Nicki Minaj’s Husband’s Sexual Assault Lawsuit Stalls in Settlement Negotiations

May 30, 2023 | By Kali Girl

According to court documents obtained by Hip Hop DX, Kenneth Petty, Nicki Minaj’s husband, has allegedly defied a judge’s order to resolve the sexual assault lawsuit filed against him by Jennifer Hough.

In response, Hough, represented by her attorney Tyrone Blackburn, is now seeking legal intervention and has requested a scheduling order.

Mr. Blackburn addressed Judge Cho with a letter stating, “As you know, the Court provided the parties with an opportunity to engage in private mediation. The parties participated in private mediation, but unfortunately, we were unable to reach a settlement. We would like to have a scheduling conference with the court to set a scheduling order.”

In a revelation that emerged in March, it came to light that Nicki Minaj’s spouse had been evading court-ordered mediation with Hough, citing recurring bouts of illness.

Petty, in a series of delays, consistently postponed the mandated mediation session, citing his alleged sickness. However, Blackburn’s letter hinted at the possibility of Petty’s claims being disingenuous, at the very least.

An in-person status conference is scheduled for June 12 before Judge Cho. In legal terms, the scheduling order submitted by Blackburn is a judge’s pre-trial directive that establishes binding deadlines for specific events. It is often issued to ensure both parties meet discovery and exhibit admission deadlines in a case.
