Hough is currently suing Petty and Nicki Minaj for harassment, as Hough claims they are trying to intimidate her into recanting her claims against Petty. Hough’s lawyer also claimed that Nicki and Kenneth are associated with the Makk Balla Brims, who allegedly threatened Hough in one of Nicki Minaj’s posts, writing, “Jennifer if you see this, the Makks are coming to get you.”
Petty addressed the allegations made by Hough, stating, “I never raped the Plaintiff and I deny her accusations of rape contained in the Amended Complaint. I also deny all of Plaintiff’s allegations in the Amended Complaint that I committed any improper conduct, sexual abuse and/or sexual assault. The sexual encounter between Plaintiff and I, which occurred 27 years ago, was consensual and Plaintiff was a willing participant.”
Petty went on to deny forcing Hough into a home, and he added that he pled guilty to the charges because he was told he was facing life in prison if he didn’t. Petty ended up taking a plea deal in 1995 and was sentenced to four years in prison.
“I did not force Plaintiff into a house, I did not force Plaintiff to have sex with me and I did not sexually or physically assault Plaintiff in any way. Nor did I ever threaten Plaintiff. I pled guilty to attempted rape, despite my innocence, because I was a scared 16-year-old kid and was told that my sentence would be 20 years to life if I did not plead guilty to attempted rape.”
