The new suit claims Minaj and Petty have “directly and indirectly harassed” and threatened her to keep her mouth shut. She is claiming their actions have inflicted “emotional distress” upon her.

In court docs obtained by OK!, Hough claims the 38-year-old rap icon would make public comments about how her husband was “wrongfully accused” and that Hough had recanted her story, which she firmly denies.

Hough alleges that in March 2020, after Petty was arrested for failing to register as a sex offender in the state of California, the “Bang Bang” songstress offered to fly her and her family out to Los Angeles in exchange for her renouncing her rape claim.

The accuser says she declined Minaj’s offer and shortly after she and her family “suffered an onslaught of harassing calls and unsolicited visits.” She even goes as far to allege the “Seeing Green” rapper had members of her entourage reach out to her brother and offered $500,000 if she would change her story.

Hough then claims she was stalked by Minaj’s lawyers and they would show up to her home and try to convince her to disavow her claim. She stated that she began to “feel unsafe” at her own home.

After another alleged $20,000 cash bribe, to which she declined, Hough says she was forced to move from her residence in August 2020 and continues to live in fear of retaliation to this day.
