After Jennifer Hough accuses her of offering $500,000 to rescind her story, the 39-year-old Trinidadian femcee insists that she ‘never offered her any money in return for a statement.’
AceShowbiz –Nicki Minaj continued to fire back at Kenneth Petty’s sexual assault victim. Having been accused of trying to bribe Jennifer Hough in a harassment case, the “Anaconda” hitmaker denied the allegations.
For the record, Jennifer filed her lawsuit against Nicki and Kenneth in August. She accused the married couple of intentional infliction of emotional distress, harassment as well as witness intimidation.
Jennifer also claimed that Nicki sent her lawyers to her home to pressure her into withdrawing her rape allegations with a $500,000 offer. Now, in her filing, the “Starships” femcee set the record straight.
“During the call, I never asked her to change her story; I never offered her any money in return for a statement, and I did not threaten her with any type of harm if she chose not to provide a statement,” the hip-hop star stated. “In fact, I emphatically told her that I did not want her to lie about anything and to tell the truth about what she had just revealed to me only if she was comfortable with doing so.”
Jennifer allegedly told Nicki that the rape allegations could have been a “misunderstanding.” Thus, the Grammy nominee assumed that Jennifer was open to a financial payoff. Nicki quoted Jennifer as saying, “I’m not saying it didn’t happen, but maybe it was just a misunderstanding.”
“I could not believe what I had just heard,” Nicki explained in the filing. “I could not believe that it was so easy for this woman to imply that she may have exaggerated or lied after how much this man had suffered through as such a young boy.”
Nicki herself has shut down Jennifer’s other claim suggesting that she and her husband were affiliated with the Makk Balla Brims gang based in Queens, New York. “I was quickly surrounded by my fans, particularly in this instance because my pink Rolls Royce was in the direct sightline of apartment buildings across the street from where I had stopped,” she shared.
“While my husband and I recognized a few friends and acquaintances from the neighborhood that night, including Rico Danna, an artist whom I intend to sign to my label, none of them belong to any gang,” she continued. “Neither I, my husband, nor anyone I knew made any ‘gang’ signs that night.”
