The 39-year-old rapper and her hubby, Kenneth Petty, are being sued by security guard Thomas Weidenmuller for an alleged assault incident, according to TMZ.

Weidenmuller — who worked as the head of security at one of Minaj's concerts in Germany in March 2019 — claimed in the suit that she chucked a shoe at him before Petty allegedly punched him square in the jaw, leaving him with a mountain of medical bills.

In the filing, the security guard reportedly alleged the "Starships" rapper became angry after another security guard accidentally let a male fan onto the stage while she was performing, causing her to call the female guard a "f***ing b***h."

After the female guard was visibly distraught, Weidenmuller reportedly claimed he stepped in to deescalate the situation, which was when Minaj allegedly threw her shoe at him yelling, "Who do you think you are?"

Weidenmuller was later called back to her dressing room to speak with her, where he said Petty stepped in with a sucker punch to the face that broke his jaw, it was reported.

He claimed in the suit that the damage to his jaw involved inserting "five plates in his face," causing him to need an additional six surgeries, it was reported. Weidenmuller is suing for an unspecified amount to cover his medical bills.

This isn't the first time the husband of the rap star has gotten caught up in legal troubles, as he is currently still being sued by his attempted rape victim, Jennifer Hough. Petty was previously convicted of first-degree attempted rape back in 1995, for which he spent four years behind bars.

Hough is now suing Petty for allegedly trying to convince her to recant her previous rape claim by bribing and threatening her.

Hough originally sued both Petty and Minaj for "directly and indirectly" harassing her, although the suit against the "Super Bass" singer was recently dropped, as OK! learned. She initially claimed Minaj and Petty made her "afraid" and "put me in a different type of fear," with their alleged threats.

Despite Minaj being off the hook, her lawyers still intend to fight for the money lost in legal expenses over the now-dropped case while the suit against Petty is still ongoing.
