Nicki Minaj and her husband are being sued by the woman he was convicted of trying to rape in 1995.
She claims that they have directly and indirectly harassed her and threatened her to not speak about the incident, and she says they've inflicted emotional distress upon her as a result.
She says this started in late 2018, with Minaj allegedly making comments about how Petty was "wrongfully accused" and claiming she had recanted her story back then ... something she denies.
In March 2020 after Petty was arrested, she claims Minaj called her and offered to fly her and her family to L.A. in exchange for recanting her rape claims against Petty and helping him out.
She declined and she and her family "suffered an onslaught of harassing calls and unsolicited visits."
Nicki had people reach out to her brother and offer a $500k payment in exchange for a statement recanting her rape allegations against Petty.
Nicki sent lawyers to her home to try to pressure her into recanting her story, and she began to panic and feel unsafe because she was being harassed at home.
One more alleged cash bribe offer of $20k and another alleged threat to her safety, she moved from her home in August 2020 and continues to live in fear.
