minaj fans, regarded as the “Barbz”, are sending Hough a lot of hate on social media.
Kenneth Petty is scheduled for a sentence hearing on Jan. 24, 2022.
