Sex assault victim sues Nicki Minaj and husband Kenneth Petty
Rapper Nicki Minaj and her husband, Kenneth Petty, are being sued by a woman he was convicted of attempting to rape in 1994.
The woman, now 43, has filed a lawsuit alleging that the couple harassed her to try to make her take back her claims, according to the BBC.
Last year, Petty, who served four-and-a-half years in prison after pleading guilty to attempted rape of the then teenager, was arrested for failure to register as a sex offender.
The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, says she is living in hiding as she fears retaliation.
The musician’s legal team has not yet responded to the accusations, according to US media.
Ms Minaj and Petty began dating in 2018 and announced a year later that they were married. The couple have an 11-month-old son.
