Jennifer Hough, the woman who is suing Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty over allegations including witness intimidation, harassment, and sexual assault appeared on “The Real” on Wednesday (September 22) for an exclusive sit-down.
Last month, Jennifer filed a lawsuit in New York claiming Nicki and husband pressured her to recant her account of Kenneth sexually assaulting her in 1994.
Jennifer was just 16-years-old when she says, Kenneth Petty, who was also 16, raped her after forcing her into a home a knife-point.
Kenneth was arrested that day and charged with first-degree rape. He subsequently pleaded guilty to attempted rape and served four and a half years in prison.
In her lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court, Jennifer Hough, now 43, said she and her family members started receiving communications from people claiming to be connected to Nicki Minaj and her husband.
The communications allegedly began after Kenneth was arrested in California for failing to register as a sex offender.
Nicki and Kenneth are accused of witness intimidation, harassment, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Ms. Hough is seeking unspecified damages.
During her sit-down on “The Real,” Jennifer Hough, with her attorney Tyrone Blackburn by her side, said she is now speaking out because she is “tired of being afraid.”

I pray Jennifer Hough gets the peace and healing she deserves.
