Nicki Minaj Denies Being Gang Affiliated to Judge
Nicki Minaj and her husband, Kenneth Petty are still battling a $20 million lawsuit against them. Recently Minaj told Judge Eric Vitaliano that she wasn’t affiliated with any gangs as Petty’s accuser, Jennifer Hough, had previously told the court.
Hough’s attorney claims that an Instagram Live video showed Nicki and her husband in Queens, New York associating with members of the Makk Balla Brims Blood gang.
“Neither I, my husband, nor anyone I knew made any “gang” signs that night. I did not mention [Hough] or this case that night. Nor did I hear anyone, including my husband, mention [Hough] or this case that night,” Nicki told the judge.
Hough claims she was threatened by the gang and was offered $500,000 by Minaj and Petty to recant her 1994 rape allegation against Petty.
PEOPLE reported Petty pled guilty in September 2021 and faces ten years in jail and a lifetime of supervision, sentencing will happen on January 24th, 2022.
