When Minaj and Petty first started dating in 2018, she faced criticism due to his past conviction for attempted rape in the 1990s. Now, Minaj herself is involved in his legal troubles. (Source: www.cheatsheet.com)

In August 2021, both Petty and Minaj herself were sued by Petty’s victim, a woman named Jennifer Hough, in civil court. Hough felt it was necessary after being harassed by Minaj and her team. (Source: www.cheatsheet.com Hough alleged in the lawsuit that Minaj and several of her associates offered her money to recant her story after Petty was arrested in 2020. She declined their offer and almost immediately she and her family “suffered an onslaught of harassing calls and unsolicited visits.” Hough claimed that Minaj had lawyers reach out to her brother and offered a $500,000 payment in exchange for her taking back her story. (Source:www.cheatsheet.com))

Hough was allegedly offered one more bribe of $20,000 and began to feel threatened, but she still declined the offer. According to Hough, Minaj continued to send lawyers to her home and pressure her into changing her story, and she eventually chose to move in August 2020 for her safety. Hough believes Minaj and Petty are guilty of intentional infliction of emotional distress, as well as harassment and witness intimidation. (Source: www.cheatsheet.com)
